Reactions as Youtuber, Emdee Tiamiyu says Nigerians use study to gain UK Entry
Nigerian Youtuber, Emdee Tiamiyu, who specialises in helping Nigerians relocate to the United Kingdom, disclosed that Nigerians migrating to the UK use schooling as a ploy to gain entry into the country.
Tiamiyu made this known in an interview with BBC which went viral on Tuesday. He said, “So the student thing is not real. It is not like they need the degrees.
“They need the degree as an access road to come into the country, so a lot of this people their priorities shifted real fast.”
The video went viral after the UK enacted a law that will prevent Nigerian students, and others studying in the UK, from bringing family as dependents except under specific circumstances.
Tiamiyu, who is based in Birmingham, granted the interview in the wake of the new immigration rules that will prevent Nigerian students, and others studying in the UK, from bringing their families as dependants except under specific circumstances.
Under the new rule, which will take effect January 2024, the UK will remove the permission for international students to switch out of the student route and into work routes before their studies have been completed to prevent misuse of the visa system.
Criticisms have continued to trail the remarks of a Nigerian Youtuber, Emdee Tiamiyu, in an interview he had with the British Broadcasting Corporation.
Tiamiyu, who is known for advising Nigerians on studying in the United Kingdom, declared that many of them were not looking for new qualifications, but to start a new life abroad.
