Thanks bro.....the truth is that a friend of mine who went there thru schooling and now married told me to come over and try my luck. He was of the opinion that I have nothing to lose even though if it doesn't work out at the end. I am a 26 years old guy. Working with a bank as a contract staff for almost 4 years now earning 71k and just recently increased to 96k. I am not in any relationship for now. I just feel I can secure papers by marriage in the end.



Brother the voice of Man is the voice of God don’t waste anytime nor wait any longer

The more you keep waiting the more time keeps going

Am happy you got no time for any relationship

My brother no time to waste time


Get up and stand on your feet and put God first


Believe me you would have testimony


But make sure while you are going that you have up to 500k in your account resting here in Nigeria

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
We work and face challenges of life here too
I’m a resident in London UK
No be beans at all

I met a Taxify driver yesterday who said that a US visitors visa is all he needs to have a good life in the US and that a job is waiting for him. That got me cracking. When I told him that no one is going to employ him because he has to live as an illegal alien once his visa expires, it's like I was talking gibberish in his ears. Too many ignorant Nigerians.


Yes he would be an illegal Migrant, but with time he would stand on his feet, stop Discouraging people.

What most of you know how to do is to come o line to express your frustrations and depressions on others.

I m not one who gives room to madness, I'll pass and allow you wallow in your frustration.

Wearing suits to work everyday doesn't equate wealth my friend.
Most times, those doing some other jobs without packaging makes more money.

That was how I worked until I started my firm.

I noticed this in PH.

Which state be that bros and which kain work? Abeg I go like make you ja mi si
It is a factory. The factories here are so neat and safe. You'd be amazed.I work for a company that manufactures chevy,Toyota,Buick etc head lamps and light .

The hard part about factory jobs is the standing. Every work is done standing. Imagine standing for 12 hours every day (though there are breaks). The thought of what you'd take home every Friday will ginger you.

I'm sorry I can't mention the state for security reasons .
America is a great country. If you plan well before coming,you could have your EAD in less than a year after entry and possibly get your green not later than 2 years of entry.

If you have work permit then you go work tire cos work full everywhere if you are not too picky.

After tax you can have like £1500 which is the average earning after tax.

You will have savings of £500 every month after all expenses if you are not a waster.

And ofcourse many earn over £1500 after tax. So compare to Naija after expenses wettin go remain that is even if you earn enough to meet up your expenses.

Bros, I go like make we roll o!

One question I'd like to put to you.
How do people survive and manage to stay out of law enforcement agents when they are abroad unlawfully, that is, without their papers?

Between me and you who's frustrated, I don't take lies and deceit. Don't talk trash on what you don't know cos this platform is filled with people of diverse knowledge.

Can we have someone in the UK share their experience here. I have been seeing pple in the USA and Canada sharing theirs. Does it mean pple in the UK hardly make it? Pls ur stories will go a long way in preparing this young local boy for the task ahead. I mean some one who is surviving on illegal immigrant Visa or has now transited into the system in the UK.
