Abuse And Collecting Bribes At The Philippines Embassy Gwarimpa, Abuja Nigeria by rotney33: 12:53pm On Dec 31, 2017
Due to various reason with the Higher education in Nigeria
Nigerian student have been trooping into the Philippines for their university studies in thousands!!!!
1. Nigerians are required to apply for visas and as of today pay an application fee of 15000naira which goes into the Philippines account.

2. They have to authenticate their documents at the foreign affairs in Manila, Philippines WHICH COST alot of money and in turn helps the Philippines economy

3. Various other things they have to pay for when they arrive , to study in the Philippines which means the Philippines is in turn is benefiting from the Nigerians.

The Nigerians are treated like Animals at the Philippines embassy in Gwarimpa Abuja, Nigeria
The gate men at the Philippines embassy Abuja Nigeria have the audacity to ask for bribes from citizens that obviously do not know their right. A gate man has no right to even look at your documents!

There is a lady also who is supposed to check for documents but instead abuse the Nigerians who go to the embassy. she calls them all sorts of names.
Her job is just to check the documents!!!!!


please I'M not here to questions about why Nigerians go to study in the Philippines but to be in the shoes of the Nigerian who are treated badly at the embassy

I went there myself just to understand the complains I have received. i personally do not need a visa to go to the Philippines but my attention was called on this, and i would like to get people to share their experience to please drop a message here so that people can be aware in Nigeria about what Nigerians are experiencing at the Philippines embassy Abuja Nigeria!!!.

it is the right of every human being to be treated well and respected and this case should be treated seriously


Thank you. please share this and post if you have ever been affected or heard anything about this

You are right. I had to go myself to see after the complain and it was disgusting. The treatment at the was the worst i have ever seen. I never saw something like that in all the countries i visited. The gate men were literally asking for bribe together with a lady who the embassy kept to check the documents. She was insulting the nigerian kids looking for visa. This kids were scared of her.

SAD

WHAT IS A NIGERIAN GOING TO DO IN THE PHILIPINES ??

THE COUNTRY IS VERY POOR, THEREFORE A NIGERIAN CANNOT CLAIM TO BE GO TO A GREENIER PASTURE.


NIGERIANS SHOULD MAKE AN EFFORT TO STUDY AND UNDERSTAND SOME OF THESE COUNTRIES THEY TRY TO RUN TO BECAUSE MANY OF THESE COUNTRIES ARE WORSE OFF THAN NIGERIA.

Last I checked, phillipinos are fond of leaving their countries.

For Nigerians to consider going to the Philippines to study, a state of emergency should be declared on the education sector. grin

What are they going there to study? I guess they wanna get a degree in underage prostitution and how western nations go there for sex tourism with girls as young as 9 years old.

Lol. You guys are funny. It is ok when you do it to yourselves but not when others do it to you. This is the danger of you letting policemen stand in the middle of traffic to collect bribe and not do anything about it. It is the repercussion for letting your citizens burn suspects in the streets and think it is the right thing to do. You think the outside world do not have internet? They do. They know Nigerians are corrupt as phuck so why shouldn't they play you with your own rules? They know you guys treat each other like trash and have zero respect for one another so why should they respect you? Guess what? They wouldn't dare do it to an American, German, Swiss, Canadian, and i dare say, Ghanaian. You know why? Because they know the citizens of these countries act mostly like human beings and deserve respect. Nigerians? Not so much. And keep blaming your leaders for your woes as if they are the problem.

OP, please who are you and why would anyone call your attention to Philippine embassy matter? Like this hasn't been going on for decades?

Are you just learning that all embassies in Nigeria just milk Nigerians? Did you or anyone you know get rejected a Phillipino visa? What the hell is anyone looking for in Philippine? Business i understand, what else does anyone need from Phillippine?

Who even reported their embassy to you should have first asked himself or herself what they went to the their embassy for to warrant gatemen asking for bribes.

In Nigeria, there are 'embassies' and there are 'EMBASSIES'. Just drive around Abuja and Lagos embassies and you can tell the difference between an embassy and an EMBASSY. Most EMBASSIES from better nations have a lot of people queuing up, the other 'embassies' look like grave-yards because nobody want to go there except the desperate Nigerians.

An average Phillipino is poorer than many Nigerians, so why would anyone care about going there? Do they want to get poorer than poor? It's like asking why a Nigerian is being treated badly at a Somalian embassy in Nigeria - if there's one. What's a Nigerian going there for? Unless the likes that prefer leaving being poor and pursue getting poorer because they just want to get out of Nigeria. Everyone has his motives.

You mentioned education, can they even understand the Phillipino language? Why waste ur money and time.

Bro abeg, no be all of us mumu. Street don wise.
