Buhari Restates Commitment To Lifting 100 Million Nigerians Out Of Poverty


By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, has restated the commitment of his administration to lifting 100 million Nigerians out of poverty within the next 10 years.

Buhari, who spoke on Tuesday via a video message to a United Nations (UN) General Assembly conference, where the Alliance for Poverty Eradication (APE), a programme meant to support poverty eradication initiatives, was launched, reiterated his administration’s readiness to invest massively in education, with significant focus on the girl-child.

According to Buhari, the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Nigerian economy, necessitates the need for the adoption of response stratagems that would not hamper the quality of the lives and livelihoods of Nigerians.
