It’s believed that Nigeria is a very populated country with 36 states, each with its natural endowment, great environment, and diverse cultures.
Due to the increased rate of industrialization, some Nigerian states seem to be more populated than others. And these states offer more employment opportunities due to industrialization than the rest.
One of the best decisions a Nigerian can make is to find a job in a good state. Nowadays, security, ethnicity, cultural disposition and availability of industries affect the jobs that Nigerians opt for.
The fact is looking for a work in Nigeria is the job itself. There is no even distribution of job opportunities across the 36 states in Nigeria. That means your location may matter to get your kind of dream job in Nigeria, and it’s few selected states that can offer such an opportunity.
DAILY GIST has highlighted a list of states in Nigeria where you can get job easily.
