Nigeria's unemployment numbers jumped by nearly 30% this year to 16 million, according to a November report by the National Bureau of Statistics. Another two million are expected to be unemployed by the end of the year. The negative trend comes as Nigeria this year overtook India as having the world's largest population of people living in extreme poverty and just ahead of February presidential elections. Timothy Obiezu reports for VOA from Abuja.
