Nigeria Ends 2018 With 90.8 Million People Living In Extreme Poverty by MrAnele(m): 10:17am On Dec 28, 2018
Nigeria continues to cement its status as the poverty capital of the world as more and more people continue to slip into extreme poverty.



An estimated 90.8 million Nigerians are living in extreme poverty as 2018 winds down to a close.

It was first revealed in June 2018 that Nigeria had overtaken India as the nation with the highest number of people living in extreme poverty across the world, with an estimated 86.9 million people measured to be living on less than $1.25 a day.

The outlook for poverty alleviation in Nigeria is currently weak. Today extreme poverty in the country is increasing by nearly six people every minute. If current trends persist, we expect this poverty “escape rate” to improve modestly over the next decade, to approximately 3 people every minute. - World poverty clock

According to available data courtesy of the World Poverty Clock, a web tool produced by World Data Lab, that number has increased by nearly four million more Nigerians in just six months.

This is despite the fact that the estimated 643.5 million people living in extreme poverty all over the world has dropped to 592.7 million in the same period.

As of the time of this report, the 90.8 million Nigerians living in extreme poverty constituted a staggering 46.4% of its estimated 195.6 million total population.

This has risen from the 44.2% of the total population that was recorded in June.

Despite the rise, Nigeria's escape rate has improved from -5.8 people per minute in June to -4.5 people per minute in December. However, this falls terribly short of the escape rate target of 14.4 people per minute in Nigeria.

"Poverty has risen in Nigeria, with almost 100 million people living on less than a $1 (£0.63) a day, despite economic growth, statistics have shown.

The National Bureau of Statistics said 60.9% of Nigerians in 2010 were living in "absolute poverty" - this figure had risen from 54.7% in 2004."

extremely poor is anyone living below 50 cents a day and that figure today is over 90 million and climbing daily.. if we took that data for standard poor people living below 5 dollars a day it will be over 170 million ... if Buhari is reducing poverty like you claim then why are 11 people entering extreme poverty every minute under Buhari.

It's your business how you interpret it but the facts of the matter is that under GEJ, Nigeria had 60.9% of her population in extreme poverty. Now it is around 50% inspite of the drastic fall in oil prices. As bad as it is, it's still not as bad as under your hero who also enjoyed tremendous increase in price and 2.2m barrels crude oil produced pet day.

D or E as grades are poor but still better than an F.

If the youths refuse wearing their thinking cap they join the poor Experience is the best teacher

I have noticed that the average Nigerian on the street is extremely frustrated. In public transport or traffic gridlock they abound.

Yet for one reason or the other they cannot identify good or bad leadership.

Gej became acting president in 2009 and full president on may 10 2012 so he was already 2 years in as full president. He also had the benefit of the yaradua FX reserves, ECA savings plus good oil.prices.

Why not tell us? Or you don't know how to use Google?

Let Osinbajo continue to be sharing tradermoni.

I wonder what next level will be like.

Total number of extremely poor people in the world reduced but it increased in Nigeria. We want to beat our poverty record so that no one would catch us.

I decided to focus the tenure he contested for not the one he inherited through circumstace. Even if you include it there is no difference. You see, He met high poverty and reduced it. But buhari has now increased it. What was poverty rate at may 2015 when gej left. That's the main point

Imagine what Nigeria will be in another four years under this government. undecided We have had poor people before now but Nigeria have never been over-whelmed by extreme poverty that it assigned the "poverty capital of the world.

What was the figure in 2015 when Buhari took over?

We know it worsened to 61% under GEJ in 2012. So tell us what the figures were in 2015 so we can know where we are coming from
