The growing level of the poverty rate in Nigeria is alarming as the country, according to a report by Brookings Institution, recently overtook India as the nation with the highest number of extremely poor people.

Months after Nigeria took over from India as the poverty capital of the world, the World Poverty Clock created by Vienna-based World Data Lab put the number of Nigerians living with extreme poverty at 88,011,759.

According to the World Poverty Clock, “the outlook for poverty alleviation in Nigeria is currently weak,” with nearly six people slipping into extreme poverty every minute.
