Leave Nigeria If You Have The Opportunity To Do So – Joe Abah Advises Nigerian Youths


Dr Joe Abah, who was once the Director-General of Bureau of Public Sector Reform, has advised Nigeran youths to leave the country in their youthful age if they have the opportunity to do so.

Abah, disclosed this in a series of tweets he shared on social media.

He however, also advised those who want to return to Nigeria, to do so by choice.

He tweeted;

“Moving abroad the 1st time, I didn’t watch any in-flight movie. My eyes were firmly on the flight display. As soon as we left Nigeria, I made the sign of the Cross. When we left Africa, I whispered “Alleluia! If this plane does emergency landing now, it won’t be in Africa sha!”

“It’s true that when I got to the UK for the first time, I thought “Is this all?” However, I could see a clear path to how I could own a car, buy a house and build a career. I couldn’t see that path as a young man in Nigeria. I still don’t see it for many young Nigerians now”.

“In your youth, you should japa if you want to and have an opportunity to do so. Get the basics, like a car, a house, a 90-inch TV and a bad bad sound system. Build your CV there & show them you are a determined Naija person. If, later, you want to come back, it’ll be by choice”.
