BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The survival of human beings that is man depends largely on some units of life.
The most important of them is food, while others include housing pipe borne
water, health, among others. In this present day’s basic essential of life are
not obtained as gift rather that is purchased by those who demand for them.
This is why they always say there is no food for lazy man; an idle man is this
work will be unemployed person. An unemployed person can be educated and
uneducated. In this Nigerian context like others developing countries, apart
from the general belief among economic planers educationist and policy maker.
This can be accelerated by spending more on education. Educational programmes
if properly conceived and planned, should be instrumental to the full
development of the individual citizen.
Despite the emphasis, many may say there is over emphasis on formal education,
Nigeria educational system is not only distorted at critical points but more
importantly, its basic orientation is grossly out of tune with the employment
needs of its product, or with the development need of the society (Ukeje 1986)
consequently, white collar workers are always in over supply in recent years,
many critics have called for the relevance of education to the needs and goals
of the society some social anthropologist for instance have argued that
education can be dysfunctional as well as functional and educational investment
like all other is subjected to demising returns. While scholars and
educationists have advocated a close relationship between education,
educational systems and the man power requirement and absorptive capacity of
the modern sector of the danger of merely imitating the educational system of
more advanced countries and to the fact that unemployment among university
graduates are increasingly becoming that fact of life in Nigeria.
While the problem of unemployment among all categories of school leavers in
Nigeria has become of serious concern to scholars either articulate citizens,
only a few studies have attempted either to produce a precise qualification of
those important phenomena in terms of status, sex, age, occupation, tribe,
religion and level of education in Nigeria
