Come back 15 years later and share your Canada experience with us young man cheesy. But when you come back, hope you'd not hide when you see your friends and mates you left behind Progress grin.

Nigeria is a land of opportunities to only those who have the inner eyes to see one. Nothing can ever make me take such a decision of relocating. If you want to go, bye-bye but you'd spot the difference in later years if you choose to remain there . Why not apply same spirit on developing yourself here? Go there for studies and come back with opportunities. I'd like to cite a few examples below on some of us who came back, against all odds.

1- I've been around the globe, even acquired certificates, up to 4 different ones and some training skills in amazing facilities. I came back with an opportunity which is seriously proferring solutions to our problems in Nigeria today. No manager in the leading oil and gas company in Nigeria can match my worth...no be bragging matter. I don hobnob with world leaders, including Barack Obama. I'd have regretted it, had I stayed back.

2-Anyone who goes to one of the old generation banks would see an inverter with battery banks on one side of their banking hall, powering their atms... its as a result of an innovation brought home by my uncle. He left union bank for Atlanta in the 90s, got employed at Walmart as stores officer. One day, as he was going home branched at a newspaper vendor( a mexican) booth to read papers as usual and there he spotted an Inverter company located in Arlington. I'm mentioning it as it is so people could check it out. Its called Trace Engineering, later changed their name to Xantrex. He applied to them to be their rep in Nigeria to solve the epileptic power supply in critical sectors but they refused his application for 3 reasons. One, that the product was new to Africa and 2ndly, that being black, it would be impossible to convince his people on adopting the technology. 3rdly, that they weren't ready to expand beyond the shores of America as at that time. He felt disappointed. 2 months later, they called and told him they had reconsidered his application and invited him for 2 weeks training after which he was asked to come to Nigeria with demos to show to his prospects.

Long story cut short, his friends of Nigerian decent blasted him, they said his village people had come calling. He summoned courage and left America with almost nothing. On getting home, he started from his 1-room apartment he left behind. He went to companies, the CBN and other places in government too. CBN told him they had constant power supply with 3 standby automatic switch generators so, they'd not need his ideas. He told them but its free, they now allowed him to install one demo unit at their IT dept. 6 months later they had issues with their generators as there was a major power outage from national grid so they over fired the generators. They all packed up within same time. They had to order parts from abroad but then they needed to keep their IT dept running to prevent loss of files. The moment the 3rd gen stopped , all the directors were panicking, rushed to the IT room only to find out that the staff were working as normal with lights on. They called my uncle over, first thanked him for saving them a major disaster and gave him a contract to install the inverter on all the CBN branches nationwide. Shortly after that, the atm revolution came and CBN recommended this man to all banks starting from the old generation banks...this man won a global distributor of the year 4 times and was invited with family to the USA for an award each time. His colleagues back then can't even near him in anything. Rather he gives them money on each visit. If you want to go...go for schooling or you spend a little time there and while you're there, study the environment, study our challenges back home and you'd not regret leaving for home ultimately.

A friend is talking with sanwoolu on ocean transport from ikorodu to lagos Island now and discussion is at an advanced stage . He's worked with a similar company abroad for some years and now, he wants to tap into the opportunity and the company is ready to fund this project 100%. When you see his private jet or copter hovering ahead of you tomorrow, or you see him on forbes list, don't say money why...while struggling in the biting cold over there to make ends meat with all the responsibilities staring you in the face.

Kenny and D1 would have stayed put and remained stagnated. See the duos balling today. Their contribution to the entertainment industry is invaluable. These are the people we know. There are several other successful guys out there who took a similar decision.

My 50cents had been given...

Nigeria is a war zone.... If you see people post "up and grateful" everyday of their lives on social media...You'd wonder why they have to be that happy to be alive.
Some of you don't know that what you have is what you wish for while you were joking on a serious matters. The power of life and death lies in the tongue. Be mindful of what you wish for even when joking

To all the Naija-based hustlers that made it while in Naija ... Double twale to all of us! We too much. Despite the hard, harsh economic environment, we still dey ball!

My padi once told me that this abroad-travelling thing na for those wey no dey strong and smart enough to make am for Naija. I agree with am small sha but not fully. Some people just want a society that works and "abroad" will give you that, no doubt.

But for me, I can never trade my stay in Naija for any damn thing!

On a visit, few years back, I spent two weeks in the posh, serene, organized streets of Baltimore, MD, U.S.A and I was fuckin' itching to return to my hectic, stress-filled Lagos. I just couldn't fathom why. May be 'cos I was missing ẹwa agoyin, cat fish, Nkwobi and cold Guiness big stout.

All you wishes to relocate will
come to pass

But I will like to share you a secret no one will tell you, until you arrive in a first world country...



T”I just graduated college with $100,000+ in debt”! People clap,
celebrate, and even hug you.

”I just got married and spent $30,000+ for one day”! People
clap, celebrate, and even hug you.

“I just got a loan for $400,000 to buy my first home”! People
clap, celebrate, and even hug you.

“I just got a loan for $40,000+ for a new car”! People clap,
celebrate, and even hug you.

That’s $570,000+ in total DEBT that most people are drowning
in but they are feeling GOOD about it because they are
being CELEBRATED for it!!!


Goodluck


Okay you wanted to be in Nigeria where you fraudulently collect bank loans and default then use politicians to intimidate the bank ?

You bought a home and paid off your mortgage, you graduated college and have a job

You lied about wedding costs $30k for a wedding is a big lie

I don't know what your aim is for exaggerating these but I wonder what you sort of people gain from telling lies to your fellow citizens

Are you trying to scare them from traveling abroad ?

Where you deported for immigration fraud ?

Have you ever truly left Nigeria before?

In as much as I pray Nigeria gets better I always tell anyone if you have the means to relocate pls do so immediately.

Don't let optimism make you delusional. I have lived and worked abroad and still intend to return there because nothing compares to it

Moving from a failed third world country where nothing works to a country where everything works is the greatest achievement they can attain in their life.

Life starts the day you arrive in Canada, you realise you have been wasting away all the years you spent in Nigeria.
