Issues Responsible for Poverty in Nigeria under the direction of FG – Peter Obi

Labor presidential candidate Peter Obi said on Sunday that the issues responsible for the country’s high poverty rate are within the jurisdiction of the federal government.

Obi, who made the revelations on Arise TV’s presidential town hall series Sunday night, explained that issues of security and “financial viability” are the responsibility of the federal government.

The former Anambra State Governor said that if the federal government secures the nation and provides a conducive environment for investors, the poverty rate will decrease.

“Most of the things that cause poverty today are within the purview of the federal government. He said.

Recall that last week the federal government blamed state governors for the inevitable backwardness of communities in local government areas.

The Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) said in its response that the inability of the federal government to secure the country is responsible for the high rate of poverty.

The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) announced in November that 133 million Nigerians suffer from multidimensional poverty.
