Abstract

Poverty and unemployment are stark realities confronting the majority of the populace in the Nigerian state. The statistics to this effect present a worrisome situation, when juxtaposed with the abundant natural resources available to the nation. The National Bureau of Statistics has said that 112.519 million Nigerians live in relative poverty conditions, while the statistics from Manpower Board and National Bureau of Statistics showed that Nigeria has 64 million people unemployed. This study examined how the low quality of leadership in the country since independence has created this sorry state. The study proffered various measures that could put an end to the continued perpetuation of bad leadership and thus liberate the people from the brutal web of excruciating poverty and joblessness.
