I'm a fresh graduate who is also aspiring to become a footballer, but it's nearly or even impossible to achieve that in my state (Kogi), I really don't know anyone in Lagos but I'm planning to move there for opportunities.

Bro am a graduate too.. full time footballer too
Right from my primary school ah don make my mind up seyyy na football i go play.. and the dream still dey up till now..
I graduated from University of Benin. Base on seyy my real family no dey stay for Benin, house rent na issue, food na issue, clothes na issue, football kits na issue, consistency in training sometimes na issue, match focus sometimes na issue.. i decided to go back to nasarawa state at least my parents dey there.. ah dey eat, train well, match fit, kits no be issue again.
Try dey ur kogi for now, no rush go where u never ready go. As i dey lafia now. I don dey plan for so many football programs. If I get the money i go there and try my best. Sometimes coaches weyy get my number dey invite me too. You too go dey check screening wey dey available.
My advice is try forget lagos matter.
Abj, kaduna and some other western or southern states have better football programs too

LAGOS IS OVER SATURATED, THERE'S NO POINT COMING HERE WITH YOUR 2OK, FIND SOMETHING DOING AROUND YOU FIRST, ENTER STREET HUSTLE FIRST AS WARM UP, Lag isn't greener pastures... only if you wan come hustle illegal or you have some connections or you are lucky or you are ready to hustle like a bastard, and playing football in nigeria, I LAUGH!!, YOU ARE BETTER OFF LEARNING A SKILL BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT YOU'LL USE TO PAY YOUR BILLS.

Lagos is not worth it bro. Ahmed Musa, Emmanuel Dennis, Moses Simon, Samuel Chukwueze, Etebo, and a whole lot of others didn't come to Lagos before they made it.

I'm also a fresh graduate working in Lagos, I've just spent a week here. I traveled from Osun State. But you know what, I'll soon leave this rat race state. It doesn't worth it.

I believe I will make it in Osun State. This Lagos na just hype angry

I feel sorry for the people that listen to you or depend on you.... The worst thing any man can do is tell another man that their vision and mission for themselves is bad.... Never do that again... Destiny is for confused men.

Back to op... The way you take raise 20k, try and raise more that way.... Have your mission and vision in your heart... Believe in yourself, know yourself, stay principled, stay honest, stay cheerful, read and research, strategise and re- strategise if/when needed, don't be afraid to ask things or ask why and most importantly don't be afraid to fail... Stay true to your vision and mission, work and improve on it everyday... People you meet along the way will either pull you down or push you up, but if you believe and do all I suggested your light will shine.... What you plant is what you sow or harvest.

DM me directly and I will send you my two cents to help you achieve your dreams.... Stay well, positive and honest to your drive.

I hope you see my advise.
If you’ve actually made up your mind to come to Lagos, guy come.

I’m an Igbo boy and coming to Lagos wasn’t as it might be for you considering your present situation because even though I didn’t have money, it was easy to meet fellow Igbo boys like myself.

Before you come, try apply for jobs with all these security companies in Lagos. Halogen security, Synergy, Prime, Daniel security etc. there’re tens of them here.

Try to convince them to post you to the Island.
E get why
With your qualifications, and small lie that you have 5 years or more experience on the job, they’ll give you a job. Tell them you want night job. So that you sleep where you work and look for one barbing salon you go dey chill in the day. ( please no chill in a bet9ja or betting shop) e get why

Then please mingle and be friendly. If you want to go far, mingle with other tribes more. I been notice that my Kogi friends then, were contented with security which I feel is not good.

Please be brave enough to quite the security work after 1 year except nah chill work. Save, invest, be friendly( not mumu) and you’ll be fine.

I still dey Lagos like this oo
But if I were you, my plan will be to leave the country after Lagos.
E also get why

Cheers
