Stop watching too many movies/wasting your time on the internet and start being productive. Has any ‘oyibo’ ever called you any of those names?
several times even today on messenger app

So, your wife's best bet is NOT TO RELOCATE OR RESIGN but to first go off sick if the victimization becomes unbearable and then go back and fight it out with them BUT ensuring she sticks to the contents of the organizations employee hand book (which she must devour during her time off sick) but she should NOT relocate to a different city and should NOT resign as the devil you know is better than the angel you don't know. she has no guarantee that a new job in a new city will be any better and at worst she should start looking for a job in the same Norwich but never resign before getting a new job as it is easier to get a job whilst you are still in one and any gaps on your CV WILL be used against you in the UK.

God bless you- I feel like you were speaking directly to me.

This is interesting!! So native Yoruba speakers think in Yoruba? Amazing! I ignorantly thought everyone thinks in English. Thanks for sharing.

There's also the so-called Gestapo shock treatment - if you are sleeping and someone wakes you suddenly with a loud noise (or in the Gestapo's case, probably a slap across the face), the language you speak then is the language you dream and think in and is usually your native language.

For instance, if you woke me suddenly like that, I'd say "What is it?!!". My Igbo grandmother on my mother's side, originally from the Owerri area but who spent years living in both Enugu, then Ibadan and Lagos and speaks fluent Yoruba and the Anambra dialect as well as English, will probably exclaim "O nini?" in her Owerri dialect. And so forth.

My brother are you aware you fellow Naija brother can use a white mans picture/ profile to chat you up ?.
Meanwhile you said you are unemployed and yet you are busy chatting white people online ? Are you teaching them online tutorial or something else ?…. A black person can still racially abuse you even in Nigeria wey u dey…
In conclusion I can categorically tell you that if you have the opportunity to move overseas you’ll grab it with all 4 legs. Then you go forget all these tails

This is not everyday or every week or months experience here, yes some people experience racism here the same way we have some bigots in Nigeria. Even in nairaland here you see the amount of hatred between tribes

What about senior men on this forum that are educating us on the lifestyle in uk... you think they didn't go through this racism shit right? Or do you think if they have thought like you they would have achieved some of the things they have today...see life is hard everywhere, but I'd rather choose where I make money, live comfortable, manage racism situations by having a thick skin, than living in poverty, unsecured environment and having nonsense hope that E GO BETTER,... didn't see what happened to people that wanted a change in the police department last year at the toll gate..they were killed and nothing was done with all the evidence.. guy wake up.. STOP SNORING ON THE BICYCLE .i will always say it anywhere anytime NIGERIA IS A COUNTRY BUILT ON LIES,.. where I work currently I'm a contract staff and we were promised after the first year we will be transferred to full time staff based on our performance... its 3years now we still dey contract.. no be lie be that... nothing built on lies is worth fighting for .. my regret is not seeing this thread years back... if not I won't be in Nigeria..

Thank you for your feedback. I will speak to the agency and see what my options might be.

@fatima04

The bank i took the loan and credit card from was different from my main bank. I have been paying off both loans before i left the UK through my main bank.

@ Lexusgs430

I deserve your criticism but I have been paying back the initial loan before i had to leave the UK abruptly, this was due to the loss of my mum. However, it is no excuse not to have made a plan to complete the payment. I take full responsibility for this.

You mentioned that this may have resulted in 2 CCJs. Checked what it meant and woah! this looks bad! I read that even if I pay it all in full, the CCJ would still be on my file and will most likely continue to have an impact until it is dropped after 6 years. I wasn't able to find out if this can be set aside if i complete the payment before the expiration of the 6 years. Planning to do a check on Trust Registry to see what the status is.

Thank you guys once again.

I've said it before and I will keep saying it,,,
Nigeria is the most racist country in the world....

Nigerians abroad are more racist than the white, especially those black American/British, they are more racist.
I know what I'm saying......

If you started making payments/come to an arrangement, it would be reflected on your credit report..... Once payment is cleared, it would be marked satisfied ........

Hi Tray2, I somehow stumbled on your post today and I'm really thrilled with your progress in the UK. My wife is a licensed Radiographer with HCPC with 10 years of MRI and CT scan experience but she hasn't been lucky with her job hunt for the past two years. I want to believe that she is probably not doing something right during her application for jobs. You also made mention of STATEMENT OF INFORMATION in your post above. Please what does it mean? Please can you help us with a template if need be. I have noticed her frustrations this past weeks because of the rejection mails she has so far received. Thanks as I await your swift response. Find below my email to send any templates that could be of help to us.

Kindly check your email. I have forwarded one to you. Good luck

You can forget about getting any job in the financial services industry.

I have seen job offers withdrawn over a default in mobile phone bill.

No worries. I myself have been put through the washing machine in the UK by employers for decades that now nothing fazes me and I now tackle them fire for fire as long as I know that I am in the right and that I've been with them for at least 2 years. Racism or expecting me to be subservient just because I am black and have an African accent is something my spirit (which is similar to Fela Kuti's own) will just never take from anyone especially seeing that in my younger days as a Medical student at UI, I dissected the human brain indepth and have seen that it is exactly the same as that of the white mans.
