Expert reveals foreign travel secret to Nigerian youths

Adventurous Nigerian youths, especially undergraduates, planning to seek greener pastures abroad have been tutored on need to learn vocations like welding, carpentry, hair dressing and others before they jet out of Nigeria.

An Ibadan-based travel consultant, Prince Oluwole Ololade of the Frenage Global Multiservices Limited, while featuring on a weekly radio show, Parrot Xtra/Ayekooto anchored by Olayinka Agboola, live on Splash 105.5fm, Ibadan on Tuesday, said proficiency in any relevant vocation would add to their market value, make settling down easier and give them peace of mind upon arrival at their destination.

The businessman also called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to work harder to ensure that the problem of insecurity in the country is tackled seriously, revealing that foreigners were always enthusiastic about visiting Nigeria.

“But the problem of insecurity has been discouraging them. You see, our country is one of the most endowed and this has made it to become one of the most desirable destinations for tourists. This is why insecurity issues must be addressed with all seriousness,” he noted.

Ololade also asked governments at all levels to pay more attention to development of tourists’ sites to attract more patronage.

Reflecting on a challenge his company encountered in 2018, he said the experience had strengthened him just as he apologized to public.

He said, “People who knew us when we started in 2009 can testify that we are serious business people. Specifically, we ran into turbulence because of change of policy by the Canadian government at that time. However, we thank God for giving us the wisdom and strength to weather the storm. Today, we are wiser, rebranded and more equipped to serve our people better. And to show that we are consistent, we still maintain our old office in Ibadan. Our real and potential clients should feel free to visit us.”

While speaking about the value his company is currently adding to the Nigeria, Ololade said “we now represent an America-owned University based on the Carribean Islands. The fees are more affordable if compared to what obtains in other schools in Europe and America and the certificates to be obtained are acceptable worldwide. This can be reconfirmed online.”

He also spoke about his company’s plans to resume the provision of jobs for Nigerians abroad once there are openings.

“Our subsidiary, Frenage Recruitment Services will soon resume full operations. We recruit for foreign companies. We are in partnership with Labour Licensing Recruitment Agencies. We have all out papers. Between 2017 and 2018, we gave jobs overseas to over 250 clients and they are abroad now doing absolutely very well. A new dawn is now here for us at Frenage Group. God has turned things around for us for the better.”
