Kick Against Child Poverty in Nigeria!

About 90 million people – roughly half Nigeria’s population – live in extreme poverty, according to estimates from the World Data Lab’s Poverty Clock. Around June 2018, Nigeria overtook India, a country with seven times its population, at the bottom of the table. Put in another context, “if poor Nigerians were a country it would be more populous than Germany”. Almost six people in Nigeria fall into this trap every minute – sad!

Nevertheless, no matter what the arguments might be, at the root of poverty lies the deprivation of people’s access to necessities such as food, healthcare/sanitation, education and assets! Moreover, the evidence – including from India – shows that solving these issues generally lifts populations out of extreme poverty.

Nigeria, and quite honestly the majority of Africa, is poverty-stricken because of a succession of incompetent and, more importantly, corrupt governments. Nigeria is one of the richest countries of a continent that has more than its fair share of the world’s natural resources therefore it is apparent that money, clearly, isn’t the problem… good governance is! The idea of a Government serving the people in Nigeria appears to be very alien from every indication – rather, they are serving themselves. Investments from wealthy countries around the world to assist is embezzled and misappropriated by the powerful and wealthy, leaving nothing for the people for whom these investments were intended.

Another sad truth is the parents who give birth to children they cannot take care of thereby subjecting them to all sorts of child abuse. Bringing children in to the world when there is nothing to take care of them is even sadder.

It is against this background that Blue Baby Support Initiative is organising the maiden edition of “Kick against Child Poverty in Nigeria”. The challenges of an average African child are enormous and central to these problems is poverty. The socioeconomic wellbeing of Nigerians is necessary for a prosperous nation. BBSI is willing to work with the 3 tiers of Government, UNICEF and other Children Welfare NGO’s to make this a reality!!
