A Nigerian man has caused a stir on social media after disclosing that his cousin bought a duplex in Canada five months after relocating with his family.
@uchennapaul took to the comment section a lady's post on Twitter to make the disclosure, saying his cousin's wife earned N25k as a private school teacher despite having masters, but now earns over N800k as a lecturer in Canada.
In his words:
"My cousin moved to Canada with his family July last year. They bought a 5 bed room Duplex within 5 months. His wife with an MSC was earning 25k as a private school Teacher in Nigeria, now a Lecturer and earns over 800,000 naira monthly in Canada. I know God will do it for me too."
Tweeps flooded the comment section to share their thoughts as some noted that there was no way his cousin could have bought a house within five months except with mortgage.
"It's not possible to buy a duplex within 6months in Canada ....as if you don't pay tax and bills in Canada. Something fish is goin on."
"Don’t be deceived the flat they bought is on mortgage and will probably take away 3/4 of the salary for the next 25-30 years before its paid up if its ever paid up due to regular remortgages. It is good to go abroad but it can become a final destination except for grace of God."
"There’s easy opportunity for loans to own a house and its the best but There’s always a catch somewhere in the deal except you get the support of very experienced people. If you plan to return within 10 years don’t get it and don’t have children young. Is that an option?"
In similar news, a Nigerian man with the Twitter handle @MRBRIKILA1 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..."
