Extreme poverty in Nigeria gives me sleepless nights – Yemi Osinbajo

Last Updated on


Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has said that the problem of extreme poverty in Nigeria keeps him up at night.
The Vice President disclosed this at a dinner and Interactive Session with Faculty Members, Harvard Business School (HBS) in Lagos on Tuesday June 18th.

“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.
