I need an advice please, where can I get educational tablets for kids 3/5 years old, I bought one from China the last time my friend traveled but it did not last long before it got spoilt. Now I need 2 quality ones, is it advisable to buy from Nigeria or here. If it's better to buy here, what's the quality and the price range like.

Thanks in advance for your constant guidance

Like the previous poster, I can recommend the Amazon Fire tablets for children, I bought one.

I also agree with the recommended choice of the Amazon Fire for kids. Amazon fire is durable and with a variety of apps and programs for kids with access granted as required.
Ensure to get the tab protector along with it as it prevents the tab from cracking or getting spoilt when it falls.
There are other brands (apart from Apple, Samsung and Amazon) if you don't want the Amazon tab (which is the most kid-friendly of the 3) though but I can't say much about them since I don't have 1st hand experience about them.

I’m traveling on Thursday, do you think I will need a covid test?
Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by mimilyrics: 10:07am On Jan 12
According to the link and information available on .gov site, if you're arriving on Thursday, then it shouldn't apply to you but if you're arriving from 4am, on Friday, January 15, then you will definitely need a Covid-19 test result.
Your best bet will be to check your travel itinerary and/or speak to your airline to move your travel date, if possible.

@vooom

Have you considered getting bus pass. I don’t know which part you are in, but since there is lockdown in the uk and you won’t be able to move round, I will advice you set all your journey for one day. That day you get a “day bus pass”, set out early and do all what you want to do that day with the daily bus pass. That way you spend only mayb 4.6p or 5p and do all your runnings. Becos this one wey you won start to learn bicycle for road, make e no turn “Egugun be careful” matter ooo.

Giffgaff gives you unlimited texts and unlimited minutes and 500MB data at 6 quid a month, pay as you go.
Lebara is 5 quid a month, same unlimited texts and calls to UK numbers and I think 2 gig data (check).

Most telcos allow you to order a SIM online and they'll post it to you at no cost.

You'll have to be creditchecked for a contract.

Thank you so much. You guys are so reliable here.

If your friend is willing let him get a contract for you in his name, and after a few months in the country they can switch the name on the contract to yours. They'll need to do a credit check then, but hopefully you'd be able to pass checks for sim only contract.

Thank you very much.

For COVID matter, I think avoiding using the bus because of getting infected is a little too much cos the chances in supermarket, shopping centers and even your house door knob (not your room) is also a risky thing to do.

I have one rule, in whatever you do, don’t take your nose mask off or touch your face and if you must take off the mask (to use faceID), make sure to use a hand sanitizer. For me I go out and not take it off all day, I have accepted that it’s our new accessory. You enter a bus, give space and be careful. Come down use hand sanitizer immediately. But avoiding a bus for fear of COVID mean you will avoid going to supermarkets, you will also avoid delivery of grocery cos you don’t know who selected the items you ordered if he’s infected.

The earlier you start to live with the virus, the better for you Cos from what I am seeing, the Virus is gonna be around for some years. Not just because of the vaccines, but because of the people. People still have little or no idea about the virus and some still thinks it’s the government trying to control the people.

Given the government's own infection figures, that some 50 - 60k people a day are testing positive, then with those rates, I'm willing to bet that if every single person in the UK were to be tested, they'll find at least antibodies in everyone's blood.

Manchester. If you have any other enquiries it would be best to contact the Nigerian association there or the international office; they will be more than happy to help.

Carry more food than clothes. Don’t waste your money on shoes. Don’t carry red oil. Have a great flight.

You are given sanitisers and wipes inflight, the airline wipes down everywhere. If you touch a door knob, you wipe as well. In addition, you have your mask on all through.

It’s not airborne so flying is safe provided your unclean hand doesn’t go to your mouth, your mask is on and you keep distance between people.

Sis trust me no b so e b for airline oo, na so them say e go be, but no be so, them try but e no b like that. People still stand and wait for each other to come out from toilet and another person enter. What I know I can give them hand for na say they made sure no one removed their mask except when eating. That said

Make we enter airport, people plenty for airport ooo, both transit and arrival. In fact transit plenty and you know it’s different flight from different places. I didn’t see anyone wiping rails after it was used. Neither did I see anyone cleaning anywhere. Sometimes i go just say na God protect person, but when I see the people wey die, I no fit say God no won protect them na. The thing just de one kind. When I read doctors dying and all that, e go just be like say make No one come out at all cos it’s disheartening doctors losing their life trying to protect you, but when them say sit at home, everybody go de speak English and preach freedom for tv.

Madam sorry to see this happening to you but the truth is you were dishonest....
Look at the reasons for refusal?on several occasions you’ve declared that you’ve not been married before ...At the same time you married with two spouse simultaneously ?
..
My advice would be you go back to the drawing board and
(1) divorce one of your husbands and
(2) provide proof of this divorce
(3) Also in the future be honest and declare all your marriages....
(4) Take responsibility for your actions and stop blaming any agent ( you are an adult if you see someone using your details to commit fraud confront them .......
(5) let your current husband take lead and provide all the required proof that your marriage this time is genuine... Goodluck

What's the point of divorcing someone who doesn't exist. I think she should come clean and also hire a lawyer. Surprised there's no ban on that letter and if none, there's a chance.
