BN TV: Is it Time to Move Back to Nigeria? Battabox Asks Nigerians Who Recently Moved Back




On this new episode of Battabox, Nigerians who moved back home from abroad were asked what their reasons are for moving back to the country.

Bursting with talent and intelligence, yet many of us leave our home to set up camp elsewhere. As a consequence Nigeria doesn’t fully benefit from the skills all our citizens possess.

So…Move Back To Nigeria was set up – to help Nigerians that want come back home but have no idea how to make the transition, find jobs and comfortably settle in to Naija society

At the Move Back To Nigeria (MBTN) and Young Nigeria MBA’s (YAM) networking event in Lagos,  Lolade of Battabox asks those at the events their reasons for moving back to the country.

“How important is it to invest in Nigeria?” Lolade asks.

“I think it’s very important…if you don’t invest in your country, who else is going to do it for you?” a young lady responds.

“I was born and raised in London,” a young man explains.

“And then you decided to come back home?” Lolade asks.

“Yes precisely,” he adds.

Do you think Nigerians in Diaspora should move back?

    As much as i really wanna move back. Nigeria is a very big challenge with all its problems which might make me go postal. That’s why I’m very skeptical because I am very allergic to all and any kind of bullcrap. Especially if you mess with my $$$, family or my rights. With all these said till whenever my mindset is right, then I’d move back.

    nigeria is a difficult place to live, but some of us who have been back for a while have gotten used to it and we love it, of course there are bad moments too. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere outside Nigeria (i lived in different parts of Europe for 10 years, Europe is the best continent ever, America is way overrated), however, a vacation outside Nigeria, at least once in a year helps. if you’re comfortable wherever you are, stay put.

      I have lived in countries in Europe and I currently live in the US and I disagree with your “America is way overrated “comment. In fact, London and Paris are extremely overrated to me (weather, cost of living, job opportunities, etc.) . But I guess it all depends on where you lived in the states. No where compares to Texas in my opinion.
