Possible job in Abuja

by davezeeters

Hi,
I have an opportunity to work for two years in Abuja. I can take my wife and kids, but she's worried it isn't safe. Is the risk worth the opportunity? I really want to go, but I want to relieve her fears if possible.
thank you all.
Dave

Re: Possible job in Abuja

Hi Dave,
I lives with my father in Yola, Nigeria in the early 80s, I was 17. There was a military coup, religious insurrection and several other frightening and dangerous occurrences. While I wouldn't trade this experience in, particularly as my father and I became quite close, it was seriously dangerous and not for the faint of heart. Mob activity happens frequently and spontaneously, machetes are the weapons of choice. I would suggest that you try to go for a limited time on your own and check it out before bringing your family. Also, make sure that you are paid in hard currency:dollars, pounds, etc. The naira fluctates wildly.
Sorry to be a bummer.

Travel Tips for Abuja

No people please we're the capital

by sebblit7

Abuja is a young city (30 yrs old) built as a capital city and seemingly designed not to cater for a large influx of urban migrants. So on the one hand it's quite pleasant because it's not affected by the usual overcrowding common in most African capitals, but on the other it's sterile and dull. Lot's of construction going on.

Foreign Journalists wishing to visit Nigeria need to get accredited in Abuja, a one hour flight from Lagos. It's a good idea to travel with Virgin Nigeria because their international and domestic flights use the same terminal (i.e. international terminal, so you don't need to cart your luggage all the way to domestic when you arrive in Lagos)

To make official arrangements Contact Mr. Bolaji Kazeem at Nigeria EPD (External Publicity Department) on cell +2348033254923 email: bolaji28[at sign]yahoo.com
