Nigeria is in trouble!

The 2018 'Commitment to Reducing Inequality Index', which x-rays and ranks what governments are doing to tackle the gap between the rich and the poor, ranks Nigeria 157.

With this, Nigeria is at the bottom of the ranking.

Majority are finding it difficult today to make ends meet because Nigeria's wealth is controlled by a few.

Remember that the 2017 Oxfam et al report on the 'Commitment to Reducing Inequality Index' says that the wealth of just 5 Nigerians can end extreme poverty in Nigeria.
It is sad that in the 2018 'Commitment to Reducing Inequality Index', Nigeria is ranked 157 again in the subcategory of spending by government on health, education and social protection.

Another bottom level!
A reading of reports on 'Commitment to Reducing Inequality Index' show three clear ways for reducing inequality: increased spending on health and education & social protection; progressivity of tax policy and protection of labour rights & better minimum wage.
U can assess if a presid. candidate wants to end poverty in 🇳🇬 & tackle inequality by looking at his/her plan & intended spending on health,education & social protection.

That candidate with a better plan on those & an antecedent that shows a will to walk the plan earns my vote.
