Countries to visit 'without' a visa for Nigerian passport holders

A few times I've been discouraged by visa processes or just did not have enough time to deal with it. This led me to do some research.  I found a list of countries Nigerians can visit without visas here . On the other hand, there are some visas t hat may be more powerful than you think for Nigerian passport holders. W ith these visas you can easily visit many other countries without a visa…dang!  Nigerian passports Many of these countries believe that if you have a U.S , U.K , Schengen or Canadian visa, you must have gone through some thorough checks.

You might need a map to locate some of them, haahahaha.

I expected to be in the capital but was told last minute at HQ that that would not be the case. I was already on my way! I had tried to prepare myself but after that news, I was quite disoriented.

Retro Africa Abuja

To a large extent, my parents are responsible for my love for art in many ways. We grew up with art works hanging all around our house. My parents have a collection and once upon a time when we complained that there were too many of them in the house, they found a way to buy us over. This explains why when I saw this gallery on a friends story on Instagram, I asked my friends to meet up there. At the end of our visit, we were glad we stopped by. Retro Africa is in a residential neighbourhood and in a part of Asokoro that doesn't seem to have much. Without the right address, you might wonder if it even exists but as you drive in, this photo below welcomes you.
