Dr. Betta Edu, the recently appointed Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, unveiled an ambitious Federal Government strategy to bring a staggering 133 million Nigerians out of poverty in a recent announcement.
Following his return to the office on Monday, Education Minister Edu shared this information in a statement. During the discussion, he addressed the chiefs of various ministries’ agencies.
She highlighted in her statement that the Federal Government can only achieve this goal by undertaking numerous interventions and activities aimed at reducing poverty.
In a recent announcement, it was highlighted that the primary goal remains focused on the lofty goal of bringing a staggering 133 million Nigerians out of poverty.
She highlighted her firm belief in the power of perseverance and resolve in a resolute statement, emphasizing that development may be made in stages, one step at a time.
According to a recent assessment by the National Bureau of Statistics, 65 percent of Nigerians are classed as multidimensionally poor. This startling figure, revealed by the NBS, illustrates the country’s severe poverty situation.
Former President Muhammadu Buhari’s lofty ambition to bring 100 million Nigerians out of poverty during his tenure has unfortunately fallen short. Despite the efforts of his administration, this great goal remained elusive and unattainable.
Mr. Edu, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, has recently taken over the position previously held by Ms. Sadiya Umar Farouq. This change occurs as the government strives to address the severe issue of poverty, which continues to damage the lives of many Nigerians.
