Facts & Figures


population of Nigeria

In 1990, 65% of the population lived in rural areas, but by 2005 this fell to just 52%. This trend is forecast to continue: by 2015 only 45% of Nigerians are expected to be living in rural areas. People are attracted to urban areas because of the promise of better jobs, and better living conditions. The reality, however, is that huge influxes of people has led to increased unemployment and deteriorating living conditions as the existing infrastructure is insufficient to accommodate growing demands.
