If you have the opportunity, I sincerely believe you will be better of here in Canada . Am not exaggerating, on my off days outside regular job, I do food delivery and I bet you can make that 1 month salary you make in Nigeria in 10 hours.

The career dilemma...

Many years ago I was where you are now.

I took the road less traveled. I settled for a career in Nigeria.

I got a job in a Big 4. Then moved on to an FMCG, where the perks are much higher!

On education, I got chartered, and I'm finishing n MBA.

On family, I got married to my best friend from University, and I just made my first baby.

Do I regret not moving to the US to join my mom, a US citizen?

I do. Every. Single. Minute.

Why? Nigeria is a very uncertain place to stay and thrive. You could be up there in the sky today and the next week you're back on the mud. In a country of many poor people, you run the risk of becoming a victim of crime due to envy...post COVID-19 it'll get worse.

Look at you at 30. You're dithering. You're pussyfooting.

Look at me at 28. I still regret the mistake my 25 year old self made. I'm pushing daily to leave Nigeria.

I want to leave not because I'm broke in Nigeria, but the collective poverty in this country scares me...

Most crimes committed today are more out of envy and hunger than of greed.

If you can, please run. For your SAFETY!

Very objective comment, I love your kind, you will go far in life, keep pushing.

God why you con bless people wey no get sense like this.....OP so sorry for the insult.... sometimes I wonder how people like you view Nigeria...I don't think you need any advice before you do what your siblings are asking you to do.... whatever Nigeria is giving you in 15years...you can make it over there in 2-5year if you are hard-working.... remember you are relocating to a sane environment... think about that....

“COVID-19 HAS BECOME A FULL-SCALE BUSINESS IN NIGERIA”
–BEN AYADE

During an interview on Channels TV earlier this morning, the Governor of Cross-Rivers State, Prof. Benedict Ayade mentions that COVID-19 has become a full-scale business for some set of people serving as a medium to exploit Nigerians. He says “You do not have to be a scientist to see the loopholes and business elements. Why can’t Nigeria produce her test kits? Why can’t we have our own vaccination plants to produce Vaccines? Nigerians are endowed, very intelligent people by nature.”

He referenced one of his friends to buttress his motion that COVID-19 has become a full-scale business in the country. He says “my Chinese friend who lives in Switzerland told him that he has made quite a fortune, importing reagents out of the Philippines.”

Governor Ayade also reveals the reason why he has not been testing random people on the basis of having contact with infected person(s) in his state- Cross-Rivers. He says that the tests conducted in Nigeria to diagnose Coronavirus lack reproducibility and reliability. Thus, he only tests people with symptoms of the virus.

Additionally, he says Malaria and Coronavirus share so much in common. Thus, for us in Malaria endemic world, we are naturally immune to the Coronavirus. He says that it is even the case that when you sneeze in our country, the virus escapes and falls into hell because it can’t stand an atmospheric temperature of 32 and we sometimes have 42 hot temperature in Nigeria. So, what are we talking about? We are really being exploited and we must shut our doors.

Governor Ben Ayade who has a PhD in Environmental Microbiology also claims that he is learned, smart, and exposed, thus, he dare not follow blindly, he will lead from the front.

Lastly, he says “I can tell you that testing for Coronavirus has gone Ecopolitical”, he asserts. He says that it is more reagents, more money for some people but as for him, it is about Science and Reality and when someone has a wrong mentality definitely he will have a wrong reality.

TallNigerian:
Hello Nairalanders,

I will be 30 years in a few months and I have never felt so much unease as I do right now. I work with one of the federal parastatals and I am currently on level 10 going to 12 next year. I have a Master degree athough it is not exactly relevant to my current job.

The problem is that my organisation uses the Ministry salary structure and my monthly net is below 80k even as a level 10 staff.

I am not married and I am academically inclined. Asides having a Master degree, I have over 8 professional certifications.

I have been trying to clinch a transfer of service to a better parastatal where the remuneration is better and where my knowledge/experiences as a science graduate will be better appreciated but it has been a bit difficult.

However, just before the COVID-19 episode in Nigeria, I got the right link for a transfer of service to a better parastatal but the process got stalled with the COVID-19 palaver.

I have 4 siblings who are Canadian citizens and they have been on my neck to migrate. I never took the calls seriously until this lockdown period. My siblings are arguing about the uncertainty of the Nigerian economy post-covid and advising me to seize this opportunity to migrate and start a new career over there?

My question therefore, "is it wise to stay back since I have gone quite far in my public service career and just wait for the opportunity to transfer my service to a better paying federal parastatal OR do I migrate to Canada and start a new career?

Your honest inputs will be highly appreciated. Thanks!

@CrazyMan @1forall Please I need your help in pushing this forward for a wider view. Thank you.

What are your skiils?
are they transferrable to Canada?
Where in Canada are your siblings?
Are they married? whats their situation?
How much money do you have?

If you can answer all these then it will determine your Canadian experience
