NANS UK Seeks Assistance As Members Face Deportation

The Nigerian High Commissioner to the UK, Sarafa Ishola, has been urged to take action in the country’s admissions dilemma by the National Association of Nigerian Students’ United Kingdom chapter.

A letter from the chapter’s president, Micheal Obakhavbaye, stated that some students were in danger of being expelled because of issues with paying their tuition.

It was also reported that many people had trouble finding housing in the nation after being accepted to schools in the UK.

Dated November 18, 2022, the letter read in part, “Dear Ambassador Sarafa Isola. Thank you for all your efforts in making Nigerians great in the UK and the support you have rendered daily.
“I write regarding what Nigerian students in the UK have been going through recently.

“(Students are) unable to get decent accommodation due to failure to provide homeowners guarantors. 2. Cancelled enrolment due to Form A issues and Nigerian banks’ lackadaisical attitude.


“Point two is germane and urgent intervention is needed to avoid the deportation of a minimum of 11 Nigerian students in the UK. All the affected students are in University of Hull, England, UK.”

Obakhavbaye noted other steps had been taken to alert important authorities to the situation, but all to no avail.


“The affected students have e-mailed Karl Tumer, MP East Hull, but have yet to receive a response from him. Also, I tagged Hon. Abike Dabiri, Karl Turner MP and Federal Ministry of Education on Twitter to no avail.

“The late enrolment is not the fault of the affected students, but Nigerian banks refused to process their money and remit it to the school and also, the banks refused to give them their money when they asked for it.

“We seek your timely intervention in making our dreams of studying in the UK become realities,” he wrote
