National Bureau Of Statistics Says Four Million Nigerians Became Jobless In 2017

A total of 4.07 million Nigerians became unemployed, between January and September this year, according to data from the National Bureau of Statistics.



The bureau in the report, made available on Friday, stated that the number of Nigerians that became unemployed rose from 11.92 million in the first quarter of this year to 13.58 million and 15.99 million in the second and third quarters respectively.

The report stated further that between the second quarter and third quarter, the number of economically active or working age population (15 – 64 years of age) increased from 110.3 million to 111.1 million.


The NBS report said the increasing unemployment and underemployment rates imply that although Nigeria’s economy is officially out of recession, domestic labor market is still fragile and economic growths in the past two quarters in 2017 have not been strong enough to provide employment in Nigeria’s domestic labor market.
