lol...our problem is not size Bro.. we are not bigger than US and China yet they are heaven on earth. The kind of money we have in Nigeria can sustain the whole of Africa but certain people have sworn that they will keep enriching their pockets

Lies!

Nigeria is a poor country let alone sustaining Africa.

You have said it all! Minus 2017 overstay numbers from 2018 visa quota to Nigeria you will see massive visa denials. Isn't that what is currently happening?

Even if Buhari leaves, your country will still be the same. Do you know how many Nigerians ran out of Nigeria when Jonathan was president? Last time I checked, they were also many. Split Nigeria into smaller parts and let everyone develop at their pace

No wonder they are refusing people visas anyhow, they should close their boarder and embassies. They should also close their visa application website, why would they be collecting money for visa since they know that they will not give. Is that not fraudulent and corruption.
If they refused visa, they should refund the visa money

MANY NIGERIANS OVERSEAS ARE ABUSING EVERY PRIVILEDGES GIVEN TO THEM.

This is what that is contributing to the difficulties those back home are facing with regards to getting the USA visa.

Nigeria has suddenly turned to Hell on Earth where many of her citizens detest to live in. If only we have sincere leaders from independence date till now perhaps Nigeria would have been one of the best place to live on Earth, undecided undecided now look at the most inept President we ever had, he is so clueless that his bloody name appeared twice in the English dictionary as something to abhor. Nigeria needs deliverance and that issue Nigeria needs deliverance from is Buhari at the moment.


we had sincere leaders after independent but for selfish ethic reason they where killed. Military was introduced & true federalism was abolish and Unitary system was established so that power will be at the center not regions by the same ethics colonialists. before that ethnic coup, each region is independent of another and developed at its own pace while contributing to the center, even universities where operated at regional level. now thesame ethics colonialists are the most disadvantaged with the system that they introduced. indeed karma is a MFK.. lol

Canadians don't need a visa to enter the U.S. and they can stay up to 6 months. Those canadians probably had work visa's which expired and I'm sure renewed it shortly after. The list makes no sense.

More than 700,000 foreigners who were supposed to leave the United States during a recent 12-month period overstayed their visas, according to U.S Department of Homeland Security.

More than 700,000 visitors refused to go back to their country and that include 21,000 of Nigerians.
This is definitely not a Nigerian thing then, I'm sure some people from country more better than Nigeria are included.
It's no coincidence that America is called God's own country.
Who no like better thing!

Huh! I had no idea that god was a beer swilling, gun toting, black man killing, kid killing genocidal maniac? The U.S. is great in a number of ways but its far from perfect and the moniker, gods own country has been used for many countries.

That being said, the U.S. is definitely better off than Nigeria which explains why people are refusing to return.

In one word? Money! Canada may be beautiful and peaceful but the money is sub par. If you want to get rich and in some cases, just have a job you need to go to the U.S.

Honestly, more Nigerians migrating to the U.S. isn't that bad for the African Americans. They should do it legally and it may be bad for Nigeria but for African Americans their numbers are declining as a % of the population and with that loss comes a loss of power and the ability to affect change. This is a bad thing given the fact that they're the most impoverished ethnic group in the country and the most discriminated against. Migration from Africa can help bolster their numbers in the face of the massive Asian and Latino Migration.

Man no think am o, they wont blacklist dem Canada, Germany and France. Nigeria made the top ten and they'd definitely fix eyes on us....

Besides the Canada ranking na fronting. The country is a drive away from America and they wont create stringent rules for granting then visas. Neither will they toughen the rules for even China. Na 3rd world cointry like us go suffer am

Means US is better for migrants. In that case many EE migrants have made a huge mistake. After reading this stats, I will think twice about migrating there

That's a lie unless you work for a Google. And canadians who work for a Google get valid visa easily.
