The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO), a support group of the president has
accused the former Nigeria’s vice-president, Atiku Abubakar was responsible for
poverty ravaging millions of Nigerians and not president Buhari.
In a statement by its Chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke,
BMO noted that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
in the last election is again pushing a false narrative to fool undiscerning
“We are not surprised that the former Vice-President has jumped on a United
Nations Development Programme (UNDP) report issued last month to take a swipe
at a man he clearly considers as his nemesis.
“The UN body had noted that slightly over 98 million Nigerians were living
in multi-dimensional poverty, but, as usual, the PDP presidential candidate did
not fully grasp the details before launching an attack on President Buhari,”
the statement said.
It added: “The report indicated that about 46 per cent of Nigerians were
poor as at today, but Atiku Abubakar needs to be reminded that 60.9
per cent of Nigerians, or 100 million people, were living below the poverty
threshold in 2010, and 120 million in 2012, according to the World Bank, which
is the body that provides a global poverty headcount.
“Interestingly, the period the country had an exponential spike in the
number of people living below $1 a day was during the 16 unbroken years that
the former Vice-President’s party held sway in Nigeria.”
BMO also noted that the PDP stalwart created the pathway for Nigeria’s
struggle with poverty alongside his then principal, Olusegun Obasanjo, with the
less than transparent privatisation he presided over.
