So if every youth leave Nigeria now that means NIGERIA will be better then the rest of us staying back will enjoy. I’m just thinking out loud angry
Nigeria would still be overpopulated. A lot of people have left already, yet we are where we are man.

I don't know about you but as for me 3 millions is more than enough to make me start up a business and nurture to grow. I currently have 2 cars that I use as uber and currently trying to buy another one. Guess what ? The money I used to start was not even up to a million. The profit from the first car and my monthly salaries was what I used to buy the second and about to buy the third one.



Too be successful in life having a dream is not a enough. You must be willing to sacrifice some pleasure ble and comfortable lifestyles to succeed
.

You are very right. But in Nigeria, you sa rifive the basics at a cost. Energy, Water, Healthcare, Education, Pollution, Bad roads, insecurity and any basics you can thinks of.

To service those basics and their reoccurring resultant effect is a luxury in Nigeria.

3M isn't much at all. I'll rather use that 3M to move to a better country. Think about your family bruh. When we're talking about like 30M plus now, I can stay back in Nigeria, invest in big projects. And I'll only travel outside for vacation or to go have my kids so they can be nationalities of some good countries.

This is the problem with some of our youths everyone wants to start big only few people are willing to start small. This is why I respect the igbos. Give him 3 million come back like 3 years later and see what her will do with that money. With vision, sacrifice and determination a person with 500k can succeed in Nigeria.

I just finished reading this content on nairametrics. The truth remains that you don't necessarily have to leave this country to make it in life. Oh and the notion that there is no good jobs around is a big lie. There are lots of good high paying jobs around. The question is, have you built yourself to land these jobs. These are not the jobs you get with your basic BSC from most Nigerian Universities.

A lot of you waste your time here being tribalistic while forgetting to add value to your self. Oh, in case you don't know, all these tribal battles most of you engage in have turned this platform to a playground. Most people looking for serious people don't come here anymore. I was talking to an HR consultant days back and she was looking for peeps to fill in some job vacancies with take-home of 500k and above monthly. I suggested she check on nairaland. She simply told me you don't see such calibre of people on nairaland. That she comes here only when she's looking for people for unserious roles like drivers, admin assistants and similar low ass jobs.

Leave nairaland and go and build yourself for the future.



The truth is that, there are still serious minded people like me). Another truth also is the unserious ones are way much more than the serious minded ones.


PS: please connect me to the HR, i need that job. God bless you richly.

4) mini super market
5) buying and selling of food stuffs in large quantities.
6) selling of grade A OK shoes and clothes.
7) mini gas refilling station
And many more.

The ideas are there but na capital to take start be my problem (for now)

Good businesses but do you think those are enough reasons to remain in Nigeria. I'll only support your idea only if you can multiply your profits from the business geometrically within a short period of time. You'll pay house rent, cater for your children(school fees and likes), what if you have issue with any of this businesses, what will you fall back on? (police harassment remaining constant) I'll rather travel out to a country where things work with that cash, there's always a lot of options to choose from there.

..and the quality of life? Do you even realise that there is noth9ng of substance your money can buy for you in that dump? You must bribe your way at every turn, buy generator, you cant even buy any car you want because there are no roads+ buying a very expensive car is an invitation for robbers and kidnappers. You have to build mega high wire fences and fence yourself in. Tell me how that is living .

Oga I am currently leaving a VERY comfortable life in Nigeria. I don't depend or expect anything from anyone or government in Nigeria. Every day I work hard and SMART to make sure I archive my goals for that day. As for security every country including America have their challenges.

My brother no let good news from far about business fool you oo. Of the businesses you've mentioned here, I've got first hand experience in at least 3-4 and I'd tell you Bro it's not always rosy inside like it looks from far oo cheesy

You see especially that Uber, except you be like me when no dey fear to fight or beat person, bros no do am ooo. If na you Wan drive the motor by yourself sha no wahala!

Mini gas refill station, didn't you read the news on how government wants to ban them now? Plus it's not rosy too oo... na town when better gas plants no many nai e go move.

Buying food to sell in large quantities, good business until those market women run you out of business Lol this na very personal experience.

Summary of what I'm saying Bro is this... Running a business in Nigeria ain't easy just take note. You may not have my kind of experience but 70% of people in the business know what I'm talking about.

The best businesses to invest into in Nigeria now are tech startups and Innovations. Businesses that already have a crowd should be avoided as much as possible. Better to create a niche than fight for recognition in an already saturated market

See eh, I don't know about others but to me, I prefer a system that works to making a whole lot of money. Hitherto, I thought of going entrepreneurial (fortunately, I've everything an entrepreneur needs to start) but after analysing the country's future and seeing how things are going, I'm not interested anymore. I prefer a salaried work in a place where things work. I've not seen electricity for more than a quarter! It has been generators all through and trust me, the maintenance, fuelling cost no be here.

Having lots of money is good oh but what is the point having such in a place where one gets harassed by SARS, potential to get kidnapped, poor health facilities, unemployed people around who can become criminals overnight, poor infrastructure, multiple taxation etc? The last few months have reinforced my interest in staying in a place where things work. Is it harassment from SARS? Multiple taxation? Poor infrastructure? Please note, I'm not complaining but pointing out the realities. As a result, I cannot blame anyone who is interested in relocating provided it's legal.

My grandfather told my father Nigeria will be better, my dad told me same. Should I tell my children same?

People do not leave simply because of the salary.

Have you considered standard of living?, Security, basic amenities, peace of mind, excellent emergency healthcare?

Being a millionaire or billionaire annot buy all of this.

As a millionaire, one kidnap can leave you broke in one fell swoop.
Even someone as rich and dangote can have a cardiac arrest and will not have time to board a private jet before he gives up.

Have you considered emigration as a means for better future for your kids?

False!When you working, the basics can't be your problem. What we call luxuries in Nigeria are basics. When you see your tax in action, trust me, you will be happy and feel fulfilled. Life is organised and planned here. You just have to work and things will automatically fall in place "IF" you cut your coat according to your size.

tribalism is what destroyed Nigeria and the only reason Nigeria will never rise to become a great nation.

I was converted to a full tribalist after seeing how other Nigerians I treat with fairness treat my own tribesmen, I became convinced that Nigeria has no future to be good, the country needs to be peacefully divided for the greater good of all Nigerians.


If Nigeria as a Yoruba only nation or Hausa only nation or Igbo only nation or Fulani only nation, they can be united to challenge the leaders to change things but Nigeria with its multiple tribes with their various selfish interest will never agree with other tribes to challenge government especially if it's their tribesmen that are in power.


You are absolutely write. That has been our biggest and will continue be our problem. See hong Kong for instance. They all speak one language, that why they where able to hold there ground and put there govt on the edge of sward to agree to there demands. Sowore is still luck up away in a detention camp for trying to do the same thing of which if he had succeeded, by now,the govt would have started implementing some of the demand for a better Nigeria if at all, the still remain in power . Even Sowore kinsmen are afraid to speak up for fear of been the un non. Dividing this country and everybody goes his separate ways is the best viable option , that way a yoruba,Hausa oh igbo people will unite and brings it bad govt leaders to it kneels. Other wise we are just deceiving our self. Nigeria as an entity will never work due to so many tribe involved

One thing I have been doing for almost all my life, is to always see the positive side of things. In every situation I try to think of a positive outcome because failing to do so have more bigger consequences.and that has help me a lot. Nigeria may not be an ideal place to succeed for some people but there are still people who are making it big legitimately in Nigeria even without connections.

I understand your point, but its far better to leave this country if you so desire a better quality of life.

You will agree with me that apart from corruption, nothing is working in Nigeria.

Nigeria isn't worth it. Believe me.

And again, why you think that some Nigerians that earn at least 1m on monthly basis as take home pay, still have to resign from their jobs and relocate with their families? Do you think they are mad?
