The youth is the recognizable driving force of every economy, as they form the core of the national workforce. Nigeria is blessed with a predominantly youth population. Official figures from the National Bureau of Statistics put youth population (aged between 15 and 35) at 70 million people; accounting for 42% of the country’s population.

Join us on this episode of the Economy and You as Mr. Tonye Cole, co-founder and executive director of the Sahara Group, Founder, the Nehemiah Youth Empowerment Initiative sheds light on the huge economic benefits if the potentials of the youth population are optimally harnessed.
