Unemployment: NBS Has Serious Problem With Data – Buhari’s Aide Claims

Unemployment: NBS Has Serious Problem With Data – Buhari’s Aide Claims (Updated: 8 months ago)


Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Ajuri Ngelale has faulted data figures being released by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS).

He said NBS feeds the public with wrong data.

Featuring on Trust TV’s Daily Politics on Wednesday night February 2, Ngelale alleged that the NBS usually gives out the wrong statistics of unemployed adults in the country.

The presidential aide further claimed that data given out to the public neglects those in the informal sector. Ngelale also added that the NBS lacks the right number of staff that can gather data in nooks and crannies of the country. 

He said; 

“I am saying very clearly that the NBS has a serious problem with accurate data till today.

 “The same statistics suggested that somewhere in 2014, that the unemployment rate on the nation was eight per cent that is less than 10 per cent… will you suggest anytime in your lifetime in this country, Nigeria, that we are all living in, that out of the adult population in the country, with well over a 100 million people, that 92 million out of the working adults, even worst that..

 “The Statistician-General told us that we have a handful of NBS staff. Go to the NBS yourself and see what their employment rolls look like, how many staff do they have to be able to send out to the nooks and crannies of the entire Nigerian federation. They send out a handful of people state by state…”
