A Nigerian man with the Twitter handle @MRBRIKILA1 has recounted how his life changed for better when he left the country for Canada.
The man said he wrote IELTS three times before he achieved the required score, adding that he sat and passed the nursing exam at the first sitting.
In his words:
"Worked in a lot of hospitals and Nursing home...Bought my first house 3rd yr after got to Canada.....it was not easy for sure but the difference is clear clear..."
According to the man, there was a time he could not afford to raise N32k for IELTS despite working two jobs and driving a cab in Ikorodu area of Lagos.
He encouraged his followers not to allow people to discourage them, adding that it's important to leave the shores of the country for greener pastures.
"Do not allow them to deceive you...Can they love Nigeria more than those political office holders that earns millions monthly? I said b4,there is a thin line btwn PATRIOTISM and suffering and smiling...Pls go to any Country of ur choice it's very important to venture out..."
Nigerians took to the comment section of the post to share their thoughts.
A Twitter handle with the handle @rhamanlawal wrote:
"As Nigeria did not work for some people, it did work for others. While we all humbly find the place that works for us, remember not to curse the place that will work for others."
"He bought his first house in 3 years. That shouldn't be less than $300k. If he was a nurse in Nigeria he can't even afford that kind of house after working for 35 years with 90k salary. And someone will call me and say it's not greener out there. Agbaya everywhere."
In a previous report by Legit.ng a Nigerian lady identified as Mfon Abia took to social media to celebrate after being offered a job she did not apply for in the United States.
She said she got a call from The Academy, Miami, Florida, offering her a job and asking her to send her CV if she was interested.
"I am pleased to announce to this Honourable House that come Monday, August 3rd 2020, I will no longer be a jobless Nigerian youth and will resume at The Academy, Miami, Florida, USA."
