BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Unemployment as we shall see takes different forms of resultant of course in all societies there are people who are not employed for instance, the very old, children of schools age and the sick.
When seeking about unemployment we are usually thinking of one particular factor of production only, which is labour. It is a hazard peculiar to an economic system. Human engage in various productive activities in order to satisfy their wants.
In producing human wants (goods and services) land, labour, and capital are utilized for these purpose labour. Being the most dynamic factor of production should be combined with other factor for as to produce sufficient goods and service for general consumption and if fully utilized then there will be no unemployment.
Odunyi (1988) in his book titled unemployment rate in Nigeria explained that the functional natural of Nigeria self-employed where that school leavers cannot be self-employed due to lack of foreign reserved and even growing in serviceable depts.
