Udeh,who stopped over in London on his way from an official duty in Germany told
African Examiner that the Nigerian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom Dalhatu
Sarki Tafida has transformed the Commission from what it used to be in the past to a

Nigeria Embassy adding that regular visitors to the Northumberland Avenue office would
agree that things have improved generally in recent times compared to what it used to be

however agreed that there is a need for improvement in some areas.

Nigerian residents in the UK to be patient ,stating that the officials in London were making
serious efforts to improve on their services .

mothers and pregnant women whenever they visit the embassy.
According to Babatunde Oyeniran, a Nigerian who was at the embassy to procure a new
passport for his two year old son, '' the online application system of the embassy was
working perfectly'' adding that the good thing about it was the ease at which he was able
to follow the procedure using the Internet.
However, Mrs.Beatrice Okoli, who found the online system a little bit complicating said
'' to be honest, this place has actually been transformed but there is still a lot to improve

people were seen standing and moaning over inadequate seats .
