INTRODUCTION

Human beings engage in various activities in order to satisfy their wants. In producing human wants (goods and services) land, labour and entrepreneur are utilized for these purposes. Labour being the most dynamic factor of production combines with the other factor to produce goods and services for consumption if fully utilized,, then there will be employment.
          Unemployment is a hazard of an industrialized economy system, primitive communities were usually self sufficient and had no unemployment problems through they had to accept a veriy low standard of living than communities had even previously enjoyed.
          Yesufu (1974) in the Nigeria journal of economics and social studies said that some unemployment started   with the introduction of money market by the colonial masters to substitute or alter the subsistence economy which our people were conversant with. Wages earning employment was employment was the introduced by the colonial masters in their bid to tap Nigeria raw materials for export were they are sold at profitable price
          The civil war period provided jobs for many in the armed forces but the magnitude of the unemployed increased after the civil war because of the effect that majority of the unemployed are young workers sentering the labour market for the first time after receiving education to attracts this aspiration and value they did not have enough education and practical training to provide them with skills.
          These school leavers prefer white collar jobs to the farming. The government could not employ some one because of lack of job opportunity while the population of the working forces was increasingly there was no commensurate increase in job creation.
          Oduniyi (1986) in his work title “unemployment rate in Nigeria explained that functional nature of Nigeria education system where school leavers cannot be self employed due to lack of foreign resource and the over growing unserviceable debts has brought about retrench and high rate of unemployment that prevail in the country in the recent years.

          Secondary school leavers were relatively few then in Bendel state now Edo state and delta state in the 1960’s and 1970’s before the Udoji award in general and Oredo local government area in particular.
          This made unemployment rate among secondary school levers. By 1972 when free education of all levels was introduced and there was increase in the job opening available.
