133 million Nigerians are living In Poverty - FG by fergie001: 1:27pm On Nov 17, 2022
The Federal Government has disclosed that 63 percent of persons within Nigeria, 133 million, are living in poverty.

The figure was presented during the launch of Nigeria’s Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) Survey in Abuja on Thursday.

It was conducted by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), the National Social Safety-Nets Coordinating Office (NASSCO), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI).

Daily Trust reports that the measure used to calculate the figure was based on Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) with five components of health, living standard, education, security and unemployment.


The survey, which sampled over 56,000 households across the 36 states of the Federation and the FCT, conducted between November 2021 and February 2022, states that 65 per cent of the poor, 86 million people, live in the North, while 35 percent, nearly 47 million live in the South.

It identified Sokoto State as having the most poverty levels across States, with 91 percent while Ondo has the lowest with 27 percent.

Speaking at the event, President Muhammadu Buhari said the index was adopted because it provides ways poverty could be identified and tackled with policies.

Buhari was represented by his Chief of Staff, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari.

The report added that “over half of the population of Nigeria are multidimensionally poor and cook with dung, wood or charcoal, rather than cleaner energy. High deprivations are also apparent nationally in sanitation, time to healthcare, food insecurity, and housing.”

“In general, the incidence of monetary poverty is lower than the incidence of multidimensional poverty across most states. In Nigeria, 40.1% of people are poor according to the 2018/19 national monetary poverty line, and 63% are multidimensionally poor according to the National MPI 2022.”

Lol .... So despite repeated claims by government of moving 100m Nigerians out of poverty every passing year, we still have such number of Nigerians living in poverty ?

What then is the country population ?

Hmmm! This is own goal. So I don't need to argue even though the figure is relatively low.

Another admission of it own failure.Buhari-led APC FG have won another inglorious record for Nigeria.After hyping of lifting 100M Nigerians out of poverty by 2025 which they still have about 6 months to go. grin

Hope this is part of the fulfilment of the APC promises that Lai Mohammed and Abdullahi Adamu was talking about in Jos yesterday. Abi this is what made angry Jos resident to stone and scatter APC campaign material? Urchins make una respond.

According to APC chairman, they have delivered on the change they promised

The change is still taking so many people into poverty as you are reading

Kidnapping that used to happen in movies is now a daily occurrence

Yet APC wants to continue

For those campaigning for APC

Is your life better today than it was in 2015

Suffer nor dey tire you

The north that feels the bite of poverty would end up giving votes to people can continue to put them in poverty because of tribe and religion


When sapa show, e nor go ask which religion and tribe you are before e siddon cross leg for ur house

This is a direct consequence of wastage of our collective patrimony.

If Nigeria should cut waste this number will go down by more than half.

Tell me what Umahi is doing with Governor's lodge in Abuja? Ebonyi is one of the poorest states in Nigeria.

So many Governors that took private jets to Jos can't pay salaries as at when due. This is really worrisome. This is why insecurity is on the rise.

In other words:
"We put 133 million Nigerians into poverty" - APC

After seeing APC government openly admitting that they have failed woefully, some idiots will still want to vote for them due to tribalism, party loyalty, and selfish interests. Stupid and senseless sets of people.
