Challenges:

The employment situation in Nigeria largely mirrored recent global trends. At the close of the year (2016) the expansion of the global economy was too weak to close the significant employment gap that has emerged since the beginning of the global economic crisis in 2008. Underemployment continues to be predominant in rural areas, 25.8% of rural residents were underemployed compared to 10.5% urban of residents. Given that the nature of rural jobs is largely menial and unskilled, such as in agriculture and the likes, unemployment is more of a concern in urban areas where more skilled labor is required. The unemployment rate in the urban areas was 18.4% compared to 12.3% in the rural areas, as the preference is more for formal white-collar jobs, which are located mostly in urban centers.
