Travel / Re: Be Wary Of Northern Cyprus: FG Issues Travel Advisory For Nigerians by cosade(m): 6:58am On Oct 24
Graceudogwu:


Not all courses there are accredited. You can do your research to verify.

That does not make all educational certificates worthless as asserted by the poster I responded to.

If true, unaccredited courses is not limited to that country it happens in Nigeria too. It’s incumbent on applicants to do due diligence on courses they are applying for.

I school in south Cyprus.
You can check my youtube channel to get my personal experience of the island

Always do your research before going anywhere.
If you want to learn about South Cyprus, I have a full playlist about the study and general life there.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tC9dcHrCVOQ

I have been to Cyprus (it’s not South Cyprus) before, over thirty (30) countries as a matter of fact. I disagree on your point that educational certificates acquired from universities in Northern Cyprus are worthless, they aren’t. All universities in Northern Cyprus are accredited by the Ministry of Education of Turkey and recognized worldwide.

However, as earlier stated I can’t send my children there because it’s not a recognised country and thus no diplomatic channels available to seek redress.

It's not a recognised state. No country other than Turkey recognised Northern Cyprus as a country. So if you encounter any problems there, diplomatic support will be hard to come by. Also, your education there is worthless everywhere else except Turkey

I agree with all you said except on their education. It’s not worthless but I won’t send my children there for the other reasons you stated.

Northern Cyprus is not a recognised country, so you if run into any problem in that country it’s almost impossible for your home government render any help.

If you must travel out of Nigeria for greener pastures, do not venture moving to failed or unrecognised countries.

Foreign Affairs / Re: Why Is Ukraine Not Going Offensive by attacking Moscow by cosade(m): 10:59am On Mar 23
infofta:
They say the best form of defence is to attack.

With the slow pace of Russian troops on the ground due to Ukrainian resistance Russian has resulted to air strikes using long range cruise missiles and long range artillery and bombers resulting in civilian casualties inside Ukraine.

With the full scale invasion going on is it logical for Ukrainian military to start launching long range missiles and rockets like Hamas into Russian nearby cities like Moscow. We all know missile defence systems are not 100% effective.

Will this increase or decrease the pressure on Putin as Ukraine has nothing more to loss.

On the early days of the attacks, Putin (Russia) bombed most of Ukraine’s military installations and airports facilities. Thus, incapacitating Ukraine’s Air Force and Army to a great extent.

Travel / Re: Virgin UK Passport: Can My 7-Year-Old Travel Out Of Nigeria? by cosade(m): 7:35am On Feb 24
sunboy:


When leaving a country? Nah, only airline checks for the where you’re headed to. What country have you experienced this? I can learn from that.

Any traveler entering or leaving a country through border checkpoint (by air, land or sea) go through immigration, either directly or indirectly.

There is no controversy about travelers entering a country but the issue is about those exiting a country.

For countries that stamps passports on exiting, that point is the immigration point and is a direct one. Countries in this category, pay particular attention to the validity of the traveler’s stay, check that the person is not on INTERPOL wanted lists, among other things. Those that overstayed their visas are fined in some countries while some like UAE, detain such people for legal actions.

For countries that do not stamp passports on leaving, when you checked-in either online or at the counter, the traveler’s information are shared electronically with the border police. Most countries in this category, like USA and UK are concerned more about security (watching out for people on wanted lists etc.) and obtaining data for statistics, inter alia.

First you don’t need to quote me cos I’m not the OP.
2nd, I’ve never been in any country where upon leaving the country I had to pass through their immigration system again, never seen one country that requires that. Unless this is a Nigeria specific thing though, a Nigerian immigration officer could help shed light on this or call the airline for clarifications.

I quoted you because I responded to your tagged post.

There is no country you leave that you don’t do immigration either directly or indirectly. Directly in countries that stamp passports on exiting the country, and indirectly for countries that do not stamp passports which is usually done at check-in.

Not that hard, they can always apply for a Nigerian passport in the UK too.

@OP; yes he can travel without any immigration issues. He’s leaving Nigeria, should have any reason to present anything. Going back to Nigeria will require a visa or the Nigerian passport.



@OP: Your son needs Nigerian passport, if not he’ll have immigration issues at the airport. It’s the Nigerian passport that would be used to get out of Nigeria and the British passport to get into UK. Whoever has dual nationalities must travel with both countries’ passports else he must have the visa of the country he doesn’t have the passport.

You can’t call what she said “an opinion”.

An opinion is view or judgement formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.

Her statement could only have been said by someone privy to some facts or knowledge of what transpired at Dowen College. By now the Police should have invited her to help in the ongoing investigation by volunteering what she knew about the case.

Perez99:
Good day nairalanders.
I will make it very brief. Please I need your advice.
I've been a nairalander since 2016 but this is my first official post.

My father is a good, noble and humble man. A successful business man. He's very proud of us (his children), we're also proud of him. We're 3. I'm 29 years of age, the eldest and only son. He make sure we don't lack anything. We all went to one of the prestigious Private University in Nigeria. I and my immediate baby sis are graduate, while last born still in 300l.

The problem is that, my father don't know how to dress, he prefer to wear faded and worn out clothes. My dad drive highlander 2014 model. If my Dad comes down from his car, you will think he's a driver to an imaginary Boss because of the way he dressed.
Blessed memories of my beloved mom May her soul R.I.P. She was always complaining and sometimes my Dad won't listen to her.

I'm a good fashion designer, my love for fashion is topnotch. I also own a laundry store and a barbing store. I've been privileged to sew some clothes for comedian Buchi which he loves so much and he promised to patronize me again.

GOD in heaven knows how many lovely, mature and soft dress I've sew and bought for my father with my money. He only wears it once and won't wear it again, there are some he haven't put on at all. He celebrated his birthday August, I bought this nice shirt 18k for him as a gift. Till today he hasn't put it on.

Please note: money is not his problem. The other day he stopped by at my store, I and my boys were working. He noticed nobody was using one of my industrial machines. He asked and I said it was faulty. He said how much? I said 170k but I'll change it soon before January....(because I just wrapped my car from corolla to ES Lexus)....Before I could say Jack... Baba don send me 200k. I ordered the machine instantly.

See what happened this morning, He got an invitation to attend a meeting. The smartest way to dress for a highly regarded man like him is native wear.
So he gave me this faded black trouser turning white to brush for him, that he wanted to wear it for the meeting...See eh, It was so annoying. I went to his room gathered the nice, starched and ironed native I could gather and I told him to select one, that I won't brush that faded trouser. He started saying ... " I'm proving stubborn and all manner things"... I'm sure our tenants could hear our argument.

Please Nairalanders. What can I do to make my Dad dress well. I plan to set fire on those faded and worn out clothes but it will look so disrespectful. I'm sure his friends have accepted his mode of dressing.
My siblings and I are tired of complaining.

Please I need an advice!!!



While reading this, I was just smiling because you just described me. Our values are different! I don’t wear rings, wrist watches, necklaces etc. because these material things can’t define me.

Let your old man be! Better for everyone.

I'm not sure Cape Verde is a member of Ecowas. If they are not, then they are right to reject admittance with the travel certificate.

Cape Verde (Cabo Verde) is a member of ECOWAS.

There is a document called Ecowas travel document, informally called Ecowas passport, that can be used to travel to Ecowas countries in the place of the main international passport.

It’s called the ECOWAS Travel Certificate, yes it can also be used for traveling within the ECOWAS but some overzealous immigration officials in some countries (Cape Verde came to my mind now) may not honour it and deny holder entry into their country.

Your story does not add up. You don't need a passport to travel to Ghana by road. You only need it when flying, and ECOWAS passport can be used in place of international passport.

So, tell the truth...you might get the right help.

You need international passport to travel to Ghana by road or any other ECOWAS country.

10 Male Earrings You Can Wear in the Workplace
As a man wishing to wear earrings at the workplace, you have to ask if it’s affecting your professional image.

However, you shouldn’t stop being you; it merely means being mindful of the workplace too. That’s why subtle is much better in most cases.

Here we are going to look at some earrings suitable to the workplace that make you stylish but still professional. Let’s first look at the features to look out for when shopping for a pair.

Oga ,you've not traveled so don't sit here typing rubbish you have no knowledge of.

………… Finally, no matter what their (men) reason for wearing earrings, the practice will be considered by some as a statement, to others as cool, attractive, spiritual, or simply a component of your job; the practice is trendy and very common in today’s western culture. To those who feel that this is not really a cultural tradition that should be perpetuated, there is an anonymous quote that goes thus ‘respect people’s feelings. Even if it does not seem to mean anything to you, it could mean everything to them’.
