A Nigerian residing abroad is of the opinion that children raised in Nigeria may not be able to have a fair fight in life.

The man identified as Stifler said he decided to leave Nigeria not because he was not succeeding, but because he wanted a better place to raise his children.

"At 26 I was working in Nigeria and had 3 cars . Bank account balance was okay but in my heart I knew my kids might not get that same luck or opportunities I had at a young age. That scared me so bad. Some of us left because we wanted our kids to have a fair fight in life."
