105 million Nigerians are now extremely poor – new report on global poverty

A new international study has shown that more and more Nigerians have become extremely poor.

More than 105 million Nigerians are in extreme poverty, according to figures released by the World Poverty Test.

As of September 2020, a total of 40.1% of Nigerians lived in extreme poverty.

However, that number changed dramatically in less than two months.

Information from data released Thursday shows the negative impact of the coronavirus pandemic on living conditions in the country.

The total population of Nigeria is 205 323 520 people, of which 105 097 856 people, which is 51% of the territory of the district.

51% of Nigerians now live on less than $ 1.90 or 855 Nigerians a day.

The data also show that more men in Nigeria are very poor than their female counterparts.

Some 53,133,553 million men live below the poverty line, and 51,564,303 women are also in extreme poverty.

The model also provides a target airspeed that Nigeria must achieve in order to avoid extreme poverty: it is set at 0.3 people per second.

However, current figures show that Nigeria is falling short of this goal: -4.4 people per second are escaping poverty.
