Moving to the UK didn’t really know what to expect, I just had dreams and desire to change my life fortune. So when I landed at Heathrow I got my first scare when immigration told me to step aside after asking me why am I in the UK and who am I coming to see. Told them I’m not coming to see anyone but moving permanently to live with my wife (now ex) and they requested for her number and I gave. Then asked me where she is I told them she’s waiting for me at the arrival lounge. They delayed me for about 30mins but throughout the entire time I acted unworried coz I knew cameras were on me to observe my countenance.

Was just playing music with my Beats headsets and nodding my head to the rhythms, but I was worried inside me. I travelled with a residence permit and had all the confidence in-between the worries. So they later let me go and on getting at the arrival lounge saw madam and my brothers waiting for me, immediately I stepped out at Heathrow cold almost blew me off coz it was December period.

I was excited but the airport experience almost destabilised me. Sha thank God, my fortune has indeed changed forever. Now a naturalised citizen with a decent job and with an even promising future. No regrets whatsoever. The environment was a sight to behold. Nigeria would have killed my dreams.

For me travelling out had an unusual impact , it has created a burning desire in me for Nigeria to be fixed.


The novelty of living abroad has worn off and I'm not so impressed like one of these new comers, my desire is to see a developed Nigeria.
.

I see oyinbos and think if they can do it so can we .... Why ? to bring back glory to the black race and be respected as a group.

I didn't want to comment but it seems some y'all experience did not match mine! Well ,we are different;my first experience outside the shores of this country was some years ago,I had so many rollercoaster experience,

Is it about me asking for extra drink cos I was scared?

What about of the fear of possible crash when the hostesses we're telling us about emergency exit, safety stuffs etc. I was thinking am I going to die?
Is it about me getting drunk that I could barely when I got to Heathrow?

That thing made me depressed. Nigeria is not backward — we are the word before backward. What is it? Ape-ward. Other African countries may be backward, but we're not qualified to be backward — that is way too advanced for us; we are an ape-ward nation

Looool

I swear I feel you. Ape ward nation gave me such a big laugh. Dark stone ages App-ward nation.

The country has changed from the one I grew to love, such a shame...

The thing that makes me depressed is that citizens make a country and not vice versa...
Accordingly, if Nigeria is an "ape-ward" nation, it is because Nigerians themselves are "ape-ward"!

I can't remember that. But I remember how it felt coming back after 3years, I was overwhelmed when I came out of mma in lagos, the number of blacks, everyone was black and that was what I had not seen in a long time. I felt at home. What I wasn't ready for was the cars, every car had a dent or damage. In the abroad it's hard to come by a car with a scratch.

brother I used to be like you but see eh, the black race as a whole have a fundamental problem from creation of mankind; they are naturally unorganised, lack love, are born with innate envy, unbridled selfishness, wickedness and common love for personal success and hatred for communal progress.

A typical black person want to be the only one succeeding while others worship and beg him for alms.

A typical black man is completely fulfilled if he or she is successful, his immediate family are okay, and the rest of the world around him are suffering and begging, that's how a typical black is wired.

The natural envy of the black people will push them to sabotage your effort and in fact kill you if you resist. Their joy is seeing their whole community in darkness while their home is lite with shinning star lights.


Their is no communal love among blacks. EVERYBODY is selfish and self centered.

The only way Nigeria and West Africa can become a bit developed and organised is for white people to return and take over key leadership and security positions and also run the judiciary to ensure foolish blacks are dealt with and forced to develop sense like other races.

every passing day, every ticking seconds, Nigeria is being turned to ruins by a class of foolish, heartless, diabolocal and nonchalant set of people called political office holders and the worst part of it is that they are being worshipped and adored and cheered on by a group of more foolish, oppressed, dejected group called Nigerian youths.


Come 2023, Nigerian youths will help install another failure, nodowell, corrupt, tribalistic, nonchalant, inconsiderate, unrepentant failure like Buhari as next President and ask them their reason for supporting such a failure again He is from their tribe. He is from their religious group. Yet after 6 months of committing such grievous crime of helping to install a thief, a failure, they will come back online to beg for job, beg for money, beg for visa, beg for business idea and never accept their stupidity.


Nigeria deserve to be wiped off from the face of earth to make the world a safer place for other reasonable nations because the continuous existence of Nigeria is a threat to global peace, threat to global sanity, threat to other developed nations because as they watch idly and allow Nigeria to continue to exist and turn into ruins everyday, Nigeria will be the birthplace of all manner of human societal vices like fraud, scam, terrorism, human cannibalism, ritual killings, disease outbreaks, sophisticated robbers and thieves, just name it.


I pity white people for watching idly as Nigeria turns to total ruins because whether they like it or not, Nigeria will be a global problem with time, you can bookmark this page.


Nigerian youths need to join efforts and match to Aso Rock and all Nigerian state capitals and bring out the President, governors, etc and burn them to ashes as warning to other Nigerians that enough is enough, if not, Nigeria will become a dump site where all evils of the world is manufactured

Sincerely, people need to actually travel (If opportuned) to know that the citizens are being robbed high in Naija by these politicians.

You go notice the difference when you arrive enter the airport (MM1). You go just shake head.

Most people commenting here have not been to abroad by their comments. You must be tensed in your first move. Entering the plane and imagining where you’re going and what will happen to you. The plane take off. Balancing and landing is a not too good experience though. Some puke. Some cry and some pretend as if they’ve been flying. Trust naija. I was scared in my first travel to Jamaica. Then to the states. Luxembourg and France. They have a different system of doing things. U mess up you collect. Naija is the freeest country on earth. I swear.
your experience is different because:

1.) Maybe your flight outside Nigeria was your first flight experience, if it was, sure you will be scared of the plane crashing when the air hostess starts to give safety tips, showing you exit doors and how to exit in case of emergency and all that, my first flight experience I almost cried cos I felt the air hostess have noticed that the plane was going to crash as I fixed my eyes on the window staring at the wings of the jet and hoping to see it crash lol, I remembered my mother and how she was going to cry and miss me,tears was rolling down my cheeks unknowingly, the pains of death, pity people that died in a plane crash, they died before the crash cry

Also when we experienced mild turbulence and the flight descended sharply, I just smiled a wicked smile that so this is how I finally joined the under world as my heart sunk with fear cheesy


2.) You will feel tensed if you are traveling without genuine reason or complete papers or just traveling vaguely to go hustle without direction, you will be scared and calm, wondering what the future holds for you ahead

3.) The last part of your comment showed you were a big time law breaker in Nigeria before you left lol, so you will feel uneasy in organised country grin
