We all said Nigeria is still goo, How ? i am politician but i got quit off from the job offered, aren't you seeing what is happening, the Boko Harram issue, electricity failure , no government water unless you struggle to get a borehole by yourself, don't even talk of the roads , the only good roads we have is the very one that is plied by the government officials , so what are you talking about saying Nigeria is Ok than other countries, we have a bad government, we have the oil, do we ever enjoy the benefit or does this oil belongs to the politicians ? NO , it is the Nigerian oil, they are sold in crude to foreign countries and we are supposed to have a benefit from it as a citizen, but no no no, the only beneficiaries are the politician, the top , please lets leave that aside , talk of our educations, why does the teachers go on strikes if we have good organization and the government are wishing the young once to grow ?they aren't,

we only have schools, but after becoming a graduate or whatever, where are we to be found ? no where but yet , we need to survive but how ? the people that were all saying Nigeria is good, i may say they are making their money somehow, please lets speak the truth, lets tell the whole world what we are facing , maybe God can touch the heart of someone to change from bad to good. My younger sister won a visa lottery to the USA 4 years ago, and she left with her husband and children, i called her asking when she will come home for a visit, her answer is " BROS , NEVER IN MY LIFE " I more richer than her when she was here, but now, she is taken care of two out of my children as is i am not capable of bringing them to the world, yet i am working and collecting a very good salary . how do i spend the monies i was making, when there is no light, i usually buy fuel or diesel into my generator , just to get breeze for my relaxing , and that cost about 3k daily , fuel in my car 4k daily, feeding and maintenance of my house will not be less than 10 k again, and at time, you have problems with your care again that need maintenance, even the generator you depend on needs it too, how about loading cards on your phone daily , and how about paying your children schools fees in a better school that will not lead them to cultism or any bad gangs, please anyone that will comment on what i have just written should think well because if you are not there yet to spend something big daily, you will surely get there one day and see what i am saying, so can somebody tells me why i will not support anyone that wants to travel out of hell ? because presently, this looks like a hell to some people, but as for me, i still have a good job, but if anyone intends to travel and never comes back until you hear that Nigeria is good, please go ahead, Cotonou is even preferable than Nigeria to live. please it's just a piece of advise.

The guy who is talking about Dominican Republic about people being employed by an American school , have you lived here before , cause that's a BIG LIE , am here and i know what it is like here in Dominican Republic , one problem is Discrimination, until you identify yourself as an AFRICANO , then you are like King because thhttp://www.nairaland.com/Themes/default/images/post/xx.gifey respect Africans and about the school employment , the only people American employ here is people who speaks American English and Nigerian speaks British English , so that's a big lie and another thing is that no one will ever employ you without residence , i mean Dominican residence , the only American Job Available is Call center , i wont mention the amount they pay , but without you speaking American English , no one will ever get a job like that here and Dominican employers don't pay well the highest they will pay is 12000 peso , so dont let anyone who dont know what its like here deceive you . the country is a little better than Nigeria , in terms of LIGHT ,WATER AND INTERNET , all other is bullshit , and everyone is finding their way to get out of here , so dont let anyone deceive you again because its all lies

The best of all the island is BAHAMAS , and no way to go there , because Nigerian has spoiled it ,even if you have the visa , you will be sent back , if you every to go on the journey its a life time regret , so go and look for visa country and apply thats the real truth , all the agent saying there is a way to get to USA,CANADA from CUBA,DOMINICAN REPUBLIC ,ALL THE ISLAND , ITS A BIG AND A VERY FAT bleeping LIE , i have seen it all and i wont lie to anyone only if you have money to waste , then i wish you Good luck , but the best advice to anyone is to use that money he wants to waste and arrange himself and go to a better country , which is not visa free or use that money get DUBAI visa, go and buy anything you want and start a business over there, thats the truth ,.

@Sithanda, Dominican Republic is nice. Nice to visit and live if you have money. I can certainly say stuff works there better than Naija. Regarding hustle though, I wouldn't advise anyone from Naija to go there to hustle. If you don't speak or understand spanish, you might find it extremely difficult to make it there unless may be you are employed by American/English schools.

@Sammy107_d, Just wanted to make a quick correction. Cayman Islands and the Bahamas doesn’t require a US Visa since they are not part of US territories. Cayman requires a British visa while Bahamas would require a Bahamian visa.

Hi people,

Am Uche by name and am currectly living in Barbados i have been reading every body post its really nice well if most say carbbeans island is good but like one broda or sis say this island is good for visit he or she right Nigeria is rich than this countrys but in time of the economy most of this island is better than Nigeria very well they goverment make things easy for they citizen like barbados where am living now free education from primary school to university and every year the goverment give the stundents some money for they school uniform and they goverment also provider books for them and they also have free medication in the hospital and if you are stranger and you happen to get them citizenship you will enjoy all this so what am trying to say is that this country is very good if you can get a job you will like it here but is not easy to get them citizenship it take 3years or more that means if they aprove you ooo.but Nigerian are not much here because since i have been here i have not see any Nigerie but there is alot of Nigeria in bahamas i have friend there who tell me this and they are doing well there i guess.

D fact is that trinidad cannot be compared to nigeria even in nigeria's comatose state.trinidad is very small.a country of 1.3million,smaller than delta state(delta state is 4 *tt).now lagos state alone minus our epilectic light cannot be compared to a whole trinidad,naija is made up of 36states.port of spain d capital of trinidad cannot be compared to abuja in anyway,let forget corruption in naija.what of port harcourt,calabar,kano kaduna,which market in trinidad reach onitsha market,where?is it chagunas market?san fenandos mrkt,etc,infact of a truth you cant compare an organised lagos state to trinidad at all.lagos is far,not to talk of nigeria,is it because we dont want to grow,naija paid d salary of civil servant in trinidad,jamaica,etc during oil boom in d 7os when those countries could nt pay their workers,how can somebody say they are helping us do our life,hw?nigerian drs there are they not using there trainging to develope their country while we have brain drain here.our politician are d cause of this because if they do d rt thing no nigerian wil leave naija though people travel for various reason.nobody of sane mind can compare nigeria even in ts our state to trinidad and tobago.bt it is a nice country,fine babes,sm nice people&their system ok,bt naija is stil fine,bt we nd to get our system work as it should.the blacks in tt hate black frm africa and cal them blody african,they believe we sold them to slavery.

I was curious to understand why there are so many Nigerians living in the islands and was doing some research when I came up on this forum. To my dismay and disappointment there were and are so many negative comments from Nigerians living in the West Indies , This is disheartening considering that the Nigerians have come to the islands and are using what ever little human resources we have but can do nothing but find faults, and make comparisons saying why Nigerian is better, then why are they here, why don't they return to Nigeria. I am not a biased individual but when foreigner enter our region to better their lives and use all of our resources which we are struggling to make end meet for ourselves it is very difficult to tolerate such attitudes

who is comparing Trindad to NIgeria , i beg respect yourself , i live here in Trinidad and by far Nigeria is better off .

if you are not in the medical field is very diffclut to get a job .

for citizen ship and residency , as a matter of fact i know of most nigeria that are citizen .

if u work for govt after 7 years u get ur passport but to process will take a year

residency 5 years

if u work for private it takes 10 years to get ur papers

people here are very racist especially the black , .

Trinidad is not bad at all 24 hr light , water , good shopping centers

if you want to enjoy Trinidad just come during there carnival , which take place feb of every year .

most people use here as a stepping stone to advanced to first world .

Most of those islands are known for tourism. Due to their weather, beaches, landscape, etc. I do not believe their visas are easy to get either. Getting a job will not necessarily be easy. I have been to quite a few islands. However it's just for vacation and my stay there is usually for a few days and may be a week max.

nice to hear from u all it good that we all share our idea of how is the live in carribean .i no if am traveling to most of the good carribean island i need to get uk or u.s visa. but am not traveling to carribean with my nigeria passport i have a south african passport which is free visa to all the carribean island both the good and the bad island.becoming a citizen of the island is just to have a good life and a good taste of freedom when traveling around the world and to creat a better future for my kids and my self.i heard trinidad is a nice country full of indians and the most citizne people are indians.they have oil and they is a job for u can work and good money.easy to be come a citizen.they have embassy in lagos if u want to apply for they visa they will tell u to make a depoist of 5000$ that when u go and come back they will give u the money back they is what they told one of my friend .dont u think it very silly for nigeria government to allow that to happen.but i found out that with BVI resident permit u can enter uk without a visa.life is full of fun let make money and have fun in the carribean sweet beach.

Trinidad is just like Nigeria; so its easy to start a little business there, buy your local ankara and garri etc. Thousands of Nigerians there, lots of crime, cheap stuff. . . But its in no way better than the UK.

All the Caribbean Islands are cool and nice for tourists but not for residential purpose.

If you want to live there, its another game entirely. U got to be prepared to spend a huge sum of money.

Mind u, most Caribbean Islands are full of blacks. So there's is everything you see in 9ja there in terms of

crime, corruption and others.

The major diffrence btw Carib and Nigeria is that:

1) You can easily make bucks in Nigeria if you know your way.

2) They have a sys that works which is better than Nigeria in terms of tax, amenities, Job security and others .

Similarities are:

1) We are both Black

2)There's Corruption and crime there

3)They are not that rich, they mostly depend on loans whereas there's no loan for you in Nigeria if you're poor.

You can only love the Caribbean if you have a job here. BVI, USVI, Bermuda, they are all the same, Expensive like hell/heaven, lol

Nigeria is better than the Caribbean if you're a hustler.

good day,I have a friend living in trinidad and he has been saying so many good things about the country like how nice and easy to get a job that i am already contemplating about moving to the place from u.k. Can any nairalander who know about the place get me informed.

Seriously; except you have loads of dollar denominated money, you are not African, or you just want to visit for a week or two, then you are better off in Nigeria (or somewhere else). I can assure you that you won't get a job- if thats what you think, you'll pay through your nose for every bloody thing (800 bucks monthly accommodation, and 20 bucks for a shoe-size yam for example), and you'll be treated like a miserable nigger seeking asylum by the authorities. The first thing you consider when moving to a place is its people. Grenadians are very welcoming, hence the suggestion. I really can't talk about any other caribbean island apart from barbados & grenada. . .

If you can make it to USVI, BVI, Caymans, bermuda and co, you might as well go to the UK or US, as most of those bearable islands are still territories of either country.

Grenada?

Whats In Grenada?

Well , I jus wana let u knw that caribbean is very expensive. they dont produce anything here. Everything is is imported. They also depend on tourism. So I think Nigeria is still far more better than caribbean unless if you have a job here, then u'll be cool. But its very hard to get job here.

Nigeria is better than Caribbean. If you still insist to travel there, I'll advice you to consider USVI, BVI, Cayman Island, Bermuda and Bahamas. Don't even go near Grenada, ok,

Good Luck

It's not very nice in the Caribbean. If it's the least bearable, it has to be Grenada.
