i know many friends who want to go back to african specifically for nigeria for this reason.  if you work for certain companies they will pay for your housing, give you a shopping allowance, a driver, etc.

like one nigerian man once told me "you make money there w/o even trying as long as you have the connects."

im sure i could do the same thing in Haiti especially since Haiti is no.10 of the most corrupt countries in the world.  that's why my dad left.

I throw no capes for government officials who loot.

But I just want to say it is customary in Nigerian culture to give money. My uncles give me $100 bills every time they visit and they live 2 hours away from me. They are not rich either. $500 is not a lot of money especially for a government official.

I wouldn't ask for an explanation from a person who called me an idiot.  There is no explanation for name-calling on a website full of grown women. 

Nigerians living in Nigeria are usually more generous than Americans or Nigerian-Americans.  Yes, its easier to be generous when you didn't do anything to earn the money.  I find them to be the most generous, lol.

naah thats not safe to say. I think its safe to say when you are apart of a governing body. There are plenty of dr, lawyers, engineers, pharmacists, business owners who do well there, so yeah. 

But I'm telling you all of this like you don't already know that. So carry on Kocky.

Yes there are people who are independently wealthy. They do not tend to run for political office unless they want to end up dead. I am not saying they are all corrupt but can say it applies to 99.99999% of them.

This corruption is pervasive and trickles down into everything. Just to get anything done you have to bribe someone, even the genuinely honest people who want to do business have to do this. It is very blatant and they act like it is their due.

I laughed out loud irl at briany's response!

I would also add that the well educated in west africa, in my case, ghana are very well paid and compensated. You could survive on added benefits/allowances and not need to use ur paycheck. If you're money savvy, you could save a lot and live in luxury

Man how come I dont have the same luck? lol My friend's dad has some connects with people that work in the Nigerian government and he found someone to pay for all four of his children and his wife to fly to Nigeria first class there and back. That is like 6000 roundtrip ticket per person. She showed me pics cause she was so excited it looked like a lounge on a damn plane.

Seriously I'm about to call them up and tell them to let me know the next time their dads are in town cause I have not gotten this treatment. 

My other friend told me she doesn't like to talk about the family business but her dad works for the Nigerian government. I told her not to say anymore cause I knew what wassup. She lives in a mansion in Houston. When you are balling in a country whose money is worth more than your native's country, then you know you are rich.

On the otherhand, both of them told me how their dad's lives have been threatened.
