Federal Government warns Nigerian citizens to be wary of fake study and job opportunities in Cyprus

 
The Federal government through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson, Francisca Omayuli, in a memo titled ‘Travel Advisory For Nigerians Seeking Admission Or Job Opportunities In The Turkish Republic Of Northern Cyprus (TRNC)’ gave the word of caution in a statement released today October 18.

The ministry explained that many young Nigerians have become stranded in the country after falling prey to agents advertising unverifiable opportunities in the territory.

The statement reads

“The attention of the Federal Government of Nigeria has been drawn to the clandestine activities of unscrupulous elements parading themselves as agents and deceiving unsuspecting young Nigerians into believing that Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, provides easy access to “greener pastures” for studies and jobs opportunities.

This has led to an alarming influx of Nigerians into the territory in recent times. The resultant effect, being an unprecedented increase in consular cases of stranded young Nigerians in TRNC.

The general public is advised to be on the alert in order to guard against these so-called agents in Nigeria or elsewhere peddling admissions and the existence of unverifiable job opportunities in the TRNC.”

It is advisable that students and their parents/guardians carry out due diligence checks on any so-called university or tertiary institution before application for admission is made. It is also instructive to be forewarned against deceptive advertising of job opportunities in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus” the statement read
