  2. Nigeria is a land of opportunity period. But many Nigerians just want quick money and nobody wants to do the hard work. Look at the 100 list you just came up with and when you ask people back home they will tell you there are no business ideas and the only way for them to survive is to come abroad

  3. I like the ideas, if only young Nigerians will wake up and begin something. A lot of the ideas listed can be established on as low as $100.
