Relocating Abroad Will Not Solve Financial Problems

When you live in a country like Nigeria where a lot of things are not working, you think that your finances will change when you relocate abroad. You think so because you link your financial problems with the conditions of the country. You assume that changing your location will solve your financial problems. Although this is common thinking, this thinking is inaccurate. Relocating abroad will not solve your financial problem. This is because financial problems are not caused by the conditions of the country you live in. If the external environment were responsible for making people rich or poor, everyone in Nigeria will be poor and all the people in developed countries will be rich. But this is not the case. We have people with legitimate wealth in Nigeria and some of your re...
