The outflow of Nigerians to other more developed countries in search of jobs, quality education, better living standards and more has for several decades, caused a “brain drain” in the economy. Following the economic recession in most countries such as the United Kingdom where lots of Nigerians relocated to, there has been a shift in the trend as many Nigerians returned back home.
The question Battabox is asking this time is – What do Nigerians who have remained in the country think about their return? Are those returning home helping or hurting the country?
They went to the streets to seek the opinion of Nigerians and came up with a range of responses. While some people think they impact positively on the Nigerian culture and economy, others think their return is rather harmful to the economy.
Watch the video below and tell us what you think. Are Nigerians returning from the US, UK helping or hurting Nigeria?
