Make no mistake guys, nobody who does not have interest in travelling or already abroad invest his time in the travel section. To do exactly what?
I mean it is practically impossible for someone who loves and is comfortable in Nigeria to spend his time from year to year, thread to thread, moniker to moniker disturbing himself/herself, drinking panadol for another person's headache that is none of his business. The only thing that would make someone behave that way is if they are jobless or just pure envy or they have a 10 year visa ban and they have sworn to be bitter till the 10 years finish.

When i had the view that i wanted to live in Nigeria, i never entered the travel section cos i had no interest in what was going on there. It was only when i changed my views and mind and wanted to relocate was when i started visiting travel section and following travel threads.

Some Nigerians are very funny, what they don't have or do not have the capacity or capability to have, they try to downplay and rubbish it using a combination of truths, half-truths and lies to buttress their point and hide their envy even when their opinion is not needed. Let me give you an example.

Someone builds a fine bungalow which he can only afford and his friend builds a fine duplex. Instead of appreciating the friend and be happy with him, he starts saying that bungalow is better than a duplex and that he will choose bungalow to duplex anytime, any day. He goes on to say that duplex is a death trap, many have fallen from the stairs and died, in fact, his grand mother fell from stairs and died. He will say all collapsed buildings are duplex and he will bring out references from the internet to show that 10 building collapsed last year and they are duplexes. He will say everything to make you feel that he is happy but if you read in between the lines you see envy written all over their comment. He will forget that he has been climbing stairs in the office, church or elsewhere and the buildings have not collapsed and he has not died. This is the power of envy.

This is exactly what is playing out here with the likes of timesup and few others. Envy has consumed him so much that he is now going insane over something that is none of his business. There are lots of people who have the same view but they do not come to travel section because it is of no use to them. One of my cousins prefers to live in Nigeria even though he can relocate if he wants to but despite being on nairaland, he does not come close to the travel section. But people like timesup that is making one million naira a day are choking on envy over people who are "suffering" abroad instead of enjoying his billions in peace.

Make we no wake up one day and read that he committed suicide leaving billions in his bank account behind over imaginary internet people that are travelling abroad ooo. Some might even be in Oshodi but claiming they are in the US yet timesup is already dieing because of it. Na waa ooo.
I think the best thing is to ignore him/her

It’s bad to abuse a Us visa.This is one of the reasons why the denial rate of US visa to Nigerians is on the increase.

No!

You will end up spending alot of money and not working.

To work anywhere in the USA, you must present your USA issued social security number and an id.

Tourism visa cannot provide any of those.

You can only obtain both when you are travelling to the US on an Immigrant visa and not a non-immigrant visa.

Say that to your useless life. What do you know little boy? When you are still under your parents roof, why won't you create stupid threads?

Start fending for yourself, only then you will understand what life entails. For now, you are still an adolescent that needs a lot of orientations about life not being a keypad worrior and creating rubbish threads littering the whole place up. How many useless threads have u seen someone like me created here?

If I create any thread it must be something that will benefit others. But you adolescent young boy who is yet to know what life entails will always rush to create threads criticising innocent people that do not even know you exist. I pray for you today young boy, may heavy sense fall on you tonight.
Stop dignifying that dimwit with a reply.

My type of thread, OP give us more update on how you got your visa. I believe I will leave naija one day and soon.

OP is just a typical Nigerian; when they 'climb with a ladder', they will throw it off so others can't come up with them.
They will rather want the spotlight to be on them while they show off their 'new life' as they now feel they have 'arrived'.

I said all these because from the first page when you started this thread, some people asked you how you got you visa and wished you could give advice to those who wish to come to the US.

You have deliberately refused to answer this question. This is page 12 of the thread and I know you will never answer the question.

Remember the saying that goes thus; 'a candle never looses its light by lighting other candles'.

Lol. Why do you need the OP to tell you how he travelled?

A simple Google search will show you the different types of immigrant and non immigrant visas available to the US.

It's obvious you didn't comprehend my post.
I said that "some people asked him how he got the visa".

Also, searching Google to know the various immigrant and non- immigrant visa is different from one's personal experience and process at getting the visa.

Please comprehend my post first before you mention me again.

Thanks.
