The top 10 countries of origin for new international students entering Canada in 2022, were:
India (226,450 students)
China (52,165 students)
Philippines (23,380 students)
France (16,725 students)
Nigeria (16,195 students)
Iran (13,525 students)
Republic of Korea (11,535 students)
Japan (10,955 students)
LESSON: The largest developing countries with huge populations will ALWAYS have more emigrants, PARTICULARLY if they are from a country with a GOOD STANDARD OF EDUCATION, which allows them to prosper overseas.
So similar highly populated developing countries like Ethiopia, Bangladesh, Egypt, and Pakistan DO NOT JAPA AS MUCH as HIGHLY EDUCATED COUNTRIES like Nigeria, China, Iran, and India.
It is a sign of our PROGRESS since independence that we have so many millions of well educated people able to wake up and say ''I'm off to Canada to settle!''
''I'm off to Germany!''
Your illiterate grandparents under British colonial misrule and subjugation, where literacy rate was barely 5% at independence courtesy of British looting (compared to 75% literacy today), could never DREAM of JAPA.
JAPA to where?
Did they know what an airport was or where Canada was?
Or what they would do if they got there?
They didn't have any choice but to remain stuck to the farm.
So guys, remember where you came from.
You are barely a generation removed from subjugated, malnourished, illiterate African village peasants under colonial jackboots.
If you were born even 50 years earlier than you were, you would have been most likely a village palm wine tapper AT BEST, or a village farmer.
ILLITERATE of course.
So count your blessings every so often.
We are doing well as a country.
Na small small.
As it was better for you than your forbears is as it will be better for your offspring and their offspring, because as we all know, Naija no dey carry last.

There are billions of people in India and China

Yes, that's why they have hundreds of thousands of students on the list, while Nigeria has 16k.
If China had only 220 million people as opposed to 1.3 billon , she would have a similar small number as Nigeria.

Celebration of mediocrity. The country keeps deteriorating badly while this one is here decieving himself with crap. SMH.
|Re: This STATISTIC Proves That JAPA Is Not A Uniquely Nigerian Phenomenon by Rossikk(m): 9:37pm On Sep 21|
Deteriorating relative to what?
You are in heaven compared to where your immediate forbears were in the 1960s, talk less of before the 60s.
If the country was ''deteriorating badly'', you would be an illiterate village hunter like your grandfather or great grandfather, or worse.
You would have NO EDUCATION and NO PHONE.

Obi2saveNigeria:Should we just relocate to Anambra. That's a state Obi has saved and made a force to reckon with.
IPOB UGM are saying "Hi"
|Re: This STATISTIC Proves That JAPA Is Not A Uniquely Nigerian Phenomenon by Rossikk(m): 9:45pm On Sep 21|
Funny how there are almost the same number of AMERICAN STUDENTS doing JAPA to UK as Nigerians.
I wonder if there are similar cries of ''failed government'' emanating from the US.
I guess not since when white folks travel, it's called 'adventure' and 'exploration'.
When black folks travel, it's a sign their country has 'failed'.
|Re: This STATISTIC Proves That JAPA Is Not A Uniquely Nigerian Phenomenon by Rossikk(m): 9:51pm On Sep 21|
You are wise indeed. No place like home.
If you have any chance at all to prosper in Nigeria, do not Japa.
|Re: This STATISTIC Proves That JAPA Is Not A Uniquely Nigerian Phenomenon by Racoon(m): 10:39pm On Sep 21|
Abeg my country first before one senseless japa.
|Re: This STATISTIC Proves That JAPA Is Not A Uniquely Nigerian Phenomenon by GeneralPula: 10:51pm On Sep 21|
Oh. So op been dey think say nah Naija dey travel pass? Because of us too much noise about Japa..
No be so o..
|Re: This STATISTIC Proves That JAPA Is Not A Uniquely Nigerian Phenomenon by LegendHero(m): 10:56pm On Sep 21|
Nigerians just too loud.
No be we even travel pass to UK, USA, and Canada. You have Indians, Chinese, and etc in far more numbers than us but na we dey always make noise of japa pass.
You see them setting ring light the moment they get to USA/UK/Canada dey feel like say na then better pass.
|Re: This STATISTIC Proves That JAPA Is Not A Uniquely Nigerian Phenomenon by Rossikk(m): 11:33pm On Sep 21|
Exactly. To the point other African nations now know what 'Japa' is because of their big Nigerian mouths on social media always shouting and moaning about one thing or the other.
China alone has nearly 150,000 students heading to the UK and over 220,000 to Canada each and every year. It must be nearly a million each year to the US, yet you will never hear PIM about it.
Yet China is the world's 2nd biggest economy and superpower! Can you imagine if that was Nigeria with such a status, and such numbers of people were travelling overseas to school? Nigerians would have crucified the country online and called it a clear failure, and said things like ''we are not a superpower. Look at all the people fleeing the country! What type of superpower is it that cannot educate its people? Zoo country! Failed nation!''
Today, ordinary 16,000 students in UK and the whole world now associates Nigerians with 'japa', because they've used their own big mouths to crucify their country.

Nigeria generally hate their country and try to belittle it at any given opportunity. There is lack of patriotism.
Ghana is officially bankrupt and for the past few days, Ghanian citizens are not raging online badmouthing and condemning their country.
If that same thing happened to Nigeria, even the inhabitants of Antarctica would have heard the constant mocking that Nigerians will do to their own country.

Bro, u are hitting like no other .

We overdo bad things in Nigeria and says grass on opposite side is heaven

I think it's a colonially-induced inferiority complex to be honest, allied to a lack of a truly nationalist/Pan Africanist leader in the post-independence period similar to Kwame Nkrumah, Kenneth Kaunda, Jomo Kenyatta, Patrice Lumumba, Mandela etc, etc.
So they basically retained the same sense of innate inferiority which the British had instilled in them and left them with at independence, and they still have that same complex till today.
They are the world's largest importers of bleaching cream, and they try their darnedest more than other Africans to sound American, British etc.
It's embarrassing watching some of their newscasters and actors/actresses trying to sound American or British in comically fake accents.
They actually have expensive schools in Abuja and other cities where rich parents send their kids to learn to speak with a British accent.
It's just tragic.

I am giving you latest figures as at September 2022. Nigerians increased from 21,000 to 62,000 the highest ever admission given to Nigerians took place last year.

The United States, the leader of the free world, has had one of the best post-Covid economic recoveries in the world with high economic growth (remarkable for an advanced economy), very low unemployment and inflation that has fallen to just over 3% and yet, the President, Joe Biden, is struggling badly in polls and public perception about his management of the economy and direction of the country. Because of course, America is a thriving advanced democracy where great expectation is placed on its leadership.
Yet, here you are talking about Nigeria (one of the most wretched, miserable shiitholes in the world - little better than Somalia or South Sudan) plagued with the insecurity challenges of war-torn hellholes, some of the deepest infrastructural challenges in the world, an economy in the gutter with a dollar trading for over N1000 and inflation at over 25% and debt-ridden government, and you're rambling about people owning PHONES (that are imported and increasingly unaffordable for most due to the escalating forex crisis). Been very inactive on this forum for a very long time and I snoop in today and find you're still here, regurgitating the same buffoonish apologetics for a failed laughingstock of a country? Just pitiful.

The Chinese, France and Americans on that list are going for real learning and not to japa. They go back toe their countries after studying. From the last stats released by uk 100k Chinese students had about 500 dependants, while 36k Nigerian students had same amount of dependents . The Chinese and co are studying stem courses mostly not useless courses like international linguistics or business management . Those students will take back some of the ideas and advancements to their country.
The Nigerians are mostly using study for japa purposes they are not coming back after 😆

Agbadorians are on the beat again with their mendacious tales. Ghanaians are complaining about the cost of living. They did this recently by protesting, and even Juliet Ibrahim joined to complain about the cost of living. The belief that citizens should not complain when things are going awry is entirely misplaced. Even White Canadians are complaining about the cost of living and house prices.

Nigerians have been relocating ab initio. However, the numbers soared after the incompetent feudalist Buhari became president. Before this unintelligent cattle rearer of a modafvcker became president, Nigerians only went to the UK for studies and returned immediately after it. The stats are online. Very few people took loans to study, as most could save their fees while working in Nigeria. Access Bank was conducting aptitude tests for grads in London. As soon as you graduate, you move to Nigeria to resume work. Come 2015, nefarious and Ndi intellectwats said Buhari was the best thing since sliced bread, and Jonathan was kwarrupt.
Some might ask: did Nigeria become bad as of 2015? No. Nigeria had issues as far back as 2002, but the economy grew 6%+ under Jonathan. Crude pipes were not vandalised as they are now. APC cretins will say Jonathan enjoyed high oil prices, but the current oil price is projected to surpass $100 per barrel, but due to the continuous siphoning of oil by vandals, we don't export as much as we should. There is a reason Elumelu complained on Twitter months ago. The mysterious aspect is that the oil theft started under Buhari; the man who miscreants chanted will handle security, while Osinbanjo will handle the economy.
