Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that a Nigerian man with two wives and three children has lamented the hardship he is currently going through under President Muhammadu Buhari's administration.

Speaking with Legit TV, the unidentified man said he does not have a good job, adding that if his life gets better he will marry another wife.

He said he was a farmer in the north but he decided to come to Lagos for greener pastures because he wasn't allowed to continue with his farm work in Maiduguri, Borno state.

Legit.ng had also reported that despite the COVID-19 pandemic, some Nigerian youths are demonstrating potentials by working to create solutions to education challenges in their communities.

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) co-hosted a 3-day virtual bootcamp Youth Challenge.

The youth challenge was implemented by SAED Connect, a youth empowerment accelerator who guided the participants in the co-creation process.

Nigeria is one of 41 countries taking part in this challenge, which was launched in February 2020 for young people living in Lagos slum communities and the conflict affected state of Borno.
