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.

Lol...Op was brutally frank in this writeup.

Well, it's a matter of choice; though I know most Nigerians would love to relocate if they met all the requirements.

so how come most Nigerians have not made it in Nigeria? Even the much celebrated PayStack guys had to travel to San Francisco in USA before they could make it.

No Diaspora Nigerian has ever made it into Forbes billionaire list.

Adebayo Ogunlesi.Google him. He founded an assest management company worth over $100 billion dollars. Of course its investment money but PE and IM company's receives 2% of total invested money and 20% of interest on capital.
I am sure that the man is a billionaire but dnust don't crave the exposure.

I'd rather be a diasporic Ogunlesi than a thieving Atiku.

My point is that , there is a certain level you get to in Nigeria that moving out of Nigeria should not even cross your mind.

Many reading this can never understand especially those that have not experienced some level of comfort in Nigeria. When I say comfort I know what I am saying, not those that will start calculating $25/hr salary and think that's a lot of money.


For those that are young and have the energy to hustle, YES, you can move.

Imagine someone with a good job in Nigeria, built a house or houses, set up a side business etc , rushing to CANADA, adjusting will be tough, many in that category regret so much.

Thank you for this great analysis.
privaldo:




You're also more likely to climb the ladder without bribery or "man know man" if live in a working system like Canada. There are so many Nigerians who are wealthy and making it outside country, such as the CEO of Calendly, and not everyone wishes to make the Forbes list.



The Lebanese, Indians, and Chinese are also trooping into Canada and it's like massively. Immigration stats shows that Chinese and Indians are among the highest legal immigrants in Western countries. Not everyone one must stay in a developing and destabilized economy that lacks direction.



Again, you have no stats for this. The United States churns out the highest amount of millionaires annually, and also the largest amount of startups globally this can't be achieved in a nation like Nigeria which practices exactly what you talked of.



Someone's choice can't be termed stupid because it doesn't suit your narrative. People live Nigeria to Canada and other developed countries every month and guess what they survive and adapt to the system.

Why will a Software Engineer work in Nigeria and earn N800,000 a month but still be scared of harassment/death from security operatives when Canada can offer you more money for your job, and security of your life.



It's not just about giving your children second passports after all Brazil offers that, it's about allowing them grow up in a sane environment where things work and people, government, and institutions can be held accountable for their actions.



You're using New York as an example compared to Lagos where this happens everyday in almost every location. The killings in New York mostly takes place in just Brooklyn but in Lagos everywhere is a hotspot.

Again, a person will have to wait in Nigeria to become wealthy to live in high brow area to be safe. Living in the so called "high brow area" is not even cheap as you state it, rent for a house in Lekki can go as high as N 800,000 for a self contain, the big question is how many Nigerians can afford it?



It is wiser to live pay check to pay check than to have all the money in Nigeria, and be killed by either a poor health system, unprofessional security operative or any of the inadequacy that dwells in Nigeria beside they will pay tax which will solve most of the problems that bothers average Nigerian.



There are Nigerians in all this countries you called but some Nigerians have their reason for preferring the West above all this other countries, some of which are;

- Right to Freedom of Speech: Aside South Korea, and Brazil every other country you called trample on the right to free speech including Chile.

Also there is nothing wrong in migrating to a country because of their economy, the UAE is getting stronger economically and people are migrating there, so this your point isn't valid.



Your comparison is awful, you compare countries based on their purchasing power and not just saying "it's cheaper to live in Nigeria". Canada/United States is more powerful than Nigeria economically, so the living standards are high. Someone from the United States/Canada who immigrated to Switzerland/Norway will also find the living standards high.



This is a lie most you "stay in Nigeria preachers" peddle and the gullible always believe it without further research/inquiries. If you migrate as an Accountant to the United States/Canada you will work as an Accountant, you may need some certificates to practice there like we have ICAN in Nigeria this is same for every other profession.

Nigeria is on the list of countries with poor/worst ease of doing business and it has been on the list for a longtime and it isn't leaving it soon. Do you know why it makes that list? It's because this no system or structure put in place for business owners. Any Tom, Dick or Harry can claim to be a task force and take money from business owners, and this cycle continues as more of them will come thereby ruining the business.

My own 2kobo...if you want to make stupendous money, provided you have a fairly secured business and you know the system very well.... you'd make far more money in Nigeria than you can make in Canada within the same range of time. This Nigeria sabi favour already financially-secured hustling people die. That's why the rich gets richer non-stop here.

But if you want a sane environment where the system is fair to everyone, then Nigeria is definitely not the place to be.

He didn't remember that none of the Presidents of Canada or the US travels abroad and stays 3months.

He should have mentioned that people don't go to jail abroad for criticizing the governments style of leadership which is so unfavourable.

Maybe I should remind him that palliatives meant to ease the pains of citizens are not withheld for months after d Covid-19 effects.

He should take note that In Canada/US the government doesn't send her military to open fire on peaceful unarmed protesters...

Re: Canada Hype And Travel Rush: Here Are Things You Need To Know by bobluck: 9:12am On Jan 11
Princewill1:
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.

You have done well by sharing something you dreamt of, who is to be blame for that nobody i guess. My one cent is that i forgive you for trying to be like politicians you called fraud and the ponzi schemes scammers you painted.

Is wrong not to feel what others are feeling and pretend you understand. Living in this country is terrible let alone having Buhari as president makes it hellish.

May God forgive you your sins for this post...am sure he will because he is a merciful father.

You forgot to mention kidnapping, banditry, SARS, Nepotism, marginalisation, general intorerance and bigotry, poor education, poor healthcare, unaccountable leaders.. etc. Some valid points were made in this post but these ones I mentioned tip the balance to Canada for me
