Senator Ben Murray Bruce has said educating the poor is the only way Nigeria can overcome poverty.
The federal lawmaker in his advocacy for education says Nigeria must invest in educating the poor, if it plans to reduce poverty. Ben Bruce also stated that what the government currently allocates to education is too small, if there are plans to lift the country out of the current poverty index.
Speaking via twitter earlier, Senator Ben Bruce advised government to ‘radically’increase spending on education in order to reduce its spending on security.
