Thanks for your reply.
There are two issues
She also needs to ask her employer to provide her with a letter which corroborates how she says she is paid.
If she has any certification of her qualifications for her being a legal practicioner then these also need to be submitted.
It's not just the family ties, it can be other financial obligations which would compel her to return. You have to try and show them that she has continuing obligations in Nigeria which will continue after the visit and therefore convince them that her is not a risk of overstay. Things like a letter from her employer stating he has a job (include with the letter referre to above) and is expected to return to continue that job, return flight tickets, evidence of continuing accommodation (eg. tenancy agreement of evidence of ownership of a property).
You should also explain that you are aware that any kind of overstay or (more importantly) any suggestion of deception would put your plans for permanent settlement in serious jeopardy and that there is not question that you would ever put that at risk.

I can't see that it would give any advantage really. The issues are as above, another reason to visit the UK (ie. to see her cousins) would not address these issues in any meaningful way as far as I can see.
Please submit a further question to the board if you wish for me to provide you with specific guidance on making a spouse visa application.
