Diasporians Are Sad When They See Happy Nigerians: Why?

These group want everyone to believe Nigeria is a hell hole and a dump, but when they hear contrary things, their heart goes down. This is why they criticise without lifting a finger to contribute. How can we silence them?

Where is the fact behind this post? This is nothing but a useless warfront for more division amongst Nigerians.

I wonder why you didn't notice the absurdity and incongruity in some of your statements. Is this how your "brain" works?

A little while ago you thought I lived in Nigeria, now am "colo" because I said you're a sad parody of a black man who hates his birth country.

Am beginning to think by replying your  post I lend credence and undeserved gravitas to a ranting visa-less slowpoke seeking attention.

Your rant is diddly squat, it makes no f*cking sense.

How can people who wake up in the morning and start drinking beer and pepper soup like they do in nigeria not be happy?but at the long they cry because there is no way people can sustain a good living without working hard,you have to put in to take out.

Life is gravitational,it falls and shatters when it is not held.You have to hold on strong to carry on strong.

@ post

Even though youre foolish theres some truth in what you said. Seeing from the previous posts i gather some people think its a crime to be rich in Nigeria and actually enjoy.

buts its not everyone in the diaspora that thinks like that.

You guys at home are simply silly and envious, I got good news for you all, aint there nothing to be envious about. You all at home are doing just fine!, Taking America as an example, Living here is harder and anyone can imagine. You must work hard to smell the dream or you will be a dream chaser. And there isnt any easy work here in America, the system has been set-up that whatever field you find yourself only serious hard work can make u smell the dream. So when people say we are sad when Nigerians at home are happy, thats simply untrue and silly. If Nigerians (including our families) at home were happy and able to help themselves that takes off the extra burden of hardwork to support them off our backs and gives us hope that we can go back and invest our income no matter how small, and put and end to excess hours of hard work. Dont get me wrong we wanna work, but putting in excess hours of sleepless hard work is killing to the body.

Many of us miss home, the food, the people and some of us who married Americans truly miss Nigerian Women born and bread at home. Not the Jankara Nigerian women who came here and started acting like wannabes. Same goes for the Nigerian women here who misses home bread guys.

However one of the few things we enjoy apart from the facilities is security, not that there isnt crime here!, but I know that if I m killed or shot either by the police or any individual, it will be vigorously investigated and the person responsible will pay for it dearly. That tells me my life is not worthless.

I can speak for myself and I will tell you I dont like it here!!!!

So pls lets stop the fighting and work together for our common good.

Admit it I burst your bubble by letting you know I emigrated when you were in JSS 1. Why should I pour scorn on those I left behind because I was lucky to have left when I did?

If you morons think cleaning offices in the UK is an achievement wait till you return in 30yrs to find some of those you left behind CEO of multinationals.

you should ask them to get a job, any job no matter how "below them" it might seem.

Even if its only teaching.

There are far too many people back home waiting on handouts from their overseas relatives and not wanting any job that's not commensurate with their "status" eg oil company.

And of course lets not forget many are waiting and hoping for overseas visa which they're assured will come any day so why work in an "embarassing" job.

though i dont totally agree that these people 'feel sad when they see happy Nigerians', i feel they have a problem with being patriotic.

u would be amazed what these some of these diasporans say about Nigeria on the internet. it is okay to criticise the govt but these morons destroy anything nigerian. WHY?

BUT i appreciate the diasporans who take on the corrupt govt of the day through online blogging and demonstrations.

Waka,

You are absolutely right about that. In the land of milk and honey kidnapped by a few so that many can suffer to death. What is there to be happy about?We need to stop fooling ourselves, come together and get solutions by throwing out these few bums. You will see their children and PROs everywhere trying to maintain their status.

Petty jealousy wil get us nowhere.

You see the kind of utter nonsense people come and post online.

A guy comes online, says he's making money in Nigeria, and living on it, in the UK.

And he says he loves Nigeria?

Total crap. I wonder why people even bother to respond.

B4 coming on NL to spilt craps you would have sat for a min and ask yourself, how many other Nigerians have the same opportunity you are having? The opportunity of being in UK and living on the money from Nigerian. Probably your parents are bouyant enough to send you abroad where you eat boost of their investment , for you now Nigeria is the best. Have you thought of millions other Nigerians who cannot even afford to send their kids to school? Have you thought of millions of families who spent their last kobo to train their kids to university, only to remain unemployed at home, becoming more liability to the family while he was supposed to be an assets?

Like i said b4 keep living and enjoying your fools paradise, but when i complain abt Nigerian i complain bitterly becoz someone can not spend so much to train a graduate in country where he will still become a liability after graduation.

@posters and all his supporters

Before I go on, I would like to make it clear that I am a full blooded Nigerian though I hold a British passport. I am as patriotic as anyone living in Nigeria. We really need to use this forum as well as other similar fora to engage ourselves in meaningful discussion on how to make Nigeria a better place for all of us to live. Nobody is happy in deriding Nigeria or all our people living there; its only fools who will jump into conclusion rrhat by critising those in power and who are responsible for the precarious situation in which we are will condemn us for speaking the truth. Or perhaps the poster is one of those in power disguising as a nairalander. I have three of my siblings living in Nigeria, all graduates, all unemployed, and you are asking me not to rebuke the system that refused to do anything about their situation. I work 16 hours everyday to be able to cater for them and our ageing parents back home. If most Nigerians back home should be thinking like this poter, it means the psyche of the average Nigerian has been systematically destroyed by our political and religious elites.

I don't care where u live,u are not nothing but a dumb Bottom peasant.

There is a saying that goes this way in my place-Some nobles and their slaves were on a mission to a strange a land,before they left,the slaves begged the nobles not reveal their identities to their hosts as slaves and the nobles agreed.

On their way it pissed down heavily from heaven and they got wet,so on getting to their hosts place,instead of the slaves hanging their wet cloths on the line to dry like the nobles did,they chose to dry them on fire which inevitably revealed their identities to their hosts as slave because drying cloths with firewood is what slaves do.

You are what you are,not even the best educations and privileges in the world can change a miscreant.

Ask your moderator to tell you my IP address on NairaLand and use it to check where I am. And for your information, I dont have relations who sk me or who i ask to send me money - I live in the UK off my legitimate business in Nigeria - I get money to live on from Nigeria, from the investment we have made back home while you serve the white man, from what God has helped me to put on ground at home, I will never serve the white man like you do, they will serve me.

@ OP

The same you will call your relations abroad, if any and tell them how worst Nigerian has been jst to get a 100dollar or pounds from them. They are not in Nigerian, but you are. If you say Nigeria is good for you then goodluck. They all contribute to debate here on NL based on the news that come out of Nigeria everyday and the info they got from the people back home.

Tell me how i wont believe that Nigeria getting worst when i will spend so much sponsoring a younger one only to graduate and cant get employed after many years of youth service.

For you a country where 2nd class upper graduate of engineer still remain a burden to the family after many years of graduation and you claim tht country is getting better. You must be living in a fools paradise.

Give up da crack bro. People like you  made me post the above, your ignoramus Bottom thought I live in Nigeria so you can relay to me the beauty of London. Guess what nigga, I live in the UK  and if you'd bother to read my post you woulda noticed. Here it is again for your fragile mind to ponder.

"Nearly 20yrs of living abroad have not morphed me into what am not. We need to acknowledge, human beings built all these beautiful Western countries that we so love." 

PS

If there's anything you want to know about London for the past 20yrs your dumbass should ask me.

See! some of us left Nigeria but still harbor the belief of returning home when the mess your ilk put us in have been corrected.

What a fucckkin lie. You mean ourmate who wants to be like us when we land? The one that jealous that I wish I live in abroad too. how many time they deny you visa? All this mania jobs you people in Nigeria are talking about I do not see them. You need to travel out and see Nigeria professional from all respected fields. A graduate doctor in Nigeria travel out and never return. Have you people back in Nigeria never ask your self a question. White Americans and black Americans travel out of US and go to another country. Would you tell me that they are running away. people travel out all the time so I do see the big deal about Nigeria traveling out.

I have never advocated for any form of division.

However, the issue of Nigerians being insults by those living outside is a serious one and should be discouraged especially as many Nigerians living outside Nigeria seem to support this nonsense while others either kept silent or try to justify the insults.

Have you spoken out against these irresponsible insults directed at those of us that are in Nigeria? What is your position on these insults?

Remember that you can support or oppose something by not getting involved and at the same time not taking a stand.

All Nigerians are Nigerians so what is there to gain by dividing or quarreling amongst ourselves while the corrupt leaders continue to get away with murder even in broad daylight?

Devoid of patriotism,what are u talking about?it is you people that are looting,plundering,killing,burning and deceiving that are traitors not people that are pointing out the nightmares and trying to find solutions to the cataclysm.

The shame is for us all i know,but you people are the ones living it right now and we feel for you,most of us don't speak for our own sake but for the iniquities you guys are living in,it is not main to be.
