Nigerians blast Youtuber, Emdee Tiamiyu for saying Nigerians lie, use schooling as a ploy to enter the UK

A Nigerian Youtuber, Emdee Tiamiyu is currently under heavy verbal attack on social media for suggesting that all 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.

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.

NigerianEye monitored some angry reactions from Nigerians on social media, a few of them are below.
