Save Up to N10m: Man Estimates the Total Amount Required to Migrate to the UK for Singles, Married, Family

  • A Nigerian residing abroad has published a comprehensive estimate of how much it may cost to migrate to the United Kingdom
  • Although he clarified that it is only an estimate, his study is certain to give direction to Nigerians travelling as singles, married couples, and families
  • The number of Nigerians leaving for the UK is at an all-time high, particularly via studies

This is according to an estimate from Oludayo Sokunbi, a Doctoral Candidate at Concordia University.

In a detailed analysis posted on his Twitter page, he added that N10m proof of funds (POF) must be in the account for at least 28 days.
