  Unemployment Alleviation Strategies:



The firm currently provides seminars in rural economic development at Nigeria because development of industries in rural areas of Nigeria would diversify sources of revenue for Nigeria, and effectively utilize the abundant labor supply in rural areas. Such will reduce the number of unemployed rural Nigerians, and reliance of rural Nigerians on oil revenue handouts, and therefore decrease the number of rural residents living in poverty.

Nigeria is perceived as one of the richest countries in Africa because of its abundant population, and large petroleum reserves and revenue. Such speculation was based upon Nigeria being the fifth largest source of United States oil imports, and one of the world's largest exporters of oil. Ironically, instead of fabulous wealth the most dominant feature of the Nigerian economy is unemployment and poverty. There is a need for development strategies that will revitalize the economy, and thereby provide relevant plans for combating unemployment and poverty in Nigeria.
Unemployment has been a problem in Nigeria, especially since 1980, when the nation’s economy took a turn for the worse as world petroleum prices tumbled, the Nigerian currency became devalued, corruption became rampant, and the population of Nigeria ballooned at a breathtaking pace. Nigeria has sufficient land mass and labor resources to become a great location for labor-intensive industries, and thereby provide employment to the masses.

The firm facilitates varied organizations develop and locate cost conscious industries in rural areas to take advantage of low-cost labor and land, and as a means of rural economic development. Rural residents then have work and the opportunity to develop abilities that would make them employable by varied industries, and this will ultimately alleviate poverty among rural residents, since lack of employment opportunities in Nigeria has resulted in rural poverty. In turn, poverty leads to alienation of poor people (who are often rural residents) from political-economic functioning of the society. This cycle is completed when alienation further decreases their interest in developing the skills, knowledge, tools, beliefs, and values to perform financially rewarded activities.
The seminars provided by the firm are relevant to the economic development of Nigeria, because of the need for rural economic development programs to revitalize the Nigerian economy and act as a relevant strategy to combat unemployment, and ultimately poverty in Nigeria.
