"Nigeria Country Profile: Human Development Indicators"


"...The HDI represents a push for a broader definition of well-being and provides a composite measure of three basic dimensions of human development: health, education and income. Nigeria's HDI is 0.459, which gives the country a rank of 156 out of 187 countries with comparable data. The HDI of Sub-Saharan Africa as a region increased from 0.365 in 1980 to 0.463 today, placing Nigeria below the regional average. The HDI trends tell an important story both at the national and regional level and highlight the very large gaps in well-being and life chances that continue to divide our interconnected world."

Quite a pity.  Nigeria is not doing much in the area of human capital development yet it is one area that holds the key to our economic growth.
