Stop saying rubbish. All dis your theory talk here nor go work for Nigeria. You want sell any product at a profit margin of #5760 to 60,000 people grin grin grin why you never b billionaire by now, everybody suppose don be millionaires na.
And who tell you say u nor go fit sell products make people want at $20-$50 for USA and make billions below 25years? ( Kylie Jenner example) name any Nigerian tongue tongue

Doctors
.......
Guy you nor just know wetin you de talk about.
The annual salary doctors de receive range between 150,000 to 300k.
(Your disposable income is slightly over one thousand pounds per week after tax) grin grin grin even assistant nurse earn more than 1k per week after tax. And still yet Nigerian doctors de run leave the country for d bad leaders. In developed countries salaries isn’t everything. Last year Canadian govt say dem wan increases doctors wages but the doctors said no’ nor because dem nor like money or anything but e go affect the tax payer.


(I regret coming to Europe, thankfully Ive re strategized for Nigeria,and I can tell you it's been positive despite all the screams about Nigeria being a horrible country) na illegal visa you take go or you cross sea enter Italy!!

Finally how many billionaires you know below 35 years wan make their money clean ?

1.

I was talking about Europe in relation to doctor's salary. See attached.

2. Competition is stiff in Europe in terms of entrepreneurship, however in Nigeria there's an investment vacuum. If you target bear necessities to sell and ensure you can make available those products at a cheaper rate , u don hammer be that.

Do u realize how much money women are making by selling ordinary bleaching creams.. Bob risky is an example.


We have a big market that alone leaves room for potential wealth opportunities.

3

China and India are churning out billionaires like crazy, eg from the stupidity of the black man. Look around you in naija.. your taste for foreign products..

4

If your plan is to become a billionaire by fraud , chances are you'll be caught.. Nigeria is a better place for that if that's your end goal , just steal enough to instill fear.

Bro, I can see frustration and desperation in you. I take God Beg you, Calm down. I know of a guy here who lost millions runsing Dubai visa. He also lost out in US. Finally Germany scholarship school came through and it was legitimate. He's now studying there. Please don't use desperation to land yourself in all those weird countries. I will advise you to hustle hard, make your money are move to sane country. With N1.5m you can get Canada PPR through AIPP. You don't even need an agent to do it. YOU DON'T NEED AN AGENT TO TRAVEL, YOU ONLY NEED INFORMATION.
stay away from Agents


Sorry, you said 1.5 million can get somebody Canadian PPR? what about the 3.5 million account balance that's required when going there

STFU! This is exactly what I've been saying. Nigerians are the major problems of Nigeria NOT Politicians. Imagine this dude's fvcked up mentality. angry

Just look at what this dude is complaining about bills, bills, bills and paying higher than Nigeria, blah, blah. What do you expect? Why do you guys love free stuff? If the citizens or inhabitants don't pay their fair share, how would their economy work? Your own Politicians are busy siphoning public funds meant for these social amenities while you fools keep praising and worshiping them instead of criticizing and opposing them.

You wonder why some pple's mentality or mind state can never change regardless of their environment.

You’re right bro, Nigerian love complaining a lot. When I was living in lag. We paid 450k as service charge yearly without good amenities even the pool was closed because of it bad state then and each month we pay 70k as light bill not even constant light, the environment isn’t clean just like suburbs in developed countries, even the landlord pays property tax too. I just don’t know why all the people are complaining about bills maybe they’re used of living in village. Some places in Lagos is more expensive than developed countries...

They’re not even talking about free treatment from standard hospitals, treated water, government benefits and other support from the government.

Well, my travels to abroad have never been to stay there, just mostly for vacations, so nothing much to say about that. From Vancouver to New York to London to Paris to Sydney. I love traveling. My favorite destination is Singapore though (you can spend an entire month at Changi Airport and not get bored). If not for language barriers, I'll have loved South Korea too, and maybe Japan and Scandinavia.

No matter what country I visit (even my favourite Singapore), the happiest and most joyous moment of my trip is always when I land at MMIA Lagos, and see the three words highlighted in yellow- WELCOME TO NIGERIA. My heart just swells uncontrollably with joy and tears of joy flow from my eyes.

After I finished university few years back, majority of my mates started making plans to move abroad. Some succeeded and moved, while some are still at it today. However, I decided to remain in Nigeria and contribute my quota to national development, and I have never regretted it. In fact, staying in Nigeria was the best decision I've ever made in my life. What I see of some Nigerians abroad whenever I visit, especially in the US, the Middle East and most especially Asia, is not encouraging at all.


Nigeria has been a blessing to my family and I. From the almost free university education I received (without debt on my neck like my counterparts abroad) to a very fruitful business environment. Business has been booming. If I'm to be return to this earth, I'll choose to return as a Nigerian. I will forever remain in Nigeria. I can frequently go for visits abroad, maybe for a week or two, after which I'm returning back to my wonderful country. I feel sad that my fellow Nigerian youth fail to see the numerous opportunities I'm this country. All they think about is moving abroad. Even the Lebanese, Indians and Chinese have seen that Nigeria is a goldmine and are all rushing here to snatch a share of the gold.

However, everyone has different destinies. Nigeria will favour some people, while it won't favour some. Abroad will favour some, and won't favour others too.

My advice is, if you want to live a modest life, working jobs, driving one car at most, owning one house after paying mortgage over decades, then abroad is for you (legally oo, and be ready to endure excruciating amounts of racism). But if you want to be rich, Nigeria is the place to be. My wife, kids and I have chosen the later over the former.

Nigeria is the land of opportunities.

I was at UNILAG studying computer science 200L but applied to join the British Army while in Naija. I went through the process and got a 6 months visit visa to UK.

This was back in 2009. went on to spend 5years in the Army, went to Afghanistan a couple of times.
I've left the army now and I now work as a software developer.

I came to and stayed in the UK through a tough means but God saw me through.

Good man. Which unit though? I did 5 years in 16 Med Regt. Airborne! cool

Stop deceiving yourself bro. We all know there’re opportunities to make millions in Nigeria due to it underdeveloped state but it’s never easy if you wanna start from scratch without putting your hand in shit and beside Nigerian prefer foreign used things more than new Nigerian made goods.
1: Do you know how capital extensive it’s to start a business that’ll give you 20 millions in the next three years as? Because you won’t be making profit that first and second years when start your business!! The first two years you’ll struggling to get your capital back and reinventing some parts of it again into the business. And there’s a highest chance that you’ll lose some money or sell goods on credit and creditors will won’t to pay you back to continue your business?
2: do know one bad government policy can destroy your business? Do you know how many people stop their business because of our president policies?
3: Do you know how Frustrating it’s to transport your finish goods to customers because of bad road, highways robbers, bribing of govt officials, constant light that you’ll have to depend on gen and most time during scarcity you won’t see gasoline to buy?
4: do you know how frustrating it’s when you labored your ass and pay tax (businesses pays 30 percent of their profits as tax) and one looter will just kidnap the money and keep it for his/her kids and the child will use your money to ball grin. And without tax statement you aren’t traveling out or you’re thinking of not paying tax (tax evasion) you don’t want know the punishment beside it.
5: your tax money don go one pocket, money make them supposed use do road for easier movement of your business or any other social amenities ( developed countries pays citizens, mostly children with tax money) there’ what we call tax return too
6: police problems, police will harass you, assault you, thief from you, ask you for bribes and may even kill you there because of greed because of bribe. Yesterday you saw that business woman those police assault, break her nails dragged up and down, beating, stole her sneakers and put hand in her pant just because she’s coming from work late.
7: when you reach home you’ll be fear of kidnapper, thief and other social vice. No light to sleep you on gen and your neighbors also on gen, noise. Before you reach 50 years you don die.
8: you don’t wanna know how fast business die in Nigeria. Small scale business usually take less years to die but some cases are exceptional but it can’t grow more than it’s’ just repeating same circles. The big scale take 10-15 years to die due to bad and unfavorable policies. Go ask those biscuits companies or go ask Mr BIGGI AND ask kfc how it take long it don de business
9: money to start the intent business. Who want give you loan grin grin where you wanna see 1 million to take start d business..
10: it take time to gather customers... ask coal or read about rich businessmen..

I’m still wondering which investment vacuum with no favorable policies or business environment

grin grin grin guy you’re very funny, Bob risky is your mentor.. you don’t wanna know how real his life is outside instagram and how fake her life is in instagram... Let me not say much. So you wanna use He/She to compare Kylie Jenner? She’s just 21years and she’s already a billionaire in USA in dollars$$$..

About the China and India most of those people you see in Nigeria are doing house maids. In USA Dubai and other developing countries like Malaysia mostly Indian are doing tax driver, gateman, truck driver and other foolish job but once they enter Nigeria your government go give dem one big contract just to thief or use the Indian name open business and the India China man go de head am. You don’t wanna know how police values those folks and hate their own. Those police go beat or even kill you because of India man.

One minute we are shouting Sai Baba, Sai Atiku and another minute na say Naija don spoil.

As much as I consider this as a nice topic, I would like to point out that everyone's case is peculiar.

Travel no go work for everyone. No let who travel make you feel less as a human and no let who him local hustle dey pay make you feel like travelling is bad.

Define your needs and set priorities. Let each day count for you. Don't stop looking for job in the name of planning to travel. Again if you plan to travel, don't let your small 100k job make you feel like you have arrived and forget travel.

Define what you intend to do when you travel. No go Nepal say you want study or sell drugs.....hunger go kill you.
No go Malaysia say you want be pastor or Philippines say you want work. Let your interest in life guide you. No be agent you pay visa for Australia go come tell you say make you go Fuji say you go cross Sharp Sharp and you agree. Or you pay for US and him give you Mexico.

Just pray to whatever you believe in as you plan to japa

Don't come to this topic looking for secret.....people will tell you lies and even if them tell you truth, them case no be same with you. Some wey their papa rich or dey into trading go tell you say them hustle, how e take help you wey dey village or your papa na classroom teacher for primary school.

Please stay there and be making a Mickey out of yourself thinking you're talking to some naive lost naija Diaspora.

I hate to brag but ive bagged over 35 mill within d past two years since I started paying attention to the happenings in naija.


To succeed u need three critical things

PR

Access to capital

Connections

For me , my strategy is number two.

There are Nigerians killing it right now selling things as simple as hair. You just need that lousy Nigerian pr style around Ur biz and know how to source for correct products at the right price aimed at a specific target market.

I started my abroad journey here in this forum and finally got my PR in Nov 2018.
I was working in a bank here so I was able to afford money for the entire process.

Cost me about 2m exams and all including visa fees.

I left this country with my daughter she was about 2yrs old to Australia in Dec 2018 with less that AUD3k

It was really tough in the first 3months as I didn't know anyone and had a child to care for as well.
The Nigerians I met here then were not so kind but some were.

I got a factory job after a month and was able to start paying bills plus baby daycare fees.
It was really tough for me.

After 3months I got a professional job in a company I never dreamt of.
I love my job and I'm happy.

Did it pay off? hell yeah!!

I've made all I spent long time ago.
I'm comfortable and happy and love God so much because he let me go through all I did so that I can get close to him and it worked.

Sharing to encourage you all especially women.
Don't let any make you feel that you are not enough or treat you less.
Love yourself and God will always see you through.

I have no abroad story to share. Patiently waiting for God to pick up my calls.

I do have a Nigerian story to share to those abroad though.

There is no peace. There are no jobs. There is no food. There is no electricity. There isn't potable water. There are no good roads.
Police can pick you up at anytime of the day and label you a yahoo boy, and you end up spending years in prison...that's if they dont kill you first. Everyday, the government thinks of ways to tax the citizens.
We have a President who doesn't care.
We have a helpless Vice President. Our lawmakers only care about girls with big booty.
The courts, which should be the last hope is now the worst! Massive corruption has killed the judiciary.
The youths are confused. All they do is to argue on social media.
Tribalism and nepotism are the other of the day.

And of course, we have "Village People" that will hate you for no reason.

Nigeria has messed up our minds, we now glorify suffering.

Bottom line: If you are abroad and thinking of coming back, don't bother.

I started by saving up money during my housemanship.

After NYSC,I was lucky to start residency programme. I still worked in private hospitals at my free time.
Meanwhile,I took the necessary exams..In Nigeria and UK.

Passed...Got an offer in Norwich,where I'm based now.
My hubby is making plans to join me next year.

Leaving Nigeria is the best decision I have ever taken in my life so far.




Which exam do you think is better between IELT & OET?

Interesting encounter. I am glad it ended well for you.

Well, my travels to abroad have never been to stay there, just mostly for vacations, so nothing much to say about that. From Vancouver to New York to London to Paris to Sydney. I love traveling. My favorite destination is Singapore though (you can spend an entire month at Changi Airport and not get bored). If not for language barriers, I'll have loved South Korea too, and maybe Japan and Scandinavia.

No matter what country I visit (even my favourite Singapore), the happiest and most joyous moment of my trip is always when I land at MMIA Lagos, and see the three words highlighted in yellow- WELCOME TO NIGERIA. My heart just swells uncontrollably with joy and tears of joy flow from my eyes.

After I finished university few years back, majority of my mates started making plans to move abroad. Some succeeded and moved, while some are still at it today. However, I decided to remain in Nigeria and contribute my quota to national development, and I have never regretted it. In fact, staying in Nigeria was the best decision I've ever made in my life. What I see of some Nigerians abroad whenever I visit, especially in the US, the Middle East and most especially Asia, is not encouraging at all.


Nigeria has been a blessing to my family and I. From the almost free university education I received (without debt on my neck like my counterparts abroad) to a very fruitful business environment. Business has been booming. If I'm to be return to this earth, I'll choose to return as a Nigerian. I will forever remain in Nigeria. I can frequently go for visits abroad, maybe for a week or two, after which I'm returning back to my wonderful country. I feel sad that my fellow Nigerian youth fail to see the numerous opportunities I'm this country. All they think about is moving abroad. Even the Lebanese, Indians and Chinese have seen that Nigeria is a goldmine and are all rushing here to snatch a share of the gold.

However, everyone has different destinies. Nigeria will favour some people, while it won't favour some. Abroad will favour some, and won't favour others too.

My advice is, if you want to live a modest life, working jobs, driving one car at most, owning one house after paying mortgage over decades, then abroad is for you (legally oo, and be ready to endure excruciating amounts of racism). But if you want to be rich, Nigeria is the place to be. My wife, kids and I have chosen the later over the former.

Nigeria is the land of opportunities.


Dude it's great that Nigeria favoured YOU but unfortunately and realistically, your story doesn't apply to the vast majority of Nigerians living in Nigeria. There is no true middle class in Nigeria you are either rich or 'just getting by'.

People might read your story and feel encouraged in the moment but once they put the phone down, they are slapped in the face by the harsh reality of this HELL we call Nigeria - just one encounter with Sars is enough to make one flee this misery of a country, not to talk of the numerous bottlenecks that makes this dumpsite of a country inhabitable for sane human beings.

Trust me, I used to be a strong advocate for Nigeria myself but I got my wake up call. This country is done for!

Beautyaddy:


lol!...That is what faithful paying and execution of Taxes does.


Most Nigerians don't want to PAY TAXES.

Hello,

Please get your facts right. Nigerians pay their taxes "faithfully", but our taxes are not "executed" faithfully by our leaders. Rather than look for ways to plug the corruption menace and embezzling of public funds and taxes, the government wants to increase taxes we pay. For how long will that continue? In a country where majority of the people live on 1dollar a day, lawmakers go home with over 200m a year.

The country you are in now works because the taxes people pay are well utilized. I dont mind using 70% of my salary to pay for taxes as long as the good life will be provided for me.

Get your facts right bro.

Oh and I'm tried of people shaming the modest way of life in the west. What is so bad about working a job - earning a honest living, driving a nice modern car and paying mortgage? Isn't that what normal responsible adults do? undecided

I guess one hasn't started life until you have a fleet of useless cars, numerous poorly built houses and millions of worthless nigerian naira in your account lipsrsealed

Mindsets like yours is why Nigeria will forever remain in a regressive state fuelled by an incurable systematic rot.
