Nigeria has joined many countries that have moved towards improving the efficiency of their decision-making processes through the evidence generated by MPI.
“The consensus around the use of the MPI emerges from different approaches and global agreements, including the Millennium Development Goal (MDGs), which has now been replaced by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which cover the multiple aspects of deprivation at the core of poverty and their inter-linkages. It is, therefore, an honour to join other strong voices to highlight the importance of multi-stakeholder engagement on poverty eradication, zero hunger, quality education, climate action, and inclusion, all of which are central to the evidence generated by the MPI.” ~ Honourable Minister Sadiya Umar Farouq
“Since 2015, this Administration has successfully empowered more than 10 million people out of extreme poverty through the many initiatives of the Government, including the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP), GEEP, Npower, NHGSFP, and many more. Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen, I urge us to continue to join hands together to make extreme poverty, a thing of the past through improved policy and programme decisions made possible from MPI evidence.” HM Sadiya Umar Farouq
