Nigerians Are Offering Americans A Place To Move To After Trump's Election Win

"Welcome to Nigeria anytime."

Posted on

After Donald Trump was elected, some Nigerians in the US were starting to joke about being deported.

Somewhere in USA: Abuja , Aba , Lagos, Port Harcourt, onitsha come and take your sit here

What with a president in Nigeria who's not overly popular, and now this, generally they are finding life confusing AF.

Trump in USA, Buhari in Nigeria... Nigerians in US right now

For those who do leave, some Nigerians are being really welcoming and offering the top accommodation spots in town.

Nigerians in the US, here are our top 3 hotel apartments 1. Wendo Court 2. Ikoyi Fairview 3. Habitat Apartment We can't wait to see you

I WOKE UP TO TRUMP WINNING. You my American brothers and sisters are welcome to Nigeria, ANYTIME. #MessiahIsTheKingOfKings

Whereas others are pissed because Nigeria is constantly trolled for being a shit country.

African Americans: "I'm going back to Africa, my motherland... blah blah blah" Africans:

All of a sudden that doesn't seem to be the case for some.

Basically Nigerians on Twitter aren't taking a great liking to Trump.

Trump you are still an oloriburuku ode osi but ok

oloriburuku = evil.

Your pastor said 2016 would be a good year.

Some are actually fearful for the future.

Donald Trump is leading in key states nitori olorun

Trump will be the president of the USA....this is seriously scary and upsetting

And some have a bad taste in their mouth.

People are also talking about the well-known Nigerian poet Wole Soyinka, who said he'd destroy his green card if Trump won.

Dear Professor Wole Soyinka, please think twice before you tear your Green Card. You may find the recession back home hard to deal with!

Although one or two are more optimistic.

His aministration might not be as bad as feared #beOptimistic

Above all, Trump winning the US presidency without much political experience has given a lot of Nigerians confidence they can do anything.

If Donald Trump wins the US election, I'm so running for the Presidential election in Nigeria 2019.

Really.

Trumps win should give you the encouragement to apply for that job u think you're unqualified for! Go for it, u can be whatever u want
