the visa nightmare

the visa drama in nigeria is really a thing of pain and embarassment. nigerians at foriegn embassies are treated like a bunch of beggars and are snubbed even when this visas are not for free.nigerians practically sleep at embassies in order to get visas to go to other countries,and those that cant leave their homes at ungodly hours to get there,so they can be attended to.the greatest culprits of this act are the american embassies,united kingdom and ironically our so called afriacn brothers south africa.

i no a person clost to me tht applied for 5yrs uk visa only to be rejected.he had bn travelling for like 20yrs to this same country going there top spend his money and invest in their economy only to be treated shabbily. this particular trip was to go and see his dayghter who had married,and relocated to the united kingdom.after applying and not being ansd for over a month,he was refused.reason,he had commited crimes in the uk and had been convicted of them,so therefore he could not be allowed in to their country.can u imagine .being accused of being a criminal.the government has to really look into is a matter of national pride.
