Our Plan Is To Lift 100m Nigerians Out Of Poverty – Osinbajo

Buhari administration plans to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in 10 years will not be based on a business as usual approach, but a very simple, common sense strategy that will deliver the results as the President promised, says Vice President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN).

According to him, “I really want us to approach this as much as possible, commonsensically, so that we are able to resolve all the issues and focus on the real progress.

“I want us to look beyond all of what we are going to be doing, there is going to be a considerable amount of paper work, but a lot of common sense is what grows economies. It’s what other countries have done, not really reinventing the wheel. So, I want us to focus on those commonsensical things, so that we can actually move forward.”

Citing the example of Bangladesh where a poverty reduction strategy was also implemented, the VP noted how the country’s manufacturing sector was key.

“Bangladesh actually exports more garment than we export oil,” the VP said.
