Japa: Why Isn’t Every Nigerian A Billionaire? by AllKnowing: 11:39pm On Mar 05, 2022
Japa if you have the opportunity!

A lot of deranged Nigerians will tell you not to leave the country and how easy it is for “an average Nigerian” to “make it” in Nigeria.

So why is Nigeria still the poverty capital of the world? Why are living conditions still so bad even in the capital city? Why is the rich-poor dichotomy as wide as the Atlantic Ocean?

Why isn’t 50% of the population made up of millionaires yet (legally acquired funds)?

With your sense, have you “made it” in Nigeria? Or you’re waiting for BAT to win so you can buy tokunbo Camry with hand-me-downs?

I just checked the World Poverty Clock and it says at current rate 2.9 Nigerians are falling into poverty per minute. Thus the country is far off track to crash poverty.

No mind those idiots. My own beef is with the Nigerians abroad blowing us Lamba of bills everytime. In the UK, people choose to be on benefits rather than work. Someone with 5 kids will get benefits of 800 pounds per week alongside free housing, healthcare and education and the idiot Nigerians there will come and be lying to us about bills everytime.

The Nigerians are the most wicked not even the ones in Nigeria


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4I5cy30-pQ

This is a benefits documentary on the UK. One woman gets 66000 pounds from the government. She hasn't worked in 6 years. She just sits at home and gets free money. New Zealand, Australian and Canadian citizens in the comment section were also talking about how good their own benefits are. The woman was even given a solid mansion house free of charge and yet those wicked Nigerians abroad will blow us Lamba and tell us how Nigeria is the best place to be a billionaire. How many naira millionaires dey Nigeria. Not even dollar millionaires. Nigerians who get up to one million naira. How many are they?

Bro, i always meet you in any thread that as to do with japa or poverty.
I can understand. E no easy.
With the situation in nigeria, even someone earning 500k will be struggling not to talk of less.
Funny enough, how many people are even earning 200k sef?
The problem we have in nigeria is that it is a third world country. Inother word, what applies in first world countries differ from here.
A 1st world country is developed, just go in and follow the system. Reason why it is good for graduates/white collar jobs.
Here, white collar jobs/employees/graduates will all struggle else many graduates tends to japa.
In my little life, i have seen more traders (food stuffs traders etc), business men make more money than graduates.

Guy eh. Nigeria has made me very pessimistic towards any form of relationship and childbearing. Omho the poverty and hardship that can befall a family man isn't the same as a single man o. Me as I am I can go to bed hungry I will even have six packs if I do it continuously but men I will commit suicide if my kids cry of hunger everyday. I fit run mad.

provided you date within your class, you shouldn't worry.
I know you earn above 1m per month so you should be looking for a lady earning atleast 500k to complement you.
That is how we roll in nigeria now

OP,

My thread explains it in-depth by explaining how being in Nigeria will not make someone a "billionaire" or "very rich".

If anyone is interested, I found some great profiles of diverse startups in Nigeria.

Search for "tv360" and "startup" on YT. There's a bunch of great footage.

Nigeria is kind of like America in that way. A person can be born poor af, and be a millionaire businessman just like that.
