I understand you frustration. God will perfect your next application.
What's your timeline please? Was your medical passed? And which part of Europe did you apply from?
|Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 21 by Nelson2k: 3:04pm On Jun 13, 2022|
Canada needs to improve their visa application. The seems to be the only Advanced country that takes so long to approve or deny visa ( 12 weeks ). In 21st century?? That's insane
They need to improve their technology and manpower. Visa shouldn't take more than 10 days.

That's how it happens even in USA. Trump endorsed 57 aspirants and they all won their primary election. Buhari is not imposing anyone but will endorse his favorite, majority out of respect will obey.
|Politics / Re: Buhari Meets APC Governors Others Ahead Of Presidential Primary by Nelson2k: 11:34am On May 25, 2022|
Consensus have different meaning o. Once majority agree, it becomes consensus. Anyone who doesn'tagree will be disgraced at primary ground. No northern governor will disrespect buhari. Simple

author=Afolavid post=113041859]My Longggggggg PPPPPPPPPPPRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!! Gist!!!!!!!!!!
I honestly don't know where to start but I'll sha start somewhere. It's going to be long but hopefully, you'll enjoy reading it
Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone for the Likes, Shares and "Congratulations" messages that filled my mentions. I pray and hope that we all celebrate with everyone who's expecting their PPRs on this thread very very very soon. I'm sorry I'm just dropping this, it's been an extremely exhausting week of activities for me. Now to the main gist!
The desire to travel out of the country has been burning inside of me for a long time and It has always been USA on my mind but I get discouraged and/or carried away by one thing or the other most of the time. The last attempt I gave was in 2019, I wrote and applied to few US Universities but GRE was always the culprit, so I started reading, studying and preparing so hard to write GRE with a friend. She was very determined and motivated me a lot but I just got sick of the whole thing at a time, especially because I was so busy with my businesses and I didn't have much time. BTW, I was making some money from my business that time so I was just like - 'What am I finding in USA self when I'm making a lot of money here', 'what if I get there and one white police shoot me or kneel down on my neck' and so on Village people . Gradually, the travelling to US passion disappeared and I faced my business and life here. My friend eventually wrote GRE, got admission in the US with full funding + graduate assistantship and has been in the USA since late 2019. Amazing!!!
Fast forward to 2021, after I had witnessed the way the Government sprayed its citizens and denied it during the October 2020 protest, I was very sure nothing good is coming out of the country, at least not anytime soon, so I made up my mind to leave before the next election. At that time, Canada was the only country on my mind, so I started the Canada Express Entry process. I evaluated my credentials with WES, wrote IELTS and entered the pool but the FSW draws have been stopped then due to Covid19. I waited for the whole year without any draws and no solid assurance it will start anytime soon (info as at then). During the wait, my brother convinced me to go through the study route that it was faster than EE, which I'm also aware of but I knew I'd be spending a lot of money, almost four times more than I'd spend via Express entry, I was like why spend that much money via study route when my profile, credentials etc will give me good CRS scores and earn me ITA/PR via the EE route? ** Ijebu me After almost going bald due to the long wait, I decided to give the study route a shot in January 2022. Little did I know then that I was about to start an adventure that will be fun-filled, stressful, exhausting, tiring and at the same time, fulfilling.
January 2022, I applied to Fanshawe college free of charge via Applyboard, after submitting all my documents, they asked me for my WAEC certificate, something I didn't use throughout Uni till then, well, I quickly drove down to Osun state to collect it, my bills had accumulated in WAEC office but I sha paid it and collected the certificate. I uploaded it on my Applyboard dashboard and I was given admission in less than 24 hours. I was so happy when the admission letter dropped. Like play, like play, this was when I went all in for the kill... Fanshawe wanted me to pay almost $10k within 30 days, after reading the refund/withdrawal policy, I said no wahala and processed the payment via e-form A in February. Thanks a lot to Teemenzo who hinted me on a lot of things and motivated me, I just hitted him up via this thread since we're going to the same school in Canada, funny enough, we live like next street to each other without knowing so we linked up, shared experiences, encouraged ourselves and stuffs. Thanks a lot Bro, I pray and hope your PPR drops unfailingly this month. I can't wait to read your PPR gist ooh cuz you don too tryyyyyy.
Moving on, as a self employed and self sponsored applicant, I started making arrangements on how to gather all my documents, my NYSC certificate was the most difficult to get cuz I didn't collect it during my POP back then [Marlians no dey collect certificate nah ], I had to travel to Abuja at the NYSC Headquarters to collect it, them catch different cruise with me - "you are just coming for your certificate since 1914 blah blah blah", "haa, you don finally see job, na why you remember the certificate" etc. In my mind, I was like no be una fault, na me Bleep up. I got the Certificate and used that opportunity to undergo my medicals in Abuja (I already booked ahead).
When I got back from Abuja, I paid a guru here to write my SOP for me, he wrote a good SOP but I wasn't okay with it, I understand he wrote the normal things he's meant to write BUT my guy, "no one can write about you or hype you more than you" motivational speaker isonu I was like, at least, he has given me a format/layout/idea already (good part of it) so I re-wrote the SOP myself based on his structure/idea. After about 3 weeks of writing/editing, an SOP of 3 pages or so eventually became 8 pages when I finished. [Big thanks to Ominii, who reviewed the SOP for me free of charge, he pointed out a few corrections to make. I'm glad you have your PPR already as well See you in Canada!!!] The finished SOP was too good, my head dey always swell anytime I read am, I suppose print and frame am for my wall but unfortunately I had a virus attack after submission while looking for hacked Netflix to pass time, this rendered my PC useless and I lost all my soft copy Docs ** free things dey run belle true true * .
As a business person, it was easy to accumulate my POF, since my account always have good inflows and outflows. After getting all my documents ready, I started merging, demerging, unmerging until I got the perfect arrangement I wanted then I submitted my application on the 31st of March, 2022 (some minutes past 10PM) via the New IRCC Portal. My BIL dropped about 30 minutes later, I rushed to book my biometrics appointment, when I checked Lagos, the next available date was 2 weeks away (April 13 or so) Lagos and wahala , I checked Abuja and there were even slots for the next day self (friday) so I booked Biometrics in Abuja for Monday, April 4. Traveled all the way to Abuja again for Biometrics, did it on the 4th of April and was updated the same day. My upfront medical (which I did in February) was passed the next day. I logged into my portal everyday to see if there's any new changes, on April 8, 2022, my eligibility review started. Omo! This V.O dey motivate me ooh I was very sure my application will be fast, with the way the VO was working. Thank God I didn't wait for Lagos, Imagine!!! my eligibility review has already started on the 8th of April, while I'd have waited till April 13 thereabouts to do my Biometrics If I had insisted on doing it in Lagos. Everyday I'd read, read and read this thread until there's nothing to read again, then I'll move to the other travel threads. Na so so Canada dreams I dey dream every night until I got tired in my dreams and just took my mind off it, my application was air and water tight so sooner or later, PPR go drop Exactly a month after my application was submitted, I ordered GCMS notes to see the present concern of the VO, the GCMS note hasn't dropped till now (the ETA is May 30).
My brother had gotten admission in a University in British Columbia so he submitted his application on the 10th of May, he was also in the same situation I found myself in (2 weeks before he'd be able to do Biometrics in Lagos). So I advised him to go do it in Abuja. Since I also needed to take my mind off my application, I decided to go to Abuja with him, so we set out on a road trip to Abuja, drove all the way up to Abuja, was fun sha. Before leaving, my mind told me to take my passport with me just in case I get PPR but I was like 'I go need carry all my files be that, because of biometric slips and other docs' so I ignored and we set out. We got to Abuja, he did his biometrics the next day (Friday, May 13). On Saturday, we went to the market with my Big Sis (solely because I wanted to buy big travel bags), my brother discouraged me from buying the bags since I don't even have PPR yet not to talk of knowing when I'll be travelling. I insisted and bought the bags. (I get coconut head nah) 2 days later, which is the next working day, at exactly 1:52pm, I got a mail from IRCC, telling me to check my application for new messages, haaa! my heart started beating so fast, I couldn't even check it, I was so scared. My brother checked it for me, it was BVL and PPPRRRRR!!! Na so the jubilation start ooh. Travelled back to Lagos the following day, then sent my passport and docs to Abuja VAC the day after (Wednesday). The TRV has been affixed and already on its way back with Monday as EDT. LOI dropped this morning as well.

I think these are all the documents I submitted. There are some notable things I did in my application that made it a no brainer for me and the VO... I was sure of how almost perfect it is that I set aside some money for Judicial Review just in case I get a refusal (even though I might not do JR cuz it even takes more time than reapplication)
- My brother is the assistant-director in one of my companies (backed it up with Particulars of Directors, Memo, his ID card, etc.), so I stated it clearly in my SOP that he'll be the one managing both companies while I'm away. I also emphasized on the fact that the company makes a 7-figure profit monthly and he'll be sending 80% of the profits to my personal account every month (Company Docs shows 80%:20% shares) which makes it even perfect.
- I added the ongoing building project (pics, docs, proofs, etc.) and stated it clearly that I intend to live in there upon completion, when I return from Canada after my studies.
- I added the documents of my dad's property and stated that it is being managed and monitored by my Brothers and I.
- I also added pics, docs and estimated value of cars & equipment for sale in my auto biz and stated that the funds from the sales will be easily accessible to me since I'll be the one to review and approve the sales.
These are the things I can remember right now and that should be all. Thank you for reading my longggggg PPR gist and timeline, I hope it'll be useful to others one way or the other. I wish everyone who is expecting a positive result soonest. I'll stay tuned to this thread and keep giving back to the community that helped me. With the massive amount of information I got here in just a few months, Omo! Travel agents got nothing on me ooh. Cheers!!!!!!!!![/quote]
