A vox pop was conducted on social media recently and the question asked was where people would like to settle down if nothing like family, career, money or children were in the way.
We gathered that many people would like to live outside Nigeria, in fact, an approximate 60% of the people who commented would prefer to live and settle down outside Nigeria. Canada, was a popular choice amongst those who chose to live outside the country.
Other popular picks were: Russia, Atlanta, Dubai, Denmark, Paris and Singapore
Below are responses of the people who chose to live and settle down within Nigeria:
Felix O Sylvanus – Some Forest in Delta to create my own reality…
Adeoye Ibukunolu Oluwadamilola – It’d be Nigeria as base. From there I can visit the world whenever. There’s so much to be done in this place. Most of us want to run away so that we can get a real opportunity to help ourselves.
