African welfare tourist in Denmark: “I thought it would take a few months and then I would get a house and a car.”

Translated from Uriasposten:

“In 2010, Nigerian Kingsley Okoro traveled with the help from smugglers through the Sahara and the refugee crossed the Mediterranean in a rubber dinghy in search of a better life in Europe.

… Five years later the dream of a better life in Denmark has still not come true – and now Kingsley Okoro has a new dream: to return to Nigeria and be reunited with his son. …

‘Life in Denmark has given me mixed feelings. Denmark itself is not the problem. People are very friendly. The problem is that I am not able to adapt to society,’ he says.

‘I did not know that it was so hard to get what one wants in Europe. I thought it would take a few months and then I would get a house and a car. But it takes time.'”
