FREQUENTLY ASKED Q&A FOR THE NIGERIAN TRANSFORMATION PROJECT (NTP)

NIGERIA-TRANSFORMATION

1. Q: WHAT IS THE COST INVOLVED FOR THE PEOPLE TRAVELING WITH ME TO NIGERIA TO PARTICIPATE IN THE NIGERIAN TRANSFORMATION PROJECT?

A: First of all it would be helpful if people who are going with me to Nigeria have some of their own resources to fall back on. It will be nice if a person who is going will be able to afford to pay for his/her own ticket, visa and accommodation in Nigeria. However that is the ideal situation. I also realize that we don’t live in an ideal world which means there will be people who have the desire to go back with me to contribute to the rebuilding of Nigeria and Africa but cannot afford the ticket, visa money and accommodation money to survive in Nigeria. To those people we will be able to extend sponsorship/scholarship programs depending on what they are bringing to the table. I realize that a person might not have money but that same person could have expertise, skills or ideas that are needed in Africa which he will be willing to give and contribute.

2. Q: PURPOSE OF TRAVEL AND THE DETAILS OF THE PROGRAM?

A: The purpose of taking teams with me for the Nigerian transformation program is the fact that as a realist I realized that one of the reasons why we are the least developed continent in the world today is because we simply don’t have enough qualified people in our country. Let’s face it, Nigeria today is only 50% literate, which means our human capital is not developed. We don’t have enough skilled works and laborers especially those who can build a competitive 21st century economy. The developed countries of the world today rely on the human capacity of 100%. They even import from other countries to contribute to what they already have. How can we as a nation compete when we are only at 50% capacity rate? We cannot compete and build a modern economy. We have to fast track our human economy by bringing in those who can train our people to jumpstart our development agenda as a nation.


Talking about 50% literacy in Nigeria, that includes those that are only literate in local languages and those who don’t have more a than a primary school education, which now puts the English literate people in Nigeria at not more than 20%, hence we need a lot of help. A significant number of these well-educated and literate people have moved abroad and are using their skills and education to develop other nations. They must be enticed back to the country to contribute their quota.

When I talk about skilled labor, I don’t mean university educated expatriate. I simply mean anybody who knows how to do anything good. For example, some of the white people I am brining from Europe, don’t necessarily have university education, but they are skillful and experts in technical work. My goal for bringing the Europeans is for them to train as many Africans as possible before they go back. My goal of bringing expatriates with me is for the training of people, especially youth.

3. Q: SECURITY AND SAFETY ADVICE?

A: The people who are going with me to Nigeria are going to be under my care which means it is my prerogative to make sure that they are protected and secured. This will take a multi-faceted approach. First of all, security will have to involve the location. For example Abuja (FCT) will be a more secured location than Lagos or the Niger-delta region. This will be one of the main factors that will inform where we settle in Nigeria.

Secondly security will also involve means of transportation in and within Nigeria. We hope to procure busses, so that most of our foreigners will travel in large numbers rather than individually.

Another aspect of security that we want to pay special attention to is in the area of housing and accommodation of our expatriates. We intend to lodge them in an apartment complexes or estate where they will all live together in one community. Eventually we plan to build our own estate where everybody that is connected with the Nigerian transformation team will live as in a city, together under the security auspices of this vision.

We plan to engage security companies that will be providing state of the art security details for our people. I personally being aware of the security in Nigeria, I am making arrangement to bring with me our won European security detail where we will have professional coming from Russia and other European countries. They will now be required to train the local security as well.

4. Q: STANDARD OF ACCOMMODATION, FOOD HYGIENE AND SANITATION?

A: This is a very important question because I have discovered that accommodation, food hygiene and sanitation could be very important. I personally have had unpleasant situations where after coming back to Europe from Nigeria for the next one month, I had to be running to the toilet because of diarrhea. I am aware that the composition of our food, most of the time will include pepper and other spices which will pose a huge challenge for most Europeans.

Having lived in Europe for 30 years I have come to discover that I am no more able to eat the African food. This informs the reason why some of the people going with me from here will have to be European culinary personnel.

Talking about accommodation, the accommodation we intend to provide for people coming from Europe or America with me will be top notch at least not worse than what is obtainable in any part of the world. I am already looking into some options that will be good enough to suit the housing demand of any European country with consideration for 24/7 water and electricity supply, furniture and clean environment including swimming pools and gyms for recreational purposes.

5. Q: STYLE OF LIVING? (E.G communal living)

A: As provided above.

6. Q: LIVING ARRANGEMENTS (GENDERED)?

A: The living arrangement will be in accordance to the number of people we have and their family compositions. If we have husband, wife and children, they will definitely have to stay together in the same apartment. However if we have single individuals, they will have to stay in the same apartment with people of the same gender. Two single people might have to share an apartment. Male separate, female separate, but all together in one secured estate.

7. Q: BEHAVIOR OF TRAVELER?

A: We are going to have definite time of orientation for those going with us to Africa including some code of conduct that will be read out and studied by all going with us. Some of the code of conduct that might be worth noting right now could be.


We will encourage the Europeans to avoid laughing, making jest and ridiculing the African population.
There will definitely be a lot of things that will be unfamiliar and look primitive and out of Place in Africa, however the purpose of our visit is to help support and educate rather than criticize, abuse or exploit.
We will advise especially our white friends and colleagues not to travel in isolation but rather travel in groups and with trusted company.

8. Q: TRAVELERS WITH CHILDREN?

A: If people are coming with us with their kids, we will make arrangements for schools, kindergarten and other necessary modes of education. Besides we will advise all people going with us to do all the necessary immunization/vaccination for themselves and their children as required by the Nigerian government.

9. Q: MIN AND MAX AGE LIMITS?

A: Minimum age limit will not be stipulated especially if people younger than 18 are going with their parents or guidance. However, the maximum age limit does not exceed 65 years old.

10. Q: TERMS AND CONDITION FOR TRAVELLERS?

A: See above please

11. Q: CODE OF CONDUCT?

A: To be developed

 12. Q: GENERAL EXPENSES ADVICE?

A: For those who are able to take care of themselves as they go with us to Africa, between 2000-3000 usd will be necessary for a comfortable stay in Nigeria. I will like to say that if you won’t be in the position to provide such an amount of money, the Nigerian transformation program will be responsible for a lot of the general expenses.

13. Q: TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS?

A: See above. Any additional questions should be sent to Nigeria@sundayadelajafoundation.com

People with such situations or other severe health challenges are not advised to travel.

15. Q: JET LAG?

A: For most people traveling from Europe there will be no jet lag and the same goes for people coming from Asia. Jet lag will only affect people coming from places across the ocean like America, Asia and so on. It is however easy to overcome and this should take place within a week of arrival.

16. Q: FLIGHT ARRANGEMENTS – CHARTER?

A: See above.

17. Q: VISA REQUIREMENTS?

A: Most nations of the world will need a Visa for West African countries and West African sub regions. Africans/West Africans are the only ones that might not need a Visa. So we are taking it upon ourselves as an organization to arrange the Visa invitation letters for any potential candidate traveling with us to Nigeria. We will do the invitation and we will work with the embassy to make sure that everyone coming secures a Visa to Nigeria and later on a work permit that will allow them to stay in Nigeria for a period of two years and above. We strongly recommend that anybody coming in for this project will sign in for two years and above to work with the Nigerian Transformation Project (NTP).

18. Q: TRAVEL INSURANCE?

A: Concerning travel insurance, some countries require travel insurance to go to places like Nigeria. That could be gotten for as little as $200 and above. Whoever is coming will be able to resolve that question themselves.

A: See above.

20. Q: TRAVELER’S EMBASSY IN NIGERIA?

A: Concerning embassies in Nigeria, for those coming with us, they will need to get Nigerian Visas in Nigerian embassies in their countries or embassies where their countries are attached to. All these questions could be resolved in an ongoing work process. Most of the developed countries in the world have their embassies in Nigeria so they should not have any diplomatic problems in that regard.


21. Q: RESPONSIBILITIES OF TRAVELER?

A: Those going with us to Nigeria are required to come with their expertise, knowledge and skills. We also advise such people to volunteer to serve in Nigeria for a minimum of two years.

24. Q: THOSE WHO REQUIRE REPEAT PRESCRIPTION?

A: For those who require prescriptions, we will advise such people to put a system in place whereby they will be able to have a constant supply of their medications while they are in Nigeria. Such arrangements is better left to the individual traveler.

25. Q: PSYCHOLOGICAL ASPECTS AND HEALTH?

A: It is extremely important to have a clean bill of health in regards to mental and psychological state of the travelers.

Mentally and psychologically unstable patients are not recommended to go.

A: See above.

27. Q: POTENTIAL HAZARDS?

A: There are challenges that are awaiting every potential traveller in Nigeria, first of which is 1. The hot weather, 2. The danger of disease in case of lack of immunization, 3.

Otherwise, Nigeria will be an exciting place for everyone traveling there. Nigerians are some of the most hospitable, entertaining and interesting people to be around.
