Ease of Doing Business

"Nurturing Talent, Igniting Potential. Empowering Individuals and Organizations for a Brighter, Skill-Rich Future."

Nigeria is Africa's largest economy and an economic powerhouse on the continent, thanks largely to its rich endowment of oil reserves. But reliance on this finite resource is a double-edged sword; while it has given Nigeria an economic advantage, it leaves the country exposed to the highly volatile global oil market and delays much needed economic diversification.


Fortunately, the country has the potential to tap into another rich resource, one which it possesses in abundance: its people. With an estimated population of 215 million, of which almost 44 percent is aged under 15 years, Nigeria is both the most populous nation in Africa and one of the youngest.1 Furthermore, by 2050 Nigeria’s population is expected to double to over 400 million, making it the world’s third most populous nation.2 The possibility of unlocking the potential of its young and growing population – its human capital – is therefore immense. The World Bank Human Capital Project defines human capital as a combination of the knowledge, skills, and health people accumulate throughout their lives that enables them to realise their potential as productive members of society. The fundamental building blocks of human capital include access to clean water, sanitation, power, health services, and educational opportunities, as well as the chance to acquire modern skill sets and contribute productively to the economy. Many of these essential elements are currently lacking in Nigeria.
