  1. how sad. May they rest in peace. God help our Country the height of unemployment is sad.

  2. And one idiot go wake up tomorrow saying I love Nigeria and Goodluck . Nothing works mehn

  3. CNN in one of its recent broadcasts, posits that 100 million Nigerians live
    below the poverty line. The National Bureau of Statistics said over 54% of youths
    in Nigeria are jobless,while the World Bank puts the figure at 56%.

    According to Dr Okonjo Iweala, the misery index increased in 2013.The consequences of this is that the Youths and Poor are becoming more susceptible to crimes .

    Boko Haram, a designed tool to destabilize President Jonathan, could also have its
    roots to the Arab Spring which has been traced to Poverty and Joblessness.

    According to Wole Olanipekun (SAN), former Unibadan Chancellor ……“Go to the
    Streets, …you see anger and frustration …..suffering, poverty, anguish
    and malady written boldly on the faces of several Nigerians”. Chief Mike Ozekome
    (SAN) described Youth Unemployment as the father of Boko Haram,
    Militancy, Kidnapping, Robbery etc.
