  1. Its frustrating, thats what you get in Nigeria and that is why this statement is common. Corruption will make them cut corners not providing the best for the citizens. Having a weak website like thisvto serve thousands is a shame to the Nigerian Government and you have them still defending their sorry ass.. The website is not functioning. Its give an error message saying that there was an error processing your forn that you should contact admin or try again later. Lame and stupid message for timid Nigerians but not me also try and call no answer. One of the number ia switched off while the other is never answered. That is the Nigeria trade mark where its only done to suffer the masses except you give tip. I hate the system something very simple is made to be complicated purposely. Its a shame
