FG begins process to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty

The federal government has inaugurated an Inter-Ministerial Technical Expert Committee to work out the modalities of lifting 100 million Nigerians out of poverty.

The team will develop a framework of cooperation for all stakeholders’ special intervention under a public-private partnership.

Ministry of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs spokesperson, Julie Osagie Jacobs, said this in a statement at the weekend.

Other terms of reference include the preparation of a template for coordination of inter-governmental policies, projects and programmes.

The commitee will harness sundry opportunities for collaboration and cooperation among all Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) at all levels of governance.

Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Festus Daudu, charged the members to do a good job.

“Your participation and contribution to the work of this committee will enable your name to be written in gold as your contribution to Mr. President’s promise to lift 100million Nigerians out of poverty in the next 10 years,” he said.

The committee has Director, Human Resources, Bassey Etim Ekang, as the coordinator.

It comprises representatives of Ministries of Health; Environment; Labour and Employment; Power; Sports and Youth Development; Water Resources; Humanitarian Affairs; and Women Affairs.
