Kriss216:

You made your first million when Nigeria was still manageable. Can you make such amount if you venture into same business now? Be frank please.

Buhari economy is harsh on everyone. Any move to leave this country is a welcome development.
Not true, while you are complaining, pple are cashing out big time from legit businesses. I personally bought a land in 2016 and started building in the heat of burahis hard economy and today am living there. It's worth at least 5mil. Pple are still making it in this country OK!

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.


Alaaye!
The Indian, Chinese and Lebanese are here to used our looted funds, they are backed by the mighty. They are FRONTERS used by our treasury looters, if they came as normal businessmen, they can't survive.

If you have money please leave or get a 2nd citizenship.

Halifaxguy:


I had actually observed from your comments that you used every opportunity to paint Nigeria bad. You have not even stayed up to one year in Canada, you have started looking at those living in 9ja as stupid. This attitude is very bad and common to newcomers like you. I have seen some newcomers like you degrading Nigeria their home country in front of their white colleagues or friends. Very unfortunate indeed! Granted, Canada has a workable system to an extent while Nigeria system is messed up due to the ruling elites and average 9ja citizens. The fact you are currently living in Canada does not make you much better than someone who has a good job or business in 9ja and doing well in his endeavors. Like I always say, no where in the world is paradise. Every country has their pros and cons. Those who want to migrate to Canada should be allow to migrate in peace, and those who migrated to Canny should allow those living in 9ja to live in peace and stop those unnecessary comparisons. Not everyone will make in 9ja same as not everyone will make it in Canny. The prayer is God should bless the work of our hand wherever we find ourselves.

Nice post.

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.

It is people that think life is all about making money and enjoying luxuries that will follow this poster. How do you live comfortably in a country in this digital age that can't even get the basic things done. A man that has money can basically afford alternative sources of electricity but does it mean he's happy about it. Why can't someone just pay his bills and reap the dividends.

There are different types of abroad, which one did you go? If it is Malaysia, bro that's not abroad. Cuz most of
you who managed to travel to one developing country are always fond of still claiming to have travelled abroad whereas it's still a developing country.

I believe it's not a first world country you are referring to as you have travelled abroad before.

I've never been to malaysia nor am I interested in going there.

In every index that applies to living standards (health, security, prosperity levels etc), Canada is far better, so what aspect are you talking of when you say living in Nigeria is far better? Is it the epileptic electricity supply, the unprofessional/brutal police force, bad roads, dilapidated infrastructure, nepotism (man must know man phenomena), kidnapping, banditry, terrorism, armed robbery or food insecurity (where the prices of food fluctuates widely based on issues)... what aspect exactly are you talking about? Sure some of those things that I just listed exist in Canada BUT they are all at extremely low levels in Canada.

As usual, the issue is you are likely earning a salary that is higher than the average Nigeria and you are shielded from a lot of things, so you can make a false (and pure subjective) claim that "living in Nigeria is far better than in Canada".

blackpanda:


The OP has already done that. That is enough info on the two
What i will add is that travelling abroad and living abroad are two different things. When u travel u only see the things the want u to see, the beauty, infrastructure etc. But when u are living there, the nightmare will dawn on u. That said, everyone can make up their mind as to what they wish. I cant say people should use my experience not to emigrate. I can only tell u what i know, living in naija is far better!

A bottle of Hennessy VSOP for you bro!!

In fact, numbers 2,3,7,and 9 are nothing but the undiluted truth! But when you tell them, they start cussing you out, indicating they're not informed!!

I make my money here, live large and go for vacations/shopping over there with hubby and kids. I can't relocate completely (except maybe I get a new appointment/job with transnational bodies like WHO, World Bank etc that requires moving abroad). Naija is actually a good place to live (based on your income tho' just as you rightly said), not ditching that for anything!

I was stopped today 12/01/2021 by a Nigeria soldier and almost got harassed just because I looked fresh. The mumu was asking me what I do for a living.

Do you know in Nigeria, it's a crime for you to look fresh and you can be killed by any police just for looking fresh? Do you know in Nigeria, it is a crime for you to use an iPhone? You can get killed just for possessing an iPhone. They no born you well make you follow olokpa drag and speak English.

Do you know once you drive a nice car you are tagged a Yahoo boy in Nigeria even if you make your money legitimately? If you try dragging with them just know they will pull the trigger and you are gone.

Brothers, this country is not safe for human beings to live. People live like animals here. All the rubbish they do here, do they do such in saner climes? That's why people are making the move cuz they don't want to die an untimely death.

On the 30 Dec, 2020 around 5pm in a broad day light, my phone, 2 ATM cards and wallet were collected from me with a locally made pistol by 2 robbers.

Now, after experiencing all these ordeal, you will now be preaching to me it is nice to stay in Nigeria and make all the money so as to top forbe list when you know that insecurity is a big issue in this country.

You haven't secured your life, it is money that is our issues? When you know that even the common basic needs of humans saner climes offer are celebrated as luxuries here in a country of over 200 million people.

When our lives are not safe, is it money that will now be our priority?

Let's be honest with ourselves for once.

My top priority right now is not money but peace of mind and freedom to move even in the night without the fear of being kidnapped or robbed.

So, let' be guided with what we wish for.

Brothers, this country is not safe for human beings to live. People live like animals here. All the rubbish they do here, do they do such in saner climes? That's why people are making the move cuz they don't want to die an untimely death.

On the 30 Dec, 2020 around 5pm in a broad day light, my phone, 2 ATM cards and wallet were collected from me with a locally made pistol by 2 robbers.

Now, after experiencing all these ordeal, you will now be preaching to me it is nice to stay in Nigeria and make all the money so as to top forbe list when you know that insecurity is a big issue in this country.

You haven't secured your life, it is money that is our issues? When you know that even the common basic needs of humans saner climes offer are celebrated as luxuries here in a country of over 200 million people.

When our lives are not safe, is it money that will now be our priority?

Let's be honest with ourselves for once.

My top priority right now is not money but peace of mind and freedom to move even in the night without the fear of being kidnapped or robbed.

So, let' be guided with what we wish for.

Insecurity in Nigeria is really a big joke, I honestly agree with you on that. What more can I say

All Nigerians cannot flee Nigeria to abroad, its not possible, so we must keep encouraging those that wish to stay back to do so without regrets

Of course, everybody cannot move. But those that choose to move and have the means, should not be discouraged.

No matter how we tried to paint Nigeria to be a nice place to stay, we should always have in the back of our minds that we will always fear for our lives.

There have been so much gunmen gunning down people lately. If you do check front page, you will see so many issues of people being killed here and there.

If we go out and we get back home, we always thank God. Cuz some go out and never return. That's Nigeria for you.

encorage nigerians to stay back? how do you encorage someone that hasent got 9 months salary to stay back. my junior brother just arrived 2 week ago. he said since their salary has been increased last year and they onnly gave him 6 month salary. he is into farming business too, i also invested in his business to help him but fulani guys have destroyed the farm with their cows.if you have the opportunity i beg leave joor. if you leave and you are abroad and you are not rich, please stay you will still be alright. i have a uncle who lived abroad for many yrs but now 65 recieves 2500 pounds in pension every months. you can go to another afrcan country to live a good life with your pension. there nigerians abroad that now live in other west african countries are enjoying their pension and are living a good life. if you are good in business and have the money, then stay in nigeria. but i still believe even if you are rich you need a secound passport. many rich nigerians have second passport for their family 2. because if anything happens you can easily relocate to your adopted country.

From my little experience of living in USA
I relocated Dec 2019 with my son though he is a United States citizen through CRBA to join my husband
I thank God every day that I did
Am a doctor and was working with a private hospital in PH before relocating .My salary is as135k and it was barely enough to make ends meet
I supplemented with treating people in their homes
Though am yet to start working in any field , am preparing for USMLE
I got a Job to work with ABIA state primary health care as. Medical officer but I turned it down for PP because they have not been paid for almost 2years
Abroad is not a bed of roses but am sure am more comfortable here
Because am not working my son qualified for Medicaid and I will always be grateful for it
One thing happened to my son and I even questioned my own practice in Nigeria
Even when I called my consultant pediatrician and told him what happened he said I should thank God I was in USA when it happened if not my son would have died.

I woke up one morning to find my son not responding to stimulation
I tried waking him up but he vomited and vomited again
I was scared because last night he didn’t want to sleep and was playing and hit his head on the wall, this resulted to a mild swelling on the head
Being a doctor I was thinking of medical possibilities and was scared
My husband was at work and couldn’t pick his calls
I called 911 and the came within 5 mins and my son was taken to Texas pediatric hospital
They people were in communication with the pediatrician on call
My son blood pressure was checked and found to be very low
Keep in mind my son was just 1 year old
Throughout my practice I have only seen pediatric blood pressure cuff once during my pediatric long case exam in medical school
After the exam it was as locked up
During my housemanship in a federal medical center we never used a pediatric cuff to check infants
I graduated in 2010 and have been practicing since then
Will continue the story
Let me attend to my son

This is one of the reasons (better healthcare) why I am working towards immigrating to Canada.

And I still insist, we should not make it look like those Nigerians that stayed back in Nigeria are fools......because in the real sense, they are the heroes.


It takes a courageous heart to remain in a place that needs fixing or to stay with someone in his or her time of trouble.....the faint hearted run away at the slightest fear.

Leaving Nigeria for abroad does not make anyone doing it a better person.....its just a decision. No matter how bad we paint Nigeria or how bad Nigeria becomes, some people, in fact a lot of people must stay back. If 30% of Nigerians make attempt to leave Nigeria to other countries, many countries will start repatriating Nigerians in their countries back to Nigeria irrespective of your residential status.....citizenship can be revoked so long as its not by birth and by indigenous parents

I was stopped today 12/01/2021 by a Nigeria soldier and almost got harassed just because I looked fresh. The mumu was asking me what I do for a living.

Do you know in Nigeria, it's a crime for you to look fresh and you can be killed by any police just for looking fresh? Do you know in Nigeria, it is a crime for you to use an iPhone? You can get killed just for possessing an iPhone. They no born you well make you follow olokpa drag and speak English.

I understand what u are saying but every country has their own challenges. In america too u can be shot dead by police just for being black and nothing will happen. At least in nigeria u can #EndSars or even petition national assembly, but when u are abroad u have no voice, u can't complain or do anything. You won't understand till u experience what I am saying. No country is perfect. They all have their problems.

Good. But is your father living according to the 24m he is earning per annum? Can the 24m he is earning really fund his lifestyle? Say the truth.

Some Fed Perm Sec in Nigeria can easily make 25m a month. And I’m not kidding..

As we got to the hospital
My son was taken to the pediatric emergency unit
A Ct brain was done immediately due to my history of head trauma
The result came out immediately and it was normal
Throughout my practice when I order for ct brain
The patient will go to another facility and the result will come out 48 to 72 hrs not immediately
Meanwhile the ct room was next door to the pediatric emergency unit
X-ray was done, drug screening, abdominal scan every thing was done at the emergency unit , ECG, cardiac ultrasound etc
Nothing was found and my son was still lethargic and not responding
Because his blood sugar was low, he has not eaten
The gave him dextrose while till trying to find out while he was not responding
The pediatrician thought of intussuception but abdominal uss eliminated it
So they asked me to list the medications we had at home
I did and they called the poison center and was told it’s likely clonidine an antihypertensive my husband uses that maybe he picked it and swallowed it
They told me the will give the reversal medication to see what happens
The did and my son woke up but usually short acting so the now decided to give him the infusion because they gave him a bolus

They doctors were so nice and knew I was worried gave me food , drink , water and told me he will be alright
They told me what they were doing at any given stage
We were later transferred to pediatric icu for monitoring when he became better
I didn’t go with any diaper because I was in a hurry
They gave me a bag of diaper , wipes, because he was on nil per oral he wasn’t given any food
But the nurses gave me food and water, bathing soap and towel
The next day he started eating and they gave me a food menu

We stayed for 2 nights
Upon discharge I was asked if I had transportation I said no
The called a cab for me, paid for it
Bought a new car sit for him because we didn’t go to the hospital with one ,used emergency vehicle
Though it was a hospital visit
It was a pleasant one
I really thank God
We normally do not check pediatric blood pressure in Nigeria
Mostly temp, PR, weight etc
My consultant in Nigeria told me to thank God it happened here because my options in Nigeria was limited
Now am more careful because they told child protective services
They called me and said they know it was an accident and can happen to anybody but I should be more careful and that it should not happen again
