Who knows how many people back home in Nigeria depends on him for survival......

Within a year of getting his licence to practice for Uk, u want go chop something angry grin


I find myself almost crying for him... very sad how it ended . He was the best graduating medical student from UI in his set .Hopefully after this Canada suspension he be able to practice again

But it's a lesson for us Nigerians. You have to behave yourself. Even getting to canada the annual form he still knowing answer No when it should be yes....how could he when daily mail and many news outlet carried the story. That was foolish of him to think you can hide such ...

I see it in the US and UK student thread,some of our people just like lying, some even when there absolutely no need to lie. Even following agents to do magic on applications... forgetting that even a simple lie can come back to bite you later

According to the included link, yes. https://doctors.cpso.on.ca/DoctorDetails/Uzoh-Chizoba-Christopher/0311669-111043
As in, abroad is not like Nigeria where so many things are overlooked or swept under the carpet. Good behaviour is key.

He had it all and I hope he finds his way back.
If he pulls through, he'll def thank his stars.

Wawu!!! Mehn this fellows sins are really haunting him. I read through and shuddered. Almost feeling sorry for him, I wonder how he is surviving. He should go and ask the people he offended for forgiveness, this amount of bad luck is abnormal.

Cheaper alternative. If you live in London, waka go Peckham. Ask most Paki stores that sell sims and repair fones dat you want to buy 9ja minutes. You can see Lyca, Lebara etc for 100-120mins for £6. After the minutes finish, u throw away the sim and yur village people will not be able to contact you. 1yr you can end up using 12-15sims to call 9ja

It's now no longer about the airlines accepting NHS covid results.......

2 requirements for airline passengers now into Nigeria - :

- Negative PCR test (privately tested) FTF......
- Payment through Nigerian's online portal(certificate of payment required prior), for a test to be conducted in Nigeria........

Thanks.... just an update.

Qatar Airline london to lagos accepted the NHS Free covid test yesterday and today, and when asked said yes for now they are still accepting it but can be subject to change later on

While some took advantage. A lady who owns a digital healthcare took advantage of stranded Nigerians offering £350 (maybe more self) for COVID test during the evacuation flights. Apparently she sends the swab test kits in bulk to another firm for a reduced price earning a whooping ~40% on just one kit.

I think it's the NHS trying to discourage people who need test to travel from using NHS testing facilities with the number of cases going up and limited test kit. They would rather people who are showing symptoms and key workers NHS.

I won't be surprised if it's the government asking airlines to reject NHS test results for use for flying.

To add my 2cents on the Binance platform, you can also do this (if you are not already aware):

1. On the platform, buy a crypto (USDT / BUSD / BTC / Ethereum etc.) with the Naira
2, Go to Trade, then P2P, change the currency at the top right hand corner from NGN / xx currency to GBP
3. Since you intend to sell the crypto for GBP, switch to Sell at the top left corner; this will bring peers that want to trade with you.
4. Look for a peer with a rate you are comfortable with, and one that has executed trades, then transact.
5. Transactions can be done through Paypal or Bank transfer.

I have done it a few times without issues and i was comfortable with the rate at the end. This is just an advice though wink

Thanks a great deal.

As a prospective nurse please house where can a nurse relocate to in UK to be able to work and get on the property ladder ASAP at reasonable cost compared to the high cost of doing such in the south without sacrificing job satisfaction and acceptance in terms of color and gender. Thanks for your input.

nice one bro! This is massive information to us that do regular inflow of cash from naija to Uk. I tried the trick and rate was a favorable one compared to when you want to change your Naira to pounds.

Don’t really know how to go about asking.
I’m a Physics Education Graduate with TRCN Certification.
I am Waiting for The lockdown on schools to be lifted so I can complete my Masters in Educational Psychology. I just have my external defense left. I have more than 4 years as a physics teacher in Nigeria though in a private school and I have a year plus experience as an educational psychologist working with students.
Please how can I apply to the U.K. as A teacher and what do I need to help aid the process. Thank you.

you are not being ignored. we just dont know. Please check on the shortage occupation list for the uk to see if your occupation is listed here. it increases your chances of finding somebody to sponsor a work visa for you. Goodluck

I just learned today that I was not randomised into the Placebo group, but was given the real thing in the Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID vaccine trials.
Happy to have helped humanity.
