Unemployment is one of the developmental problems currently facing rural communities in Nigeria. The unemployment rate is a measure of the prevalence of unemployment and it is calculated as a percentage by dividing the number of unemployed individuals by all individuals currently in the labour force. The higher the unemployment rate in an economy the higher would be the poverty level and associated welfare challenges.
70% of Nigerians live in rural areas. The rural sector plays an important role in the generation of national wealth.

Deportation has multiple detrimental effects on individuals who are deported, and on the families and communities, they are forced to leave behind.
The effects of deportation are felt by individuals, families, and communities. Nearly 4 in 5 families screened in family detention centres have a “credible fear” of persecution should they be forced to return to the countries from which they migrated (US Citizenship and Immigration Services, 2016). Many of those deported are forced to return to dangerous, turbulent environments, and deportations have resulted in kidnapping, torture, rape, and murder (Stillman, 2018).
