Insomnia Thoughts - Should I Relocate Or Not? by Ekpeitut: 12:52am On Jan 04, 2020
Hello my people,

I've had this strong desire to relocate out of naija given the harsh economic climate, the hopelessness, insecurity and other ills. (Note: I live comfortably and earn decent wage, had part of my education outside Nigeria, my job also allows me travel outside every once in a while)

I had started the relocation process but I keep stalling because of the following questions/ thoughts that keeps popping up in my mind;

1. If all the sane Nigerians flee Nigeria who then remains to fight for the soul of Nigeria (Some may say Nigeria isn't worth fighting for) sadly I agree but it's all we've got.

2. The country I intend relocating to have had their fair share challenges but somehow rose above them to create the utopia that now appeals to me. So what's stopping me from doing same in my Country ? ( One tree can't make a forest - that's my answer)

I just want to sample opinions. Please keep them coming.

If you have the chance to relocate to a better and sane country do it, you can visit as often.
There are too many negatives in Nigeria beginning with insecurity.

Nigeria needs a vision to believe in. The country is a collection of sections with different ideals of what progress means. Without unity of purpose, the country will remain backward. As you can see from the last set of elections, things cannot change because the side with more violence will always win.

If you have a family, better go raise them in a sane country where meritocracy and competence comes before ethnicity, quota and religion. They will see doctors who didn’t “sort” to make it out of medical school and will not need to answer yes sir to one illiterate whose only qualification is being born in the same town as one military administrator.

You can stay abroad and contribute your best in cash and kind.

Be open to starting afresh and conquer any austere condition as you may not be able to live large for some time.

Finally:
If you voted for or supported Buhari at any point, may your efforts yield no result. You better stay here and enjoy your change.

Thanks for your contribution.
And HELL NO I didn't vote BUHARI. I never believed in the dude for one second. I was born right about when he was military head of state and according to my parents everything happening now is like deja vu of his military regime.

Those are your choices to make or you've already concluded, subconsciously before asking but I have something to ask, what are you going to contribute to this country you are relocating to? It's nerve wrecking that so many Nigerians just move away and all they want to do is "enjoy" the good life prepared by others.
No matter where you find yourself, add something, don't just be a doctor or a nurse that engages her job diligently and get paid for it, that was expected of you because it's what you are being paid to do, but do MORE!

Anyway, if things don't pan out as you envisaged, ALWAYS REMEMBER THE ROAD THAT WILL LEAD YOU HOME

Warning: Stay away from WAKANOW, they are selective scammers

You are right. I have asked myself this question times without number but the truth is Nigeria is not ready yet. The country is not encouraging and that is the major reason why most Nigerians prefer to relocate to another country.

What would drive a person so desperate to vacate where his roots lie in search of an experience elsewhere in the world undecided

Understandably, the motives of lots of nigerians putting in immigration applications are diverse but the underlying factor is d stark disappointment in our system and a search for a plausible hope. Hope for good health care, good schools, adequate security, constant electricity, good roads and hope for our unborn children.

GOD has blessed this nation with all the good natural resources of life that could make us compete with the great nations of the world yet we have chosen to move backward and not stagnant nor forward. Our leaders are so corrupt, judicial system is corrupt. Almost everybody is corrupt. I have always tried my best to correct people when they go wrong, enlighten them but they are far from changing their ways.

Nigeria is a country where the rich and elite are above the law. A country where a man can loot over 30billion naira and he will be sentenced to 1yr in prison with an option of paying a fine #5,000,000 while a armed robber that steal #200,000 and be sentence to 20yrs in prison. INJUSTICE!!!!!

That being said, I believe Nigeria would be great one day but not with this present generation cool

God bless Nigeria

Loss of patriotism
Bad leaders rulers
Unproductive youths


The only set of people that can make Nigeria a better place are our leaders rulers in Government. If they are ready, every other person will be ready.
When you say, "dont misuse or embezzle any public fund in your care" and someone goes contrary to the directive and gets heavily punished, no one else would commit such offense i believe but unfortunately in Nigeria, Offenders don't get punished. So nobody cares when any goes wrong cry

This is the reason for the loss of patriotism in the minds of Nigerians.

The country you are planning to relocate to have productive citizens, good leaders and a working system but these don't exist in Nigeria.

We have youths who can do anything to see a celebrity but can't do the same if we are asked to fight for our country.

We have people who are tribal bigots and are not ready to change for good. A country where tribalism thrives cannot develop. We need to be united before the country can move forward. Nigerians like to identify themselves with their tribes. If a Nigerian is prosecuted, the first thing an average Nigerian would check is the criminal full name to know if the person is yoruba, hausa or Igbo. This is completely absurd

No matter our tribe, we are all Nigerian and we should learn to embrace ourselves and work together.

Like Naijafutbol said, you can contribute your quota in cash or kind while in abroad

Kalu is just unfortunate. He is neither the first elite to embezzle public fund nor will he be the last.

Abia seems to have failure mentality now engraved into the fabric. The two past governors robbed the state to stupor. The current government is slightly better but by my assessment, still in the failure category.

India has more than 18 million of its citizens in diaspora, to be specific 4.4m in US, more than 3m in UAE, same goes to other developed countries as well. Even the UK has more than 5m of its citizens living abroad as migrants.

Emigrate while you can, the country will be fixed when the people truly needs change.

Don't let patriotism blind you from seeing reality. Grab this opportunity while you can else you will regret your folly.

At first I thought you were serious, I later realized the sarcasm.

Truth is, hard work and prayer work hand in hand. Anything other than that is pure self-deceit.
