Nigeria: The Young and the Unemployed


Al-Jazeera feature on youth unemployment in Nigeria. Despite Nigeria’s fast-growing economy and rich natural resources, there do not seem to seem to be enough jobs to go around for the hordes of young graduates each year.


Demographics are not helping either. Nigeria also has one of the fastest growing populations in the world, which is set to double by the year 2035. Rising unemployment + rising population growth = big trouble ahead.
