New members of the Nigeria forum, introduce yourself here

Hi all,

Newbie on the Nigeria forum? Don’t know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country, or to tell us more on your expat projects in Nigeria if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

Just got in here couple of month back,
well got couple of writing to do.....
Maybe later

I've been to Abuja, Nigeria in 2006 to 2007 and again from 2010 to 2013. It will take you some time to adapt to the system, for sure. My advice: try to build up SLOWLY a relationship to a Nigerian co-worker to then learn about the politics of living there. Some decisions made by the locals may not be logical to you, but are when you know the background of politics, influence and status of the involved persons.

Hi All,
i have been to Nigeria since 2008, l am from South Africa, my experience there has been very fruitful and pleasant, the people of Nigeria are warm, loving and most welcoming. i lived in VI, where it was very safe, one just has to be street wise, i consider Nigeria as my second home as it own me and i love it there. Pearl

Dear sir,

Thank you for welcoming me.


Hello! Thanks for the warm welcome. Been here since August 2013; was initially positive about the move but it's taking longer to settle down properly than anticipated and new country blues are now catching up with me.. Came across this forum and thought chatting with others who can relate with that feeling would help... I've lived in several other places so this shouldn't be new but it seems heavier this time... I have 2 small kids and are a stay-at-home (more like drive-around😉) mom with dreams about returning to professional life in the not too distant future... A balanced and interactive life will do for now. Enough said!

Thank you for the kind welcome. I follow my husband's professional move here. It's our very first African experience. Though not very easy in the beginning, we are slowly getting to know the local "way", the "accent" in spoken English, the moving rhythm in daily life, the villages at the outskirt areas, the never-ending construction sites, etc. The first impression of personal contact didn't make me feel welcomed, but much better after a little chat… to warm-up! Hope to learn more from those been here for a while…

we will rock and we are a  new  family group..... Enjoy

To all the expat members in Abuja
How do uu find the secuurity situation in Abuja now?

I don't kno where the Mohinani group of company is,but if u are in Abuja or Lagos u are safe.for the cost of living Abuja is costly as compare to other states in Nigeria.but u can also make good money in Abuja.

thanks for the reply. how is the cost of living vis-s vis India lets say mumbai

I've never been in Mumbai b4 so I can't compare.accomodation here is costly n it depends on the area where u'll like to live.but if ur company pays u good money u can make it.where ur company located ?Abuja or Lagos?cross river state n Akwa-ibom state are very peacefull ,beautiful n cheap states.
