Congratulations to the north then.
87% poverty rate in your domain. Which means paltry 13% is left to be shared by the East, West and South.
Yet you guys with your born-to-rule mentality wouldn't mind voting a cow into power so long as he's a nortberner instead of someone with the capacity to better your lots.
My anger is that some who are educated also put themselves in this self delusion helping to 0subjugate the illiterate multitude with tribe and religion.
Believe me, if this country breaks today, the poor will eat the rich in the north.
Ndi born-to-rule, dalukwanu!

it not surprising
what's surprising is the fact that this region is so backward, yet, they dictate what happens in this country.

Because their Leaders have impoverished their minds. And I do not see that going away anytime soon
Because Poverty is a thing of the Mind!

This is caused by the bad decisions of their leaders, they have extended their brainless leadership on the whole country,
With all these indices , they are still building mosques by the hundreds, and sending people to Saudi Arabia, while encouraging their dumb youths to move south.
No country on the planet can develop while tethered to the North, it's practically impossible.

I always laugh when people think that your zone producing president would better the life of people in that area.
We have a weak institution that was built along tribal and religious line.
That's why Osibanjo is deputizing Buhari,
Peter Obi deputizing Atiku.
North is lucky that Nigeria has not separated.
With this their Boko haram of a thing, Isis will turn to Africa once they are dislodge from Syria,
So 87% poverty rate is even a good rate to compare to what the future beholds.
The only solution is not Building flyover but making 80% of their budget go into Basic Education and Secondary Schools. Not Universities.
Anyway what do I know?

This latest report is nothing but the truth. When I first heard that Nigeria had become the poverty capital of the world I immediately knew that dismal indices from the North was the reason for that. The Northern part of Nigeria is a manufacturing ground for poverty, and when you juxtapose that with the pervasive illiteracy and unbridled practice of polymamy in those parts, then you will understand why that part of the country will continue to influence such uncomplimentary ratings for the country.

One useless law maker bragged that he has 4 wives and 27 children and still counting.
That was when i knew that North is irredeemable.
Very soon Nigeria will disintegrate and will see what is called poverty and cannibalism in the North.

Poverty is headquartered in the north, illiteracy is in the north, insurgency and insecurity is a way of life in the north, children left to fend for themselves in the north, almost everything negative indices is from the north yet, the region has produced Presidents and Head of States more than any other regions.
I guess they enjoy poverty and primitive way of living than civilization.

Do you now see that the North rulling for years doesn't translate to anything but hunger, terrorism, mass breeding, illiteracy, fanatics ..
You see that Nigeria presidential seat is cursed, I pity those who wants to seat there.

True, this is why I laugh out loud when people make so noise that Igbos will never rule this country.
When I look at North and how long they have been in power,yet have such level of diseased and poverty ravaged people, I am left with no choice than to conclude that presidency coming to a region simply benefits the president , his families and cronies, and not entirely the people of the state and by extension, the region.
Northwest has produced more presidents than any other region in this country, yet it is the poorest region in the country.
Ogun state has produced President for eight years,and vice President for five years and counting, yet look at Ogun state today.
The president and presidency is simple for his familes, friends and croonies, not necessarily for the benefit of the people of the state, and by extension the region.
We should all demand for good governace, equity, fairness , justice and equal representation in governance irrespective of where the president is from.

Spot on.... The children of the elite embrace western Education and even study abroad
While the poor are used as tools to win elections.... They use religion to make sure they keep breeding like rats to increase their numbers
Most times... These kids dont get to 18 before they are being used to rig elections...

In addition,do you know that only in the South East do we have a state in the South (ebonyi state) that has as much poverty rate as Northern states.Now you know.
I still have a feeling that the North inflates it's poverty statistics.
|Re: 87% Nigeria’s Poverty Rate In North – World Bank by izombie(m): 8:25am On Feb 11|
Fake numbers. They should give us the 2020 report. I bet it's now up to 97%. So long as a northerner is in power the rest of them do not mind dying wretched.

Bro the statistic is spot on, people don't know how poor the north is. When you go to the north you will believe this statistic totally.
Forget about those that come here to share pictures of flyovers and roads in Kano or Kaduna government reserved areas, majority of northerners live in the rural areas. Do you know that Kano municipal is only about 499 square kilometers with a lower population than Ibadan municipal that is over 3080 square kilometers? Most people in Kano lives in their rural areas where poverty is very high.
On average, most northern states get more in allocation than southwestern States but yet states like Osun that gets half of what Sokoto gets in a month is much better both in infrastructure and human development index. Last five years we perform a social experiment where I and three of my friend's tour 4 southwestern States, 3 north-central states, 3 northwestern states, 3 south southern states and 3 southeastern states.
All the southern states and 2 north central states such as a Kwara and Kogi have a high concentration of educated individual and wealth in their rural areas but from Niger state up the story becomes very bleak.

It doesn't really work like that sir, apart from the war-torn northeast most NGO's directly fund project like Polio immunization through the ministry of health and the total value of charity received by these Northern states is meager compared to their monthly allocation
