Japa: Nigerians flood foreign embassies as economic hardship bites harder

 The harsh economic conditions in Nigeria, exacerbated by policies implemented under President Bola Tinubu, have driven a surge in the number of Nigerians desperately seeking to leave the country.

The phenomenon, known locally as ‘Japa’, reflects the frustration of the youth amid economic hardship, inflation, and insecurity.
The desperation to escape the economic challenges has significantly increased visa applications at foreign embassies, particularly in Europe and North America.
The trend is attributed to the unprecedented rate at which people have been leaving Nigeria in the last seven years, as hunger, insecurity, and poor purchasing power grip the nation.
