President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday inaugurated the National Poverty Reduction with Growth Strategy (NPRGS) with Vice President Yemi Osibanjo as the Chairman.
According to the President, the program seeks to lift 100 million Nigerians out of Poverty in ten years.
The President said, if India was able to lift up to 271 million people out of Poverty between 2006 and 2016 then surely Nigeria can also lift 100 million Nigerians out of Poverty in ten years.
“This program seeks to address the most challenging issues and will provide a framework for a smooth operation rather than disruptive approaches been experienced in the past.”
