"7 Out of Every 10 Nigerians Live Below Poverty Level!' - Presidency

When Alumni of NIPPS visited Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo in Aso Rock he had this to say,
“This is the main challenge”.
“When you look at the economic and social policies, and you look at the level of illiteracy in parts of the country, some are extremely bad and some with cases of about 80% or 90% of children out of school, and other cases of unimaginable decayed infrastructure... governments have not been accountable to the people, otherwise policies should have roots in the real conditions of the people... policies that don’t seem to have solutions that truly reflect the understanding of the question of poverty in Nigeria.... how do I get a meal, how do I get healthcare and how to send children to school... I want the Institute to think about this."
