Working In Abuja Vs Lagos by chccho(m): 10:43am On Dec 19, 2015
Hello peeps, I just wanted to share a Little bit of what my experience has been so far.

I was based in Abj for a while and stayed there for about 5yrs until I got tired and frustrated with my job and resigned last year. I was supposed to get paid my final entitlements which was a large chunk of money unfortunately till now as i speak the company didnt pay. My plan was to use the the proceeds from my final entitlement to start up my own biz Then I came back to lag, started hustling again, had to move back to family house and live with my parents again..its was really rough .till this year when I was lucky to get another job here in Lagos.. I can't lie the job has been ok, very close to my house and we are not really busy so I just they chill and collect my pay.

But my problem is I still miss Abj like mad, compared to Lagos wahala,I miss my privacy as a bachelor..Am so confused I feel like going back to Abj and starting all over again cos so far living with my parents after being alone for a long while has been hell..I also want to start a Lil biz of my own and I feel it will do well in Abj..As I speak I have been offered another job again by the grace of God and am thankful to God for it all,because e no easy to get job for this naija..but am still confused, am not happy probably because by now my plan was to be a bizman,am not happy living with my parents and I have to move out ASAP...I just don't know what to do am confused and I don't want to make another mistake.

Please I would appreciate wise and matured comments only

First of all,u need to ask yourself where do u see urself raising ur family?which environment wud u prefer they grow? Then secondly,critically analyse future prospects of the job ur about accepting like is there Job security?good pay?career long? And so on.
On personal terms tho,i think Abuja is more Ideal coupledd with the fact that ur back in ur father's house in long doesn't speak good of ur hussle.Think sharp tho,God bless!

Don't just give up everything in Lag and move to Abj to start all over.
Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
If you can start up something in Abj and then finally move, perfect!!

But what is with Lagos that you had to leave peaceful Abj?
The traffic?

You have a GOOD job in Lagos, close to your house. . Sir, u don't know what the Lord has done for you.

well, i might just want to have a second thought for the sake of formality.

Depends on your taste, tho!

Nawa ooo


C how op dey change work like clothes while millions of youth are hanging around looking for the smallest offer @least.


You need to thank God n be grateful first @op.


And lastly, before you accept the new offer, compare n contrast between the current one n the offer.


If I were you... I wouldn't change my occupation but my location. At least rent a mini self contain or so.

I'll take Lagos for now.

Do not despise early beginnings. It might not be convenient, but stay with your parents, it will enable you save a lot to build your business and return to abuja.

Interesting. It seems for once in the history of mankind, children may never be richer than their parents. It is generally expected that little Johnie will be richer than his father but the economy has become so bad that many folks are opting to stay single while living in their parent's house.

God will see you through.
