Stuff Aminu Akhabue talked about

2.30 Does not recommend Malaysia for people at the start of their careers, especially not Africans. Malaysia doesn’t give foreigners the option to study and work at the same time.

11.30: Nigerians need a new mindset. A friend in a Nigerian company goes to work at 8 am, checks in and immediately leaves the office. She still gets paid at the end of the month.

18.35: Maybe you’ve heard about the chain restaurant that started in South Africa called Nandos?

20.20: You’ve also probably heard about the artist named Akon?

28.52: Of course, not ‘the solar system’. He (we) meant using solar power.

33.10: He supports development. If you’re going to be a doctor, lawyer or musician, there are no opportunities in Malaysia for you.
