"I am happy to note that the process of designing this inclusive poverty reduction strategy recognized and addressed past mistakes as well as laying the foundation for a sustainable poverty reduction through the wide range consultations held at all levels of government, development partners, the private sector as well as the civil society,'' he said.

The President added that the NPRGS would address the underlying causes of poverty.

The major challenge, according him, is to translate his government’s good intention into positive impact of the average Nigerian.
