You're a SLAVE in your own country. They're stealing your resources and you and daft leaders can't stop them so you can give your children a better future? Lols.


Even if I don't have the best of jobs here but more than 40% of Nigerians in your shithole don't have any job despite their qualifications. Most of them are still struggling with the basic things like food,shelter and clothes. Electricity is even a luxury. Lols


You get the best of education here, whether rich or poor. (You're given a loan to pursue your academic dreams comfortably) Does your Nigeria have any kind of loans for students? Lols


I'd live all my life here than come back and killed by your police because I have an iPhone. Lols



P.S I'll advise you to go back to secondary school cos your grammar is very wack,incoherent and you can't even spell very well. I believe you're a Nigerian graduate. Lols




Be nice please. It does not cost much to spread love.

y'all r week ass€s nigg€rrs you r all that think relocation or migration is the solution ur the dumbest of all the ass£s i know nigeria is not good its shithole there r no jobs no opportunities no anything but why do u decide to leave it instead of joining hands to make it great so that we nd our coming generation will benefit. why do u wanna be a slave in another mans land u will be racially abused there u will be look at differently they will bully u in ur work places u will become a loner there u will regret it lots are regrettn it they r just not telling u i hv a friend there hes saving to come back here


Destiny's differs exactly what people don't understand. You just don't travel out because other people are traveling out.

And for that joining of hands you said there. It cracked me up. Join fire. No one is willing even the government are not willing.

I'm young but I've sustained intelligence enough to know that no one really cares about this country.

Most people making moves to change this country are those that have been abroad then decide to return to make a change because they're now well equipped and their mindset to some extent has changed.

Love and light I pray thee.

I wish you can followed my first post, I never condemned those going there and I made my claims on the obvious note that those abroad too have their challenges then boom the guy was rushing my post


I think is not a must to go abroad, I've many people who travelled out and didn't pull through till their papers expired and they were placed in refugee camps doing hide and seek till they got deported while other left to other Africa countries because of shame


not everyone living abroad is a living a good life, some have regret to even leave naija and some are happy. life is a choice, I made my choice and that dunce was tackling me, like I should accept to do dirty jobs abroad because Buhari and Nigeria leaders ain't competent

In such case you ignore. He has made you waste some energy. You're entitled to change someone's mentality that's not willing. So just do you.. Thank you boss.

NO, there are NOT all the same. Canada's homicide rate (from guns) is more than 7 times lower than USA's. Nigeria has always banned private ownership of guns, yet our homicide rate (from guns) is more than the U.S.A (thanks to kidnappings, banditry, armed robbery and terrorism).

int0x80:
They are all the same, Canada just has a stricter gun control than US. There are still shootings in Canada, but not as much as in US.
Re: "Relocating To Canada Is A Huge Achievement" - Nigerians by 79733139(m): 1:25pm On Jan 05
Those kinds of people are whom Canada can grudgingly accept... why? Because they are rich! The wives and kids would NOT end up doing prostitution, scam or prostitution to survive... why? Again because they are rich, their rich family members would likely keep sending money to them for upkeep.

A poor person wouldn't get any financial assistance from back home, so he/she is likely to engage in crime.

Now, can you see why Canada hand-picks whom they allow into their country?

britiko:


You will be amazed that the so called rich or elites also come to Canada to declare refugee.
They send their wives and kids on vacation and gbam next thing they are declaring assylum with the help of Nigerian lawyers based in Canada . These useless lawyers fabricates and teaches them what lies to tell the immigration judge.

we have the same reasoning. If I had the power, I would have invited white Europeans and Americans to come back to Nigeria and take some LGAs in all Nigerian states as their permanent ancestral home forever and also give them some government slots like all heads of security, judiciary, CBN, ministry of science and technology, sports, etc

Only white? What about the black? You are discriminating against your own race. It is only in Africa that we see this type of mindset.

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.



I didn't have any reason to doubt your story until I reach the bolded.
Did they seriously tell him his race was one of the factors upon which the decision was based not to hire him ?

I'm telling you sincerely. They did. He couldn't his have been lying too cos he's told us the story several times especially whenever he wanted to motivate us. I worked briefly with him before I went for my nysc cos NYSC had a little delay in mobilising us then. In order not to stay home doing nothing, I had to join him. As a successful man, who had nothing to lose or gain by telling is the story, I believed him 100%

Cool
some Americans can be blunt a times , especially when they see an African man wanting to take their ideas or technology outside of USA. Their mentality is changing now especially since Obama became US president. Many of them didn't believe we too were innovative. My brother is a medical technologist. He wrote to a major medical device manufacturer in US for partnership in Nigeria. They didn't reply him at first. He called them, they promised responding but never did. He had to go there in person. He met their sales director who confirmed they actually received his mails but for some reason, they didn't feel it was necessary because they weren't ready to have a distributor in Nigeria as of that time. I don't know why they're like that. Reluctantly, they considered him but with price list higher than what they gave to their people grin. Some Japanese companies behave this way too

He was to sell an AED to a leading oil company here when he got to know of this. After giving them his own quote the company being an American firm reached the USA manufacturer directly, just to confirm my brother was their agent in Nigeria as he claimed, without him knowing. They also forwarded the price he gave them in USD. They reached my brother and gave him like 25% discount more, across board. At times, it's difficult to penetrate them but when you eventually do, na Partnership for life because they'd pamper you with lots of benefits including training.

Nigerians! The cheap subsidized (sometimes free) education medical doctors get in Nigeria leave their US and UK (not sure about Canadian) counterparts with six figures in loan debt (in the US, an average of $250K for a medical education).

Anyway, Nigerians have a funny notion of the concept of citizenship. They think it’s only limited to rights and privileges, but ignore the rights and responsibilities part of the social contract (which, like all contracts, is predication on consideration).

Canada was built by Canadians, and the present condition (and the ultimate future) of Nigeria will be a culmination of the collective actions of ALL Nigerians (either by commission or omission). “Nigeria” is not a stand-alone entity, it is Nigerians!

Can you light my candle?
I need a job, anything. I'm ready to relocate.
I'm a graduate school teacher.

In a way you contradicted yourself here. The 2 striking examples you gave, your Uncle and the ocean transport guy, had to go abroad FIRST in order to see opportunities to bring back home to make money. A strong argument can be made for the fact that they may have been far worse off if they hadn't travelled. Are you actually discouraging young Nigerians from hustling to go abroad so that they can reorientate/educate/enlighten themselves and spot lucrative opportunities to bring back and be successful like your uncle? Even if they don't end up bringing back any business idea at least they will be self sufficient and no burden to family members. At least when time for family contribution reach, and with enough notice given, they will be able to meet up. Do you (and most Nigerians) realise that not everyone is cut out to be an entrepreneur, or a successful one for that matter? Imagine how chaotic and do or die it will be if we were all hustling businessesmen? Some peoples gift is to sit down in a laboratory researching and inveting things. Some people nature is to work with and manipulate figures. Others is to work with nature. Abroad they can grow reasonably wealthy with peace of mind without hustling or stealing when they excel in their fields. People like that will be poor and miserable in Nigeria unless they go against their nature to start hustling (or embezzling in some cases) which often ends disastrously. This is where the Nigeria falls short because it is not able to adequately take care of its citizens unless you are a die hard or hustler or very well connected. Also do you realise that there are a hell lot of clean hardworking Nigerians abroad who are worth a few millions £ $? Yes private jet will be nice but they are ok that they are able to afford all that they need, have very decent savings and also able to invest in small projects or business in Nigeria. Not everyone is interested in making obscene money. Finally in 2018, migrant remittances to Nigeria equaled US$25 billion, representing 6.1% of GDP. That's a hell lot of very vital support they are giving to Nigeria.

Not Nigeria alone. The black race cant coordinate it self into development.

It is like a genetical something or a curse. I don't know. But blacks only do well in systems they don't fully control.

If u leave ur system for them to control fully, they will mess it up.
An example is UGANDA under Yoweri Museveni & Guinea under Theodore Obiang. They've been ruling since the 80s and nothing is happening in the countries.

Roughly 100,000 Nigerians in Canada, we need to target a million in the next ten years. It is a huge achievement for Nigeria as a country , when Nigerians leave for Canada. Diasporas are contributing to Nigerian economy invariably via foreign remittance. It is all hype to overrate the number of Nigerians who have left in 5 years, Nigeria has a population of 200 million and produces graduates enmasse. Anytime a professional leaves for Canada, (s)he has indirectly provided a job for a jobless graduate.

They have flushed out many of them. And the new ones that might want to spring up will be dealt with by law enforcement agencies. Canada isn't Malaysia or Indonesia, cultists and Yahoo boys wouldn't last too long there before the get jailed or deported. Their law enforcement is just as good as that of USA and UK.

Pls for the sake of clarity, not everybody travels for the sake of making millions.

Are you safe in this country as a person?

If you end up making all the millions in Nigeria, can you move about without escorts?

People just want peaceful society devoid of insecurities. Life is not valued here in Nigeria. That alone is enough for one to make a move.
