6 Things To Do When You Finally Land in Canada

November 4, 2020

Things are looking dire in the country. People are already dusting their jaapa documents. As much as we need to stay back and fix the country, sometimes you just feel so choked and need to get out. 

When you finally land in Canada a.k.a Nigeria Annex, there are certain things you need to do.

1. Breathe fresh air

When you first land in the airport, first fill your lungs to maximum capacity with air that does not smell of oppression and fundamental human rights breaches.

2. Throw away your powerbank

Power bank? For what? Please fling it once your plane lands in Canada. None of that life anymore.

3. Take a road trip

You might aslo want to travel around from the Cabot Trail to the Okanagan Valley without fear of being kidnapped, attacked by bandits, robbed or dying in a road crash.

4. Take a walk in the midnight

Ever taken a walk in the middle of the night? Here’s your chance. Because the areas are generally safer, you don’t have to worry about getting mugged or murdered for walking late.

5. Protest

Since Nigeria has told us that we’re not guaranteed our constitutional rights to protest, you can do it in Canada. You can protest anywhere, anytime. Pro tip: I suggest you protest at the Nigerian embassy.

6. Feel free to fall sick

Unlike Nigeria where you could fall sick and die from basic ailments, falling sick in Canada is not a death sentence. And nobody will ask you to bring money for petrol because the hospital generator has run out of fuel.
