An increasing number of young Nigerians are looking to leave the country in search of a brighter economic future, according to the World Bank.

This was disclosed by the World Bank in a study titled “Of Roads Less Traveled: Assessing the Potential for Migration to Provide Overseas Jobs for Nigeria’s Youth,” which was released this week on its website.

Nigeria placed third in West Africa among the nations polled, trailing only Liberia (70 percent) and Sierra Leone (60 percent) in terms of respondents who would relocate permanently to another country.

Niger Republic was the lowest placed country in the study, coming in at 10%.

“With rising migratory pressures created by poor employment conditions, Nigerians are increasingly choosing to migrate through irregular means,” the Bank stated.

It went on to say that Nigerians were the largest group of migrants from Sub-Saharan Africa coming in Europe in 2016 and 2017, with almost 40,000 landing in Italy in 2016, with over 90% arriving by sea.

“A greater proportion of Nigerian migrants arriving in Italy were women (32 percent) than migrants from the rest of SSA (24 percent),” the banks stated

Part of the report also revealed that while the number of asylum seekers from Nigeria has declined in recent years, this does not translate as decreased demand for migration from Nigeria. The drop in migration levels from Nigeria and other Sub-Saharan African countries to Europe is a result of tighter border control policies supported by the EU in transit countries such as Libya and Niger.

“However, the underlying economic and demographic factors that create migratory pressures are unlikely to subside in the near future, with other potential irregular routes being reported through Sudan and Chad to Libya” it noted.

That's a very conservative figure. It could be as high as 80% and even more if you add those who want to have their own country without necessarily going to another country.

Whoever conducted the study richly underreported the truth.

The number is way higher than that, at least in the Southern part of the country.

Left to me, I really don't want to leave Nigeria. Because there are actually still opportunities here. My plan was to retire at 50 on a 100 acre farm in Jos or ibadan. Fulani herdsmen and bandits are making me see why that plan may not be viable.
Heard Canada has lots of agric opportunities and you won't get shot at or butchered on your farm. Most nigerians just need the government to provide security and other stuff would likely fall in place.

Bros we are enjoying today. You would modify this comment in the next ten years. The Nigeria of today is a paradise compared to the Nigeria that is coming. Children will murder their parents for birthing them here.
