According to Festus Keyamo, spokesperson for President-elect Bola Tinubu, state governors and local government chairmen are to blame for the multidimensional poverty in Nigeria.

In response to @NigerTrump’s tweet, Mr Keyamo tweeted on Saturday, explaining that the Buhari administration had commissioned the study on multidimensional poverty in Nigeria and intentionally released the results. He clarified that the responsibility of addressing such poverty lies with state governors and local governments as they are responsible for providing basic necessities like clean water, primary health care, education, and accessible rural roads for commerce.
Festus Keyamo, spokesperson for President-elect Bola Tinubu, has stated that state governors and local government chairmen are responsible for multidimensional poverty in Nigeria, in response to a Twitter user who confronted him with the fact that the Buhari regime, in which he serves, has plunged 130 million Nigerians into multidimensional poverty.
Keyamo claimed that the study that showed this was commissioned and released by the Buhari regime to highlight the fact that tackling poverty requires the cooperation of different stakeholders and is not just the responsibility of the federal government. He argued that basic necessities of life like clean water, primary health care, and primary education are outside the constitutional obligations of the Federal Government and are the responsibilities of sub-national governments like State and local governments.
The 2022 Multidimensional Poverty Index survey by the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics indicates that 63 per cent of persons living in Nigeria (133 million people) are multidimensionally poor. Nigeria displaced India as the world’s poverty capital in 2020, and its debt profile is projected to hit N77 trillion before President Buhari leaves office in May.
