I shop in Lidl and what was posted by OP is true o. Only thing i dont buy is the chicken and onions as I get them from proper Al-Halal shops run by Arabs which are cheaper. The spaghetti I bought last (May 2023) - I got 6 packs and paid 0.30p each then so e don even cost. Pls just go to Lidl store online on Google and check for yourself. I have attached straight from their app for you to comfirm and these are their current leaflet.

The best part is that when you have a clubcard (loyalty card which is free), you even get some discount more at the till!

Not everything that seems too good to be true to you, is now a blatant lie.



But are you earning that every HOUR? This analysis is easy to grasp bro. In UK, that's lower than minimum wage per hour. And most work between 20 to 40 hours per week. Now please, do the math.
I think that's what the OP has been trying to state.
which one loyalty card?

You pay and get the value. Don’t you pay tax here, direct and indirect? Are you joking? Don’t you buy prepaid electricity and no supply for u to use it? How about water supply, motorable roads, security and safety? It is like our lawless country has really dealt with us that we see all these ills as normal and we should continue to suffer/smile

It doesn't make sense if you can't afford it. Do you think it's easy to make 1000 pounds every month over there. It is foolish to spend more than what you earn all in the name paying mandatory bills

Almost same amount when converted to naira, Nigerians are paying here for clothes if not more.

Okrika price has increased in Nigeria. Infact This UK okrika can pass as stock originals you see in super markets in Nigeria! You hear something like 10k, 15k, 20 grin

Lots of things are very cheap in uk. The joy is you can get the expensive yet very good ones in charity shops if you know your onions. So you can literally furnish your house like a big man from charity shops. Some of the things there haven't been used but they are obeying the law of the land.
Also the so called bills are okay unless you are illegal who don't have a good job.
And you can still save a lot.

The problem with Nigerian is when they travel abroad, they want to show they have hammered and go on speedy credits. Big car,big mortgage,big everything all on credit. And then blame govt.
UK govt subsidised almost everything for her people cos they do not run capitalist economy.
Health is free. We don't add that at all.
We see that as our right. Very ungrateful people we are.

Even schooling. Govt is virtually sponsoring you in uni if you meet the requirement.

We are never satisfied.
Next April, an increment in minimum wage. How many times has Nigerian govt done that?


Thank you for this.
The "I have arrived" mentality of our people is what put most in trouble

The difference is that everyone can afford that in the UK why you are talking about job that is only accessible to 1 percent of the population.

Not everybody really, that is what they don't tell you to succeed in the US, UK and Canada, I believe you must have a skill set either in healthcare or technology or at least have the funds to acquire these skills while you are over there, any other labour is slave labour were you will work pay bills and return home empty handed.

What people will not tell you is that many Nigerians just go there to survive and in 10 to 15 years they will till have nothing to show apart from their freshness, no house, no family nothing.

No doubt naija is a shit hole depending on the way you are seeing it.

If you have a good business running here, relocating would be difficult but if you are a salary earner, relocating is a perfect option.

The salary earner will only continue his struggle in a better and organized environment.

Abroad life no easy oooo. I have tasted both worlds and I can boldly tell you that it is not as easy as the way abroad people are potraying it oooo. Only few will tell you the truth.

We are talking about minimum wage job where almost everyone have the potential to do and not skilled job requiring a certain advanced skill set.

The struggles you talk about is different from having ability to earn minimum wage , how the person squanders it isn't a point of discussion but the ability to earn a minimum wage is available to all and Sundry.

The person you are quoting is probably earning above 200k. He is not a min wage worker

You be witch!!

How you take know say I no be Minimum wage worker?
