Furthermore, the presidential adviser said that data provided to the public ignores individuals working in the informal sector. Ngelale also stated that the NBS lacks the necessary personnel to collect data in all of the country’s nooks and crannies.


He stated,



“I am saying very clearly that the NBS has a serious problem with accurate data till today.

“The same statistics suggested that somewhere in 2014, that the unemployment rate on the nation was eight per cent that is less than 10 per cent… will you suggest anytime in your lifetime in this country, Nigeria, that we are all living in, that out of the adult population in the country, with well over a 100 million people, that 92 million out of the working adults, even worst that..

“The Statistician-General told us that we have a handful of NBS staff. Go to the NBS yourself and see what their employment rolls look like, how many staff do they have to be able to send out to the nooks and crannies of the entire Nigerian federation. They send out a handful of people state by state…”
