Well, I have no stories to share.

But I'll say lack of information is what pushed many into the suffering they are passing through overseas.

Some are tricked my pictures they find online.

Some are tricked by a common lie that things are so easy abroad and you would be handed a dream job on your arrival.

Some think accommodation is easy to get and you would have made enough salary to pay house rent.
But they don't even realize that in some places rent is monthly and you pay light and water bills.
Nothing is free over unlike in Nigeria where you can get water for free

Many people even believe that in the overseas, graduating from a university means automatic jobs

Many people even believe that in the overseas, university admission is sure

It is this same lack of information that makes people insult everything about Nigeria. This is what Hollywood movies have done to them

No
Hell NO

Never cheesy
God forbid cheesy
I reject am cheesy


I move away from Nigeria not only because of me but for the future kids cool and better life for them.


Nigeria was so bad for me, that I travelled to Libya 2 times and I created a thread about it the first time here in 2011.

Libya of 2021 with all the war still better past Nigeria because they know it’s war but Nigeria is not at war yet we can’t sleep with eye closed



Na papa who no hustle dey wait for his children to feed him when he is old cheesy cheesy

I hate it when people complain about bill they paid when they leave Nigeria but have forgotten that those bills are the reason, that country you are living is functioning.

Good health care, Jobs, good education, great transportation and Security.

Please stop converting those money to Naira because you aren’t spending Naira over there.

Can I enjoy basic things in Nigeria with 50K Naira or even 100K salary vs $3K basic salary in the USA vs €2K salary in Germany?

In most European or Asia countries, Education and healthcare are free and they are world class.

Ask yourself that question
If you want comot for Nigeria, just plan am well, I know many guys that went to UAE as Doctors, Nurses and IT professionals.

Well, they do but not common like the south Nigeria.
Most northern go to Africa countries and if they leave outside Africa then it’s mostly Northern government scholarship things for them cool unlike Southern government.
An average northern no get problems like southern person.
The northern get better connection once they finish schooling unlike the southern

2 stories

1st story

I met a waiter at rhapsody in ikeja shopping mall, who regretted leaving Nigeria for dubai, i asked him why? He said he left his stable job to Dubai, got to dubai and was earning 70k, was also living in a shared accommodation with 4 people, after working for 5 months, he resigned and left Dubai for Nigeria.

2nd story

My cousin left his well paid job for Canada, sold his properties in naija and moved to Canada with his family, first 8 month of his life was hell upon earth, from bills to bills, from one low wage job to another, the neighborhood he was living with his family was infested with gangs, the public school was also infected with gangs, his children got bullied because of their accents, his wife, even though supportive couldn't get a good job, bros was tired of everything.

So he decided to solve his problem by moving back, after the scrap they could save in Canada, my guy and his family moved back to Nigeria, they had to start afresh, thank God, he had a supportive family and friends, they use their connections to help him find another good job but what is lost is lost till today he still regrets selling his properties for Canada.

It is true, most Northerners don't move abroad or don't stay abroad for long, after their studies they come back home.

One i know studied in turkey, after his studies he came back home to work like every other person.

The other i know, went to the uk to study, after his studies, he came back home to start a poultry farm.

You should ask yourself if Turkey and UK have work conditions for foreign graduates after their studies.

Most countries don't accommodate foreign graduates after studies.

I understand Turkey don't have good jobs for Africans but in the Uk, their are opportunities for africans, you could get a 2 year staying visa after your education.

Atleast you won't be killed because of Cow and u won't be killed due to stray bullet

Work hard ,pay your bills and enjoy satisfaction of you being treated like a human being instead of being a animal in a zoo

Ikwerelastborn:

What of those blacks killed like animals and fowls in the USA? Or the mass shootings there,I'm sure you haven't left Nigeria before because if you had,you will be more informed than this ignorance u showed

Is Usa the only country abroad ignoramus.
Regarding USA, every body in whole world know who
Eric garner ,George floyd and countless blacks killed by police ,it's reported in newspapers.
What about zoo ,do you know the names of people killed by SARS in last 10 years or people killed by customs in Ogun or people killed by army in Imo.

When you talk ,talk sensibly ,don't show your stupidity to the whole world

Well to survive overseas you need to be equipped with a lot of information & be ready to work very hard. You have to be specific & realistic , what’s ur purpose of going ? What & how exactly am I going to achieve it. Do your research and don’t rely on general speculations. I know of someone who sold everything and moved to Cyprus, after 2 months dude came back and had to start over again.

Naija may be hard, but it’s one of the freest places to actually live. In Most developed countries you pay for everything to almost the air you breathe. As a Nigerian who is not used to that you may find it very difficult to adjust coz u probably won’t be prepared for it. People succeed though, but with extra hard work, defined planning and a good support system I think.

As for the person talking about Northerners not traveling abroad. That is not true. They do, but they’re not as vocal as our Southern folks, especially in the media space.

Chai . Ur 2nd story bros nah ajebutter . No confirm Ajepako go reach Canada go ever think of coming back to Nigeria. thats why its said if you are earning around 200k plus in naira per month , Abroad is not for you to relocate rather for enjoyment . but people wey dey do factory work ,shift work join , wey they enter danfo ,and molue join , wey dey sweat for body like fowl for naija , nah them abroad and relocation fit work for. People wey be say them get strength to dey do 2 to 3 jobs in a day , people wey no dey look uche face. Person wey never get AC for Car , Those ones would do everything to adapt to the new environment.

Those ones are rugged ,not like they've tasted wealth before traveling. Or them get one big money for somewhere . They hustled themselves abroad and they keep the hustling spirit tight over there.
