The senate spokesperson for the 10th National Assembly, Yemi Adaramodu, has given the assurance that the senate will come up with policies that will boost the economy.
The lawmakers’ mouthpiece reiterated that no Nigerian deserves to live in poverty.
He stressed that the Senate is desirous of making policies that would weed away poverty in the country.
Adaramodu said this while speaking on the Arise TV show about the senate retreat billed to be held in Akwa-Ibom State tagged “Fiscal Policy” on Friday.
He maintained that the figure of Nigerians living below the poverty level should not matter, but the way of taking them out of the realities should, according to the Punch.
He said, “I don’t believe that any Nigerian deserves to be poverty-stricken. No Nigerian is expected to go to bed without about two decent meals daily.
“Every Nigerian youth is supposed to have a job, just as no Nigerian parent is expected not to sponsor their children to school.
“We all know that there is poverty in the land, and the Senate is ready to enunciate policies that will ensure that Nigerians are brought out of it.”
