Company Introduction

History of The National Poverty Eradication Programme of Nigeria.
Between 1980 and 1992, the average poverty incidence in Nigeria increased from 0. 28 to 0. 43 respectively. By 1996, the situation had worsened to an average of 0. 66, (which implied at the time that, out of every 100 Nigerians, 66 were dwelling below the poverty line with great difficulties) . This increasing level of poverty in the Country was despite all the efforts implemented through all the Ministries and Agencies established by Government to fight poverty. Some of the reasons for the low impact or total failure of these structures include:
Poor coordination of activities and absence of effective continuous policy formulation; Lack of sustainability of programme and projects; Absence of achievable target setting; Absence of monitoring, evaluation and impact assessment; Absence of effective coordination, collaboration and complementation between the agencies and among the three tiers of Governments; andDuplication of functions with a resulting unnecessary rivalry among institutions.
The above problems set the agenda for the present administration, thus: streamline and rationalize the functions of core poverty alleviation institutions and agencies; reduce overlapping functions; enhance their effective performance; improve coordination; and improve collaboration with State Governments, Local Governments and International Donor Agencies.
A panel chaired by Ahmed Joda was constituted to address the above. The panel executed their mandate and made recommendations, which included:
That most or all implementation and delivery activities of government on poverty should be left to the statutory ministries so that all efforts are harmonised within the scope of the sector as covered by the ministries;
That an institution which should not be an implementing structure should be established to facilitate the provision of the missing link to enable monitoring of all efforts while allowing for the effective complementation, collaboration and coordination between all stakeholders.
This marked the birth of the National Poverty Eradication Programme
