Two Nigerian men currently serving in the US Army have responded to those criticizing them for not joining the Nigerian army and instead choosing to serve another country.
Speaking in a video making rounds online, the soldiers urged those castigating them to go ahead and join the Nigerian army and leave them out of it.
They also mentioned the current exchange rate and said they can’t serve in the Nigerian army and be paid “peanuts”. According to them, they weren’t born to suffer, and joining the Nigerian army equals suffering.
One of the soldiers further described Nigeria as a vacation spot and not where people should live, and advised people to leave the country.
The clip has sparked a myriad of comments on social media, with many sharing differing opinions on the soldiers’ statements.
