13% of Nigerians are homeless, this is the highest percentage on the planet.

TVC News Nigeria gives us a report on homelessness in Nigeria.

Nigerians often move to big cities in hopes of finding prosperity and opportunity. However, many of these individuals find themselves struggling to adjust to city life. This can be attributed to a number of factors, including the high Cost Of Living, the fast pace of life, and the lack of social support systems. Additionally, many new arrivals to cities are not educated and able to properly communicate, which can make finding a job and getting around difficult. Most suffer abuse and are forced to work dangerous job for little pay.
