The presidency has described as false and suspicious the recent report by the African Development Bank (AfDB) on Nigeria’s poverty reduction efforts.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr Reuben Abati, said that the report was “devoid of truth and political’’.
According to Abati, the AfDB’s report came barely a month after the UN gave an award to Nigeria for its efforts at reducing poverty significantly in the country while the Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO), a UN body, at its 38th Session in Rome in late June gave an award to Nigeria as one of the nations that made significant progress in reducing hunger.
Abati said that such a negative report from the AfDB some weeks after the FAO award was “suspicious and laced with falsehood and political’’.
