Ogundale, Michael Olarewaju, Bawa, John, Sambo, Maria Anpe


Youth unemployment poses grave economic and social problems for Nigeria and requires urgent attention. Youth are the engine room that propels any society to greater heights. This paper looks at the youths’ unemployment situation, deprivation and policy interventions. These youths have become a “generation at risk” because of the lack of sufficient or sustainable decent work making them extremely vulnerable. The paper also examines the theoretical theory to underpin it as well as consequences of youth unemployment and recommendations. The paper concludes that youth unemployment in Nigeria is endemic. Combating the challenges of the rising unemployment level is a major task for the Nigerian educational planners in their planning processes.
