Data from the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics shows that, as of 2021, the top three plans for young people in Nigeria after completing their current education are to work as an employee (51.40%), start their own business (9.20%), or go for further education or training (2.40%). These findings are not surprising given the current state of the economy in Nigeria.
With high unemployment rates and a lack of opportunities for upward mobility, it makes sense that many young people would want to start their own businesses or further their education in order to increase their chances of finding employment.
However, it is worth noting that a significant number of young people also plan to work as apprentices, trainees, or interns (6.30%). This suggests that there is still a great deal of interest in learning and working within the traditional educational system in Nigeria.
Additionally, a significant number of respondents indicated that they do not know what they plan to do after completing their current education (20.50%). This highlights the need for more reliable data on employment prospects and educational opportunities in Nigeria so that young people can make informed decisions about their future.
The data collected by the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics provides a snapshot of the plans of young Nigerians after completing their current education.

This highlights the need for more reliable data on employment prospects and educational opportunities so that young Nigerians can make informed decisions about their future.
