The President made the reaffirmation on Tuesday during a meeting with the Presidential Economic Advisory Council (PEAC) at the State House in Abuja.
Speaking at the meeting, which was attended by the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Buhari agreed with the Council that the country required a poverty reduction strategy that will usher in a “rapid, sustained, sustainable and inclusive economic growth”.
In a short speech after the presentation of the report on national poverty reduction strategy developed by the PEAC, Buhari requested the PEAC to present the document to the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday as part of the consultation process.
He also agreed with the Council the ambitious program of lifting 100 million Nigerians out of poverty is a challenging one but one that can be achieved.
The President wondered what became of the nation in the past, “with all the resources available to it” that no such coordinated, holistic agenda on poverty reduction was ever contemplated.

A safe society is better than a developed society with no security Mr President. What the people need now is to be able to go to bed and sleep with their eyes close,they are not asking for jobs,they are only asking for that society where they can go to their farms without fear.
