Unlearning and relearning

Also speaking about opportunities in foreign lands, Kehinde said Nigerians limit themselves to menial jobs by not unlearning and relearning.

In his words:

"Most of our guys are not tapping into their full potential. They just get into Europe - they are educated back in Africa but because it takes time for them to get certification for whatever they are doing or they have to unlearn what they have learnt in Africa, then relearn here. They don't want to do that, they just go to casual work."

Cultivate the foreign land to make it yours

Kehinde said Nigerians living in the United Kingdom can cultivate the land to make it theirs by virtue of building companies.
