Nigeria Now The Country With The Highest Level Of Poverty – Yemi Alade Responds

Nigeria is a country with lots of poor people in it. And that fact has now gotten for itself international recognition.

Nigeria has now taken over as the nation with the highest number of extremely poor people, a report by Brookings Institution has shown.

According to Vanguard News:

The report read: “According to our projections, Nigeria has already overtaken India as the country with the largest number of extremely poor in early 2018, and the Democratic Republic of Congo could soon take over the number 2 spot.

“At the end of May 2018, our trajectories suggest that Nigeria had about 87 million people in extreme poverty, compared with India’s 73 million. What is more, extreme poverty in Nigeria is growing by six people every minute, while poverty in India continues to fall.

“In fact, by the end of 2018 in Africa as a whole, there will probably be about 3.2 million more people living in extreme poverty than there is today.

“Africans account for about two-thirds of the world’s extreme poor and that If current trends persist, Africa will account for nine-tenths by 2030.”

“Fourteen out of 18 countries in the world—where the number of extreme poor is rising—are in Africa.”

    So it Turns out that Nigeria has finally won first position in SOMETHING!

    Just the other day,I randomly said that i couldnt help but notice how it seems poor people are getting poorer .People are not looking well at all! Things are not looking better,There is so much suffering and bitterness in the world and Nigeria is now the FACE OF POVERTY.

    The business that are thriving now are the ones we used to look down on ,Professional Makeup Artists,Photographers,Wig Makers,Tailors etc.

    We are literally empowering each other! Our economy isn’t getting better because the government isn’t investing in HUMAN RESOURCES;THE PEOPLE.
    Money is in circulation but only at the top! The Economy can never be balanced ! Invest in your People Nigeria! Empower worthy youths with loans.
    Make Water , electricity,Transport and security available for the poor and EVERYTHING WILL TURN AROUND QUICKER THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE!
    My prayer is for God to Hand pick a worthy leader for us come 2019! He did it for israel when they cried for a King,Please do it for Us.

    But then again,What do I Know?

    I have faith in Nigeria ,We have turned nothing to something.Imagine if we had EVERYTHING!! …WE COULD MAKE ANYTHING!
