”Then I told him no, that ! am not interested. “He just started laughing at me and told me he was going to introduce me to a senator, that his company in the UK need workers, so he could start my visa processing.

“I have no option than to accept the offer. After two day, the man came to the building site again and told me the senator wanted to see me, so we could start the visa processing, then I dropped my shovel and head pan and went to bath immediately.

”Mr okoro handed me over to one young man wearing a suit. He told me everything about the trip and I then told him Mr Okoro had already explained everything to me and I told him had accepted to work in UK.”
