The United States is one of those “green lands” everybody wishes to go to, just like Oz, it seems there’s a powerful wizard working wonders over there that makes the land green as one Nigerian singer once sang. It is not true that America has lots of job opportunities and has a form of circus where investors and competitors converge. It’s a land of countless opportunities, that’s what my best friend thinks.

Apart from securing a good job and living in a nice place, most people are not infatuated with a nice house and good job life, they want more. So most people migrate to the US for lots of reasons. Let me explain a few reasons people love to migrate to the US;

1. Educations

It’s not an adage that education in the United States is not only theoretically standardized but equally practically evaluated with principles to back them up.

Most folks would rather sell up their fortune to have their kids study in the States because they trust the quality of education their kids will receive and that’s not a joke.

2. Employment Opportunities

Yeah, you know what Nigerians call America?? God’s own country. That’s where it all happens. The land of endless opportunities and it really is. I’ve seen and heard of folks who left their homes and countries for greener pastures in America and who made it after a while. So, yes, this is one of the many reasons people move to America.

3. Meet People And Learn New Things

You could meet people in your hometown and equally learn new skills but in America, it is usually like all nerds conversion, where every skilled person in each field just bond up and bomb! Create an invention that never was. I heard of a team of tech guy geniuses who merged up in America and made history. Learning new skills and creating a strong network with geniuses might be your one reason for moving and it is fine.

4. Technological Advancement

It is not new that technology in America is advanced and has more of the world-class technological devices in the world. This makes life much easier and safer and most people would move for the comfort than for any other reasons.

5. Jobs With Good Pay
