- The Home secretary
- United Kingdom
Keith Jones, a blind 44 year old UK resident married Blessing, a Nigerian citizen in 2005. Because of wrong advice being given to them by home office and others Blessing is here only on a visitor's visa.
Information is that if Keith was wheelchair-bound, had speech difficulties or any other disability Blessing could change her visa status without returning to Nigeria as she is his hslper and carer but this does not apply in their case as Keith is just blind.
Petition to Home Secretary:
We, the undersigned, call on the home secretary to use his influence to enable Mrs. Blessing Jones of 16 Heathfield Close, Garnlydan Ebbw vale to change her visa status from a visitor to a permanent settler in UK without having to return to Nigeria where she would face homelessness, financial hardship and possibly be excluded by her family. Mrs. Jones is currently caring for and helping her husband who is completely blind and needs her help in a variety of ways. She is also an active part of the local Christian community and attends church with her husband regularly.
We consider that separating this couple who are joined under secular and God’s law would be inhumane and a violation of God’s law and would urge the home secretary to give as much urgent help as possible.
