Travel / Re: Nigerians Who Left America And Moved Back To Nigeria, Do You Regret It? by GetMeRight: 5:03pm On Feb 17
Newboss:


They all have permanent residency abroad, not just residence. If you have residency abroad, you're AUTOMATICALLY on those countries' tax book. So they don't care about taxes. They have lawyers that handle their taxes.

Bro, there is no real difference between the rich and the poor. They're just normal people like you and me. Multiply your lifestyle by thousands, and you'll come close to the lifestyle of the super rich.

You're only going and coming because you can't afford the expenses involved in living there continuously and because you have businesses to attend to here. These guys have set up money making machines. They're literally as free as the air, financially.

They don't live here. They only work here. The only thing that brings them here is their business, family and friends.
Rebuke:

What?! Bros, please just shut this crap yhu are typing here.

How many rich Nigerians do yhu even know and where do yhu live that yhu are running yhur mouth?

Let me ask you? Why would these people who have most of their investments and family in Nigeria be living permanently abroad? Is it because of the extreme weather conditions over there? Or the kind of loneliness that would be following them everywhere? In abroad, they're nobody which nobody gives shiit about but in Nigeria, they're Kings who attract attention everywhere and everyday. They have no reason whatsoever to stay abroad, just vacation and nothing more.
It is the poor that worship abroad because they believe menial jobs that they struggle for in Nigeria are plentifully available for them over there. The rich just go and come back

My cousin did. After the death of his parents, an aunt sent him to the US in 2019. In 2021, this dude returned to Naija citing one useless excuse that I can't understand. Like he literally bought ticket and boarded a plane himself from New York to Lagos before returning to the villa to the surprise of his siblings. Till now, everyone is still in shock. He lives in the villa currently doing nothing and surving from the little investment his elder bro is handling.

This dude in question is not a hard guy that will get himself in a drug related problem nor is he a womanizer or a troublesome person. And he has no plans on going back sincerely. Even if he did, I doubt anyone will make that mistake of funding his trip.

That's probably because he had seen it all. What is there other than working your ass off. But here, he's living in the villa feeding off his parents/brother investments.

Tbh there's a lot of opportunities in Nigeria. Just break even first.

You are right. In 2013, my wife and I won USA visa lottery but forfeited it because we couldn't raise the money needed. In 2016, I was working at Dangote company for paltry sum of 57k a month, an exhausting job for that matter! He still went ahead to sack all of us after 5-7 months.
Today, my monthly income has hit 900k. Though, like two third of it is still going into loan servicing but things are looking brighter each day.

I have not been able to forgive myself of all the things I did to her, the insults, talking down on her but in a way I think I pushed her to become who she is now. I remembered when she asked back then to open a joint account with her, I laughed her to scorn, like how would the ratio be. she saved over 6M and credited my account with everything, just for us to complete our home. I can't even produce 1M.

She doesn't seem hurt, but sometimes she reminds me of those words, I have never officially told her sorry neither have I really changed because I am just like that, I don't mean evil. I wanted her to braze up and never stay low.

Married, men, please how do I ask for her forgiveness? I don't think we have up to 2% of her type out there.


You still owe her an apology, sincerely speaking. You won't die if you apologise to her and it is not sign of weakness, it will only show your strength.

SportsHD:

Those cops are bastards. Please don't return the phone. It's an Android phone, once you flash it and erase the information, it can't never be tracked. He used 3k to give away his phone.
Even iphone 13 wey we pay 40k for to track, the police couldn't track it, not to talk of useless android.

Just dump his sim into the nearest river or dusbin.

If you try and return it, he can rope you and arrest you. Person wey wan extort you for nothing before. He would now have all the power to arrest you if you dare return that phone.

He probably siezed it from an innocent who couldn't pay his bail on something the innocent didn't do.

Then, sell the phone off or you can start using it. You are safe.

By the way, check if he has a Facebook page, I'll dm you now. I need his Facebook name/details/contact information and where he stays.
Most of those bagas put that on their Facebook page.

Most of the people that are telling you to return it haven't been extorted by the police before, they don't know what it's like to be accused and robbed for something you didn't do.

Dumb, very dumb assertion

�. I understand what you mean. 2 days ago I was at work, with the cold and crazy Job. I thought to myself, If I had a good Job in Naija nothing will make me come and stress myself like this in the name of hustle. I'm quite new though, I believe with time I'll get to enjoy the good sides too. Right now, the beautiful environment and 24/7 Light mean nothing to me anymore. The hustle is draining.

My two Nigerian female neighbors keep on complaining. Every single time they're in a conversation, it's about how they're tired, how they want to go back... Etc. But for their children they can't do that. Infact that's almost all what they talk about Everytime.

So I understand those who said it's not all rosy abroad. I also understand those who are really striving to travel out. Sometimes I feel Nigeria is better, the cruise, friends, fun, sun, etc. But then I remember Police, bribery and corruption (I hate this with passion) the joblessness, etc. Then I'll reconsider.

Thing is nowhere has it all.

What a beautiful unbiased contribution! God bless your hustle.
I won American Visa lottery back in 2013 alongside my wife and a daughter. We couldn't raise the money needed, so we let the opportunity slide. Today if that same visa is given to me, I will reject it. May be I will sponsor my kids abroad for education to compensate what we lost but I'm much better and happier in Naija for now. So no need to go and suffer myself anymore.

Since you enjoy 24/7 electricity, does everyone in the city or state enjoy same. Why are we selfish as a people? How can people be taking pride in selfishness? You and your friend enjoy 24/7 light, others can go to hell and you are happy about it. May God forgive all of you in Nigeria.

All he told you was that you don't need to get to USA or Canada to enjoy regular electricity. Even in abroad, those services don't come cheap, you still need to able to afford it before you can have access. Either in Nigeria or abroad, you need to be able to afford it. I don't see where the word selfishness was coming from. There are many homes in Nigeria that couldn't even afford electricity bills. So, what are we arguing about?

If in the court of God and the court of Nigeria, all you've ever done wrong were unearthed now, where would you be? How many in the board of JAMB are without any wrongdoing ever? The morality is nobody caught or arrested him but he came public to confess his misdeed.

What is the common sense in jumping at that and say, hey, we want you wretchedly battered before we accept your apology? Is that so wonderfully helpful? The essence of the law of any country is not to trap, take advantage of openness or kill but to encourage people to do the right things. Or why does a court of law show clemency when an offender pleads guilty? Even if justice will prevail, the offender's honest remorsefulness is taken into account.

Boko Haram and Fulani terrorists who don't show true repentance are pardoned and pampered by your president after they have killed, wasted so many families and contributed to Nigeria's economic retrogression and international bad image though their innocent victims are never so taken care of. Those in the JAMB board have one or two known faces, maybe even relations, in their communities or states who are pardoned terrorists, have they handed them over to be killed according to the law for their crimes? You think if JAMB takes him to court, he will lose all his certificates which are not proved to have been fraudulently obtained though he cheated during the JAMB entrance exam? I think the best will be taking him to court so that we see what comes out of it.

i think the main issue here is that you prepare for appointments late,prefer to trekk distances that you should've either entered a bus or used a bike, and don't tackle your tasks on time until it gets to the agreed date (this is common among artisans in this country. it's like you all are in the same whastapp group).

stop over trekking,
prepare for appointments on time,
try to finish your tasks before the agreed date.

these will help you to have a relaxed body and mind.

Forget all the "I don't want to come back empty-handed". Life is better abroad. Things work. You pay for light and it is constant. In Nigeria, you pay for light and still buy fuel for generator. Or is it the bad roads or terrible education sector?

Cold or no cold, the quality of life is better abroad.

Hello Nairalanders,

So straight to the point. Please I need your advice about two things.

1. I just got my inheritance and I got cash of 8M and there's this popular belief of people squandering their inheritance,I don't want that to be my portion so which business can I invest it into. For context, I currently have a job and I'm not ready to quit so please put that into consideration.

2. My younger brother is still a student so he has asked me to save his portion of 6M in bank until he graduates but I don't think that's a good idea. I would rather he put it in some form of secure investment that will be yielding something. Kindly give us suggestions.

May the soul of my beloved Father continue to rest in peace. Amen

Whatever you do, stay away from online investments like crypto, forex, digital agriculture or networking.
And don't part with your money, don't give your money and that of your brother to anyone to manage on your behalf.
