Reno Omokri warned against drawing too many similarities between Nigeria and the US, Canada, and some regions of the UK in a recent Facebook post about the hidden expenses of living abroad. Omokri highlighted the difficulties with using public transit in these nations, where bus wait times are far longer than in Nigeria.
He highlighted the financial demands of car ownership in Canada and America, citing a monthly expense of at least $1000 for insurance, parking, tolls, and licenses. The costs in the UK, excluding London’s congestion charges, were mentioned to be around £450 per month.
Omokri drew attention to the healthcare system, pointing out the time and financial constraints involved in accessing a doctor abroad, in contrast to Nigeria where a doctor’s visit is more immediate, albeit with negotiation potential for fees.
The post emphasized that Nigeria, despite its challenges, excels in security and ease of living when compared to certain foreign countries. Omokri cautioned against using social media to portray a misleading image of life abroad, highlighting the potential struggles with boredom and the high cost of living, unless one has a thriving business. He concluded with a call to avoid de-marketing Nigeria online and suggested that a comfortable lifestyle in the West requires more than just a desire to relocate. CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
