We are sorry to say but, this is true of all the Nigerian consulates in the top countries- UK, USA, Canada, Germany etc. All these countries treat Nigerians like trash in their embassies and now Nigerian embassies in these countries too.
A case in point, Nigerian High Commission in Atlanta, USA has 5 lines which they claim anyone can reach them on. There has never been a time any of our calls was received and if you think a voice mail will do, dream on. They have never gotten back to anyone. Worse still is their publicized inquiry e-mail which is not functional. This is so pathetic.
In Ottawa, Canada recently people who flew, drove or took the bus to come renew their passports express their frustration at the lack of notice about an office closure.
They claim that they have all scheduled appointments with the embassy for the renewal of their Nigerian passports only to arrive at the consulate to find notice of closure without prior notification. A particularly painful scenario is that of Oluwakemi Ola, a Nigerian student in Canada who spent $300 transporting herself to the embassy, slept in the bus station and would repeat the same thing if eventually her appointment is rescheduled.

Nigerian Ambassador to Canada should act fast on this…..
