Nigerians have expressed their despondency on the harrowing economic situation in the country and how they are left with little choice but to leave the country for ‘greener pastures’-Japa. They highlight jobs, insecurity and a general sense of hopelessness as part of the reasons for relocating.
As a follow up to our trending stories in the ‘Japa’ series where we reported on organisations that recorded high turnovers of staff in the month of July and into this new month; as well as emigrations occasioned by the resumption of academic activities by foreign schools after the summer holidays, we report on the views of Nigerians on the exploding, if fashionable trend.
While some Nigerians have expressed solidarity towards the mass movement/brain drain, some have blamed the government for leading the country to a degrading state, encouraging mass emigration of Nigerians.
On the other hand, others have highlighted the need to stay in the country and build the nation together, citing the no-place-like- home cliche. Lets know what you think at the comment section.
