Unemployment In Nigeria: How Has It Affected Your Family? by TourismMan(m): 10:55am On Jan 31, 2018
High rate of unemployment in Nigeria is no longer a topic for debate as the obvious truth is seen in most families in the country especially those without connections and 'long legs'. The country undoubtedly has been hijacked by the political elites and men/women of substances in high places. These are the people who believe they own the country, therefore, they channel every good thing in the country to themselves including the topic at hand: employment leaving others, the poor and average citizens gasping for breathe for survival in the same country. What a country!

While those in the families of the political elites may not experience one unemployed individual in their immediate and extended family, others in the poor and average families have stockpile of family members unemployed or in some cases underemployed (but that is a topic for another day).

For example in my family, I would use both immediate and extended family to draw my points. Over 85-90% of my family members are currently unemployed. Most of them are graduates in different fields while some are not. These are people under the age of 45. Some graduated from tertiary institutions many years ago with nothing to engage on till now. This however has left me to wonder what the future holds especially for me as I am in university at the moment. God forbid, I wouldn't want to be in a situation where older ones are. I repeat, God forbid!!!

Figuratively, I can count 24 vibrant young men under the age 45 unemployed in my immediate and extended family. I can also count at least 20 women under this same age range (married or single) unemployed. Mind you, most of these people are graduates.

I know people would say, entrepreneur is the solution to the situation, but most of these people can't even have access to N100k to start something. How do they start then with nothing as capital in their hands? Secondly, if the said entrepreneur is that reliable, how come the political elites not encouraging their children and loved ones to subscribe to it but would rather secure gainful employments for them in high places and then resort to advising the poor and average citizens to embrace entrepreneur?

This thread can serve as a poll/platform for Nigerians to pour out the unemployment situations in their respective families for the world to see what is going on in the country called Nigeria. Who knows, these political elites may pause to have a rethink after reading the unfortunate situations going across the country.

Lastly, as a question, how is the unemployment situation in your family? What is the way forward?

Let's tell the world and chart a new course. We can't continue like this. Not at all!!!

Very hard. When our leaders come newly into office. They will be worried on how to improve the welfare of the people. But when they stay long then they consider every thought from the masses as political opposition so shameful. Buhari I think you should rethink now.

I'm gainfully employed...earn good money but I save little or nothing at the end of the day because of high level of dependency on me by the unemployed relatives and friends.

You really have big boys on your site .
So I joined the dating site but I am still a virgin, I was hoping to find my man and give him all I have saved , so I met this guy on the dating site and he was so sweet , as soon as I told him I was a virgin, he withdrew, stopped talking and became cold , so I kept pressing until he opened up and told me he does not want to marry a virgin but he loves to rape them .i got so scared ,I asked him to explain,then he said he likes rough sex , he likes it very fast non stop and for virgin it will seem like rape because he can’t go slow. When he was explaining it , I got turned on and wanted to try , so I told him I am ready to be raped by him but with a cost , he asked how much I said 300k , he asked for how many rounds and I said 3 rounds , he asked for Ac no, I sent him and he sent me the money . Bom I am scared to death, I don’t know what it will feel like , will I bleed ? Will I cry . Is it worth it ? Do I give back the money ? I don’t want to end up giving this my virginity for nothing or anyhow kind of man . Pls advise me , he might see this but no harm .
