World Bank estimates Nigeria’s soaring inflation and food prices pushed seven million more people into poverty in 2021.

With inflation rising around the world as the global economy recovers from the coronavirus pandemic, soaring prices are having dramatic consequences in countries like Nigeria.

The number of people living in poverty in Nigeria – Africa’s most populous nation with 210 million inhabitants – was already among the highest in the world.

But as Nigeria has been battered by the double economic effect of low global oil prices and the pandemic, the World Bank estimates the country’s soaring inflation and food prices pushed another seven million people into poverty in 2021.

Food prices have increased more than 22 percent since the start of the coronavirus crisis, according to official statistics.

For many people, feeding their family has become a daily challenge.

“Every day, during consultations, there are five or seven children that suffer from malnutrition,” says Emiolo Ogunsola, head of the nutrition department at Massey Street children’s hospital in a poor district in Lagos Island.

“I bet in a few months or a year, more children will be malnourished.”

Even before the pandemic and the surge in food costs, Nigeria’s nutrition figures were alarming: One in three Nigerian children suffered stunted growth due to a bad diet.

As a result, close to 17 million children in Nigeria are undernourished, giving the country the highest level of malnutrition in Africa and the second-highest in the world.

Hmmmm.
Some weeks ago when something like this was pushed to the front page, some sons of perdition said it's a lie and I wonder if they buy things cheap because they are supporting APC or the lifeless chicken in Aso rock.
I won't say more than "EVERYBODY GO COLLECT" by the time this swinging pendulum finally stop swinging and kasala burst proper, everybody go voice out.

I totally agree on this, families are struggling and suffering, while Buhari and his minions are grappling with how to establish a home for cows, banning twitter, and making Kanu the most pressing issue that ever beguiled Nigeria.

Nothing is working in Nigeria, and yet some very wise fools will come here defending rubbish.

Anybody that will bring Ipob, Afonja sentiments to talk nonsense, Na Ogun go kiss una. Politicians, Leaders, even us self, we f*ucked up big time.

The poverty plenty, but I hope we will get sense last last, because it dosent look like we ever will. The poverty tool has worked over the years, it will be time for the 1k and rice or indomie sell your vote madness to occur and there and then our nation will be sold for pennies, I hope we have learnt, I pray so.

Hunger is a weapon of mass destruction.


When we say Buhari has killed many Nigerians, we're not just talking about the use of Army, Police, DSS but also with bad economic policies.

Buhari is a coolossal failure and a monumental disaster!

Buhari is everything and more..that a leader should not be!

DSS will start looking for the reporters and interviewers to shut them up.
This is the most useless and insensitive government Nigeria has ever had.
Why won’t their be hunger when
Fulani heardsmen and Bandits are killing farmers and destroying their farm yet they are being rewarded with monthly salaries for killing and the lifeless man is saying Nigerians are going in to farming. Arrant stupidity.
