The United Nations defines ‘youth’, as those persons between the ages of 15 and 24 years and about half of Nigerian population (over 53%) fall under the category of 0 – 19 (Statista.com). This makes Nigeria one of the countries with the youngest population in the world where she ranks 18th. Aside from this, the number of Nigerians who fall under the category of 20 – 59 are way more than those who are sixty and above. All in all, Nigeria has a young, bustling and energetic population and this is a super-power.
