Nigeria: Nigerians abroad do not need to go home!

Omodudu does not think that Nigerians living abroad need to go back home,”Often we hear Nigerians living abroad declare, “I am going home”. I have news for all of you, Nigeria is not in dire need of your presence, actually you may be adding to the problem of overcrowding on the streets of Lagos. Nigeria needs your productivity more than anything else. If you have nothing to offer besides competing with the individuals at home for the already overstaffed service sector jobs, please sit your butt down wherever you are and pay your mortgage LOL.”


  • I am suggesting the Africans in diaspora ought to engage in an alternative strategy with respect to the brain drain phenonmenon. Africans should surely go back home, but how?

  • habideen folly

    Nigeria needs to be re-structure,how can a matured man be living like a refugee in his own ,our leaders must be punish for slaving us.that is my comment.

  • To all Nigerians in the diaspora: DON’T come back home, the system does not work and cannot change. It will only pull you down
