  1. I applied for 5yrs multiple visa sometimes last year precisely October, 2016 but was refused due to according to the clearance officer that I did not show prove of my circumstance in Nigeria, in other words, I did not submit evidence of my bank statement as to prove my income. 2. that I do not have right of appeal. I am ready to reapply with a letter explaining why I did not include bank statement in my first application, I’ve been visiting Uk since early 80’s and for the past 15yrs have been applying for 5yrs multiple visa without default. between 2014-2016 October, I did not travel due to my political engagements then I contested election, hence my reapplying. Yes, I did not attached my statement of account and did not travel within two years, that does not in my view, means that my circumstance was bad. I am reapplying again this time for 6 months multiple visa to visit my daughter who is a British citizen and had a baby in march and other family members in the UK, she have invited me with all required documents of hers. I have assembled all documents of my good-self including my statement of account. I wasn’t aware of the review process, I would have taken that advantage. consequently what are my chances and what do I need to know before payment and submitting my application. Thank You.
