Shut up - u are so dumb - go to University of Edinurgh - u will find out what I am talking - did I mention I schooled in Nigeria? Also go to Shell and confirm - can u even get it? It is for people first class first degree only that can get it.

You were bragging about going abroad to school and hence other who don't do that end up getting crappy jobs -

Men you're so sick - in short - no more word with u - telling you my topic and thesis will be descending so low.

No more word with u. Bingo.

You make so much irrelevant noise. Unless you want to pretend, this forum has largely survived the last two yrs solely because of the contributions of Nigerians based abroad and not you 2 post hypocrites coming here to pretend like you love your country while trooping to the travel section begging for a way out of your misery.

We identify with Nigeria because we are Nigerians. That we live elsewhere does not suddenly strip us of our identity considering a lot of us still have family living among you. I see it as much more than hypocrisy when people like you make so much noise here only to end up at the US embassy to queue for a visa!

You know what loser, I don't normally talk back at people, especially on a public forum. But since you're trying to display your stupidity for all to see, I'm gonna ask you to kiss my skinny black Bottom!

Just take a look at your statement and tell me which of us sound silly. If you are mad that you got your silly PhD (that's if you even had a 1st degree) in some crappy institution, you shouldn't blame me when I say I love school and my major. If you got a PhD, what was your dissertation or thesis on? I know for sure that PhD's can be bought in Nigeria, how am I sure that you didn't buy yours? You haven't displayed any form or level of knowledge on this forum for one to even have an inkling that you spent a semester in a university, how much more a PhD.

for someone with an alleged phd you certainly have emotional issues. you keep trumpeting that you finished with a shell scholarship and live in the UK? So? And you come on spewing venom at those who you accuse of looking down on others for living abroad? When your own 2 posts clearly drip with venom, unecessary arrogance and stupidity.

hmmm- one day one day Nigeria will become a better place - but come to think of it - if u are Nigerian, and you think nothing works in Nigeria,and Nigeria is such a bad place, then why are you still identifying with Nigeria or anything nigerian? especially by coming to this forum? me see that as hypocrisy -

well - as someone said -threads usually gets overtaken by so called over sabis. -

I live in the UK - so dont even shoot - just zip the opening called your mouth. This is waht we are saying - u are not anything better because u live abroad or because u study abroad -

Have u seen when the been tos go to Nigeria and look down on every body they come accross as if they are not somebody? Just because u went to Europe or America or worse still Asia?

Yeah, I honestly didn't remember that today was Sunday. When you said Sunday evening, I was like, damn! what's this girl saying, it's Saturday here. I wish it would rain here though (but that would just make the lawn grow a Lil' bit faster. . . which I hate).

Anyway, regarding those losers, I don't think I got time for them anymore, most are just hating.

And that class thing is even worse in Nigeria.

Can a woman report to police that the husband beat her?

can a house girl go to police because her oga Molested her.

Even barrow pushers are they not "men of god"

The megard that salutes you at the gate? is that what is making you happy. is he not a human?

You call it class to treat people with less than you like trash

Hey Mamaput, your daughter is very pretty.

Dont bother wasting your time with these people, they don't seem to be happy when someone is trying to progress in their life.

To all those haters, if your happy living in Nigeria then good for you, but what gives you the right to say people in diaspora are worse off than you.

I agree that there are good things about living in Nigeria, but for me, i believe that the advantages of living abroad far outweights the advantages of living in Nigeria.

The truth is, I believe most people are bitter because they move abroad and fail to take the oppportunity to make a better living for themselves or that those they know who live abroad fail to do what they ought to do. If one moves abroad and fails to go to school or engage their skills meaningfully, they are definitely going to be menial jobbers all their lives! As long as you are a professional (which there are many Nigerians), you are going to be respected and hallowed in your field irrespective of color, accent, or nationality. Is there racism? Hell yeah! Is there tribalism in Nigeria? Hell-to-da-yeah! So, wherever one goes, there are life crises that they are going to face, but managing them and making the best use of the resources they have available to them separarte the menial jobbers from the professionals. Would I rather live abroad (not just some crappy country) or live in Nigeria? Honestly, with the current situation of things in Nigeria, I WOULD DEFINITELY CHOOSE TO LIVE ABROAD. Period.

Where else can u be a first class citizen if not in your own country?

Even the black Americans or Balck British still grapple with identity crisis, these are people with names like Paul Smith, Edward Jones etc - what will u grapple with, even if u become a citizen of those countries and your name is like Mamaput Atosile or names like - Adebowale Ojuolape or Chukwuma Nkemjiofor.

hmmm - food for thought.

I always say this - if u leave your country because you think there is better life elsewhere and u then degrade yourself to do jobs u will never do in your country, then that is lack of self esteem - the same way u wont just sleep with anybody due to self esteem, then the same way u shouldnt demean yourself to work menial jobs when at home u were an highly paid professional or something.

And true to talk - the people who has the largest posts in Nairaland are people abroad - people in Nigeria seems to be time constrained - not necessarily internet access constrained judging with the fact that most people have access to the internet on their phones, at home or at cafes. So I think we the diasporic people have less to do with our time. Its boring if u ask me - take it or not.

@Mamaput

People leave for so many reasons - work transfer etc, not necessarily for economic betterment or social considerations -

Nowhere u r - armed robers, sugar daddies etc will still trail u.

In the past 6 months - over 10 youngsters have been shot to death by youngsters in UK alone - so where will we run to?

Like i told you , one mans meat is another mans poison.

But if you have lived all your life in Europe , what do you know about Nigeria.

I have lived half my life in Nigeria and the other half here, and i can say i will rather be here.

I do not pay school fees, i always have light and running water. My DR is round the corner,.My kids even go on their own and never spend more than half an hour at the Dr's. If they are really very sick (thank god it has not happened) the DR will come to me.

I hate partys and i hate travelling. Why the hell will i do that to myself.

Because we are not doing slave labor we can relax at work and sometimes we do this by coming and interacting on Nairaland. It is not the fault of those abroad that people have to use internet cafes or work for hours without being able to relax

At last Mr. Pawpaw has made an observation which has a ring of truth, and this is with respect to the very entertaining fake foreign accents and affected airs adopted by some Nigerians who either live abroad or wish they did, all in the hopes of impressing or intimidating people they meet on the street in Nigeria.

Considering that many Nigerians who have lived in the US or UK for decades still prefer to converse with other Nigerians using their native dialects, it is both absurd and amusing to hear other Nigerians who return home from short overseas vacations suddenly trying to sound like the Queen of England, with predictably hysterical results that no one from any country can understand.

This people are just too proud to say what dey do. If Nigerian youths know the kind of work available to them abroad, they will stop lining up at foreign embassies. I will make it my duty to expose the suffering our brothers and sisters abroad face. They are too shy to tell anybody, I have plenty people abroad so I know the nitty gritty of jobs Nigerians do. When I see them in Lagos speaking with their nose I sometimes wonder if this is as a result of them putting something in their nose at work. Oyinbo don't speak with nose even. They come to Nigeria and pretend to be ajebutter, how can some one doing menial job be ajebutter? I hate this silly people.

Heh heh heh. The funny thing is that Naija's abroad aren't in diaspora. The people in Diaspora are the african americans, caribbean and other people of african origin that were taken abroad against their will. We are simply Nigerians abroad.

Though if one were ro use the dictionary meaning, then any Nigerian who has moved away would be in diaspora. This diaspora will of course include togo, Cameroon, and Ghana, amongst other countries.

You're right, only Nigerians use this word. The word is supposed to be: the exodus of the Jews out of the palestinian lands, to settle in other countries, the body of Jews (or Jewish communities) outside Palestine or modern Israel. Though, there are some secondry definitions which do not directly indicate that Nigerians abroad are Diasporas.
