A Nigerian man has caused a stir on social media after disclosing that his cousin bought a duplex in Canada five months after relocating with his family.
@uchennapaul took to the comment section a lady's post on Twitter to make the disclosure, saying his cousin's wife earned N25k (R961.59496) as a private school teacher despite having masters, but now earns over N800k (R30739.94751) as a lecturer in Canada.
In his words:
"My cousin moved to Canada with his family July last year. They bought a 5 bed room Duplex within 5 months. His wife with an MSC was earning 25k as a private school Teacher in Nigeria, now a Lecturer and earns over 800,000 naira monthly in Canada. I know God will do it for me too."
Tweeps flooded the comment section to share their thoughts as some noted that there was no way his cousin could have bought a house within five months except with mortgage.
"It's not possible to buy a duplex within 6months in Canada ....as if you don't pay tax and bills in Canada. Something fish is goin on."
"Don’t be deceived the flat they bought is on mortgage and will probably take away 3/4 of the salary for the next 25-30 years before its paid up if its ever paid up due to regular remortgages. It is good to go abroad but it can become a final destination except for grace of God."
"There’s easy opportunity for loans to own a house and its the best but There’s always a catch somewhere in the deal except you get the support of very experienced people. If you plan to return within 10 years don’t get it and don’t have children young. Is that an option?"
In a similar Briefly.co.za news, a lady has generated massive reactions on Twitter with her 'great achievement' as she posted about her new house in the US. @OfficialNurse_ said there was "no sugar daddying or hoeing" done to be able to afford the good life she wanted for herself.
There were, however, many people in her comment section who said that the building in the photos she shared is not her own.
People who were certain she was using the photos to gain clout called her out. At the time of Briefly.co.za's viewing, the young lady had not disputed the claim.
