I miss Nigeria regularly….home is home. The society especially with the ups and down. I miss the Lagos life which l grew up with.

Don’t you think people like you should return to your country and fix it?

About fixing our nation Nigeria : l attempted it in 1993 till 1995 where l took up a job with the Federal Ministry of works and housing Abuja. There’s no way l could because all my ideas were swept under the carpet. The slogan is if you can’t beat them you join them in their ways of operating that is you have to close your eyes to the wrong doings. To cut story short l got frustrated and l left back to Europe where my life is 1million times better here.

Do you face any discrimination there?

Discrimination is everywhere even in my home country Nigeria. When l feel I’m being discriminated against, l don’t believe it should be a problem because l willingly came to meet the owners of Austria. And if l am not comfortable with the situation,the flight is open to go back to Nigeria.
