The federal government has warned of the activities of unscrupulous elements posing as agents, leading unsuspecting young Nigerians to believe that the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus offers easy access to “greener pastures” for study and job opportunities.
The warning was titled in a press release; “TRAVEL ADVICE FOR NIGERIANS SEARCHING FOR ADMISSION OR WORK OPPORTUNITIES IN THE TURKISH REPUBLIC OF NORTHERN CYPRUS (TRNC).
The press release, issued Monday, October 17, and signed by State Department Spokesperson Francisca K. Omayuli (Mrs.), stated: “The attention of the federal government of Nigeria has been drawn to the clandestine activities of unscrupulous elements who are calling themselves to the Shows to deceive agents and unsuspecting young Nigerians into believing that the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus offers easy access to “greener pastures” for study and job opportunities.
“This has led to an alarming influx of Nigerians into the area in recent times. The resulting effect is an unprecedented increase in consular cases from stranded young Nigerians in TRNC.
“The public is advised to be vigilant to guard against these so-called agents in Nigeria or elsewhere who are peddling permits and the existence of unverifiable employment opportunities in the TRNC.
“It is recommended that students and their parents/guardians conduct due diligence at any so-called university or college prior to applying for admission.
“It is also instructive to be warned about misleading advertising of job vacancies in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus”.
