Raalsalghul:so you mean they won't send money home?
And they shouldn't have anything to do with Nigeria? Even if they are to be sending 300 pounds every month, that's more than 200k Naira. "No matter where you go, remember the road that will lead you home."

adonainana:There's no nurse that lives on 1500 pounds per month.
stop spreading ignorance.

adonainana:Walthamstow, Chingford, Leyton, and Leytonstone. Was my ends.
So why couldn't Africans/black people be more like these folks? That has been my questions all my life, are they smarter than us?

So how much are they on sir
You call people ignorant yet you don’t even know what NI and income tax is and even if you were on £28k a year your take home would still be exactly 1500 per month
People like you annoy me so much

I think they have a bigger support network for iinstwnce Indians have been coming to the Uk since God knows when
They have a big support network which transcends financially , also the side hustles thhey end up doing such as setting up restaurants, shop ends up brining more cash
I have never seen a Nigerian chicken and chips bossman shop in my life it’s always the same people
Phone accessories shop to GP clinics
I think they have a financial support for these things which end up making them more money

You are too funny bro. What is the percentage of Nigerians that pay 40k for tuition abroad.
You see I work in the University here in the UK and I run an educationalconsultancy firm with clients in Nigeria. I know how the majority of parents who decide to train their children in the UK struggleto pay their tuition. Some of these children have to start working (even some work more than the 20 hours
tier 4 limit) to earn their livingin the UK.
You may call it theory, but it is not. I studied and work here in the UK sir. So whateverI tell you is with a benefit of hindsight.
I am sure those yiu said are trapped in the system arw either those who lost focused and got carried away on the UK or lived illegally here. There is no way you would have a right standing in the system and you would go through the scenaro you just painted.
quote author=adonainana post=106242032]
So when your kids become citizen and apply for free tuition
And you see the kids of your mates that you left in nigeria 30 years ago paying £40,000 a year for the same tuition your own kids are applying for free
And this people are paying in naira ooo what would be your reaction
Tbh just pray to your God bro because all this stats you are saying is easy in theory
Come to London and see very very poor Nigerian households maybe if they were moving as lawyers architects I won’t say much
But nurses for U.K. omo na war ooo
Even people on £35 k a year Dey fight the Uk system for success
You are busy using stats to defeat a system you can’t escape

You can’t use the experience of living in Hackney and London to advice people. Your experience isn’t enough.
I lived in Upton Park and Stratford, played football at Westham park near Plaistow, attended Ashimolowo’s KICC at Hackney…this was before the Olympics. I thought then that Uk started and ended in London.
I paid £500 for an en-suite accommodation during my uni days and later got a decent one room all inclusive at £350 till I graduated.
If you move up north, you can get a beautiful 2-3 bedroom accommodation at £500. No jokes….ask people working in places like Kendal, Morecambe or Grange over sands and Barrow-In-Furness. It’s the same salary scale but accommodation and cost of living is much cheaper.
Google FGH Barrow in Furness. There’s a sizeable population of Nigerians working there mainly Igbos and yorubas and they will always assist you if you are new.
Stop misinforming people. You claim to know or have somewhere you’d pay £260 per month but insist that accommodation is within the range of £800 and above. You are confused mister.
For anyone wanting to have an idea how much accommodation cost anywhere in the Uk….visit Spareroom dotcom and find out for yourself. Don’t let people fill your head with nonsense. Google and type in the postcode or town and see what it reveals.

Good morning NLs
We all claim our mothers soup is the sweetest till we taste the other.
First, A nurse in Nigeria can not be compared to a new nurse in UK. In career, finance, life expectancy, socio economic status etc..
Suddenly we remember the phrase paycheck to paycheck as if thats not the life of a regular Nigerian Nurse here in Nigeria..
Remember 25k yearly is for working about 37/38 hours per week.
We have 168 hours a week. If we divide it by 2 and assume we take a compulsory sleep of 84 hours per week (12hours each day)
you will be left with 84 hours to work p/w of which 37hrs is what your employer demands to meet up. This 37 hours could be just monday to Wednesday or Thursday..
What i am saying is . There is room for overtime and extra jobs.
Its about planning your time and living a low budget life..
If you are newly married, its easier to save.
I know of couples that completed their houses here in Nigeria within 5years of their stay.
jaxxy:If you ever get a chance to leave, please grab it with both hands. After all if our parents got this opportunity earlier most of us will not be reading nairaland thread.
Do it for your unborn kids
Get you kids a better life
Stay in a place where your chance of being killed or kidnapped by bandit is reduced.
Once you travel, the thoughts of Expectations from people in Nigeria will kill you faster than you think.

Tonytonex:That's if they have any to spare after all the bills
|Re: Six Nigerian Nurses Arrive At UK Hospital (Picture) by Raalsalghul: 9:34am On Sep 28|
If it is in this context, then you are very right.
|Re: Six Nigerian Nurses Arrive At UK Hospital (Picture) by jaxxy(m): 9:35am On Sep 28|
I don’t follow bandwagons. Bt it’s fine for those who want to.
|Re: Six Nigerian Nurses Arrive At UK Hospital (Picture) by Tonytonex(m): 9:36am On Sep 28|
anastasius:That's The problem with most Nigerians. When they travel out they don't see it as hustling. Don't go there to enjoy. Have a plan. Send money home and invest. The money can do more here.
|Re: Six Nigerian Nurses Arrive At UK Hospital (Picture) by Nobody: 9:36am On Sep 28|
adonainana:No where is perfect. Such people might not even live long if they were in Nigeria. It's left for you to make the best of your situation
|Re: Six Nigerian Nurses Arrive At UK Hospital (Picture) by Raalsalghul: 9:37am On Sep 28|
You are a very informed person.
|Re: Six Nigerian Nurses Arrive At UK Hospital (Picture) by adonainana: 9:38am On Sep 28|
So you go up north and you get the same jobs as you will get in London right
I hope it’s not osapa London you lived
Pastor ashimilowo church really
And when I said I know where I stay for 260 who told you it’s not a real place, the house has no heater and hot water but I stay there to save money
I don’t know why you pained good Accomodation costs money and you want a cheap good Accomodation in the Uk yet earn big money working near these places
I think you are the very confused one bro
So the people
Asking you think they don’t have internet on their phone before abi to check spare rooms
|Re: Six Nigerian Nurses Arrive At UK Hospital (Picture) by dadebayo1(m): 9:43am On Sep 28|
Oga read my post again and then quote the right person i beg.. You just wake up and quote messages like there is something else to it.. I never said anyone is inferior please... Learn to read and understand
|Re: Six Nigerian Nurses Arrive At UK Hospital (Picture) by adonainana: 9:44am On Sep 28|
But the guy that ran away from Nigeria 30 years can’t even afford to pay the same and has to apply for
Student finance England to help his kids pay
At least another parents are struggling to pay cos of naira tumbling
Some can’t even afford or even dare and they have been in the Uk for decades raising their kids there
Abeg who is meant to have the upper standing to pay
Come to ibeju and see local Nigerians buyingland and houses you will
Tell that to a Nigerian who ran from Nigeria 25 years ago land there is now 3 million naira per plot he will say he is not interested it get why now
You consultancy job pls
Stick to it and all the best, you can’t advice me on anything about hindsight
I repeat a lot are trapped in the Uk system and are only going a month on month basis
|Re: Six Nigerian Nurses Arrive At UK Hospital (Picture) by Calitoscassius(m): 9:45am On Sep 28|
adonainana:post offices, chemists, off licenses and corner shops.
I think they are just smarter and patience than us.
Even the Turks and these newer Eastern Europeans are running shops

Bastaed people who have spent most of their live abroad and got a foundation to live on will say its not roses over there after going there to bbring hundreds of millions to be able to live ok here in Nigeria..

COMPAQ:I know, but it's my earnest prayer though
|Re: Six Nigerian Nurses Arrive At UK Hospital (Picture) by SIRTee15: 9:56am On Sep 28|
adonainana:You just here talking theory.
I work in the system, I know how it works. There's agency, NHSP. Nurses can earn an avr 30 pounds/hour working for bank. besides they can choose to leave for us or canada after gaining confidence and skills.
dont come here spreading ignorance.
If u live in London and dont know any Nigerian architect or lawyer progressing in their careers, then we can conclude u have a deal with poverty. pls, dont infect others.
I live in sheffield and my circle of nigerian friends include doctors, lecturers, IT experts, nurses, project managers.
even the family who work as a carer and security guard has a hotel and 2 houses in nigeria.
u waste your resources living beyond your means in uk and u turn around to blame the system.
UK owe u nothing, if it didnt work for u, just go back home and see how easy it is to work legit and build house in lekki.
but dont come here and discourage nurses whose chance of a brighter life is better outside of nigeria.

How you take know?
|Re: Six Nigerian Nurses Arrive At UK Hospital (Picture) by 300wayne: 10:01am On Sep 28|
its a good thing you mentioned you are a professional and have lived in those countries
Do you know how many professionals in nigeria that can/are not practicing what they "professed" which is not by choice
Do you know how many profesionals have a passport talk more of hope of travelling out?
Do you know how many professionals pay tax from ther meager salary and yet there is nothing to show for the tax (we provide our own local security, we sink our own boreholes, we take agbo jedi when we fall sick, we fix our roads ourselves)
I would rather go to the UK practice what i "professed" pay my tax wchich i am obligated to and with so much trust in the government to provide me with basic and working infrastructure
|Re: Six Nigerian Nurses Arrive At UK Hospital (Picture) by buragidi(m): 10:02am On Sep 28|
Another error. People don't take education finance in UK because their parent cannot afford to pay school fees. You have got a lot to learn from the way the UK system works.
|Re: Six Nigerian Nurses Arrive At UK Hospital (Picture) by KosiGee: 10:02am On Sep 28|
What you see sir is the result of decades of hard work and investment.
It didn’t start today and it didn’t start in the last 20 years either. Indians for example have lived in the Uk for more than 100years, most of them settled in the Uk as well when Idi Amin chased them out of Uganda. These people have lived in the Uk for years…lots of them have ‘married’ their relatives to have them join them in the Uk.
They have operated shops, restaurants, fill their people ( illegal immigrants) there for decades….assisted these group of people through their ‘smart’ solicitors. Some learnt plumbing, roofing, joinery, apprentice in electricity and wiring….some jobs that our people rarely go into, cab driving. A group of people will buy a house at auction, make it over using their own people to reduce cost, buy a lot more and do same, open up local shops and force the white British corner shop owner to move and relocate. They have been collectively chipping at the system and ruthlessly taking opportunities.
I think our people have been too individualistic.
Our orientation is different. I don’t think we have employed the same method.
