The Chief Executive Officer of Y2GO Limited Consult, Mr. Richard Morgan has appealed to Nigerian students studying abroad to consider coming back to Nigeria to contribute their knowledge and experience in the drive toward the development of the country.
Morgan said this at an open forum and interactive session for parents and guidance’s with St. Clare’s College, Oxford, England organized by Y2GOLimited held recently at Renaissance hotel, Lagos.
The forum provided an opportunity for Nigerian parents to interact with the representatives of the best IB College in United Kingdom, (UK),UK Boarding School, Foundation College, Bespoke Schooling Options, guardians and support to Ivy League Universities in the United State of America, St. Clare’s College, Oxford.
He noted that Nigeria remains a land full of boundless opportunities and potentials to make Africa great again and Nigerians’ home and abroad must buy into the project called Nigeria and bring in their ideas, skills, opportunities and network to bear to make the country great.
Morgan, who have spent many years in Nigeria providing opportunities for Nigerians’ students to study in outstanding universities around the world opined that Nigerian students are doing well in many universities and colleges around the world and their skills can be of immense benefit to the country.
Although, he lamented that many Nigerian students are finding it hard to stay back in Nigeria because of poor wages, inadequate facilities, delayed salaries and in some cases poor working conditions which often times discourages them to stay back in Nigeria.
“We have loads of doctors and other professionals who have studied in good schools abroad but they come back home and are faced with delayed salaries and inadequate facilities that make working conditions unbearable, they want to go back to the country where they have studied and have the right facility to work in”, he said.
He restated that commitment of his organization in providing better educational opportunities for Nigerian students everywhere in the world said “Y2GOLIMITED is currently enrolling students into both overseas schools, foundation programmes, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in over 200 Universities and Colleges that we partner with in UK, Ukraine, Hungary, Bulgaria, Belarus, Latvia, and Lithuania, Philippines, Sri-Lanka, Canada, Australia, Ireland and the United States of America to name just a few.”
In his words, the Business Manager, St. Clare’s Oxford, Richard Gorst said that St. Clare’s College is a pre-university college that aims at preparing students for A-levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma programmes.
“The college has over 50 nationalities with first class facilities. Our students can experience a culture that is different from theirs, thereby enriching their lives. It doesn’t matter what country they come from, they will get another perspective of the world which will remain with them for life,” he said.
