Why can’t they invest the money they pay touts to smuggle them overseas into projects like farming and agriculture? Oyo State government and others are giving free land for farming and agricultural purposes. Nigerians would rather have quick money and short cuts than hard work which requires perseverance but rewarding in the long term. See how expensive food is in Nigeria because nobody wants to farm and prefer imported foods that are loaded with cancer causing preservatives and chemicals. What do harsh tyrannical countries like Libya and Malaysia have to cause lawless Nigerians to be attracted to even venture risking their lives to migrate there? Fix the mess in your country and live peacefully. If the citizens of those countries don’t love their countries and sacrifice, foreigners would not find them attractive and worth taking risks to travel there in the first place.
