      It was organised by the British council. Tell the Nigerian government to host your own and stop ranting as if the ones that studied abroad are stopping you from hosting your own

      Exactly, these days, it’s becoming a waste without the opportunity to work in the UK upon graduating like it was in my time.

    I studied in the UK.

    The University of East London to be precise. I passed my 360 credits. So I have a full degree.

    What do my colleagues and classmates at the University of East London think of me?

    When my colleagues and classmates at the University of East London have gathered enough information of me based on the categories given by the British Council, they can vote for me.

    Any other person or persons may vote for me.

    I have contributed in many ways, so please give me the credit for once. Thanks.
