ABSTRACT

One of the problems confronting the Nigerian society is its high level of poverty which is evident in both rural and urban areas. Among other things, this study makes bare the causes and effects of poverty among Nigerians. However, the aim of the work is to examine how poverty could be reduced among Nigerians as this problem alarms various governmental and non-governmental organizations such that various poverty alleviation programs have been introduced both in the time past and at present. In this work, the reflections for the reduction of poverty in Nigeria would be done in the light of Deuteronomy 15: 7-18 which among other things highlights the right attitude which should be maintained towards the poor. Understandably, this study employs the rhetoric analysis methodology which is mainly used to study biblical passages that correspond with the form of sayings or statements. Therefore, this methodology is considered most appropriate for this work because the pericope under study contains numerous sayings. Findings from this work indicate that poverty can be reduced among Nigerians if the principles implied by the statements in Deuteronomy 15: 7-18 were followed by Nigerians.





CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1               Background of the Study

Poverty is scarcity of human basic needs or man’s inability to acquire his basic needs for existence due to scarcity of resources. Man’s basic needs are generally understood to include food, shelter and clothing. Therefore, when man is incapacitated to make provisions for his food, shelter and clothing, he is regarded as a poor person. Poverty could affect an individual, a group, a community or a nation. Undoubtedly, poverty with its detrimental tendencies has become a global problem and has also attracted global measures to combat it.

Poverty in Nigeria remains significant as many researches such as the work of Olatomide (2012) reveal that seventy (70) percent of Nigerians are living below the poverty line. Some of the causes of poverty have been identified as unemployment, illiteracy, ignorance, laziness, natural disasters, violence, and indiscipline. The high level of poverty in Nigeria alarms every sector in our society particularly the government as concerted efforts have been made by various administrations to annihilate this anomaly. This work appreciates the efforts of the Federal government which has introduced various poverty alleviation programs such as Operation Feed the Nation (OFN), Structural Adjustment Programme (SAP), Directorate for Food, Road and Rural Infrastructure (DEFRI), Poverty Alleviation Programme (PAP), Poverty Eradication Programme (PEP) but it is glaring that the level of poverty is on the increase......
