Chapter One


1.1 Background To The Study

The term unemployment came to be known as far back as men realize that he cannot always produce all that he needs and therefore, most have to depend on others to satisfy his desires.

However, as human civilization progressed from one stage to another, the needs of individual also increased from one level to another.

Human history shows that human society has been witnessing transition from one socio-economic system to another such as feudalism, capitalism, socialism and communalism.

With the process of transition is in varying degree from one society to another, it is never absent in any society.

Any socio economic system being practiced any society has its own implications on employment. This is why most early writers on the concept of employment came from capitalist countries and their workers are dated back to industrial revolution period in the 17th century.

Another prominent author that has done extensive work concerning employment is Keynes (1936). he was motivated to write as a result of world economic crisis of 1930’s i.e. economic depression which affected the capitalist countries greatly and resulted in alarming rate of unemployment.

His general theory of employment interest and money later came to be known as ‘’Keynesian Theory’’ which is still widely in use of till date.

In Kogi State, the history of employment as a public problem is dated back to the creation of the state but reach its peak after creation of the state as a result of hopes brought by creation of the state.

Contemporary writers in Kogi State pay little attention to issue of unemployment sine the discovery of cement in commercial quantity, the focus of Kogi State writers mischief as a result of cement discovery which has resulted to their write-up being focused to issues concerning cement such as derivation formula, cement spillage etc most employment generation policies adopted by Kogi State government are mare camouflage than plan with intent purpose to solve the problem on ground.

This is the reason for the failure of these policies and this is responsible for continuous increase in the unemployment rate in most Kogi cities like Dekina, Ankpa, Idah, Ofu etc. where the spill over effects in unemployment such as social vices (i.e. robbery attack, 419 activities, Yahoo boys and prostitution etc) and crimes are on the increases.

1.2 Statement Of The Problems

The lackadaisical attitude exhibited by the government towards the problem of unemployment has worsened the crime situation in Kogi State. As the effort of government is not encouraging in addition, the multiplier effects of unemployment can never be fully mentioned and explained in this research work as the list seems to be exhaustive.

This is because problems are not being properly handled by government in Kogi State over the years. This research work hopes to bring out ways in which solution to this scourge of unemployment can help tremendously in solving the problems.

1.7 Limitations Of The Study

This project work is limited to Kogi State Ministry of Education as the case study and it is hoped that findings of this project will be expanded to other institutions that are involved in employment generation in Kogi State. It is in line with this fact that a bid to achieving any task, one is bound to encounter some problems in stage on stage or the other, some of the constraints in this write up were never envisaged for and it was shocking and surprising to have ever experience such;

Some of the problems faced in the attempt to complete this study include finance, in this period of economic meltdown. The impact of financial constraints on a study of this magnitude can not be over emphasized. This is particularly so when one realize that the cost of transportation, writing materials.

Time constraints. That the researcher has to combine this study with her normal academic work, the gravity of time constraints on this work would be appreciated.

Another constraints is lack of up-to-date information, the researcher was not able to lay hands on materials that contained the current development on employment generation and questionnaire were not properly filled by the respondents despite the instruction given to them.

Despite the above mentioned constraints, the findings of the true picture of issues surrounding employment generation in Kogi State as a whole.
