Poverty in Nigeria - Causes, Manifestations and Alleviation Strategies

Poverty in Nigeria - Causes, Manifestations and Alleviation Strategies

BOOK by Mustapha C. Duze, Habu Mohammed & Ibrahim A. Kiyawa

Adonis & Abbey, May 2008

The general prevalence of poverty in Nigeria is paradoxical because the country is one of the biggest oil-producing countries in the world, yet 70% of the population lives on less than US$1 a day.

This book by Mustapha C. Duze, Habu Mohammed & Ibrahim A. Kiyawa raises a number of questions:
-What are really responsible for the wide prevalence of poverty in Nigeria in the midst of plenty?
-How is poverty manifested in the country?
-What alleviation strategies are in place?
-How effective are they?
-And what are the implications of all these for the country's democracy project, political stability, nation-building and development discourse?

Contributors to this volume address these questions and provide insights into some of the central issues in the discussion of poverty, including how the poor themselves struggle to cope or adapt to their condition. Using multidisciplinary perspectives, the contributors critique the current alleviation strategies and recommend more viable and better- targeted approaches that will sharply reduce the incidence of poverty in Nigeria.
