1) We will be busting the lies told by PDP agents.

On the Millions of Poverty stricken Nigerians, it has been established by facts, figures and publications that the Poverty was worsened in the Era of PDP.
The party left a wake of destruction behind, and impoverished Nigerians.
2) In January 2012, then British PM David Cameron mentioned Nigeria as the elucidative example, during his World Economic Forum speech, to highlight "The Problems of Transparency and Corruption in the world".…
3) In the speech, Cameron said, “Last year (2011) Nigeria oil exports were worth almost a HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS. That is MORE than the total net aid to the whole of sub Saharan Africa, yet in 2012, ...
4) ...according to NBS reports & BBC:
"Poverty has risen in Nigeria, with almost 100 million people living on less than a $1 (£0.63) a day, DESPITE Economic growth, statistics have shown.
60.9% of Nigerians in 2010 were living in “ABSOLUTE POVERTY” –
5) ...this figure had risen from 54.7% in 2004 (which means PDP took the poverty to the Next level).

February NBS report for 2011, Vanguard: 112 million Nigerians are POOR going by the Economic situation in the country in 2011.…
6) 112 Million Nigerians are Poor:
12.6 million are moderately poor, while 100 Million are in ABSOLUTE POVERTY.
7) In 2013, The World Bank country director for Nigeria, Marie-Francoise Marie-Nelly, said that 63% or 100Mn Nigerians were destitute, living below the poverty line. In her words, “1.2 billion people live in destitution (around the world) out of which 100 million are Nigerians.
8) Which means while PDP made about a $100Bn from the sale of oil in 2011, in 2012, Nigerians accounted for 9% of the World's poor.
9) ”Between 2004 and 2010, inequality in Nigeria significantly WORSENED, according to Oxfam, with the upper class benefiting from dubious TAX WAIVERS and LEGISLATORS receiving earnings that were among the HIGHEST in the world.…
10)... The number of people living in poverty, meanwhile, increased from 69 million in 2004 to 112 million in 2010, despite an average economic growth of more than 7%. In the same period, the number of millionaires in Nigeria increased by 44% - OXFAM
11) In 2014, a report by the former minister of finance, Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, found the Nigerian Govt had lost approximately 800bn Naira (£1.9bn) to tax waivers and concessions to businesses and corporations between 2011-2013...
12)... The report by Madam NOI concluded these waivers led to NO MEASURABLE BENEFIT for the Nigerian economy.

13. So #LetsGetNigeriaWorkingAgain is a false CATCHPHRASE. Let's not fall for that.

As can be evidenced in this video, in our years of Prosperity, people were seen scrambling for Rice & money. This is PDP's version of POVERTY ALLEVIATION: Weaponizing poverty for votes & support.
