The Vice president of Nigeria, Yemi Osibanjo has said that the Extreme Poverty rate in Nigeria keeps him awake all nights.
“I think what keeps me up at night has to do with extreme poverty. The issue is that the largest number of those who vote for us are the very poor. The promises that government makes to them is that their lives will be better and obviously they are looking at their lives being better in the shortest possible time. I will like to see Nigeria being an industrialised nation in the next 10 years; a very strong middle class and most people living above poverty line.” he said
The Vice president made this known at a dinner and interactive session he had with Faculty members of Harvard Business School(HBS) in Lagos on Tuesday June 18, 2019.
