White Paper on Nigeria Hiring trends: 2018

Africa’s leading oil producer had been hard hit by falling prices for the commodity, which accounts for the majority of its export revenue thus plunging the country into recession. One of the consequences of the recession was unemployment and layoffs which tend to increase as a way of curtailing expenses.


After seeing its worst recession in 25 years, Nigeria’s economy is limping back to normalcy.  Many believe the country is officially out of recession.  The country is now diversifying its economy to include manufacturing, agriculture and exports and investing in skills acquisition in diverse sectors, stressing on practical applications to reduce joblessness and assist them in finding jobs in Nigeria.


Currently, companies are looking for people who are innovative and entrepreneurial. More companies are hiring and are not deterred by the recent recession as they are able to get highly competent talent with prior Nigeria experience at competitive salaries. What is happening is that those who do not have these required skills are let go while those who have are being sought after and hired. The recruitment landscape is quite promising with employers having an upper hand.

WHO: Nigeria now officially Ebola-free

(The Times of India) Nigeria has not reported any new case of Ebola since 42 days ((twice the disease’s maximum incubation period)) threshold set by the WHO to declare an end to the epidemic. While this is a spectacular success story and shows that Ebola can be contained, the battle will be won when West Africa is also declared free of Ebola


The virus has killed more than 4,500 people across Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone,  till now and has been steadily spreading. All confirmed cases in Nigeria were linked back to the Liberian air traveller who introduced the virus into the country on July 20.“  But Nigeria has been able to contain the virus and fight back to become Ebola free.

WHO to declare Nigeria Ebola free


(Daily Post) The World Health Organization (WHO) will soon declare the dreaded Ebola Virus Disease over in Nigeria. Nigeria recently reported seven deaths due to Ebola but has now has effectively contained the virus and stopped the spread of the disease.


It is, therefore, expected that the World Health Organisation (WHO) will soon officially declare the EVD over in Nigeria.

Nigeria tough on cybercriminals

IT News Africa reports that, THE Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has intercepted 12, 000 scam mails and recovered over £110 million from cybercriminals in the last three years.

The EFCC, with its foreign collaborators had also stopped over 3,870 scam mails emanating from Nigeria and out of it in the last eight months.

Cybercriminals are now leaving Nigeria for its West African neighbours as a result of the determined fight the anti-graft agency is giving them.

The EFCC has secured over 300 convictions of cybercriminals since its inception, adding that more would be convicted after the cybercrime law is passed by the country’s law makers.

The commission’s chairman, Mrs Farida Waziri, said after the United States of America with 65 per cent of cyber criminal activities and the United Kingdom with 9.9 per cent, Nigeria is the next hub of cyber criminals in the world with 8 per cent.
