Popular social media activist, Reno Omokri has sparked a debate on social media as he declared that six Nigerians become extremely poor every minute.
The popular critic made this statement while lamenting about the continued growth of Nigeria’s population and decline of the educational sector.
The critic expressed that a lot of Nigerians are entering into extreme poverty due to the failure of the current administration to focus on education.
He also attested that development of the educational sector in India has been the underlying factor for the development of the Asian nation.
See his tweet below:
Since 2015, Nigeria’s population has increased by 9%. Yet, our 2020 education budget of ₦48 B is just 9% of the ₦492 B we budgeted for education in 2015. It’s the reason 44 people escape extreme poverty in India per minute, while 6 enter it in Nigeria each minute #TableShaker
