Nigeria has one of the highest rates of youth unemployment (23.9 percent in 2011) in Africa and with jobs scarce and the ever-mounting pressure to earn; many young Nigerians between the ages of 15-24 years (about 30% of Nigeria’s population) turn to cybercrime to earn a living.
“Nigeria is a country where students do not study, workers do not work, ministers do not administrate, and where cunning religious clerics hold the order of the day. However, it is terrific for the future of the country to finally discover a fast growing army of young Nigerians – some of Africa’s finest self-made intellectuals, strategic thinkers & career leaders of struggle who notoriously do not rely on the Nigerian government.”
This past year, eStreet.com.ng is focused on addressing the unemployment crisis through Entrepreneurship Development & Supporting Innovation by engaging in expansive regional business plan competitions to select winning proposals by eStreet ‘’Roundtables’’

In addition, eStreet.com.ng announced the recent launch of its affiliate ‘eStreet Brand Ambassadors’
According to Shittu Ibrahim, a student in his final year at the University of Lagos, "Being an eStreet Brand Ambassador has given me the opportunity to work for myself part-time allowing me the opportunity to work for myself but not by myself.”
Joshua Akinbanjo, Director of Promotions & Brand Assets, Glo Nigeria, commented, “We live in a country whose younger generation craves for a little more than shallow purpose-less living, chasing opposite sex & cyber-fraud but don’t do anything for the benefit of society. To the foreigner the perception is chaos – abject poverty, national insecurity, brutal oppression, looting politicians, chronic illiteracy, seasonal labour strikes and the infamous ‘yahoo-yahoo’– for members of the eStreet Network it is not chaos at all. So I feel it soothing to find a growing army of young and career savvy Nigerians who confront misfortune – not by crying, making up excuses & low-esteem – but with a smile taking it in their own style, that is, with humor, swag & a rugged determination to make a difference in their society.”
