Please I want to ask a question.

What do Nigerians who left the country and travelled abroad do (what's their sources of income), because some left Nigeria with no hope of getting a job abroad.

And judging by the desperation of the youth about getting out of this country I think they have the believe that once they leave this country the odds are in their favour. I really want to know what they do

With this Kind of English, Britain and other English speaking Countries go decline you VISA grin grin

If you pay them equivalent of N1million a month ($3000/month at least),they would gladly do those jobs here without the fear of hiding from immigration officials.
So you have no point

Most of the Yorubas do odd jobs that pay very well if converted to naira.(Cleaning, care, security...) while some do high end white collar jobs too.

Most Igbos do runs (If you know you know) and only few do regular odd jobs.

I hardly come across hausas.


The Hausas issue has baffled me too. I believe they are all in the Nigerian Army. You are wrong about the Igbos though unless you are in Europe.

Not without papers can you do anything but the cat chomping, drug, scam etc; caregiver or hair braider is one you forgot.

Some go to school and get good jobs, others do odd jobs.

Lalasti.clala, Mynd44, this is good for traffic.
lol.
To me in the long run, a person doing an odd job in the diaspora is living a better life than a working class here. I mean just see the level of insecurity in Nigeria alone. Injustice everywhere. Police killing civilians. No roads in the south, no light in 2019. What is in this country to live for really?

The funny twist is that even after tax they make in one month what many employees in naija will make in a year.

Just that it is not easy until you have a work permit.
