Isn't This A Total Waste ?

This is most common amongst Igbos.

Why does society still expect a man who has emigrated to the USA or Europe to build a befitting mansion in his hometown/village.

A home he'll only spend time in perhaps 3 weeks max once every couple of years.

A home he'll spend large amounts to erect, pay security men to guard and maintain and to add insult to injury he'll forever be replacing the amenities that have been stolen by robbers from time to time.

please what are your views.

why wouldn't a small, cheaper bungalow do afterall it's not your permanent abode.

is that why some people have to work themselves to death to build such a home when a smaller house will just do

But no,you have to build it to suit your "abroadian status"

u r right,but i believe its an individual thing,d igbos will say obodo oyibo aburo ebee obibi,ofu nbochi anyi nine ga na -meaning a whitemans land is not where we will live forever,we will all go home one day

so i think they build it incase of wenever they want to relocate,they have a place to lay their heads
