​​​​​​​Background of the study

The issue of youth joblessness and criminal activities in rural areas has, over the course of the past several years, evolved into a major area of interest and worry for the majority of the countries in the globe. It is the goal of these countries to entirely eradicate or, at the very least, significantly reduce the rates of young unemployment and rural crime in their respective countries. According to Omenazu (2016), it is possible that the problem of youth unemployment in Nigeria is a relatively new phenomenon. This is because, in the pre-colonial era, a high level of respect and dignity was accorded to the act of working in order to amass money, but in modern times, the aim justified the means. Even if unemployment had been an issue, it was not nearly as difficult to solve as it is now. As observed by Godwin (2017), he speculated that out of Nigeria's total population of 150 million, 40 million people are currently without work. Young people are disproportionately affected by unemployment since 45 percent of the population is comprised of people aged 15 to 40 years old. Only the working class in Nigeria is capable of tackling the challenge of eliminating young unemployment and rural crime; the ruling class in Nigeria is incapable of finding a solution to this crisis. Nsidibe  (2016), argues that it is believed that over 3 trillion naira has been spent since 2003 simply to battle young unemployment and rural crime in Nigeria. This figure is based on estimates of how much money has been spent. He asserts that The issue is, "Where did all of this money go, and why is this problem still going on?" To fix the problem, the government could acquire a few thousand pepper grinding machines or five thousand motorcycles and give them out to hungry youngsters who number in the millions. These practices are a major contributor to widespread corruption and create opportunities for political patronage. This approach has also been put into practice for about ten years at this point; but, what results has it been able to produce or accomplish? The amount of human and national resources that Nigeria possesses indicates that the country should not experience any form of poverty, much alone the level of young unemployment and rural crime that it does.

According to Onoge (2018), the widespread unemployment among Nigeria's youngsters is one of the primary factors contributing to the growth of the country's street youth population. They are raised in a culture that encourages criminal behavior in rural and urban areas, where they engage in various activities such as petty trading, casual work, stealing, pick pocketing, prostitution, touting, and other illegal activities. The street youths are denied of legitimate means of livelihood. As a result, they grow up in a culture that encourages criminal behavior.
