@chimarokay: “Well, I believe you can actually take the 150K job in Abuja. Anyone that has someone that passionately funds their lifestyle can actually make this choice of yours. No be today we start to see people that live large while working for peanuts. I believe you.”
@AyoOyalowo: “Forget peace of mind, if you are still young, 800k in Lagos is better except you have gone past middle age. Just my opinion.”
@ernyorlah: “This tweet doesn’t sit well in my brain.. You’ll pick 150k over 800k for peace of mind?? Nah, my mind will never be at peace knowing I picked 150k over 800k in this Nigeria of today!”
@yemi_dear: “I told someone that I can’t work and live in Lagos despite growing up there even if I’m paid in dollars except my house is a walking distance to my office.”
