Nigerians on Twitter react

@Chynanu commented:

"If you're at a certain level of comfort, living in Nigeria (God forbid there's an emergency) is way better than living abroad. The problem is, getting to that level is seemingly impossible to young Nigerians who don't have connects/godfathers. This is why they leave in droves."

@davidfatunmbi commented:

"One of my older friends who has a home in London left the UK to Lagos earlier this year because, according to her, the costs of living were likely to keep getting worse in the UK and that she could cope better in Nigeria. It looks like she saw the future."

@otega_el added:

"Nigerians should learn that sometimes tweets like this are not to discourage you. Come if you want to still come. Regardless of what the UK is going through it is still better than 9ja in terms of living conditions. But don’t let anybody sell you fairytales about the country!"
