Just recently, A father was exposed to the UK Border Agency for marrying his own daughter in order to get her a settled status!
Lets get the record straight here!
There is no homeless Asian or Indian, why, because they are marrying one another to get settled status!
The percentage of illegal marriages amongst the African community is very very low compare to that of the Asian/indian and European Community.
Are we then saying Illegal marriages is good? No, but in many ways justified! Because these guys are Nigerians, a lot of emphasis is been laid here, we are the shadow of ourselves!
A guy resides in a Country for 30 hard years, working his socks off, paying his tax and thereby helping building the nation, shouldn't he be given an automatic entitlement to bring his family here? It should not have resulted to this demeaned, disgraceful, shameful and open rebuke from the public had the govt. done her own part.
I believe slavery was over decades ago, why should we still be living like a slave? You come to this country with a student visa, you have to live here legally for ten years b4 you're entitle to settlement status except perhaps you get married to a British citizen, or get a job that makes you qualify than your British counterpart.
If you here illegally(your visa expires, tourist visa), you have to wait 14 years b4 you're entitle for settlement. Now tell me, do those that fall in these categories have to wait for that long before seeing their families back home?
In this country, your status matters a lot! if you have a solid foundation the sky is the limit for you. And if you don't, and still don't want to find a solution to it, then I guess the 'early morning' job hasn't taught you a lesson.
Thousands of our beautiful ladies ends up in the 'care home' job, even some of our guys are also joining for lack of working papers! The 'Security' (Ode, gateman) job is shaking up quickly. A lot of our brothers have been deported in this sector for working with fake documents.
Pls tell me, what should we do to find a lasting solution to this problem?
God bless you all, God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria
