5m Nigerians lifted out of Poverty in 3years, 100m more in 10years – Presidency

President Muhammadu Buhari believes a sense of purpose will ensure that 100 million Nigerians can be lifted out of poverty over a period of 10 years.

It was first revealed in June 2018 that Nigeria had overtaken India as the nation with the highest number of people living in extreme poverty across the world, with an estimated 86.9 million Nigerians measured to be living on less than $1.90 (N684) a day.

According to available data courtesy of the World Poverty Clock, a web tool produced by World Data Lab, that figure has increased to 93.7 million in June 2019.
