4. Gain 21st Century skills.
5. Provision of well paying jobs

What other ways can we reduce poverty for ourselves and others? Any suggestions?
you're not precise in any of these.

Are you listing what an individual can do to get out of poverty or what the country(general populace) must do?

There's a mix up there, your points make sense but directed at who exactly

No 9 be proud of your country for once in your life. When you love your country you start having positive thinking towards it's affairs,that's how self application emergest.
That's the major problem of this country, unpatriotic citizens. Any small thing happens and they're off trying to relocate to another man's country without any spirit of affiliation for what they're living behind, it's quite unfortunate.

One of the best way to do that is share the country. The unproductive zones will sit-up

Strict meritocracy and getting rid of federal character system.

Increasing the minimum wage will not alleviate poverty. What Nigeria needs is for the government to create and provide necessary amenities needed to stimulate the economy.

Good roads, steady electricity, security of lives and property, effective judicial system and good education.

Number one on your list should be TACKLING INSECURITY. without security no investor will be willing to bring funds to Nigeria. 2 EDUCATION! Proper education will see people reason differently and gain the necessary skill to achieve success. 3 ELECTRICITY. With constant electricity, the profit returns of companies will increase so they have more money to either increase salaries or reduce cost of goods which will make your salary worth more because inflation will reduce. Every other thing you stated above is equally valid

No 1 Strict meritocracy and getting rid of federal character system.

No 2 Punishment of those contributing to overpopulation.

No 3 Secular government. Government has no business promoting any religion.

No 4 Restructuring and giving greater economic and developmental responsibility to regions.

This possible where the different ethnicity share the same vision. As it stands now if we want to make up our minds on every point you raised it will be destroyed by the different vision we carry- the vision of our respective ethnicity. And I say Nigeria does not have a vision as a country but the different nation within the country have.

That's a super valid point, we have to stop sacrificing meritocracy on the alter of mediocrity, that is why we have crooks as government officials, if only someone with this type of mindset will be allowed to rule the country, but no,the citizens will rather sell their votes for a stipend, that's why I said Nigerians are the only problem this country has if not, how in God's name did buhari became the president of this nation for the second time.
