A Nigerian man, Shamseddin Giwa, who had been enduring hardship overseas with little to show for it, has narrated how he become wealthy after returning to Nigeria to hustle with his wife.

Taking to the microblogging platform, Twitter to share his story, he advised people not to waste time abroad if the plan was not working.

Giwa revealed that he and his wife had also moved overseas many years ago in quest of a better life. However, the jobs they got were demeaning and tiring as they still struggled to live an average life.

He pointed out that many other immigrants had it worse, with some having wives back home and experiencing even more problems in their relationships.

After thinking things through, the couple quietly came back to Nigeria to start life afresh and decades on, everything they sought abroad got handed to them back home.

He wrote;

“The relocation story you don’t get told.

This was us several years back as a young couple looking for better life abroad. The dream was good, the intentions were good and we had enough to start. We just didn’t have enough information of how challenging it would get.

We started life in a single room within a shared flat where we even got told when we could use the washing machine or turn on the heater (even in winter).
The jobs were demeaning and always tiring but the poor exchange rate of my home currency gave a false sense of deception that one was earning good but the reality was different. Even with both our incomes, it was difficult to live averagely. Note: we were way better than others here!

At least we were together but extreme work rota meant we barely got to spend time together, marriage strained. Now imagine many had their spouses back home and their marriages went through worse.

Always at the mercy of the home office that was always changing immigration policies, one never truly felt settled. In the end, we returned back home and quietly started over, together.

Decades on, everything we sought abroad got handed to us back home! AlhamduliLlaah.

Now imagine many still stuck, illegally living, unable to work for standard rates, unable to even rent a place in their name, unable to open an account, unable to have peace of mind and always apprehensive of law enforcement, unable to grow yet unable to return home!

you and your marriage in different ways. Please be sure before you copy anyone and sell all you have to move. However, if you find yourself stuck, have a good exit plan even if it means coming back home to start over.

Many people and marriages are breaking due to the pressure unplanned. Don’t go this route, do your findings well, your home depends on it.”
