Hi Curtis,

Its a bit difficult to answer your question without knowing more details. Where is the lady from? Does she have a work permit? How is she legally allowed to remain in Nigeria?

Most expats in Nigeria find it is better to have their salary paid into a foreign bank account, rather than going to the trouble of opening a local one. Transcation fees on foreign bank accounts are high though. You can read more detail about this on the Banking, Money and Taxes for Nigeria page.

Please let me know if you need more help.
