I found this really interesting article in the latest issue of "Aspire" (black UK magazine)
about the dilemna that we as young African Intellectuals face..as fas as figuring out what 2 do next, once we get the degrees , a bit of experience ...a bit of financial comfort...

Should we go back to actively contribuate to the developement of of our respective countries instead of complaining of the lack of advancement or development...??

Ca laisse a ponderer right (food for thought right?)

I think the answer to this question will be different for everyone. Transitioning back to life at home is so much easier when you have a good support system (lots of family, professional contacts, etc). If you don't, of course moving back is not impossible but perhaps not as easy.

I would never think less of anyone who decides to make a life for themselves somewhere out of their country. However, I have to admit that I do get very tired of hearing Nigerians tell me that they are willing to move home only when things are better. So the work of nation-building is left entirely to some 'other' people and they will only be beack to enjoy the spoils of success.
