How We Can Empower 100million Nigerians Out Of Poverty — Buhari

Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari has said that a database of poor and vulnerable Nigerians as well as that of unemployed youth was being developed to address the problem of socio-economic inequality in the society.

The President who made the statement during his Democracy Day address in Abuja on Wednesday, added that his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the helms of affairs can conveniently move 100 million Nigerians out of poverty within 10 years.

He added that for Nigeria to progress, a collective resolution to address corruption and foster broad-based prosperity is required to create a country that is not only for a few privileged, but for all Nigerians.

His Words:

“In the face of these challenges, our government elected by the people in 2015 and re-elected in March has been mapping out policies, measures and laws to maintain our unity and at the same time lift the bulk of our people out of poverty and onto the road to prosperity,” he said.

“This task is by no means unattainable. China has done it. India has done it. Indonesia has done it. Nigeria can do it. These are all countries characterised by huge burdens of population.

“China and Indonesia succeeded under authoritarian regimes. India succeeded in a democratic setting. We can do it. With leadership and a sense of purpose, we can lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in 10 years.

“At the heart of inequality and insecurity, is pervasive corruption. When we took office we realised that if you fight corruption, corruption will fight back– and we have seen this at all levels.”

“For Nigeria to progress, a collective resolution to address corruption and foster broad-based prosperity is required to create a country that is not only for a few privileged, but for all Nigerians.’’
