"Nigeria is one of the places to make easy money," he stated and gave a scenario of the requirements to set up a business in Dubai.

@travelandlifestyle.1 noted that while it is easy to start up a sachet water business in Nigeria, one would be required to get a license, which costs over N2 million, have a standard shop with CCTVs and other necessaries before doing such a business in Dubai.

While also noting that it is easier to start up a business in Nigeria, he maintained that the same cannot be said for the US or Dubai where the government has done everything for their people. In his words:

"Abroad is a place where the government has done everything for the people. There is no new opportunities."

Educational consultant speaks on the comparison

Ifeanyi Eze, a US-based educational consultant, said @travelandlifestyle.1's assertion is true in so many ways.

Ifeanyi, who spoke with Legit.ng on the matter, explained why. In his words:

"In so many ways, that’s true.
"To set up a business in Dubai, you need to spend about 20,000 Dirhams ($5,400) in registration and incorporation."

The young man, who had lived in Dubai, continued:

"You need to have clearance from Dubai Police, Civil Defence and install security CCTV in the shop.
"Although there is no tax, the high cost of entry deters many young small-scale businesses.
"To open a bank account in Dubai, you need to make a certain amount monthly. In some banks, you must have about 5,000 Dirhams.
"This is, however, not the same in Nigeria, where you can open a bank account on zero balance."

Interestingly, Nigeria beat France and the UK after its unemployment rate was regarded as the third best globally.
