With an average of 2,124 hours per worker yearly, Nigerian workers are the second-most arduous workers in the world, behind Mexican workers.


According to a research released on Tuesday, June 20, 2023 by the World of Statistics, the most populous country in Africa has a workforce that is more diligent than those of nations with strong economies, such as the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, and others.


Nigeria also immediately became known as the most diligent nation in Africa as a result of the survey.

According to the survey, workers in Mexico, who topped the list, only had four more hours per year than Nigerians (2,128).


In Nigeria, the majority of public and private employees are required to put in eight hours a day, which could be from 8 to 4 or 9 to 5 on weekdays.

As a result of the possibility of shift work on Saturdays or Sundays, several organizations, including media outlets, hospitals, security firms, and manufacturing businesses, need their employees to work extra days and hours.


Workers like market ladies and other traders may put in up to ten hours a day in an informal atmosphere.

With an average of 1,513 hours per year, South African workers rank second on the Dark Continent, well down the list at number 36.


Nigerians work 2,124 hours a year, which indicates they spend at least five hours a day working productively, as opposed to their South African counterparts who put in four hours.
