A report by Afrobarometer, a pan-African survey research network that provides data on African experiences and evaluations of democracy, governance and quality of life has identified 10 major woes of Nigerians.
The report, presented to newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday by CDD-Ghana through the head of Corporate Communications of NOIPolls, a data research company, Mrs Nelly Ohuche, listed the problems as corruption, unemployment, insecurity poverty, lack of water supply, education, among others.
“Almost nine in 10 Nigerians (85%) say they are concerned about kidnappings and attempted kidnappings in their state, including 55% who are “very concerned” about this issue. Only 13% say they are either not that concerned or not concerned at all.
“Apprehension about kidnappings is more widespread in the three northern zones – North West (96%), North East (89%), and North Central (87%) – than in the South.
“Crime/security joins electricity and infrastructure among the three most important problems that Nigerians want their government to address, ahead of unemployment, water supply, education, and poverty,” the report showed its findings.”
