Eddie Murphy's Coming to America

This is certainly a new way of looking at the immigration paralysis in Nigeria. Mutiu Iyanda sees a conspiracy on how the world is selling North America to attract Africans. I must confess that I fell to that: the first day I landed in JFK and entered New York City and saw beggars, I did not believe I was in the land of Eddie Murphy's Coming to America.

In a research jointly conducted with other colleagues, result indicates that the volume of negative socioeconomic situations reported by the Global South and North news media organisations about Nigeria in 2010 and 2013 connect with Nigerians choice destinations during the years. Over 30% of 344,159 Nigerians who migrated to the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, United Arab Emirates, Spain, Italy, Ireland, France and Australia did it because of the poor education system reported by the media.
