Warning Nigerians to be careful not to fall victims of fraud, the Acting High Commission, Mr Paul Gibbard, in a twitter posts said “No one can guarantee you a job or a visa to Canada”.
“It is false news! Don’t be the victim of a scam. Shine your eyes well well o! If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. No one can guarantee you a job or a visa to Canada”, parts of the tweet read.
