If you haven't solved the problem, have you contacted the Nigerian consulate in your country?

hey!

'Not more than 50 characters' means that every alphabet, space or punctuation in your essay should not be more than 50. I will advice to use MS Word to type your reply. At the bottom of the MS Word page where you have 'PAGE 1 of 2.....Number of words, and a symbol that looks like an open book. click on the number of words, you will see a list that will tell you how many characters your essay is.

Why not just put " visiting family" , or " tourism" , or something like that.

It doesn't need to be a long essay,

I had the same problem, but when I shortened my message it worked

Maybe try a different browser. Chrome worked for me
