Nigeria is the world poverty capital of the world.

The World Poverty Clock named Nigeria the poverty capital of the world last year June when it revealed that Nigeria had 87 million people living in poverty.

The report has indicated that over 91 million Nigerians are now living in extreme poverty and at least three million of them slipped into extreme poverty between November 2018 and February this year.

91.16 million Nigerians were living below a dollar a day as of February 13, 2019.

The President Muhammadu Buhari government had last year rejected the report, insisting that it had created jobs especially in the area of agriculture and reduced poverty.
