There's high cost of living everywhere, like recently in the US, the cost of gas moved from $2 to $5 per liter.

Just know this fact before thinking of travelling.

Don't be caught unaware.

We've had enough stranded Nigerians in the diaspora already. Don't add to it.

Have enough money SAVED before you think of travelling.

Like, money for divorce is just for therapy. After divorce, it's expected the man has to pay the woman so she can see a therapist.

So, who will now pay for the man's therapy?

Women are just weird. I still wonder why God created them out of our ribs instead of brain.

It can't be as bad over there as it is in Nigeria. Things will normalize overtime in US, can you say the same for Nigeria? If I have the means I will also japa, let's go and see what's up there first, nobody should discourage me abeg.

What is the point of this post? distract? discourage? You talked about rising inflation, but that seems to be a global trend, and not neccessarily unique to the US/west. Nigeria's is 15 percent while it's roughly half that in most western countries. Besides, inflation normally batter the poor most, and a in a country like Nigeria with nonexistent safety net it is even worst. Also, you seem to be ignorant of the fact that would-be emigres have diverse reasons for leaving, for some it is the security and safety western countries offer, while for others a good health care system and stability are major factors.

Rents varies from place to place in the USA

California,New York are high brow expensive areas,there are other American cities with cheaper cost of rent anyone japaing from Nigeria can stay.

As for gas prices I believe they will find a way out of it.

This thread, though a caution, is just a discouragement. But it can deter anyone who is determined to japa.

Our people don't know that there are more homeless blacks including Nigerians in New York than Lagos.. they see the beautiful parts of "developed" countries and then dream of going there to live a luxurious life only to end up disappointed.

Fix your home country and stop this 'japa' syndrome.
Go into processing of agricultural products and earn big from them instead of putting all your millions into visa processing to japa.

The problem with people is that they all want to go and jam-pack themselves in the US and Uk that are currently the worlds biggest problem, when there are better countries to go, work and live an ok life.

How do you want us to fix the country when we still have old and corrupt people lobbying for leadership positions?

First of, are you yourself in Nigeria presently?

They never want to live within their means. Go get a shared one room biko and not a condo if you no get money. In Canada here you will see a 9ja guy on 80k a year staying in a shared apartment but 9ja ladies on 50k staying in a top of the range condo. Is that not madness ni

Nigerians will travel to America or western world, leave their 3 bed apartment to live in combo apartment, the size of closet. the kind of house they will not stay in Nigeria. The reason is that the cost of this combo apartment per month is your one year 1 bed apartment rent in Nigeria inside life . Meanwhile, they will take pictures in front of skyscrapers building and post on social media

Bro did you read my comment very well?

Why would a cleaner be paying student loan?

In the United States, the average single worker faced a net average tax rate of 22.4% in 2020, In other words, in the United States the take-home pay of an average single worker, after tax and benefits, was 77.6% of their gross wage.

Now ask yourself how many Jobs dey Nigeria, how many pay benefits and how much is your purchasing power.

Na who get job dey get salary and people wey no get job full Nairaland.

Because your former classmates never start to they buzz you for urgent 2k abi? It's either you don't have them as friends or you are extremely stingy or broke.

Own what !!! Rented apartment !! Read well before commenting. The combo apartment also rented in US. At least they can afford that here but can’t in US or western, Meanwhile I know someone who own a duplex here in nigeria but currently in UK living in a combo apartment kind of size of your closet. Anyway he said he is studying Masters
This building pix behind the football training field in Paris has the kind of apartment I’m talking about and most people living there are migrants, saw it when I visited.

The index i gave was for minimum wage bro and you don't pay back student loan while studying.

Now how does paris and usa relate in this case? You did not read at all. The pictures posted by op was about usa and my analysis is based on that.

And size of my closet in uk Lol, bro i no get closet o. Na 2 bedroom flat i rent but na wardrobe i get ,i no get closet( i no be liar). Plus that your friend is either lying or keeping some secrets from you because there are many housing options in uk ranging from hostels to shared apartments, to even living with a friend till you get back on your feet (if you are lucky).

About the pictures are you sure that place is not for asylum seekers? Migrants is different from Migrants o. Because I have friends in France studying and we do video calls very well. Lastly that kind of house you call migrants house na vi and lekki we dey see that kind house for lagos o. And if you know how many people use loan apps to pay their house rent in Nigeria you go fear fear. My Landlord came to beg my neighbour last week and said he can go with the over 9 months that he is owing him.
