“Data from the National Bureau of Statistics reveals Nigeria’s unemployment rate as at second quarter of 2020 is 27.1, indicating that about 21.7 million Nigerians remain unemployed. The worst hit are youths between the ages of 15 to 24, which puts about 13.1 million Nigerians out of jobs and unemployed.

For those wondering why Nigerian youths are in the streets championing a revolution, now you know why.
How can a country have this number of youths unemployed?
Nigerian youths should stay in the streets until a sustainable solution is applied to their situation.
