Dabalen, Andrew; Oni, Bankole; Adekola, Olatunde A.
Higher Education Policy, v14 n2 p141-59 Jun 2001
Analysis of labor statistics and employer surveys indicated that the unemployment rate for university graduates in Nigeria may be 22 percent and that their prospects for employment have worsened over time. Employers believe that graduates are poorly trained and unproductive, their skills have deteriorated over the last decade, and shortcomings are particularly severe in communication and applied technical skills.
