Investment / Living In Nigeria? You Can Legally Own A UK Rental Property. by londoner: 2:49pm On May 10
Hi All,

With the current exchange rate it makes sense to take on ventures that offer passive income in Pound sterling.
Not many mortgage companies offer to Nigerians living in Nigeria, but I have a few contacts that do.

If you or anyone you know back home are interested, drop me a message for more information.

Thanks.

Nigeria will be claiming Anthony Joshua that isn't even
fighting as a Nigerian. Ever since the guy defeated the
aging Klishko the whole country hasn't failed to
support him for once but they let Samuel Peter that
grew up in Nigeria, worked here, trained here nd became a champion
here b4 conquering the world to fight with no support.
Maybe his crime was that he didn't bear a Yoruba,
Hausa nor Igbo name. My advice is learn to appreciate
those that have put in their best to contribute to the
development of this country b4 those ones that don't
even wanna be regarded as citizens of this damn
country. I wish u all the best, Anthony.

Please research before you make a mistake in your perception. Anthony Joshua's first country he wanted to represent was actually Nigeria, not Britain. Nigeria, as usual, rejected him. He was trained and invested into by the UK and now Nigeria wants to reap where they did not sow.

Buhari insulted the youth openly and that same youth awarded him with yet another term in office.

I wish more people both men and women would actually prepare themselves to build a home and family by working on the best version of themselves. Don Jazzy is speaking like a wise man. This is how you have a long marriage and not just one that ends up being the next gossip because it failed both miserably and publicly.

that's what I plan to do. I don't see many of any men especially black Americans making videos on moving or living in Nigeria.

Nigerians are yet to actually market themselves or extend a hand to those who are away from home because of the slave trade.

This is what Ghana and a few other countries have done and rightly so. That is why so many people feel they won't be welcomed by Nigerians because they don't see the same move towards them from Nigerian leaders.

That's what I thought but eventually, I'd like to go to the rural areas or at the very least visit the traditional festivals. It's the culture I want to see. I would think Lagos would be a good pivot point to the see the rest of the country (evidently except the North) and the Continent as a hole.

As you realise the culture is in the village and not really the city so you DEFINITELY need to go with someone who will take you because generally, the village is ancestral. You need a bring in.

You sound kind of like Dynast you know.

I'm not too familiar with Calabar but my good friend did also highly recommence Abuja as well. The property are also cheaper there than Lagos but not as much as Ibadan.

You are likely to come across a wider variety of Nigerians from many tribes in either Lagos or Abuja though. Property prices depend on the type of area you are in though.

Hello everyone since this is my first post I'll make this as concise as I can. I am a 30 year old Haitian American who is planning to visit Nigeria for the first time within the next 12 months. Since I do not want to bore anybody here with any Afrocentric rhetoric I would just say that I'm visiting to see the culture of my ancestors. Some of you may be aware of the president of Ghana declaring this year the right to abode. Although there is a large African American community in Ghana, Nigeria as always peaked my interest.

There is a brother on YouTube named Search for Uhuru who frequently visits various countries throughout the continent and it seems that Nigeria is his favorite if I remember correctly. Needless to say that has pushed my interest over the edge. That being said I would like to be in the continent for at least one year and in Nigeria for at least three months. I am an AC mechanic who is also going to University to study mechanical engineering so I hope that in the future instead of spewing old rhetoric I can actually do something conducive for the continent as a whole and for Nigeria specifically among other West African countries.

Since I hope to be in Nigeria for some time I have begin looking for rental properties. Specifically studios or mini flats. Since the air conditioning season is going to start soon in the state of Florida I will be busy for at least 6 months and hopefully I can save at least 6 months rent for this trip. I'm going to presume depending on where I stay the US dollar will take me far. That said I do not plan to live a absolutely lavish style but I am looking for recently built housing specifically within the last 2 years. I have been looking in cities in Lagos Abuja and ibadan. Since I don't have a family I would like to be in a city with a decent nightlife. To be honest I want to be in a city with a great nightlife. But as someone who sees himself as a pan African I do not want to be sidetracked and hopefully can get into productive are conducive social circles. I would also like to volunteer my time in anywhere my skills knowledge and intelligence would be deemed useful.

Any comments suggestions or recommendations or highly appreciated. I do wish I spoke Yoruba or Igbo fluently but I guess that will come with time. I don't want to make this longer then I already have so thank you for attention.



What a beautiful journey you are on. It's good to come home to your roots but the whole continent is yours and I generally see Haitan people as African because you really kept a lot of the culture. If you visit Lagos maybe go with someone you know personally or people that have money because sadly so many people are desperate around people that have more money than them. I also watch Search for Uhuru's videos but like him, you should take short trips instead of staying a whole year or even 6 months at a time. Reach out to him for contacts he may help you. You'll enjoy Lagos but not unless you know people that know the good spots you may not like it and it can be very stressful on vacation let alone for 1 year. Depending on when you travel, Calabar is also nice but my favourite place in Nigeria is Abuja, hands down. I travel there alone and I'm a woman with no family there. If you go to Abuja I can give you a list of places to visit and the safe areas to stay in for you. Admittedly it's not as lively or crowded as Lagos though but you can base yourself there and visit Lagos, it is only an hours flight between the two. You will for sure enjoy Lagos but you will appreciate Abuja.

I'm really proud of you for what you are doing.

Bloooody:
When will Nigerians realize it's not by age but by the heart of the person?
The US president is more than 60 years old but the country is booming.
Age doesn't matter but the man himself

You need to keep up to date with current affairs in America. People are trying to kick the president out because of how incompetent he is proving to be.

The American economy relies on it's systems not on person in the president. There is a whole machinery keeping the economy afloat.

The people who are going to make real change are those with new and innovative ideas not the old recycled mentality that has consistently and deliberately refused to actually build and maintain systems that work.

The people you keep voting in benefit the most from the worst version of Nigeria. You keep giving them chances to fail you though just like you did with the recent election.

The truth right there. Nigerians are always absolving their own responsibility to build Nigeria and to demand better. The types of things that happen in Nigeria could never happen in most African countries because the people of those countries are actually far more courageous. Nigerians have stewarded a system that fails them again and again. Did they not fill stadiums and shout slogans for BOTH PDP and APC before today? Did they not collect their bribes from both as recently as last week?

Who are they kidding?

A vote for a better Nigeria is a vote for AAC and today that is clearer than ever.

Sowore for President.

Not only do PDP and APC despise Nigerians but they have zero respect for them.

I have never in my life seen a president that bad mouths his own citizens abroad as much as Buhari does.

In Nigeria, he does not as much as say "pim" to Nigerians but let him get on a plane he has all sorts of bad things to say about Nigerians both at home and abroad.

More than that he has gone to the people whose votes he is asking for in 33 states across Nigeria, the others don't seem to hold the average Nigerian in high enough regard to do the same. It's only people invited to places like the Hilton for this debate that get to be in the same room. Sowore goes to the market women, police men, IDP camps the ordinary person in the street and also the royalty.

Sowore is really for the people, the majority of the people that the rest of them there are forgetting, but want their votes.

It's a certain type of family/community belief in family and community "honour". It's not all muslims though but even without that they are likely to not support their daughter being with a black boy.

My Tunisian friend (female) stopped wearing hijab because she got tired. She is in Tunisia right now and no one is complaining about her non-hijabi. She is even looking for an English man to marry. Lol

My friend, honour based violence is a serious issue in the UK and there is even a helpline for it as well a number of projects.Tunisia has never really been an extreme muslim country and I have also been there on holiday. It does not mean every single family has the view but its a serious issue that is getting worse by the year. I work with young people and go into schools in every London borough. This has even directly effected some young people my organisation works with. The UK is not an extremist muslim country but many communities and families have extreme muslim views on family honour which are defended fiercely.

Buhari was former head of state

Atiku former vp

you know how many freedom fighters in Nigeria has even sowore done up to the level of chief Gani

pls be realistic



So did Atiku or Buhari start as rep, senator or governor, before becoming Vice President (second to the President) or the equivalent of President in being head of state under the military regime?

A simple yes or no will suffice.
