The man identified as Emma Madu, who is now an American citizen, in
his candid advice, wants other Nigerians to leave the country if they
have the opportunity.
Read what he shared online below;
After running around looking for gas to power our factory generator in
Onitsha, I did not even think twice when I got the chance to go to
America. It is still the best decision of my life.
I got a job, went back to school while working. Became a U S citizen,
brought my brother to America, and built a house in Nigeria. Then went
back to Nigeria to get married. Brought my wife to America and got her
a greencard. Now with 3 kids and 15 years in America last month, I can
tell you sincerely, if you get the chance to move, move.
I was a nobody in Nigeria then, but today, my membership card of
Knight Of Columbus is enough to get me inside the Vatican without a
ticket. Just my ID. I cannot count how many times I have seen
Nigerians being searched like criminals in many airports while I
simply stroll by with the shout of “welcome Sir” from the same airport
officials just because of my US passport. And then you almost bust
into tears knowing that the only difference between you and those your
brothers is the passport.
The same people you were chatting with inside the plane until it is
time to show our passports. Then you get a welcome sir while your
brothers get a path down.
So if you are doing well in Nigeria fine, but if you have the chance
to move, move.
