Title:Manpower planning problems in Nigeria since independence
Author:Ogbonna, M.N.
Periodical:The Nigerian Journal of Economic and Social Studies
Geographic term:Nigeria
Subjects:labour force
Abstract:Nigeria's development plans attempt to strike a balance between the need for a core of highly skilled people and the sensitive issue of mass education. In the event, the middle section of the education ladder has been neglected and there is a shortage of intermediate-level manpower, in addition to a maldistribution of potential high-level manpower. At the same time, planners seem unable to equalize the demand for and supply of unskilled labour, while the programme of universal primary education has created a growing group of educated primary school-leavers unable to find employment. An overview of the situation, in the following sections: introduction - Nigerian manpower development - manpower shortages - manpower surpluses and planning to ease unemployment - conclusion.
