A few weeks ago, we started a series on the unemployment data tagged #UnemploymentTimeBomb. We tried to define the “problem” by explaining that given our young population size we have a “flow” that will keep adding to the unemployment numbers.

For instance, we analysed that Nigeria added 5.4m people to the working population in 2018 and to catch up, Nigeria will need to create at least 450,000 jobs every month. We considered the options available to all (State and Federal Govt) in managing this #UnemploymentTimeBomb
We said for instance that direct govt jobs will not work, but rather a combination of private sector led job creation + enabling environments for biz to thrive. We also matched data of unemployed people to crime rates in States to see if there is a pattern. #UnemploymentTimeBomb

We all have seen the big number - 21m Nigerians unemployed. If you paid attention during the elections, you can be forgiven to believe this is the whole story. But it's not. Which is why in collaboration with @OpenFundingNG we will be reviewing the #UnemploymentTimeBomb
This will be a three part thread over the period of a few weeks. The purpose will be to break down the unemployment numbers by State and see if there are trends we need to track. It'll be a continuation of the conversation started below by @OpenFundingNG

We will also identify and focus on the 10 Best States and the 10 Worst States. We will match their unemployment figures with their revenue and other relevant data such as debt, GDP and crime rate so that we can better appreciate the challenges ahead. #UnemploymentTimeBomb
