Nigeria hit by mass unemployment

Nigerians forced into tough working conditions as unemployment rises in one of Africa's most resourced nations.

    Unemployment affects more than 20 percent of the economically active population in Nigeria.

    The figures are staggering when it comes to Nigeria's youth.

    Around 50 million youth are out of work.

    Rising unemployment is forcing thousands of people, including women to endure tough working conditions just to survive.
