A Nigerian Twitter user has shared his experience with a close friend of over 16 years who relocated abroad without informing him.
According to the Twitter user identified as @Nsukka_Okpa, he and the friend met up for a drink a few days before his departure, and they spoke about different things, but he never mentioned he was leaving the country.
Wondering why Nigerians keep their relocation plans a secret, he said the friend called him after relocating and told him that he didn’t tell anyone except his father because he didn’t want to take any chances.
“What is it with Nigerians and travelling abroad without telling any of their friends? Two weeks after they settle in, them go come call you.
Person wey I follow drink beer on Thursday, Don relocate to Germany today. We spent hours talking about beer and never did this werey mention he’s leaving the country. This morning, foreign number dey call me. I think say na scammers, so I no pick.
The number come call from WhatsApp, I pick up, na shedrach. E say e no tell anybody except him papa because e no wan take chances. I was super happy for him though. But glad to know he sees me as a devil that can ruin his Visa application.
This na friendship of over 16 years oh”, he wrote on Twitter.
