UNEMPLOYMENT IN NIGERIA: Causes And Solution by lloydtruth: 6:46am On Aug 31, 2013
The state of Nigerians have in
recent time deteriorated in terms of
the standard of living of the citizens.
This article is cycled around what is
perceived as a Conspiracy between
the Government and the Private
Sector to make life miserable for
Nigerians by intentionally bringing
poverty upon them especially the
productive age through a
systematically structured platform
to make sure that the youth of this
nation never get to see the light of
the day.
Unemployment is a global issue and
not peculiar to Nigeria alone but the
case of Nigeria has become that
which is described as " The bad
state of a community is to the
benefit of the elites". The
Government has constantly
Expressed it's awareness of the
steadily increasing state of
unemployment in Nigeria thus
leading to almost all political office
holders using statement like " the
teaming unemployed youth" even
though most of them do not know
the meaning; but the copy-copy
syndrome at work, and even the
minister of finance said that the
unemployment in Nigeria is giving
her sleepless nights ( sure? Who do
we ask) and the president have
equally made several statements
regarding unemployment in
Nigeria, but the question is, are they
really doing anything about it? NO,
NO and NO, they brought out one
lottery program in the name of
YOUWIN and another they call SURE-
P, ( is this how unemployment is
going to be tackled in Nigeria?), the
worst of it is that when the
president or the minister of finance
is been asked about their efforts
towards reducing unemployment,
they will quickly refer to YOUWIN!,
but the BIG question is: what is the
cause of the increasing
unemployment in Nigeria?.
There are many of them but let me
emphasize on three(3) :
(1). Over taxation of the SMEs
(2). Heavy, Heavy, over Heavy
GREED of the private Sectors
(3). The cost of running Nigeria
Government.
(1). OVER TAXATION OF THE SME's:
All over the World SME is what
boosts the economy but here in
Nigeria, Government at local and
state level have sworn not to give
SME breathing space, they impose
multiple and over taxation on the
SME's and introduces several
unreasonable levies with steady
molestation and harassment by
touts and thugs who make lots of
money for them on a daily basis
and yet these Governments still
complain of lack of funds for
development. This over taxation
has kept many many SMEs out of
business.
(2). HEAVY, HEAVY and EXCESSIVE
HEAVY GREED of the private Sectors:
As a matter of fact greed is an
understatement here, this is were
the Conspiracy and slavery comes
in, the Government has been
empowered to regulate the
activities of the private Sector but
Nigerian Government have turned
blind eyes to the greedy activities of
the private Sector, one of which is
the free hand given to them to turn
Nigerians into slaves by operating
their so called OUTSOURCING/ IN-
SOURCING CONTRACTS JOBS. There
are two types of companies:
OPPORTUNITY CREATING COMPANIES
AND OPPORTUNITY SAPPING
COMPANIES.
These outsource-rs and insource-rs
do not create opportunities rather
they go about looking for where
opportunities have been created to
take advantage in the name of
supplying labor, and in turn use it
as a medium to enrich themselves
and impoverishing/ enslaving their
supposed workers. For instance the
client pays a hundred thousand
naira (#100,000) per worker
through these contractors then the
contractors pay these workers
twenty thousand naira (#20,000)
that is if you are lucky enough to
get up to that amount and with a
threat of take it or leave the job
after all there are a thousand and
one persons begging to get the
same job since job security is not
there. Before this outsourcing issue
was said to be for casual jobs but
right now its spreading all through
and one day we might wake up to
hear that the office of the president
of Nigeria has been outsourced, YES
because the people involved in this
modern slavery called
OUTSOURCING are powerful that
even those who have AN
OPPORTUNITY CREATING COMPANIES
are closing it down in preference to
AN OPPORTUNITY SAPPING
COMPANIES because of the Heavy
progress and success these
OUTSOURCE-RS have enjoyed at the
expense of the Nigerian workforce.
Researches made shows that other
countries of the World are in serious
regulation of the outsource-rs to
avoid evil deeds but over here in
Nigeria they are given all the
support they need which has widen
the gap between the rich and the
poor because the poor takes
nothing home while the rich that
home large part of not one, not two
but many poor workers salary in
the name of OUTSOURCING/ IN-
SOURCING, CONTRACT STAFF.
(3). The cost of running
Government in Nigeria: The primary
aim of setting up Government is to
help reduce the problem of the
subjects but over here in Nigeria,
Government has become our
biggest problem, elect or appoint
someone in a position today the
next minute he will give the wife
one illegal office called office of the
first lady, some even go as far as
having office of the mother of the
governor, all just for the hunger for
"POWER" and there are so many
other offices that are not supported
by the constitution, yet Government
sponsors these offices and their
activities and even most of the legal
offices in Nigeria have used their
position to legalize outrageous
pays in the name of ALLOWANCES
yet same people will cry in front of
cameras " OHHH!!! WE NEED TO
PROVIDE JOBS FOR THE TEAMING
UNEMPLOYED YOUTH" with which
fund? If i may ask.
To all Nigerians this article is meant
to give a clue to our Government
towards reducing unemployment in
the nation and saving the lives of
it's citizens from unnecessary
hunger and keeping them out of
social vices like Terrorism,
Kidnapping, Arm robbery, Yahoo-
yahoo, illegal migration to other
countries ( and subsequently
ending in jails) and saving
Nigerians from this foreseen slavery
by the corner but if the Government
refuses to take action within the
shortest time, maybe Nigerians, just
maybe it's time . Help Spread this
message.

our leaders are only there for their own selfish reasons, they do not care about the students nor they unemployed, their aim is to fill their pocket as much as they can.

Nice try. But I'll advice you to find and buy the book titled 'Solution To Mass Unemployment In Nigeria' by Professor Ogbimi.
I believe that would give you a clear(er) insight.
I think the book should be available in OAU bookshop
