Transparency and accountability
Nigerians who have migrated to the United States through visa lottery confirmed that leaders in the United States are more transparent than what we have in Nigeria. The major problems of the US is the issue of violence and natural disaster, but they have superb leaders.
Another reason behind Nigeria’s immigration to the United States is because of her economy. The economy of United States of America can sustain itself. It’s been designed to be independent of the other nations, as such with the economy down turn across the world, that country has always managed to stay on top no wonder some of US cities are among the top richest cities in the World.
Before the boom of Nigerian entertainment industry, musics from the United States dominated Nigerian clubs and campuses.
Even as Nigerian entertainment is doing fine, USA still dominates the entertainment industry with some of her cherished global awards.
This is a big boom for the country as it attract people from all over the world. Every form of entertainment has it’s roots in this country due to diverse cultural entity working together to put smiles on people’s faces. Movies, music, art, etc. you got it all in one place, that is America.
This is one of the reason why some emerging Nigerian artiste prefer to relocate to the US.
Poor leadership in some countries particularly in Nigeria made some Nigerians to relocate to US. Capitalising on this on assumption of office, US President Donald Trump said Africans and Nigerians in particular, posed serious threat to his country social welfare packages when he said at at a rally in Kansas:
“We have to move Africans. Nigerians are everywhere now. I was at the meeting in Alaska and only Africans were everywhere. Where do you think they are from? From Nigeria!
I saw them in each state where they got a job. Why can’t they find a job in the hometown in their native country? I know, because corruption reigns in their country. Their government plunders people.
Therefore, they come here and take us away from our work. When I become a President, we will send all of them home. We will construct a wall along the Atlantic coast.”
Leaders are held responsible and accountable for any kind of mismanagement in the US unlike Nigeria where leaders and followers are divided.
Whatever your life style is, you will get it in United States of America. They have everything set in standards according to your income level and capabilities, there’s always something to match your life style.
Means of Transportation
Means of transportation is another thrilling reason behind Nigeria’s immigration to the United States.

America has lots of technological innovations across the country. Almost everything is achievable by using technology, ranging from gadgets, household items, robotics, online shopping. You can use technology from the comfort of your home to do just about everything with ease.
Dollar to Naira exchange rate
One of the biggest reasons behind Nigeria’s immigration to the United State is the value of US Dollar against Naira.
The exchange rate of dollar to Naira at the time of filing this report is 360 Naira.
Workers are paid per hour in the US. This is one of the reasons Nigerians who won visa lottery live like a millionaire a few years they come home, driving expensive cars worth millions of Naira.
Remember, every good thing comes with a price, with all these goodies comes a tax to be paid. You practically get good stuffs in exchange for tax. Law abiding citizens have access to everything necessary for a good living.
The above reasons why Nigerians migrate to the United States are similar to why we have influx of Nigerians to Canada, US neighbour.
