Every single individual knows the truth now unless those who like to deceive themselves. The emergence of social media has really exposed the lies we were told while growing up. People can now openly see going to America does not guarantee success. Living in America is no difference from living in any African country. America offers zero advantage for personal development and financial breakthrough

Bros what happened to you in America....abeg confess? This one no be ordinary eye. I'm guessing you had it really bad so you are making assiduous efforts to discourage people from going.

Let me tell you today, if you have a good, well paying job or venture in Naija there's no point...but if you are a civil servant in Osun and not been paid for 18 months or so, if you have an opportunity to get legit work papers in the US, you are better off.

There is a big difference between living in America and Nigeria even though I have not been there. In terms of a working system Nigeria can't be compared to America but becoming successful can be attained anywhere and has nothing to do with location. Nigeria is still a developing country

The argument on this thread is one sided sed..we should be looking at all angles of those people living in the USA...are we talking about those ones who don't have papers in the USA or the ones who have...which and which are we comparing to bank workers in Nigeria...Those ones who don't have papers shouldn't just come on this thread and start bragging. Even the ones who have papers are shocked and full of envy when they see Nigerians on birth tourism that can afford to pay those bills..it shocks them to their bone that can afford it and not bank on their "insurance"...make everybody choose the country wey pay am biko!

your story doesnt seems right,i feel you are lieing

you cant use department budget to fund a staff education,is that not fraud and stealing?,a staff going for further education(study leave) is either going on his own cash or if the staff is very valuable the company might decide to sponsor him partially or full and all processes are done in HR.

Something again you missed is that in Nigeria there are 23 years old ceos collecting fat salaries,so what is your point?

standard of living are different in both countries,i could be rich with $100 in Nigeria while in america $100 might be in the poverty range,truth be told,cost of living is cheaper in Nigeria than in america,A person earning $100,000 per annul salary might not be able to live a good life in Silicon Valley because of the high cost of Living.

there are people suffering in the US and also in Nigeria and i have met lot of Nigerians in the US doing menial jobs and they regretted their decisions in moving to the US,life is not easy anywhere and we understand Nigeria is not on per with the US but let the truth be told,life is not rosy in the US as marketed to the world.some Nigerians in the US would have been better off in Nigeria.

Please just name one.

I triple dare you, name one 23 year old CEO in Nigeria that's (in your word) "collecting" fat salaries.

dont even sweat it. Nigerians in america are broke ass, they can only fool the desperate ones down here. These folks here insulting me dont even have $200 left after paying their monthly bills. Traveling down to Nigeria for vacation is seen as an achievement to them and they envy their mates capable of visiting twice a year. People who cant afford to buy tickets are comparing their miserable life to those controlling their destiny down here

You are misunderstanding us. I am not saying Nigeria is better although it is easier to make it here as an illiterate, if you doubt me go to Aspanda, Alaba, Balogun, Lagos Island, Oshodi, Aba, Kano, Onisha and other main markets in Nigeria and see how people who have never schooled beyond primary six are making it.

What we are saying is that some Nigerians in America lie to show off wealth that is non existent even when they are suffering. Are you saying that some Nigerians are not suffering in US?

Can you make it in Nigeria with nothing more than Primary 6 certificate? YES!
Are there Nigeria with First class Bachelor degree education suffering? YES!
Now ask yourself how many Nigerian graduates are under-employed or without jobs!

Can you make it in the US (living legally) with nothing more than an High School Certificate? YES!
Are there Nigerians (staying legally) in the US with university education suffering? YES
Now ask yourself how many Nigerians (staying legally) in the US with university education are under-employed or without jobs!

I love that guy, great guy by the way!!!

But do you know

1. Andela was jointly founded in the U.S and Nigeria.

2. Jeremy Johnson (a US citizen) is presently the CEO of Andela.

3. Andela was conceived in an office in NYC, and funded by a Venture Capitalist (VC) in the US. With 3 white co-founders booking a one way ticket from NYC to Lagos to "start" Andela working from Ikoyi.

4. Christina Sass, present COO at Andela (also a US Citizen) dropped out of Harvard to pursue Andela.

5. When Iyinoluwa was 18, he worked as an intern with the World Youth Alliance in the United Nations Headquarters.

6. That $24 million grant didn't come from or out of Nigeria.

So please, Iyinoluwa was not a regular 23 year old Nigerian. He didn't grow up in Nigeria and never schooled here....dude most definitely has a dual citizenship!

Please Iyioluwa Aboyeji isn't a good example of a young Nigerian that "made it big". Give me the local bred ones that did anything tangible with their life. Let's shoot the age limit up to 25.

In simple terms, I dare you again (since you're advocating for Nigeria) to give me one name of a 25 year old Nigerian CEO "collecting" fat salary.

Anyone who says that Nigeria is better than the US is a stupid people. The people, look at the statistics!

Iyinoluwa was born and brought up in Nigeria. He attended Loyola Jesuit College in Abuja, graduated in 2009, and went to University of Waterloo, Cabada. So, Mr. Iyin is a full-flesh Nigerian who schooled in Nigeria and went on to study as an international student in Canada.

there are many young people in nigeria,doing great things,opening businesses,fashion houses and many others only dump youth complain instead of doing their own part.

Bankole Cardoso was born in Lagos to a banker, Afolabi Emmanuel Cardoso and a medical doctor, Ameyo Adadevoh. He attended Corona school, Ikoyi for his primary school, and Grange Secondary School, both in Lagos, before going to Rugby School in the United Kingdom for his GCSE and A-Levels. Afterwards, he moved to the US for his University education, attending Boston College (BC), to study Accounting and Business Management and graduated in 2010. He moved to New York City to work with Carlyle Group and as an associate at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC), where he earned his CPA (Certified Public Accountant) credentials.


Printivo, Hotels.ng, Kudi.ai, Flutterware, Aella Credit, Tetrizi ( or something, can't remember the correct name) are all Nigerian start ups that raised millions of dollars, not from and in Nigeria but from "this same" US you have spent the past months castigating!

Please tell me Iyinoluwa, Oluyomi, or Bankole are Nigerians that "made it in Nigeria"

Go on, tell me!

Tell me Iyioluwa, Oluyomi and Bankole would have made it to this scale if they didn't have "strong" ties with and in the US!

So I will rephrase my request.

I dare you yet again to give me one name of a 25 year old Nigerian CEO "collecting" fat salary with zero ties and help from the US!

I am really hoping you'd open my eyes tonight.

He had his secondary school education in Nigeria and Tertiary education in Canada; do you call that schooling in Nigeria? Iyinoluwa could afford over $30,000 yearly tuition at the University of Waterloo because he knew the value he was getting.

Nigeria frustrates young people. Do you wonder why parents spend FX to send their wards abroad to school? I like to think it's a way to "integrate" into their system.

How many Nigerians are on H1B visa in the US, how many have PR status across the world after completing a harmless undergraduate/post graduate degree?

This is not about start ups.....I apologize.

This is about you hating on Nigerians living in the US, while also celebrating the Young Nigerian CEOs living in Nigeria (eating off fat salaries coming from a US Purse).
