    The number of Nigerians living on less than $1 per day has increased since 2004 despite economic growth in Africa's top oil producer, the National Bureau of Statistics said on Monday.

    "It remains a paradox... that despite the fact that the Nigerian economy is growing, the proportion of Nigerians living in poverty is increasing every year," head of the bureau Yemi Kale said in a statement.

    He said "51.6 percent of Nigerians were living below US$1 per day in 2004 but this increased to 61.2 percent in 2010."

    The bureau's latest report makes clear that income inequality, a chronic problem in Africa's most populous nation, is worsening, according to Kale.

    Poverty is a world problem not only of Nigeria.We humans have got to work up and dismantle the already very established Demonic-Human(elite) agenda led by the US to dominate the world.They are up to it and are using poverty as one of their weapons.If we don't work up,we are finished.
