Who knows if ur supposed friend is already late but was kind of saving you from imminent danger, death trap from around your environment hence the disappointment. Any disappointment may be a blessing in disguise. Just thinking � out loud �.

It is well
I was almost pushed to console and advice you based on my own experiences as many here would want to do, but I've also found it ludicrous when people want to console someone who lost his sister they start talking about how they too have lost sister, and even brother, step sister, future and past brothers sef.
So my dear be strong, take heart.
You did one of the right things - you went back!

No matter where you go, remember the road that would lead you home, wole Thomas
The other right thing you could have done would have been to doggedly fight and breakthrough in this Lagos.
My dear many celebrities you see, P square, Ali Baba and Co slept in bar beach oh... they struggled and made it.
But you see in that same Lagos, many have been rendered homeless from that Iganmu clean-clear-up like in many other areas.
Like the prodigal son (not you oh) but I always tell people if where you are is not for you, go back home.
PS: God bless that stranger who helped you complete your fare in Jesus name, amen

#NigeriaShallBeGoodForOrdinaryNigerians
#StayStrongAndDetermined

The sentence in italics: people do this to show the person that they can relate to their situation because they have been there and the advice they are giving comes from a truly empathetic state.

I'd rather take advice from someone who has gone through the journey I just started.

The scammer didn’t have to do that, he could have simply asked and get his own, without being a criminal. People who have a choice to get something legitimately should rather not resort to criminality to get it. Our mentality is really weird.

All you need now is a hustler's ambition / mindset, you need to grind like one who has no mother or father, its cold out there.

In Nigeria, there are two classes of people (Living things and non living things)...you need to be amongst the living and stop whinning and complaining about this and that, nobody has it easy. If everyone comes to Nairaland beer parlor with his or her story, you go thank God for your life.

Let me give you a brotherly advice, and I hope you work on it...
First of all I counsel people and I have done that on nairaland for a while... I have met great and good guys...
I dropped a story about my experience teaching in two schools as a corper and would not mind partnering with schools in abuja, but some accused me of looking for teaching job... Never ever mind what people say...
Back to the matter...
As a graduate, teaching and earning 15k, e no bad... But once you have a good (android) phone, go to any car stand of your choice around your area... Listen well, any good car stand and ask to see the manager... Tell him you want to help him market his cars and get good buyers... 90% of car stand managers will sign u on... Tel him you will be paid a small commission after sales...
Pick up your phone, snap as many cars as your phone memory can take, open a dedicated twitter ac, IG ac, Facebook ac, WhatsApp ac, ac etc... Take out time to post this cars, make sure you have the actual prices of this cars... You can add as much as #250k on it... Bring down the negotiations to as low as making #50k if need be just so I can sell. Set your monthly target... I assure you, if you get I client in a month, u make around #100,000k once you start growing, you can get as much as 5-10 client from all over the country and that hits you over #1m for just helping others sell their cars, Note all you invested was your time, energy, phone and data... No big financial capital...
Do not restrict yourself to cars, go for industrial machines as well, caterpillars, mikano gens, any thing, then you look for those big companies that need them and try to call their attention to it or market it to them... You may not sell in 3 months but when you manage to get a client to buy just 1 caterpillars, my brother you will instantly forget that u suffered before...
A friend of mine was marketing a silo for a local wielder, he received a call all the way from kebbi state, the purchase was made in Ilorin, he made #1.8 mil from buyers and #400k from seller... He still got a referral from that deal. Wake up bro...
Within a month or two, come and pay (tite).
I drive uber/bolt in abuja, market cars, sell commodities such as beans, maize, wheat,
ginger,onions, name it... In bags and tonnes
And I make nothing less than half a mil monthly...We all blessed my nigga !

A guy did similar thing to me 3 years ago. Met him somewhere in PH, total stranger, he asked me what I do for a living, I told him. (I haven't had much luck with people just helping so I don't beg or expect much from people)

He told me what he does and how he makes like 500,000 in a month (not some illegal stuff). He'd train me; we exchanged contacts, he handed me 1k to buy top up and call him. Hmm!

Got home, called him with like 10 different lines, over the next one month, he never answered. sent him loads of texts, emails, Facebook msg. Didn't hear from him again.

Nigeria is tough; be content and ready to start small. The country is counterfeit

I would not do it to another but I would not place myself in the same position. some of these people play games !!

they both agree but I think his friend was reluctant to say yes, but couldn't disappoint. so his only option was to go dark and come up with excuses later.

So don't put people in this situation again. if he or she is not your family, don't tell people to allow you to stay.

btw, what's your business if he is living fake live on social media ?

if you don't understand, let me give you a simpler example. suppose you have N2000 naira with you, and your friend want's you to share. you have other obligations, and if you dash am part of the money, you no go fit pay the rent. So you agree, but when friend come for money, you disappear. it's the same analogy. it means you are being greedy.

btw, what's your business if he is living fake live on social media ?


Why promise to do what you cannot do in the first place? Is there a crime in explaining the situation you're in, and therefore the reasons you cannot offer them help at a particular point in time?... This, I'd really like to know.

Now, between revealing your situation - reason as to why you can't help out, and making false promises which you know quite well that they'd never materialize, which is right?... In my opinion, any one who would take the second option (especially with a view to vanish at the very end... What!! Really??), is a very wicked, insensitive, cheap, untrustworthy person, one who needs to be avoided at all costs.

Also, there's nothing wrong in asking anyone for a favor, but due to experience/stories I've heard, I do not, even when they make promises ( Infact, i was brought up this way). I only expect that others would be more careful.

Finally, I highlighted the fact that he may be living fake life on social media because that is most probably the reason OP fell for this disposition of his.

slam7000:


Stop making yourself to be the victim here. I despise your friend and such attitudes from people but your number one mistake was naivety. You obviously saw photos of him on Facebook then believed that all was well with him. All those flashy bits you saw were all fake and he probably also started telling you lies from the beginning before you opened up about your predicament.
I’m not making excuses on his behalf but you don’t travel from PH to Lagos with just N16k in your pocket to live with a guy who occupies a 2 bedroom apartment hoping to stay with him for 3 months.

You should be thanking your God for not meeting him at all. Your little experience in being homeless will make you stronger. Think and stop depending on people.

I’m sure you had lots of opportunities to earn little cash here and there but avoids them because the jobs were too dirty and degrading for someone like you. Know this...there are lots of dirty jobs out there but the cash in your hands doesn’t tell the source.

Like you, a friend called his cousin that he was coming to the Uk some years back...this guy landed at Heathrow, called his cousin and guess what?...the number went into voice mail grin grin but he wasn’t that silly, he had plan B and C. His cousin posts photos of himself in winter jackets, combat trousers and Rockport boots even in summer. My guy didn’t know the difference between summer and winter. Like you he saw a successful person but then he wasn’t fooled. He hit the ground running, never wasted time moaning about the lies and mistreatment. He got it right, became a success.

Don’t be deceived by Facebook and social media photos.
You can achieve in Ph what you hoped to achieve in Lagos. Get out there and work. Nigeria is tight and hard but there are lots of things you can do to build yourself up.

This is perhaps the most realistic of all comments here so far, OP, you do not set out for a journey of three months to Lagos with just 16k in your pocket, and to crown it all, you had no back up plan. You should learn to trust people less for your own sanity.

I once declined to help a fellow stranded friend in lagos. He came from abk, he had a job interview in Abuja and I'd already promised him the money but, didn't give him the money, and I didn't block him, I just blue ticked his messages and declined his calls.

I even posted 3 cups of loud, worth more than the tf he was asking, on my WhatsApp so he could see.

You humans can be very greedy and wicked. When you needed hand to lift up from your situation and later you become greedy and disloyal. For me, it's good he didn't introduce you to any connection. I have stopped connecting friends to my source of food on my table. Many people like you are back stabbers but I am not saying you are already.

I helped two close friends who were struggling to feed their families but what did I get? It turned out betraying me and till now I regret wishing it never happened.

In simple terms you lost the battle because you couldn't withstand the storm when your faith was tested. You ran back to your comfort zone. Timidity dwells in you yet you are looking for a rich life. let me tell you that God used that guy to remove you from your comfort zone, you should have remained in Lagos and faced the street. There would your glory locate you. You forget Abraham didn't know his destination when he left his father's house. He had a choice of returning but he didn't. As for that one writing textbook dishing advice, where I knew he's a fraud is after saying he makes more than half a million, yet he's still asking for tithe, yes his advice is an eye opener however his claims are false. It's my job to sniff out lies in a perfectly painted truth. No man will ever reveal what he actually makes so I caught him there.. In summary all I have to say is you messed up. You did what you knew best and that's running back to mommy. Enjoy your breast milk.

This is definitely the dumbest comment so far.

What a friend did to me last week.

Just like in my case, so many graduates in the country are today, traumatized, depressed or even suicidal. Nothing is more depressing than seeing oneself jobless after several years of graduation. More annoying is when there's no finance to even start a business no matter how brilliant the business idea could be. If I have capital or even a collateral to use and get some money somewhere, I would rest completely from job hunting.

My ordeal.
Few months ago, I stumbled on a friend on Facebook whom we were school mates back in secondary school. His parents resided outside the state which he normally came back on school resumption and would go back during holidays.

On meeting him on Facebook, taking a look at his pictures, he's obviously doing well and claimed he's working with an international NGO. I told him my pains which is unemployment. Immediately, he was happy and telling me not to worry again that with his connections here and there, I'll get a job. His promise was to fix me either in the NGO, an insurance company, factory work or any other place of which he has links and connections.

We talked extensively and negotiated my movement and arrived I should come over last week. The plans was to stay in his 2 bedroom apartment and until 3-4 months when I can rent my own place. So I moved from Rivers state to Lagos Monday last week with just 16k on me. En route Lagos, we were keeping in touch so to know how closer I am and until I got to Lagos (God is Good Motors park) around 8pm. I called him that I have arrived the park and he said he was coming to pick me.

Long story short, that was the last time his number went. Initially, I thought it was network, or may be temporary low battery. I kept dialling the number through out the night but it never went again. Of course I had no choice than to sleep in the park. Woke up the next morning hoping his number would go but still same. I had no body else in Lagos nor knowing any where as that was my first time in Lagos. So I was just roaming around the park the whole day like a lost sheep, hungry, frustrating and pains but still hoping for his call but none came. When I tried reaching via Facebook and realized I was blocked, that was when it dawned on me that I have to start going back immediately. Already, transport fare from PH to Lagos finished about N10,500. So I was left with about 4k on me. At that point in the evening, I knew my best bet as I said earlier was to find my way back immediately but I didn't even have enough cash for my return. I had no option than to start telling people about my predicament and appealed for help to raise fund to return home the next morning. I was mocked and laughed at while some were asking to buy my phone at a very ridiculous amount. But then at that point, I could have sold it at the ridiculous amount but the phone was the only medium of communication with people especially my mum who was already worried over the journey right from the onset. I kept approaching people to help me and until one man graciously completed the money for me and I paid for my return.

On reaching home, I did nothing than thanking God that at least my case wasn't like that of late Iniobong Umoren. At least I came back home alive...which is the most important thing. But what I don't understand is why the guy chose to be that wicked to me forgetting this world is a very small place. I mean if there was never a job, why did he have to put me through that? Anyways, I have since moved on. Not even swearing/cursing him but leave everything for God. Such is life!

Fellow nairalanders, that is the dairy of a Nigerian job seeker. This leave me with the question, "will Nigeria ever be good for ordinary Nigerian?"

I'm so sorry OP. You will make it and this will form part of your past bitter story.

Mine took me in on the night I was traveling back home after the end of my NYSC. It was midnight and my parent advised me to not proceed to our hometown (for security reasons) but find a way to sleep over in our state capital where I had reached, even though it was very close. This my friend took me in (in their family house) even though I did not call him earlier enough.

I "OFFENDED" HIM when we were in school. I read some people's comments asking if you offended this your friend in Lagos. I don't think I actually offended this my own friend sha. He noticed that I started distancing myself from him when I became tired of some of his annoying behaviours.

He knew he had (natural) problem and even complained about inability to change and I needed my own peace of mind. We are (were) good but I started making friend with another guy I already knew from way back but ignored because of him.

I posted a picture on Facebook recently and tagged him. He posted an indirect message on his story that some people should learn to be on their lane. It pained me because we're still good and I did not even totally cut him off in school nevertheless.
