ESCAPING NIGERIA’S POVERTY TRAP
Can Nigeria escape the poverty trap? The country’s past paints a bleak picture of the future. Despite concerted efforts to address Nigeria’s poverty, successive governments recorded marginal successes. Even the economic growth Nigeria experienced in the early 2010s disproportionately benefitted non-poor Nigerians (World Bank, 2022).
So why is Nigeria’s poverty so sticky? It is hardly a failure to acknowledge that, unchecked, poverty will become Nigeria’s Achilles heel. Neither is it a timidity to implement big ideas. Could the challenge be a faulty understanding of the effective levers to solve the poverty crisis?
In his recent book, “*The Time-Travelling Economist*,” Charles Robertson states that education, electricity, and fertility are the keys to escaping poverty. The book provides several nuggets that challenge conventional economic development and poverty eradication thinking.
Join Charles Robertson and Patrick O. Okigbo III to explore Nigeria’s pathway out of poverty.
