Good evening guys, I need your advice on this: I am pressured by my family not to travel to Taraba state for job due to various news about insurgency whereas I served there. My parent don't want me to leave and I find it difficult to stay at home please i need your suggestions..

It is someone who is alive that can work.

Please don't take an unnecessary risk.

If you have money saved somewhere to pay for ransom or if you are ready to play 2 odds with your life, please proceed on the trip to Taraba.... Do a weekend sightseeing trip to Borno, Benue or Zamfara as well!

Best wishes.

I am not trying to discourage you but the North is not where you wil hustle, forget the cheap food in the North, you will look at your life in the next 10years and find out that you are in same level.
The lifestyle of the Northerners made it that way.
I've looked my self almost five years here and my life has been different.

If you re sure of getting a job there.. I did say u should damn all consequences and go. Except if the job is not certain.

Same parents will taunt u with your joblessness while reminding you that u eat too much food without contributing anything when they re fed up with u.


See ehh....everything in life is all about risks...intact, you living in Nigeria at this point in time is a risk on its own, so why the fear of taking a risk on a risk?

The truth is the chances of getting job in the north is higher than any where in Nigeria. Your qualification can get you something no matter how small it is. Bros take the risk. All die na die

Follow your thought bro.

However, north is not really bad the way outsiders are analyzing it.

My brother, there isn't any better advice one can give to you than the one you will give to yourself.

Best of luck in your struggle sha.

My sincere advice:


If you are from the south south or south east igbo, don't go....the north see all us us down here as nyamiri.

But if you are from the south west or middle belt, you can go!

Most times people do things without involving God in everything. Pray before you go so as to get direction so you won't return the same way you went. If you're a Christian pray and ask God for a solution, if you're a Muslim visit Alfas and ask them to pray for you and if you're a traditionalists visit them and ask them to help you check if that place you're travelling to will favour you. I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ but am only saying this cause you might not be a Christian and you might belong to other religion.

I love your talk on the Christian part.

Exposure occurs when u have had interface with various situations, encounters, et al. Even if the devil dines in the North, there is always something to learn from there. What is all this lifestyle talk, u think your lifestyle is better over there, who told u? Remember, you are a savage elsewhere too and it doesn't stop u from getting there if you really have too.

My brother, you are responsible for your own life o. I also served in Taraba 3 years ago and went home (delta) immediately after service in 2019. Na so I search for jobs tire even travelled to Abuja to apply for jobs all to no avail. I had to move back to Jalingo to manage school job and to be honest schools here in Jalingo pay better than the ones in the south. I currently work with one of the biggest schools here, basic pay is way above minimum wage not to talk of other side benefits. My family members and friends almost crucified me for the decision I took but, when I ask them say who among them go fit foot my bills, nobody fit answer. I may not be rich but at least I dey pay my bills with enough change left. Taraba is 10 times safer than most states in the south. I never encounter any wahala. Insecurity issues here is not as it is in the other parts of the country.

And the cost of living is low. It made me save a lot when I worked in Lafia. Honestly if not for insecurity when travelling there, most northern cities are chilled.

Go for the job presently nowhere is safe in Nigeria just a few states because it hasn't gotten to their turn and I hope it doesn't.
That said ill also suggest you set a target and plan on been your own boss.
You can learn how to earn online even if it's $5 daily or offer your expertise online by creating your online presence to prospective clients readily available on the online community sphere.
In all make sure you are earning legitimately on a daily .

Proactivity Leads To Productivity.

Some people like u believed that all the northern states are not safe, but I can assure 100% that Kano, taraba, gombe, jigawa and bauchi are lot safer than all the states u consider safe. Night life in Kano is second to none, cheap foods, cheap houses and even cheap transportation. Security is 80%
