Woman who makes N400k seeks advice after getting visa to work in UK

A Nigerian businesswoman has appealed for advise on the best choice to make between two beneficial options.

She said that she got a UK visa to work as a senior care worker but she is not sure if she should abandon her business in Nigeria.

According to the woman, she makes an average of N400k from the food business she runs and she does not know if traveling out of the country is the best decision. The food vendor’s family will also be relocating with her.

She wrote to a scholarship agent on Twitter known as Oludayo Sokunbi and he inturn posted the message she sent to him.

He tweeted: “This woman will be earning 24k pounds annually and will become PR (called ILR) in UK🇬🇧 after 5 years. She is moving with her family.

She is asking me if the decision to move is right compared to her 400k Naira food business. Twitter people, see this question in my dm.

In the message, the woman wrote; “Good evening sir. Please I have a question. I’ve gotten my UK visa for a senior care worker but I’m not sure if I’m making the right decision because I make #400,000 on the average in my food stuff business. Please can you advise me? Thank you”

Meanwhile, CorrectNG reported that the United Kingdom government has begun talks with organisers of Nigerian Grammy winner, Damini “Burna Boy” Damini‘s show in Lagos with a view towards partnering to give the entertainment sector a boost.

Impressed by Burna Boy’s ‘Lagos Loves Damini’ concert which held on January 1, 2023, a meeting was held with the organisers at the British Deputy High Commission in Lagos on Friday.

NAN reports that Creative Economy Catalyst Ltd, the main promoter of the show, Kaycee Kennedy and Country Director, UK Department for International Trade, Chim Chalemera were at the meeting.

Kennedy, while giving his remarks said the positives of the concert include that it was the first African Show listed on Burna Boy’s official website with ticketing details.

The promoter explained that ‘Lagos Loves Damini’ was the biggest outdoor music concert with over 30,000 audiences.

He added that other major positives included the fact that there were no reported casualties, theft, sexual assault or harassment.

Kennedy, however, observed that in spite of the positives, there were some challenges and learning points.

He said that the desire to address the main challenges and negatives encountered at the Lagos show necessitated the visit to the British Deputy High Commission to meet with the UK Department for International Trade and discuss possible collaboration for future events.
