South Africa, Lesotho, Seychelle, Namibia, Mauritius are visa free to Republic of Ireland but an average citizen of these countries cannot afford to buy air ticket to Dublin.

From your comment you've never been to the north.

Perhaps you are generalizing because of those cobbler Mallams and beggers you see on the southern streets begging for alms. That alone would not give the true picture of northern Nigeria.

Places like

Kaduna
Kano
Gombe
Yola
Bauchi
Jos
Mina etc are far better than some of the southern states I've been to.

Even Maiduguri is ahead of some southern states. Forget about what media have been feeding you with. Maiduguri is a beautiful city in spite the insurgency.




those states cannot survive without federal allocation which is mostly derived from oil sector

You hardly see citizens of these countries risking their lives for better life in Europe and you will see Nigerians who their country has the biggest market in Africa trekking to Europe for better lives. I am 100 percent sure you still see many Nigerians living in these countries

How is Nigeria ranked among top poorest in the world but not top poorest in Africa? I don't believe this list. Forget GDP, in terms of standard of living, Nigeria is one of the WORLDS top poorest coumtries.
There's a difference between a country being poor and a country being the poverty capital of the world.

A country being the poverty capital of the world is when the country (ie Nigeria) has the highest number of people living in poverty in the world while a country being poor is when the country lacks the resources to develop.

Nigeria has resources, She's not so "poor" but she has the highest number/percentage of poor people in the world

It's so sad to think I could read some comment here wishing their country in on the list. The lot with this impression are clueless and with zero patriotism.. you don't even value what you have..

Per Capital Income for Nigeria is above $2,000 even if the country is hard at the moment, some lazy people hide under the country is hard because they are not making any effort to improve their lives.

How many graduate is in real sense employable ? Not in this country that most graduate are consumed with the sense of entitilement as if they can take the degree to bank in exchange for millions of Naira. The reason they went to school is to solve the problem but instead join the long cue for white caller job.

Most poor people are poor in this country because they lack the will to be creative and refused to open their minds to opportunities around them.

But I'm not shying away from the fact that there are situations and circumstances beyond control some times but how we choose to handle it determine what will happen next in our lives.

Bros, personally I am not one to generalize, not least because while I have personally been several places in the North, I would NOT consider myself an authority on life in the North. Nonetheless, it’s not about a handful of cities (such as the ones you have listed) and/or a few rich folks or feudal families substantively isolated in (and sometimes insulated from) the midst of jarring poverty, illiteracy and slums. It’s about an estimated 92% poverty rate in Zamfara and an estimated 80+% poverty rate in a supposedly “rich” state like Kano (2016 UN estimates, and also figures recently recited by the Emir of Kano), as opposed (for instance) to an estimated less than 10% poverty rate in Lagos (same 2016 UN estimates). It’s about the millions of Almajiri children roaming the streets (even in the cities that you listed such as Kano and Kaduna), the shockingly high infant mortality rate (often the product of early marriage of largely uneducated girls), and so many other relatively more OBJECTIVE criteria (with the caveat however that I am personally suspicious of any figures/data in Nigeria). Unfortunately, we will never be able to begin to properly address our problems and shortcomings unless and until we recognize and acknowledge same.

we obviously have different standards for what makes a country wealthy. I don't care how much a country generates in revenue, if all that money goes to a few at the top while the vast majority of its people languish in poverty, then that country is POOR. By my standards Nigeria is poor and you are a slowpoke.

See this abo.ki, continue playing the Ostrich while the north continues to decay. Poverty prevalence rate for North East and North West is at an alarming 97% yet you are here saying trash. You think using oil money from Niger Delta to build roundabouts, mosques and roads in the North is enough to turn around its deplorable situation?? That Nigeria is today regarded as the poverty capital of the world is solely due to the north! Even Sanusi Lamido raised alarm and said that poverty in Nigeria is a northern phenomenon. Are you more educated or informed than the former CBN Governor and current emir of Kano?? Continue encouraging almajiri system, primitive ideology, Islamic fundamentalism and wicked exploitation of your masses by your elite and soon, your poverty rate will reach 99.9%. It is even the Southerners in the North that is helping your local economy otherwise it would have been worse. With the menace of boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen ravaging your region, I see no hope for you guys.
