NBS: 21.7 Millions Nigerians Now Unemployed by oshozondii: 8:53am On Aug 14, 2020
The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) says 21.7 million Nigerians are now unemployed.

According to its Labour Force Statistics report released on Monday, the number of unemployed Nigerians went from 20.93 in 2018 to 21.76 million in the second quarter of 2020.

This means more than 17 million Nigerians have become unemployed since December 2014, while the total working age population has grown by almost the same number in those six years.

For the first time in the history of the revised NBS unemployment reports, the number of people in the labour force willing to work dropped.

There are now at least 10 million people in the labour force unwilling to work, according to NBS.

According to its Labour Force Statistics report released on Monday, the number of unemployed Nigerians went from 20.93 in 2018 to 21.76 million in the second quarter of 2020.

So since 2018, the number of unemployed people has only increased by fewer than 1 million. This is obviously false, particularly against the backdrop of the covid-19 induced recession, and points to a continuing trend of the NBS massaging statistics to look more palatable.

Yet the im.becile Amaechi wants to collect loan from Chinese slave traders with Nigeria's sovereignty.

They turned blind eye to ill treatment from Chinese nationals towards Nigerians in Nigeria but come out to tell us there is nothing wrong with ceding sovereignty for loan we can't pay back to purchase rubbish locomotives. There was a country.

Seems they’ve counted Bokoharam recruits and employees. A percentage of that which i believe is much higher than the legitimately employed persons.

Way more than that, they are lying to save face undecided

What is it about the government and its agents and employees that they can lie to us with impunity, but we risk being sent to jail if we lie to them?
