NEWLY elected prime minister of Britain, Theresa May on Friday announced a new order which will see to the deportation of foreigners, Nigerians included, who earn less than the minimum threshold pegged at £35,000. According to the new law, foreigners who had lived in the country for more than five years will have to demonstrate earnings of more than £35,000 or be denied settlement in the UK.
