Nice Nice. If anything I've learnt that people are working hard and trying their best to legitimately migrate to canada for social, economic and other reasons. At the same time applicants are frustrated at all corners by the canadian goverment via its IRCC.
1. You have people spending and preparing for the language tests (english and french) only for IRCC to exclude them from draws for 7 months running.
2. You have people who met the requirements and paid at least CAD1,400 as well as medical fees only for IRCC to abandon their applications and keep them waiting for over one year now.
3. You have people with approved applications but were prevented from travelling by IRCC till their documents expired and IRCC ignoring them.
4. You also have married permanent residents unable to bring in their partners for close to 2 years as IRCC is ignoring them.
5.You also have permanent residents who have applied for PR cards but have been ignored thus they are unable to travel to their home country for one thing or the other.
They are not communicating to anyone. A deviation from the efficiency and standards first world countries are known for

DankemzI:Back in the 60s the efik, ijaw, ibibio and members of other tribes in the eastern region condemned Ojukwu's approach to working towards an igbo biafra ( a country where the igbos will dominate and the voice of other minority tribes will be disregarded). The minority tribes took sides with the federal forces further weakening the movement. Nnamdi Kanu took the same approach insisting that everyone who tied wrapper was igbo. He also did not value anybody's opinion other than his. Aside from fighting the FG he was fighting the SE governors, he was fighting asari, he was fighting Allen Onyema, he was fighting Ike Ekweremadu, he was fighting the police . Everyone with a different opinion. Even some of his associates within Ipob. It was only a matter of time . Kwame Nkurumah didnt get this far and his people set him up .

mrvitalis:Nope just my opinion. if Enugu is what he wants he should go for it.
|Politics / Re: Air Peace To Commence Regional, London Operations by tshtsh: 5:52pm On Jul 02|
mrvitalis:Then anambra is a better place for him. If he even got the enugu deal he would have been in and out of court multiple times especially after sirika leaves that seat. The civil servants in Nigeria's aviation agencies are very anti business (FAAN, NAMA, AIB) . They will frustrate any business man till death. Look at what they are doing to BiCourtney. Everyone attests to MM2 being the most profitable airport terminal in Nigeria and available data supports that but they are still trying to take it away from Bicourtney. GAT was meant to be under Bicourtney but they have taken the matter to court with a legal battle that has lasted close to or more than 10 years. Legend hotel (Harry Akande's project) is still in court as FAAN is draggin the place with his company. The founder passed on last year. After obasanjo left office rchard branson was frustrated out by FAAn among others. Under this kind of harsh condition it is better he focuses on the anambra airport (state owned) since Nigeria is yet to allow private airport projects.
|Politics / Re: Air Peace To Commence Regional, London Operations by tshtsh: 4:16pm On Jul 02|
I will sleep when I feel like whether you tell me or not but Allen Onyema is building a hanger in lagos. He paid FAAN over 200M for the land they gave to him. He even rejected the first one and was given another one after all the back and forth. I dont know why you believe he was hell bent on building a maintenance hub in Enugu when his friend/governor in his state (Anambra) promised him land. Anambra airport is likely to be a cargo and may be maintenance hub.
A business man does not operate based on sentiment. If you want to thrive in aviation in Nigeria of today you are better off having a base in Lagos and available data supports that. Allen Onyema knows this. So dont act like anambra or enugu airport will thrive above others if open to international flights. The recently declared airport free trade zones in Nigeria are outside the south east and will make aviation even thrive better in Port harcourt , abuja and lagos than any of south east's airports.

mrvitalis:If FG denied him land in enugu as you claim why did same FG grant him land at murtala mohammed airport Lagos ? Sirika's government favoured him much more Stella Oduah/Chidoka and he knows that.
|Politics / Re: Air Peace To Commence Regional, London Operations by tshtsh: 1:22pm On Jul 02|
Allen Onyema will build whatever he wants to build at Anambra airport. He pushed (on the operators side) for customs duty waiver and VAT waiver with the help of bushari's people (hadi sirika, senate president lawan, smart adeyemi, min of finance). He is pushing for other things . He has been given land at Lagos airport. If he wanted land at enugu he will have gotten it. I suspect the airport development in anambra (his state) made him ditch the enugu plan.

Tinubuadvocate:If you want africa or nigeria to grow then Nigerian grown investments need to be supported. Why did USA accuse AFDB president of theft ? Why did they accuse of onyema of laundering ? Why were they against Okonjo iweala's ascension to WTO DG position ? Why did they accuse Jim ovia and emefiele of tax evasion ? One thing I know is that its not out of love for Nigeria/Nigerians but for their interest.
|Travel / Re: Babawande Afolabi Launches Green Africa Airline, Acquires New Airplanes (Photos) by tshtsh: 11:23am On May 17|
I'm not sure any politician can fund a proper airline in Nigeria. It is very capital intensive and the profit margins are very low.
|Politics / Re: Update on developments in Anambra state-photos by tshtsh: 8:23pm On May 02|
I read some posts about how the airport is a run down and comparing it with $2bn airports globally. I went on youtube and watched the drone video of the project. My position is that anambra airport can compete with abuja airport when completed. I had the same feeling when I landed in abu dhabi in 2012 with the airport looking like a construction site with cranes and bulldozers all over the place. A look at abu dhabi airport today is mindblowing. With the layout of the anambra airport, if continuous investment is done over the next 4 - 8 years that project will be a thing to be proud of. Hopefully the govt that will take over from Obiano will not abandon the project and I also believe anambra investors will take advantage of opportunities to invest there. Its a state government airport and will not be subject to the bureaucracy of FAAN and its unions. I also believe air peace can tap into the market that airport will offer.My fear is that enugu airport will lose its relevance in the region but since the fed govt have refused to invest in it the way it ought to anambra can serve as the gateway airport to the south east.

what I see here is more of people not understanding how aircraft cooling works. In any case they dont need to know that as they paid for comfort. The aircraft APU must have broken down. I wonder why our ground handling companies dont make available external APUs to make up for bad aircraft APUs. At least that will guarantee that the cabin is cool while on ground

Unfortunately ideologies differ and the average politician makes noise to attract self gain as opposed to actual representation. This is why I believe more in the contribution of the people. If I had my way I wouldnt even pay taxes but as its part of the law I see it as an expense and not a tax. Case in point is the enugu airport runway renovation. After over a year of closure I watched the politicians of the southeast gather to celebrate/heap praises on the FG for a renovation that left the terminal building like that of a war-torn city. Knowing the capability of the igbo man I believe they deserve more than that and can build a befitting airport for themselves. From the FG side I don't think stella oduah and chidoka did a good job probably because they were from anambra and didn't feel the need to do something about the enugu airport. Rather a terminal renovation project was embarked upon as a means of making individual gains with minimal impact on the people. It is for this reason than I'm clamouring for the people of the region to see this airport project as a gateway to the region and not an anambra thing

Rocksvibes234:Good job. My prayer is that the people of south east embrace this project and invest in it. By investing in it I mean using the airport for travels and cargo. Let it not just be an anambra thing. Let it serve as the gateway airport to the southeast. If airpeace decides to launch flights to China from there let it be patronized. Nigeria of today and yesterday isn't willing to invest in the south east as much as it deserves but the people of south east can build the region through collaboration, support for one another and continuous investments

Nobody can tell. Before now there were lots of campaigns against the canadian government for conducting FSW draws and invite outland candidates while there were lots of temporary residents within canada uncertain about their future . Looks like the government has bowed to the pressure and are not eager about FSW draw till the travel restrictions is lifted.

How does the public policy exemption thing work ? I received ITA in November 2020, birthday was in December and I submitted e-apr in January. I believe my points dropped after by birthday but also read of a public policy exemption that could be applied but don't know how it works. Is it automatic or I have to apply for that too ?

Yes but I'll like to add that while in the pool make an effort to improve your points particularly the language points. A lot of people are interested in this program but seem to misunderstand some points. I'll give an example: A colleague of mine has been keen on applying for this program. He is 31 now and will be 32 in April. He told me about this desperately in august. Till date (6 months later) he is still telling me about how he preparing for IELTS as he wants to max it once. He has a masters degree in elect eng and a couple of years of experience but was unaware of the points loss due to age. I brought it to his attention yesterday and he was surprised to hear that. Now hoping that he'll find a test date, ace the test and get an ITA before the april
