The British Prime Minister who is currently on tour of African countries, recently mentioned that Nigeria has the highest population of poor people in the world.
“Much of Nigeria is thriving, with many individuals enjoying the fruits of a resurgent economy, yet 87 million Nigerians live below $1 and 90 cents a day, making it home to more very poor people than any other nation in the world,” the UK prime minister said.
“I am unashamed about the need to ensure that our aid program works for the UK,” May said, adding that a healthy African economy is a good news for the UK.
“Today I am committing that our development spending will not only combat extreme poverty but at the same time tackle global challenges and support our own national interest.”
“It is in the world’s interest to see that those jobs are created, to tackle the causes and symptoms of extremism and instability, to deal with migration flows and to encourage clean growth,”
