‘By The End Of 2020, There Will Be Over 110m Poor People In Nigeria’ – Peter Obi Claims
Former vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi has dropped some mind-blowing figures about poverty statistics in Nigeria.
According to him, over 110 million Nigerians will be poor by the end of 2020 and he made this known in a recent PDP Southeast Summit ahead of the 2023 general elections in Anambra.
He stated without mincing words that Nigeria is drifting and collapsing. In his submission, he said;
“Your country is drifting, it is collapsing. And if you don’t do anything, it will set its revenge on you.
The World Bank released a report, go and read that report. This year alone, 11 million Nigerians will fall into poverty.
The 11 million is on top of the 100 million that is already there. That means by the end of this year, Nigeria will have over 110 million people living in poverty. It is important to know that of this 11 million person falling into poverty, eight million are youths.”
