A Nigerian man and CEO of Amiable Peace Travels, Prince Adeleke, living in Dubai, has narrated a grass-to-grace story about how he succeeded in the foreign country.
I left to start afresh
In a message sent to Legit.ng, the man who is now the owner of many businesses in Dubai revealed that he left his supervisor job in Nigeria to start afresh in the foreign country.
He advised Nigerians coming to the country not to be scared of starting small so as to understand the system.
Adeleke said he had to work as a waiter because he believed that he would one day make it with hard work.
Don't pay agents
The man also told people not to ever pay agents for jobs, suggesting it is something they could get for themselves once they are in the country.
According to the CEO, minding the environment one stays in and the circle of friends one belongs to are very important.
"Don't pay agents to find jobs for you, most of them are fake. You can go out, you can do it. You will get a job if you are not lazy."
The man stated that he respects the Dubai government so much, adding that he has been a resident for close to 10 years.

Some agents are evil
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian man identified as Rexfunx spoke about the terrible encounter he had when he was trying to get out of the country.
The man revealed that he had the sum of N1.3 million in his account when he was sacked. According to him, the agency he relied on to process his travel to the UK duped him of the sum of N1.2m.
The man advised Nigerians not to be so desperate in seeking greener pastures abroad, adding that it is not worth it.
Rexfunx, however, said if relocating becomes the last resort, then no Nigerian travel agency should be trusted because of their shady ways.
