Buhari Regime Begins Measuring Poverty Level Among Nigerians by limcar: 12:46pm On Aug 11, 2021
President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime has launched Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) Survey to measure the level of penury among Nigerians.

Mr Buhari, despite a floundering economy and fiscal crisis amid worsening
insecurity, has vowed to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty.

The World Bank noted , however, indicated that more Nigerians are falling into the
poverty hole than are being lifted out of it.

The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs,
Disaster Management, and Social Development inaugurated the MPI on
Tuesday. Sadiya Umar Farouq, in a statement by her media aide Nneka
Anibeze, said the MPI survey was inaugurated virtually.

”With the MPI, Nigeria has joined many countries that have moved towards
improving the efficiency of their decision-making processes through the
evidence generated by MPI,” the minister stated. “The consensus around the use of
the MPI emerges from different approaches and global agreements, including the Millennium Development
Goal (MDGs), which has been replaced by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to cover the multiple aspects of
deprivation at the core of poverty and their inter-linkages.”

She noted that by inaugurating the survey, the federal government joined other “strong voices” to highlight the importance of
multi-stakeholder engagements on poverty eradication, zero hunger,
quality education, climate action, and inclusion.

Ms Farouq noted that Mr Buhari’s regime hadbsuccessfully lifted more than
10 million people out of extreme poverty through several initiatives, including
the National Social Investment Programme.

“This aspiration takes into cognisance the country’s current estimated population
of about 200 million people, as well as the need for better evidence for programming,”
the minister further explained. “The ministry, therefore, stands ready to
collaborate with differentngovernment agencies, donornorganisations, and privateninvestors to shape policies
and drive real impact in the use of MPI data.”

She noted that this would foster government accountability to citizens
through improved multi-sectoral interventions targeted at the root of
deprivations.

Ms Farouq stated that the ministry would collaborate closely with the National
Bureau of Statistics (NBS) to conduct regular multidimensional poverty measurements alongside monetary measures at both national and sub-national levels.

This was ”to ascertain the true poverty status of Nigeria and use the findings to shape policy and programming,” she stated.

Now they agree they have caused so much poverty to Nigerians? What are they measuring when they have made Nigeria the world's headquarters for extreme poverty and other worse indices of humanitarian and democratic development?

Why not provide good governance that will facilitate investors interest, increase direct foreign investment, raise the GDP, improve the economy income, income acquisition, standard of living hence start revert the abject poverty level pervading this nation?
