ok 1st wrong assumption

2nd...the market rate determines the price. im talking of 1 bedroom going rate as of today.

Maybe 10-15 years ago it was at minmium 400$ but right now this is the ongoing rate. 900-1000$ per month

Typical apartment complex.


Some ppl now will rather live in Ghana than nigeria so one of the major problem of nigeria is basic amenties in the west as a black man u are like an aboki /mallam like. 2nd grade person.

The system is too rigid especially america - small thing jail. For example if police stop u and breathalyze u and u get DWI. U cannot get some good paying jobs withthat DWI on ur record

Why be 2nd grade when u can be 1st grade.

if all the basic amenties are functioning in nigeria, u will see how many abroad ppl will be trooping back enmasse
You watch toomuch TV thats your problem
you are a minimum wage aerner and you want to live in a whole apartment? why not house share? so you can pay for a room all-inclusive? who you wan to impress?
U drink and drive that your problem at least you get arrested in Nigeria you crash into people's house and kill a family and a whole generation spot the difference?
Even though you get a DWI in your record not everyone go to look for employment, loads of people are self-employed..DO your research very well you will be suprised howmany ex prisoners are working with skills acquired from corectional facilities.

Well, that's your own negative point of view.

Not everyone exploits people and not everyone wants to leave the country. And not everyone sees it as a hell hole.

Many people do not even want to raise their children in the U.S because of how insane the place has become.

Not everyone wants to be a slave and second hand citizen in another man's country because they want to decive themselves with so called making it.

If you think everyone exploits, you should change your circle.

U.S is vacation for me (even though I prefer other countrie)...not a place to put my tent. I detest the mentality of the average Joe in Dem cities. Rasing a kid there will be a no for me.
S
No matter how insane the US is it can never be as insane as a lawless shithole where nothing works.
A second class citizen in the US lives a far better quality of life than some big men in Niggeria.
You keep talkingnof this many people yet if I probe it will be one or two people you happen to meet.
I believe in facts backed by statistics. Mathematics dont lie. One plus one is 2 anywhere you go. You may not like it but it is what it is.
Its not a coincidence when you see long ass queues outside embassies of countries like US and UK

Why are there no such crowds outside the embassies of countries like Eritrea and Somalia?

Of the people leaving the country How many of them really come back? When you calculate numbers of those who go and stay vs those who go and come back what is the ratio? You havent answered that one you are telling me about "some people".
You are talking of holidays as if Niggerians take holidays.
Go to all the popular vacation spots around the world you will hardly see Niggerians there even in the peak of summer.

Living in Nigeria is better in many instances. And because people don't come back as much does not mean they wouldn't like to.

It's just like someone in Nigeria at a job they hate and they complain about constantly buy yet don't leave because of fear or inability to get a better one. And people then ask them why don't they leave that job.

This was why I made the last statement in my earlier comment.

Many would prefer U.S as a vacation spot but as for daily living and interactions and freedom, people would prefer their home country.

That's why many comfortable and rich people live in Nigeria. Its mostly the uncomfortable that want to escape. And there is no problem in that.

Many people do not like the taxation, loneliness, racism e.t.c that they experience over there.

How many of the 'rich' folks will thrive in America ??

Mr. Man what are you saying? And why are you arguing off point?

My comment you first quoted was based on those who are wealthy in the country of which I know many. And who couldn't care for moving to the U.S. Just like I also don't care like many of you.

I also said, there is nothing bad in someone uncomfortable moving out of the country. There are obviously more poor people in Nigeria than the rich. Why won't the embassies be full?

And your statement on second class citizens living far better than wealthy people in Nigeria just shows your sentiments not founded on reality and facts. What are they enjoying..lol...come Abuja first make I show you something...no be all these fake mathematics talk you dey yarn. How many wealthy Northerners or Igbo people do you even see running to go live abroad?

Is it not the abroad people visit anyhow?

Because you haven't met or don't know people.. doesn't mean others do not know.

There are also people who I know want to come back...but they can't because they have no worthy investment in Nigeria. And because they have valid reason of wanting to do so.

So when I see people abroad who write topics here on Nairaland about how they prefer Nigeria to the U.S and you ppl abuse them, I just shake my head.

Abeg leave mata.

LOL. Mathematics and logic rules over emotion and assumption any day. If you people employed more of that the country wont be the way it is.

See as you dey contradict yourself. You agree that poor people should migrate but at the same time you argue that living standards are better in Niggeria. If its so much better and so kind why are the poor ( and even the rich) willing to go and face racism and heavy taxation there?

See how in am effort to try and justify your false narratives you create a strawman Argument.

When for goodness sake did I say standard of living is better in Nigeria for everyone.

Please if you have comprehension issues stay of this argument.

There are many people who have been and live in the U.S that agree with what I earlier said.

When you have facts to make a logical argument, then quote me.

P.S: also the last question you posed shows you really have problems comprehending a message.

All these people wey never travel anywhere go dey argue. If you want to travel, travel.. no body hold you.

Son, never ever try to lecture me about the United States.

This thing still subscribes to the old philosophical idea that Nigeria is a wealthy country, a near failed state.

The same country that spend just a little above 30B USD to run it affairs, a country of about 200M people.

The fact that you are just getting by in that country and you look a lil bit better than millions does not mean everyone likes to live like that.

And yes the US like to develop it economy and they don't really need money from your 'elite' because all the resources they had will almost be equivalent to nothing in the states, South Korea, Germany and our allies are doing just that.

Besides Saudi is pouring billions to support jobs in America the magnitude poor countries like yours will only realize in 10 years selling hydro carbon.

You seems to over estimate the significant of that country and the people who refer to themselves as rich, maybe it blind optimism or stupidity or sheer ignorant who knows ??

People move from their countries for a reason. You need to understand that most likely they feel bad in their country. And no matter how you feel, you need to be able to help others. When refugees or emigrants come to your country, it is not easy for them. In addition to the difficult situation, racists appear who, knowing nothing, demand obedience from others.

Converting it to naira is foolish and doesnt give an accurate picture of the purchasing power of the dollar.

In parts of europe a cup of coffee is about 2 euros
Which when you convert to naira is almost 1k naira. But almost everyone can afford to buy that cup of coffee

Oga go sit down abeg.

Maybe you just want to argue for argument sake by pointing things that I never inferred.

I can actually lecture you on the disparities between the U.S and Nigerian economy.

I never (for your comprehension) ever said Nigeria economy was better and favorable for everyone. I only pointed out a minor instance.

Please go back and reread my previous comment. Because you are already talking off point. And like i pointed out not everyone is all about money.

Besides, how much do many rich people have in the U.S compared to the elites in Nigeria? Who are the people buying many expensive properties in Dubai and U.K? How much does a governor have here compared to a governor in the U.S? Have you been to the embassy to see how they are willing to grant VISA'S to rich elites for their investments over in their country? Have you been to the North to see how people spend money there?

Saudi has only a minority stake of investments of nearly 10billion in the U.S and you are busy screaming with false info. How much is that compared to the whole U.S?

Sayonara.
