The IELTS is a standardized English language test which is accepted by most Australian, British, Canadian and New Zealand academic institutions. IELTS is the only Secure English Language Test approved by UK Visas and Immigration(UKVI). It also meets requirement for immigration to Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

The problem is that the test fee is so high and the result is valid for only two years after which one will need to take the test again.

Nigeria was colonised by the British and generally Nigerians speak English. Secondary schools and universities in Nigeria teach in English so we do not see a need for the test at all. We believe that a person who passes this test cannot automatically go back to not knowing how to speak English in two years or any number of years for that matter. 

There should be no validity period for test results and no one should be made to retake the test except such a person does not make a good result.
