Now I applied with our rival company some few weeks ago for a role in lagos did two interviews with them few weeks back. .did not hear from them until this afternoon they called to let me know if I would like to work in taraba state. .we agreed on 300k. .the H.R has sent me a mail indicating all I should send to them to help me prepare my offer letter.
Now comes the issue my parents and siblings are not in support of it.. because they feel it's far and the level of insecurity which I understand. .but deep down I want to go there. .I see it as a new challenge and new life.,all my life has been in lagos except my university life but I served in lagos also. .
My friends tell me to go ..but my parents says no..
Giving me plenty reasons ..
Am just confused now..
I need advice. .

It's high time you grow up and make a decision as a man that you are. Were you expecting your parents to support you?

Taraba that is even peaceful when compared to other northern states? Wake up bro. There are things you don't seek permission for but rather inform the later.

Be a man. If your write up was about the job security I would have listened.

GO, with the nature of your job, you are not likely to experience the fighting side. I served in taraba in 90s and back then heavy fighting was going on between Tiv and Fulani, Jukun and mumuye or other tribe. the difference now is frequency of circulation of information.

the role am going to be occupying there is a more senior level grade. . Though it would come with new challenges. .because the company is a well known brand in automobile.. so I feel it wants to expand more in the north. So it's a new challenge for me

Go. Being in Taraba will also give you more allowance to save. Invest that savings and you have another stream of money

More reason you should take the offer. You can make your findings about the job security there. That's key.

Bro,
I would advise you that you should take a shot at the Taraba job.
1. Compared to other states in that axis, it is relatively safer and cheaper
2. 94% inhabitants there understand and can speak English
3. If you move there, the company might fix u up in GRA which is relatively safer to other parts of the town
4. Instead of junketting via road, you will be flying
5. The State is closer to Cross-River State
6. If you no wan go, there are guys wey Don ready to roll with the job - even would perform better than you

With 2months in Taraba.. You will earn close to your current annual earnings in Lagos. You could take a "medical" leave or tell your current officials where you work... That you needed to go sort something... Find someone to fill in for you..for two months. Before your first month ends ... you'll enough whether or not continue working in taraba...or to return to Lagos
Re: Is It Worth It.. (job In Lagos For A Job In Taraba State) by myke92(m): 11:51pm On Aug 22, 2020
Bro.. Think about it, the main reason you are skeptical is just "fear of the unknown"

Leave your comfort zone and take on a new challenge, you will still move from that Taraba to something bigger & better, so stop sounding like it's your last bus stop.

So, Man up and move! smiley
