This is not rocket science sha.
I had a verified Hong Kong PayPal that worked perfectly for me, but funding was a sweet bitter situation. When I heard on Monday via a report on Reuters that the American payment processing company had finally considered Nigeria, I deleted my Hong Kong account jeje and started filing my fingers waiting to get my exclusive Nigerian account on.
When the D-day arrived, God knows I was checking PayPal every now and then to see If I could see anywhere to register as Nigerian. I was checking paypal.com/ng all day and eventually got it around 7 pm after seeing a tweet by @4eyedmonk on Nigeria not being on the dropdown list of PayPal countries.
