Lagos - Nigeria's domestic unemployment rate may rise by 2% in 2014, reports ThisDay.
In a report published by Financial Derivatives Company Limited (FDC), a Lagos-based financial advisory firm, Nigeria’s jobless rate is likely to approach 32 percent in the coming months as the economy fails to grow quickly enough to employ people rejoining the labor force.

The country’s Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is also expected to decline to $4.8 billion in 2014.
