What the hell are you talking about ... When people without basic knowledge talk u just know

Someone in the UK who earns minimum wage and work 40 hours a week would live a betterore quality life that someone earning 10 timed minimum wage in nigeria

Don't even want to mention US or Austria or Germany

One hour wage can buy food stuff than can feed you for two days

Someone on the minimum wage in the UK will have a better quality of life than a person earning 10 times the minimum wage in Nigeria?

why will they come back to a country where some people believe Nigeria belongs to them and their allies alone? People with a different or alternate views are summarily executed on the streets while protesting!!

Nigeria is where she is because the people themselves are nearly as wack as the clueless leaders!

Ah..

Its the herd psychology...

The leaders might seem dumb but they're well versed in the art of mass control, they know how to control the mass hence the wackos you see everywhere. Suffering yet smiling and hailing their oppressors..

Anyone earning minimum wage can't foot the bill of Japa. So let's take minimum wage story away.

Those that are miragrating (Japa) are the well to do and it cost millions and this people leave their jobs, sold houses etc and left when they get here depression set in as expectations are not achieved.

That's true bro. Just yesterday I was telling someone that in my village, there'd come a time when the whole place would be deserted because everyone Japa.

If the parents grow old and decide to return to die here, the children would never ever return.

The country is messed up no doubt, but thank God some people still can survive no matter what. Japa for good is not my thing and I don't advice it. You can do vacations and studies but to Japa for good leaving my family ties is something I can't do.

Don't advice people. Advice yourself. If I have someone like you as a friend, I will not hesitate to cut off from you. If you like live and die in Nigeria. Na you sabi. Not everyone wants to come back to this hell.

Hmmm. Yeah, many Nigerians are leaving the country to have a better life elsewhere. It's a normal human reactions to migrate to other settlements in search of a better life but not all Nigerians can migrate. The majority will have to stay behind and make the country better for themselves and their children. If they do turn things around, they get to enjoy the most because they would have positioned themselves in their own country and those Nigerians who migrated would find it very hard to come back and reintegrate back into their own country. It's our choice to make to salvage Nigeria or we japa to a foreign land that may later treat us like second class citizens tomorrow when the economy goes sour

Why do some of you lie so much?

Do you want to bet on it? Let's do the maths sir
National living wage in the UK is 11 pounds

If you work 50 hours per week that's 555 pounds 2200 pounds a month

Your tax
First 1000 pounds is untaxed
1200 taxed at 18%
So you get 2056 pounds monthly

Outside the big city you can rent a one bedroom flat for 700 pounds... Utility 400 pounds

U have 956 pounds left

Food can't get more than 200 pounds, transportation 200 pounds

This is more than just an exposé. Japa is not restricted to the poor people looking for survival alone, middle and high income earners are also involved now so they can have less years to take care of their children before they (their children) become independent to fend for themselves.
.

That's the part they will not tell you. Majority of graduates got their 1st job almost 5 years post Nysc. That 5 years would have been years of learning and bliss both the parents and the young graduate.

While food might be cheap rent are not cheap.
Infact you spend like 50% of your income on rent and bills alone every month.

Secondly not every one that Japa gets job most stay months with no jobs then how will the bill be paid

How many Nigerians are truly living fulfilled lives in Nigeria?!!

Over 60 Million Nigerians are either poor or one paycheck away from poverty!

Do you know what that means?!!

The only reason why many of you think Nigeria is favorable is because we literally operate a subsidised welfarist system that is not practical or tenable in a properly developed country.

If you find yourself in this situation one option will be to send your children to secondary school in Nigeria and plan to move back to Nigeria before they finish secondary school. This is why I personally don't see why people in there late 30s or 40s move abroad. If you move at 25 and return by age 40 when kids are still young you may have reaped the benefits of the japa and also be in a position to reap the benefits of japada

One of my PCTs moves in his early 40s with his wife and kids. He put his head down for 20+ years and worked like his future and his kids future depended on it. With his income which wasn’t amazing but enough, his kids finished school. Actually, one of his daughters is my age and my colleague now. He’s been able to build several rental properties back in his home state after his kids became established.

Now he just works because he doesn’t like to be idle but he’s retiring in a year or two and he’ll just sit at home collecting his pension from this massive employer who will NEVER owe him unpaid pension. He will never have to carry placard to protest unpaid arrears. Like some of our retired older parents do in Nigeria.

Even if he didn’t work for an employer that’ll pay him pension for the rest of his life, his rental properties might be enough to make sure he doesn’t starve like some aged retirees who have nothing to fall back on.

But because he didn’t feel too high and mighty to be a PCT in his 40s, he can retire to Nigeria and earn his pension in dollars. I’m just saying don’t discourage anyone. There’s no timeline in life.

Exactly my thoughts too. In the early 2000s, jaa was a means of setting up people who had failed in Nigeria, in 2022-2024 japa is for those who have succeeded in Nigeria and planning for the generations, both and unborn to leave where they succeeded and go learn in another man's land. Nigeria, we hail thee. A set of people am trying to understand

Poor people can’t even japa. It’s upwards of 15-20 million to do so. Is that the definition of poor in Nigeria?

Poor people are stuck and it’s unfortunate

Of course poor people have been doing japa for a long time. Some go through land, like Libya.

I speak from experience. Last week we had to contribute money to someon who sold everything and got here.
Children no food, house rent etc no de.

This is someone in a managerial position back in Nigeria. He has developed high blood pressure.

The hurrible shift jobs I do, I won't do that in Nigeria. But we have to encourage our self and move on.

Let me break it down to u... Can u stand 12hours cleaning with just 15 minutes break all night. Or all day. That's you won't sit down. Sitting down your supervisor will report as u are unfit for the job. And this job no de come always


See Japa no easy oh

As I de type now I de go shift go work under cold and will do the job. Standing all through under minus degree.

You are correct but the most concerning of your deepest concern should be the entrenched system that does not allow the people to breathe ....these people want to live...they want options...so long as we refuse to fix our Country or continue to select cold hearted criminals, incompetent, wreckless and insensitive people into office, we will continue to squeeze people who are "pushed to the wall" out of the Country 🙄
