The dilemma of development not being widespread in our society has driven several untrue stereotypes on some professions in Nigeria. This is evident amongst school children who have come to associate skilled labour as a derogatory profession to aspire to. These skilled workers have to be included in the continuous growth evident in other sectors. This can be achieved when the government sets a minimum standard for skilled workers to follow, continuously upskill them for meaning results.
Travelling is the best mind shift anyone can aspire to acquire due to its ability to open up one’s imagination and best experiences. Nigeria’s passport being one of the weakest in the world can be built up through visiting Visa-Free countries for Nigerians. Also look out for countries with Visa on arrival policy for Nigerians, this way Nigerian travelers get the much needed travel history. Countries like Kenya, Cape Verde, Senegal, Morocco were highlighted for their ease and numerous activities to engage in when visiting.
