Gov. Yahaya Bello disclosed this while declaring his intentions to run for the 2023 Presidency at Eagles Square Abuja.
He promised to build on the legacy of President Muhammadu Buhari by creating 20 millionaires in the country by 2030.
Bello disclosed that each of the 20 millionaires would empower five other Nigerians.
The Presidential aspirant recalled how reports claimed that over 100 million Nigerians lived in extreme poverty during the administration of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
He noted that the Buhari-led administration reduced the figure to 70 million.
He said: “In 2018, with APC in the saddle that figure has dropped to about 87m people yet Nigeria overtook India as the poverty capital of the world. Just this month, Nigeria through the effort of the President relinquished the title back to India and brought down the figure to about 70m people.
“It is therefore clear that our path to national prosperity lies in pulling millions of Nigeria out of poverty.
“The Buhari administration has a target of lifting 100 million Nigerians out of poverty by the year 2030. A Yahaya Bello presidency will have an additional target of creating 20 million Nigerians millionaires by the same year 2030 with the aim that each of them will empower five other citizens.”
Governor Bello who appreciates the Igbo apprenticeship model said his government when elected and constituted will use same model to drive his administration quest to pull millions of Nigerians from poverty to millionaire.
The youngest Gov whose track record and score card on security is second to none also assured Nigeria of security of lives and Properties if given the mandate by 2023.
