I think they were referring to the fact that the interview is at the Lagos consulate (not an embassy). The embassy in Nigeria is in Abuja.

I will correct this then...thanks

When I filed my taxes, I could not add my husband because he was in Nigeria and did not have a social, so the tax rep told me I had to file single and not MFS and I also couldn't file HOH..It bothered me because I knew this was going to cause us an issue, but apparently the Lagos Consulate was aware of this happening and people still got approved and me being one..However, as soon as my husband got here, we had our 2016 and 2017 taxes ammended..I am not suggesting to you to do this, but if need be, apply for an ITIN for your spouse so that way you will be at ease..
