Wike and Atiku who betrayed PDP the more. Some of you dont understand how northerners sees People from the south and how the play their politics of always them. Wike is fighting for the south while fools are taken him for the fool
There is nothing like north or south. Wike was and continues to fight for himself. He did all that in exchange for a ministerial slot. Prior to that he wanted to be VP to atiku. Even his G5 members have realized that it was all for Wike

Oh wow! Thought I’ve been gone for so long and no one would have recognized me! grin

But yeah, Canada has been hitting gbas gbos! But we always keep learning and re-strategizing!!! Trust me, shittt ain't easy here sad

Country keeps getting worse daily. Life as a whole, immigration process, especially if you live in BC, Ontario or maybe Alberta

I really feel for these new International Students coming in, especially when you don’t plan or have $$$ because………. Canada isn’t the way it was as at 2021-2023

Will I say Nigeria is better? Hell No!!!

So my advice? y’all get your shitttts together, plan extremely well and get in here! grin Let’s dominate in this country together, help each other, suffer together (maybe) grin till e better and eventually cast these fvcking Indians outta this country!!!


I wish everyone a smooth ride. Including me cheesy
As school don finish and I don begin find PR (almost mission impossible for this stupid BC ) angry

A friend already in Canada(studying) got expression of interest from a province but the employer and job title the agent filled during visa application is different from the one she filled in the pool.
I suggested that she add the 2 employers, share the hours of work equally and explained she was doing 2 jobs since they correlate somehow.

Pls, Whats are thought guys?

Hi House,

Please i am trying to enter into the Express entry pool with a profile with my Husband
I have two certificate which is my Bsc and my AAT serving as a 2 year diploma certificate
My Husband has a master's degree from UK
My working experience is more than 3 year
But for my husband, it does not give the option to pick the foreign skilled worker experience, so i cant put in any work experience for him but he has just 1 year before he went for his masters
He is a software developer and i am an auditor
I kept in all of this details and the CRS score came to a total of 477
I don't know if that is normal or something is wrong
I thought both i and my husband applying will give us a better CSR score
I all maxed out all the IELTS score

Do you think i have missed out something while inputting our details on the CRS
or that's just the score we have

What else can be done to improve the score at least to get to 500
Will you be able to attempt the french exam boost your score ? With IRCC applying as a couple can swing either way. If you have similar profiles it can boost your scores. But if your profiles are different (one with a masters degree and the other with a diploma) it could reduce the scores.

I envy U o
That's the difference between us. I'm a pure finance person. My strong hold is deposit mobilization in all sphere, given the right tools and space to work with. I have a 12 year experience in that regard also with very strong records in my previous organizations, do U think the international space can recruit my likes. I'm also willing to move and travel as often if given the opportunity. Thank U
The opportunity will always be there if you can align your skills to what is obtainable where you want to go to. In US/Canada for instance cash is a liability hence bankers do everything possible to extend good credit. In Nigeria its the other way round (mobilize deposits/restrict credit). In addition, marketing in these developed countries are data driven. As of when I left the bank I was working at, there was not BI team or system on ground. Hence I don't even know how these deposits are mobilized with leads. Hence learning the systems is also a good way to start and begin to streamline.

In the bank then software applications were constantly modified to suit the needs of big companies in a very unprofessional manner. Even when you ask for time to figure out the implications of a change, the marketers will escalate up to the line director who will overrule the head of technology. As a result systems were always failing, work stretched into the night on an almost daily basis, saturday + sunday work was normal and everyone was tired. To be able to get this jobs we all had to do a lot of learning outside to complement our day to day work.They use to say once you became an AGM you were made. Before there very eyes a DGM in IT resigned.
To get a car loan one needed to have worked at least 10 years except if they joined the bank at a senior grade. Imagine a car loan of less than 2M after working 10 years lol .

It's almost impossible to make such move in 18months o.
I am an AM/DM in investment banking space and I changed work thrice in the last one and half years. Potential employers were raising eyebrow that I moved around too quickly.
Seems U a banker also?
Lol. Not really. I was a software developer in the bank. The stress was just too much coming from human factors. Marketing constantly attacking and condemning members of the dev team, unprofessional practices and all. 80% - 90% of the dev team members I worked with quit the banking space. One even got a job in sierra leone that paid her $4,000 a month while the bank was still paying her 200k plus. Small experience (barely 1 year) I got in the E-payment system unit paved way for a dollar paying gig. Some moved to nairobi, kigali and were all earning 4 or 5 times their bank pay. After covid (2021 upwards) European and US companies began to hire developers from Africa in large numbers and most of us moved again ( I was in Johannesburg then). Got a software gig in Toronto and moved again.
Our bosses at the bank who were so used to the system to spending multiple years on one level and playing politics (praising the bosses) became bitter that people they trained are now earning much more than them. Those banks are actually destroying young people.

I'm not saying you would have moved from BO to Manager in 23 years (2001 - 2024) lol. I meant in 18 months. You still made a good move. Banking in Nigeria today is not sound professionally for the staff and is not likely to change anytime soon because the banks are making money and planting there people in government. Zenith bank ex GM is now the VP. A zenith bank ex-GM is not the MD of either NIPC or NEPC. Ex Zenith DGM is now the MD of NPA. An ex zenith MD was CBN gov till 2023. An ex Zenith GM is also serving as minister of trade or so. At the state level they are also there. Mind you these are people that worked with Jim Ovia directly when he was GMD/CEO.

Let me use myself as an example.
I met and surpassed my deposit target 4months in a Nigerian bank
I did about 5billion as a B.O
Even ordinary clap, I no chop, not to talk of promotion
One of the banks I worked with
My direct manager stayed 12 years as a DM before being promoted in 2022
I'm not saying she's not smart but she's a high level political player to have attained that height
Mind you, the question of how she got money to be the single largest shareholder crosses the mind
Remember the position she is promoted to is also subjected to CBN approval
Too many politics at the top
If you were a BO in 2001, you may have been promoted from BO to AM and Manager in 18 months. It was not unusual to start out at 25 and be a senior manager by 35. I'm sorry to say but your direct manager ought to have moved on to another bank or another sector. During my orientation at a bank as a newbie, one of the executive directors came to speak to us. We were 72. 69 contract staff and 3 permanent staff (my self and two others). One of the recruit contract staff asked him about this contract arrangement where you have people being on contract endlessly and even permanent staff spending many years on one level. He responded professionally but ended by saying "If I were you I wouldn't be a contract staff for 4 years". The signs were there to see but many prefer to get stuck in the system and continue to complain.
GMs are treated like Gods. EDs are treated like the owners of the universe. Timing is what made these people rise fast. Nothing special about them and today anytime I'm in Nigeria I meet with my former GMs and DGMs. I tell them about things we are doing and how they can improve there software development practices as well as run better systems. When I was in the bank I could stand outside a GM's office waiting endlessly. In their eyes a junior staff is worse than the floormat or trash. A bank MD once told me not to join a bank at any grade level below a manager. I learnt it the hard way after joining a bank as a junior staff. Glad I was able to exit the system after a short stint.
When I wanted to leave the bank I got offers from two other banks which I turned down because I felt the issues will be similar. I set my eyes on jobs abroad not because I didn't like Nigeria but I disliked that servitude culture. I never saw most of my bosses as superior to me and never felt inferior to them.

U don't get it
Zenith Bank is not a deposit bank
They do not have deposit target
It is more of a transactional bank
No HNI or Institution will ever deposit money with Zenith Bank based on rate
Yes, the government will do so only based on relationship but not on rates
No matter how good U are as a staff
How much can U get paid to be the largest single shareholder in the bank
There is something special about this lady beyond rising through the ranks
So say she came in as a Corper at age 23
How many years did she spend on each grade from ET to rise to GMD
She's smart, no doubt but she's a high level player in the system
Adora is a special staff of Zenith bank. Her deposit mobilization strength is unmatched and she rose pretty fast but the owner of the bank (Jim Ovia) deliberately kept her as Deputy MD with supervisory role over a lot zones/branches and she was never under any CEO . Jim ovia was her CEO over the years lol. It was only normal that at some point she emerged CEO but when it comes to areas of banking outside deposit mobilization, time will tell how her tenure will be.

Hmmmm
For Zenith Bank
The deposit they mobilize has to be government funds
They have some of the lowest rates in commercial banking
Whatever she is in the system must be a very very powerful one
She has to be extremely powerful
That position heavy gannnn and is also subject to CBN approval
I doubt if Zenith dey lose staff o because they hardly sack their staff
Staff resign on their own. Its got a good brand hence easy to use as a transit point. She rose through the ranks by consistently meeting her deposit target. As you know banking has other roles outside deposit mobilization. This was one of the reasons why she never worked out of the office in Lagos. Her role was basically public fund mobilization which she did well going by the rent seeking system Nigeria operates.
A lot of hardworking staff lose confidence in the system and leave. The ones who are loyal usually end up regretting. The mathematics is simple. I joined a bank at the age of 25 as an executive assistant. I was told then that it takes 4 or 5 years to move to the next level. Which meant if I was not exceptional, I would have stayed till age 29 to move to the next level. It didn't make sense to me and I noticed they operated a strict hierarchy system where it is assumed that you know nothing if you are below a manager and all that. Hence I resigned after 1 year and 2 months. Got a job at a Fintech in Johannesburg where I worked for one year before I got another job in Toronto and moved to Canada. People are stuck on one grade for 9 years (for instance deputy managers unable to move to manager or Senior managers unable to move to AGM rank). Everyone is just stuck and the banks don't care. But I also expect that people should care for themselves and know when to exit. There was a time people spent 6 months on one grade level before being promoted. The beneficiaries of those days are the present day directors in many banks.

Can her profile be compared to that of Herbert Wigwe ? Ebenezer Onyeagwu ? Peter Amangbo ? Adesola Adeduntan ? Ebitimi Banigo ? Fola Adeola ?

If you aren't trying to game the system, then just explain yourself with a letter of explanation. Keep it brief and straight to the point. No unwarranted repetitions. Explain how it is a gift deed and if possible, attach some evidence to proof that. Take the chance to state the source of the fund. Every visa officer will certainly be skeptical how you can raise such balance in a couple of days. If you had it before, why didn't you just attach it in the first place. That's what they'd be thinking. In addition, they'd be looking at your jobs and may not be able to find justification for raising such amount of money in that short time. In fact, typically with issues like POF like this one, it's just straight denial on grounds of insufficient POF, because they'd not expect that you can just raise the balance like that.
In any case, you have the chance to explain yourself and to attach the proofs they are expecting to see. You should know that the visa officer likely knows what has happened, but only giving you the chance to explain yourself. Take it wisely.
Same reason why I suggested that he/she just submits what was asked for. With anything Canada one has to be patient. The kind of quick fix culture we have in Nigeria doesnt work with anything Canada. If its account, take your time and build. If its credit history take your time and build. If its work experience take your time and build.

Good day everyone,

Please I need help and all contributions will be highly appreciated.

A friend received additional document request on the POF submitted and i am clueless on best way to respond. Let me explain what happened.

It's a family of 2. Husband and wide. The POF done was about 17m. They did gift deed for 7m for the wife (who is the PA). Gathered more funds from different sources and put in a mutual funds account. Did attestation to show that the money belongs to both of them.

They submitted the application with wife's SOA showing the transfer of the 7m and the mutual benefit certificate.

Now, they gor a request for SOA of the spouse account. This is where we are confused, we hustled out the balance of 12 in a couple of days and transferred to the husband's account within a space of 1 week. Showing that SOA is risky. Please what other options can we explore. Abeg help, this is important to them

First of all its not a good idea to game systems as it could make things difficult for the applicant and also make it harder for future applicants from the same country of origin. If the statement of account shows that the funds came in 12 days before submission and disappears after AOR, the applicants risks outright denial. Recall that the average six months balance is usually also requested. Since they have requested for the SOA , they should just submit with no explanation. If the visa officer requires additional information he/she will ask.

What percentage of the funds are they gifting you ? In canada there is hardly anything like free money outside from parents or someone very close. A cash gift from your boss may get the visa officer to ask questions.

Good day house, I recently joined the Express Entry pool and will like some advice/guidance to avoid errors and possibly increase my scores.

My scores currently stand at 464points and I shouldn't be losing points via age for another 9/10 months.

1.) My appointment letter doesn't include job roles, just indicating that I have been appointed to a certain role. Should this be a concern?

2.) I currently entered the pool as sales Engineer for NOC 62100 – Technical sales specialists - wholesale trade. Does it qualify as a stem related NOC. I'm asking against stem draws. I believe I can also switch to 21301 – Mechanical engineers. Please advice.

3.) If I receive an invitation to apply, would I need to submit Job reference for all my listed employments/NOCs or just my primary NOC? I would like to know so I do not give myself unnecessary stress with documentation.

4.) Can POF funds be provided in multiple accounts? E.g naira and dollar or savings and mutual funds.

5.) Is there a link that indicates the NOCs considered for Stem draws? Kindly share please.

6.) I added 16months work experience from my father's company where I'm also listed as a shareholder 15% of total shares. Hope this isn't an issue.

7.) Kindly advise how I can improve my scores or be better qualified for PNPs. I have a sibling in Alberta but they've put their draws on hold and I'm yet to get good evidence that they previously selected Sales Engineer/Mechanical Engineers or any other NOCs I may qualify for in their provincial draws.


I really anticipate your guidance guys.
Kindly get a reference letter that has all the required information. Regarding your other questions I'll suggest you make your application easy for whoever will review it. Some of our practices in Nigeria can come across as weird in Canada. IRCC isn't interactive. They make decisions based on documents submitted and may send a request for additional documents if they need more information. Only provide the required information. If you can collate your POF in a single account.

How do you even pay someone such money without a contract stating his Social Insurance Number (SIN) or company registeration number for easy tracking and legal protection?

Many people in the UK and Canada prey on Nigerians and dupe many of them by selling bogus sponsorships to them.

If you want to relocate and have no skill, learn the skill first. Skills like plumbing, carpentry and masonry are well sought after. It is people who have no skill who rush after easy jobs like care jobs and social work.

Please, avoid immigration promos from Nigerians in Nigeria or abroad. Many of them are out to scam you. To identify a scam, propose to pay them over the course of a year after you relocate.

They'd most likely not agree. That is the red flag you need.

Gurus in house please l have one question concerning inflow of cash deposit into my account.

I have a salary account that l also use for other businesses ( by this, l mean my brother send money into it when he wants to make some procurement for his business and this has been recurring for more than 5 months.)

In January l received a deposit that is about 6x my salary for the usual procurement he makes which also left the account in 2 days.

My question now is since the amount that was deposited is way more than my salary, will it be regarded as unusual inflow of cash ( and would l need to write an LOE) even though the money is no longer in my account and this has been a recurring deposit from my brother in my account?
Have you received ITA yet ? If you can, structure your finance to avoid IRCC stress. By structuring your finance I mean have a a fixed or closed to fixed inflow of funds into your account in a manner that shows a trend. Whether its once a month or one in 3 weeks or there about.

Moving to Canada as a student without loads of cash is equal to sufferhead. The hardship can be endured by a 21 or 23 year old single student but for a man in his 30s with a family it can feel like even taking yourself years back. I live and work in the GTA area of Ontario and I'll suggest you make your plans + more enquiries before you make the move.
There are lots of people doing great in Canada and I also got into Canada with two job offers (software engineering) before landing as a PR in 2022 and did okay like many others however take these two factors into consideration

1. A student is expected to bring in money for their fees and upkeep. These fees are usually 5 times more than what locals pay (citizens/PRs). Students also work restricted hours in low paying tough jobs . On the other hand, a PR has no such restriction and can compete for jobs without any hinderance with access to credit

2. Law is a regulated field in Canada hence you'll need to go through the licensing process which I heard takes about 2 years. During that 2 years you'll need money to finance your stay.

If you can, compete for a PR and resist the temptation to go in there as a student except you have tens of million to spare. The country is cashing out on international students from India, Nigeria , Pakistan who are attending Colleges studying cooked courses. Those colleges are like a backdoor route to working in Canada and you'll find yourself unsatisfied with the programs in most cases. The universities are expensive (CAD55,000 for a MA in Economics at Ottawa Uni) but offer better opportunities.

The express entry system (which I used to migrate to canada in 2022) has become very competitive with a high cutoff score 500+ which has pushed many to spend more and more money to get a study visa. At the end of studies the graduate will still find themselves competing for points in the express entry pool though with a higher score but the entire process can be lengthy, expensive and take you off your career.

I suggest you explore the express entry system and plan the transition well with the right information. Forgrt about agents

Isnt that because Canada prefers medical experience from other developed or selected countries rather than just the certificate?
A number of factors but I’ll sum it up as being unable to integrate into their profession. It takes some effort to make the transition but when people just move here and there without any proper plan they’ll be so unstable and hence find it hard to be stable.
