The high successes recorded by dubious politicians, fraudulent pastors and ponzi scheme operators in Nigeria are living proofs that Nigerians can be so gullible. We can easily be deceived. The astronomical hype on Canada is the latest deceit in town. Here are things you need to know before immigrating.

1. The list of richest Nigerians is filled with Nigerians living at home. You're more likely to make it into Forbes if you live in Nigeria. At least that's what the stat shows, whether people making into Forbes in Nigeria are engaging in corrupt practices is a story for another day. The odds of becoming a dollar billionaire favours those at home . No Diaspora Nigerian has ever made it into Forbes billionaire list.

2. There are more money to be made in a developing economy than in a developed economy. That's why as you're rushing out of the country, Lebanese, Indians and Chinese are rushing in. Only few will understand. You're sitting on the biggest market in Africa yet you haven't realize this but the Lebanese and the Indians knew this.

3. If you are the type who don't fancy working for others, it's much more easier to own a business in Nigeria than in Canada/US. Western countries were set up for the 99% populace to work for 1% elites. Their education systems were designed to produce workforce for the rat race. Not to create employers of labour.

4. It's stupidity to resign from a high-paying job in Nigeria in a bid to relocate to Canada/US. Your eyes will get clear up when you start facing the hard realities in Canada. Those who had made this mistake in the past are ashamed to come on social media to talk about it. The ones talking on Twitter are 'freshers' who just arrived.

5. If you want to secure 2nd passport for your kids, you don't necessarily need to immigrate to achieve this. There are other ways, one method is overseas child birth.

6. You're 5x more likely to be shot and rubbed in New York than in Lagos. Poor neighborhoods all over the world has more crime rates. The thing is, when you finally made it in Nigeria,you can move to high brow areas with lesser crime.

7. Nigerians are spending up to 8millions ($21k) and above to immigrate to Canada/US whereas an average canadian or American citizen can't boast of $10k in their bank A/C's. They live pay check to pay check.

8. Some Nigerians claims that they ain't relocating because of the money but because of good infrastructure, good health care system, value for their money etc. That's a lie! 98% of Nigerians who're eager to travel out are relocating because of economic reasons. There are good infrastructure, good health care system and value for money in countries like Kuwait, Russia, Brazil, South Korea, Chile etc but Nigerians ain't trooping there, indicating that their preference for Canada/US is purely based on economic reasons.

9. It's cheaper to live in Nigeria. Canada/US promises higher minimum wage but the system will still take it away from you. It's like giving you with one hand and taking from you with another. $2k (N760k) will pay for your one year rent of 2 bedrooms apartment in a good location in Nigeria but same amount will only fetch you one month rent of a match box apartment in Canada/US.

10. This is not to stop you from traveling out but to inform you on the true realities. Economic immigration should be left for lower or working class who're struggling or to young lads who wants to school abroad and thereafter further their career overseas. Not to deceive Nigerians already earning good in corporate offices in Nigeria to resign and relocate where they will be employed as security guards or to deceive business owners who's businesses are thriving in Nigeria to close down business and relocate. Don't let them deceive you with the hype. Money don't grow on trees anywhere in the world.
So you SAT down and wrote all these without considering Noise & Generator Noise/Smoke in Naija.
Please where do you reside..?
Did you ever consider the NOISE in Naija.
Did you know that the GENERATOR NOISE & CHURCHES/MOSQUE Loud speakers in Naija are enough to stimulate relocation..?

$2k = (N760k)
Compare Canadian dollar $2 to Nigeria 2k and the other way round

A Canadian can rent a room with $500 dollar while a Nigerian can't not even rent a room with 1000 naira

Food for thought...Nice one OP. You might just be saving lots of potential billionaires here from becoming a wretch in life, all in the name of relocation. When you land in Canada or yankee, everything you see would tell you, come, come ,come but don't get distracted...those edifices and other infrastructure you see were put in place as a result of somebody's efforts from various countries across the globe. Several Nigerians have high rising buildings all over Canada and USA. They acquired their wealth here in Nigeria and some of them that I know didn't steal from politics. They're entrepreneurs with strong global connections. If anyone sees my small home in Toledo, close to Martin Luther King Centre, maybe they'd also think it's owned by an American, lol. This isn't about flexing of muscles and many of us here decided to remain low key...and anonymous shall we remain here as always. There are big boys here on NL who schooled over there but came back home at least, I know one who's a close friend.

If you're in doubt of what might become of you later, should you choose to stay put, ask those who have been there for 15 years or more and you'd find out that the story is different. How you spent money before you had responsibilities over there would be different from the way you do, when you were still single and without responsibilities. One of my friends in his early 40s just got married in 2019 after much persuasion. He was never interested. I asked if the problem was spiritual but he said he was OK, just some few things needed to be sorted out and he's been there for nearly 15 years.

If you must travel, go look for opportunities which aren't available here and bring them home within a short time. You might be on forbes' list someday if you don't relent, who knows? I had cited examples of some people who schooled in USA but came back home with opportunities, including my humble self. One of them travelled on a B1/B2 visa, even worked at Walmart as a store officer. His plan was to just stay a while and return with opportunities.

The below is the link for anyone to read...on second page of the thread.

The high successes recorded by dubious politicians, fraudulent pastors and ponzi scheme operators in Nigeria are living proofs that Nigerians can be so gullible. We can easily be deceived. The astronomical hype on Canada is the latest deceit in town. Here are things you need to know before immigrating.

1. The list of richest Nigerians is filled with Nigerians living at home. You're more likely to make it into Forbes if you live in Nigeria. At least that's what the stat shows, whether people making into Forbes in Nigeria are engaging in corrupt practices is a story for another day. The odds of becoming a dollar billionaire favours those at home . No Diaspora Nigerian has ever made it into Forbes billionaire list.

2. There are more money to be made in a developing economy than in a developed economy. That's why as you're rushing out of the country, Lebanese, Indians and Chinese are rushing in. Only few will understand. You're sitting on the biggest market in Africa yet you haven't realize this but the Lebanese and the Indians knew this.

3. If you are the type who don't fancy working for others, it's much more easier to own a business in Nigeria than in Canada/US. Western countries were set up for the 99% populace to work for 1% elites. Their education systems were designed to produce workforce for the rat race. Not to create employers of labour.

4. It's stupidity to resign from a high-paying job in Nigeria in a bid to relocate to Canada/US. Your eyes will get clear up when you start facing the hard realities in Canada. Those who had made this mistake in the past are ashamed to come on social media to talk about it. The ones talking on Twitter are 'freshers' who just arrived.

5. If you want to secure 2nd passport for your kids, you don't necessarily need to immigrate to achieve this. There are other ways, one method is overseas child birth.

6. You're 5x more likely to be shot and rubbed in New York than in Lagos. Poor neighborhoods all over the world has more crime rates. The thing is, when you finally made it in Nigeria,you can move to high brow areas with lesser crime.

7. Nigerians are spending up to 8millions ($21k) and above to immigrate to Canada/US whereas an average canadian or American citizen can't boast of $10k in their bank A/C's. They live pay check to pay check.

8. Some Nigerians claims that they ain't relocating because of the money but because of good infrastructure, good health care system, value for their money etc. That's a lie! 98% of Nigerians who're eager to travel out are relocating because of economic reasons. There are good infrastructure, good health care system and value for money in countries like Kuwait, Russia, Brazil, South Korea, Chile etc but Nigerians ain't trooping there, indicating that their preference for Canada/US is purely based on economic reasons.

9. It's cheaper to live in Nigeria. Canada/US promises higher minimum wage but the system will still take it away from you. It's like giving you with one hand and taking from you with another. $2k (N760k) will pay for your one year rent of 2 bedrooms apartment in a good location in Nigeria but same amount will only fetch you one month rent of a match box apartment in Canada/US.

10. This is not to stop you from traveling out but to inform you on the true realities. Economic immigration should be left for lower or working class who're struggling or to young lads who wants to school abroad and thereafter further their career overseas. Not to deceive Nigerians already earning good in corporate offices in Nigeria to resign and relocate where they will be employed as security guards or to deceive business owners who's businesses are thriving in Nigeria to close down business and relocate. Don't let them deceive you with the hype. Money don't grow on trees anywhere in the world.
Fact but don’t try to compare a developed country
With an undeveloped country the difference between these two is very clear
An 18 year old in the state get paid doing nothing just Because he/she is a citizen
A student in Canada is building house here in Nigeria
You won’t build a hut if you’re a student here and you’re working
Although no where is easy but I’ll choose that western life over and over again

I'm so sorry you're blind and have confused suffering as lifestyle. Best thing that happened to me is moving to Australia. No need for much talk, this write up is so disgusting, please do not listen to him for the sake of your children and generations to come.

My brother, reason why people want to travel is more than all these you have mentioned...

People want to Japa to keep their sanity!

Here is a jungle filled with toxic elements.

A place where you are lied to and smacked on the face as if you have no brains...

A dog enjoys in Australia more than a full bloodied citizen of poverty stricken naija

I don’t want to be a billionaire, I just want to live a sane life; a place where logic works and where I can die smiling...

If you listen to vices that tell you not to travel when you are chanced to, be ready to explain to your kids why Nigeria is a failed state and why you are part of the failed system by failing them...

Are you more patriotic than all the soldiers that waste their lives why some demons in high places are busy playing off their lives like pawns in a chess game?

What you should tell people is that there are countries they can migrate to and fulfill their dreams other than Canada and co.

God no go shame us o

Solution to the problem in your house is to relocate to your neighbor's house right?
