How rich Nigerians are buying citizenship in Caribbean nations to beat visa rules

Faced with such difficulties, wealthy Nigerians are buying citizenship in Caribbean nations to…

    Sure we want doctors, engineers. But when you do not enjoy to a maximum the rights and entitlement within any nation. You will find that others will discriminate against you and even though you have the skills of a well trained and good doctor. I say Black women and women in particular, "Think princess" You have been abused for too long. Being a princess you will know entitlements and have the good life.
  • Thank you, Ras Doc Rico.

    For those who may have wondered about or have children with dreams of traveling and becoming doctors etc. This is an opportunity that will not only provide the correct info, but also will give those who sincerely want to give back to thier perspective communities the skills to do so.

    What you will find here is not the program the Pres Obama, is speaking of in amerikkka his call for volunteers to help build the amerikka, preparing to run run 26-30 millinon of its Africans off of the face of the earth.

    Rather, this is a call that has been forthcoming since 1998 from the leader of a country that has never done anything but help oppressded nations and its peoples.
    In reality the real answer to what YOU can do for YOUR people.and your perspective country. via providing the best health care possible minus the spin.
    Case in point
    On January 27th 2010 i left the comfort of my home, telling my partner and family in Cuba and the US that i was going on a mission. i did this in order to make sure that no tears were shed and no fears were shown, because Haiti needed me and Cuba called for volunteers.

    Had it not been for the training i recieved in prev years in Cuba after my US training in the 70's, i would never had known how to respond.
    Now, whenever that call comes, i remember the words..DO NO HARM.
