“Why You Should Leave If You Feel Nigeria Is Stifling For You” – Prof Amuta

An assistant professor of public health, Dr. Ann Amuta has shared a story about his married friends who decided to migrate to the USA in 2010.

At that period, the couple who were both doctors could barely afford their flight. However now, their combined salary is estimated at $750,000 per year.

She advised that people should leave if they feel Nigeria is stifling for them, however, they should give back when they make it. She made an example of how the wife disclosed that they started a business for her mother-in-law back in Nigeria and now she has 11 employees.

Her tweets read;

“A married couple I am very good friends with who went to med school in Nigeria migrated to the US in 2010.

“They told me they could barely afford their flights.

“In 2020, their combined salary is around $750k annually. The guy is in general surgery, his wife pediatrics.

“They have so much now and have done so much for their families back home. Even built houses and started a business for his mom. My point is…if you feel Nigeria is stifling you, leave but don’t forget to give back when you make it abroad.

“The wife told me to add that her mother in-law now has 11 employees in her business; the one her son started for her. So their migration has indirectly benefited so many more families back home….pretty incredible! 

“Brain drain is not economically all bad.“
