is the house rent monthly? or you have to pay 5months advance?
it is on monthly basis. Let me explain it clearly to u.
Let's say ur house rent is 40k.
At first it will be mandately for u to pay 5 months rent at once.
2 months rent cushion ( money used to secure the rent. Anytime u want to pack out, the next tenant will pay back the money to u or u can easily hand over the room to someone else and he or she will settle u and will only be paying the monthly rent to the owner of the house
1 month is for agent fee.

The last 2 months will then be ur house rent.
U will continue paying monthly 40k as from the 3rd month.

U see, some of our brothers are hustling fine but most of their bills including house and shops rents which are being paid on monthly basis is their major problem

you sound like someone who is already regretting making that desperate move. Anyway may God help you find your feet son.
I'm not regretting. This country is a nice place.
These are OTs for newbies like me. I was told all these just for me to be careful. I've witnessed and seen a lot.
The best thing about this country is that money circulates a lot, which is good for a business environment

Ivorians are damn lazy.
I heard that they value females than males.
Their believe is that ladies can go make money with their bodies, but their men are efulefus.
Junkies in Yopougon, Abidjan alone is more than all the junkies in the whole of South Eastern Nigeria.
Smoking cigarettes is just normal. Most of their Secondary school boys are heavy smokers.
In this country, they don't sell handkerchiefs, they only use paper towels. (Servet) Spelling may not be correct.
Fighting attracts fine of 200,000 CFA (an Igbo man was fined after an Ivorian lady slapped him and he slapped back.
Someone can sue u if u insults him/her. I heard it attracts fine of 50,000 CFA or thereabout
Dem sabi call police or sue person to court for minor issues and na for this country dem dey charge person reach 20, 30 or even 40 years for prison.
Dem no dey use ear hear rape issues and I heard that some of our brothers are serving wasteful years in prison because of rape allegations

Greed and love of money. As a Nigerian person staying here, always be on a low-key. Don't be a show off, so you avoid unnecessary attention
a lot of Nigerians are serving in their prisons.
Some are false accusations via dealing with their ladies

True.... a lot of young Nigerian guys have been set up with these girls. One has to be careful while dealing with them. They can be all smiles, but when they come after you, even the devil would be shocked. Nigerian guys have suffered in jail and some who were lucky bailed themselves out with millions to avoid the long jail terms. Worst part is that they can even use a girl above 18 years to set you up. When they want to arrest you, they'll shave off the girls hair and make her appear like an underage, accusing you of seducing and molesting an underage girl and raping her. You may have to pay over a million CFAs as compensation to free yourself. One always has to be careful when dealing with these girls. Never take them to your house, always do your hook ups and meetings in bars, restaurants or hotels, that way they can never implicate you easily. Also, never let a girl you're dating know the amount of money you make from your job or business, or where you are saving your money. Always keep them guessing. Na sense dem dey take follow these people (do your love business with your brain, not your heart grin)
you said it all.
Are u around?

Very true. You can also see a woman of 37 years who is already a grandmother. She may have given birth to a daughter at the age of 16, and when that daughter grows up to the age of 15 or 16 too, the girl would give birth to a child too. Sex is like water here, and they readily have it with their fellow Ivoirien guys . If the girls sense that you're a Nigerian, the game changes
exactly bro.
Sex is cheap within their fellow countrymen.
Their people are into underaged sex so much but once they see a foreigner engaging in it with their girls and you didn't settle her well, they will charge u to court and one can be sentenced to 10years +
Mind u, 13 year old girl can be sexually active ooo

Sounds really smooth.

Where are the cheapest places to live in and what can I budget for like 3months of redundancy ( say one naira no dey come in at all) ?

Rent , food and basic expenses.
As I dey do, money never enter and I'm not expecting anything yet because I've not started hustling. There's how they collect their house rent. The thing is confusing. I'm sleeping at an Igbo man's shop for now. I'm still trying to figure out things as na new country. If I rush enter into any business, my money go fit burn away

Oga don't be scared o.
We just worked into their police station with our international passport for their residence permit for 2000 cf.
As for ID card from our embassy, our people are collecting like 7k to 10k which will be ready after 2 weeks.
One respected Igbo man collected 7k each from us.
Just be careful because some people are still running fake ID cards.

The border is partially open.I know a man that moves goods from Lagos to Ghana,he said if I am serious, the way I will run it is if I get to Ghana (20k),they will find a way to move you into Côte d'voire(5k).

We paid 15k each just to cross to Ivory coast side.
