A former lawmaker, Shehu Sani, has decried the rate of unemployment in the country.

Sani lamented that many Nigerian youths have resorted to pursuing advanced degrees as a result of unemployment.

The social critic expressed his concern in a post via his verified Twitter handle on Monday.

Recall that a multinational consulting firm, KPMG had stated that the Nigerian unemployment rate had increased to 37.7 per cent in 2022 and will further rise to 40.6 per cent.

KPMG said this was because of the continuing inflow of job seekers into the job market.

While commemorating the “Workers’ Day” celebration, Sani said that unemployment forced many youths to seek for postgraduate studies.

He wrote, “Unemployment has forced so many youths to pursue masters and Doctorate degrees.

Happy #MayDay2023.”
