  • Yes a good government and also the youths of our country need to be serious with their lifes by studying their craft and skills both in the formal and informal educational sector very well in order not to be a burden also to the government. As such is a win win situation.

  • Unemployment can be eradicated if and only if the government will create job opportunities via establishment of industries and as well graduates employing themselves by thinking of what the can do to help people within their vicinity or the country at large with their knowledge and get paid..

  • Aside job creation, steady electricity can curb this menace. Do you know that being a gamer or a youtuber is a Job on its own? I mean playing Internet games on YouTube and getting payed for it. Now how can one fully be employed without steady electricity. Believe me this is not just a way to reduce unemployment but also a means to solving Internet scam.

Self employment is one of them and always having a hand work as you are school it might be hair dressing or baking or basket making or barbing and other.. This helps you earn more... Plus with the help of government more job opportunity should also b created for it's citizens..this helps in the economy of Nigeria

  • Eradication of unemployment

    I don't think unemployment can be eradicated in Nigeria. With more population every year and less Employment due to tribalism , religions and country facilities. Where most foreigner invest and startup a company for a Nigerian to miss lead

  • Yes unemployment can be eradicated in Nigeria by creating more jobs. The government as well as private individuals should try and create jobs by building more industries, going back to agriculture, building more hospitals for the people etc. Also they should provide infrastructural facilities like electricity, pipe borne water, good roads etc. There should be improvement in the educational sector

  • Unemployment can't be eradicated (not even in developed countries) but the rate can be lessened by great measure when not just more industries are created but self development is encouraged. When people do what they love like fashion designs, painting, script writing and so on there will be a time of beakthrough even when they start small.

  • Unemployment can never be erradicated in Nigeria. This is because the graduated from school are always not ready with the right skills to take up jobs presented in the labour Market. The truth is that what we learn in class in Nigeria is 80% if not 95% is theory. Untill the graduate will be getting equiped witht the skills need for must jobs on graduation.
