Despite Nigeria’s fast-paced economic growth rate, poverty still remains high in Africa’s biggest economy, with over 70 per cent of the population living on $1.25 (N200) or even less per day. 

The recent report by the World Bank on poverty in the world ranks Nigeria third among world’s ten countries with extreme poor citizens. The report states that two-thirds of the world’s extreme poor are concentrated in just five countries: India, China, Nigeria, Bangladesh and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Despite several poverty alleviation and empowerment schemes, interventions have largely failed to overcome extreme poverty in Nigeria.

In a recent event organised by Gaurapad Charities, the Former President of Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria, (PMAN), Bolaji Rosiji, citied the three reasons for persistent poverty in the country, as income inequality, ethnic conflict, and political instability.

He stated that the future of Nigeria rests on transitioning large numbers of people consistently into the middle class and that this socio-economic class has the greatest potential to drive the Nigerian economy and eradicate extreme poverty.

On the platform of Gaurapad Charities, Rosiji stressed that a lot of people have been empowered, where an average person earns a minimum of N500,000 or more a month with its unique business plan.

In what can best be described as show-stopping, Gaurapad Charities took a new dimension during a promo launch held recently at its head office in Maryland, Lagos. This is coming on the heels of her mega promo award ceremony held early this year, where several prizes were won, including brand new an SUVs, all expense paid international trip to New York, Paris and Dubai and a host of other gift items.

The charity, in a renewed effort to better the lives of the common man, has launched another mind-blowing promo, ‘Gaurapad Awoof Galore; Man Must Drive Car’. As explained by the Director of Operations, Mrs. Nike Denis, the objective of the promo is to reward consistent members and bring to reality the dream of owning an SUV. The brand new 2015 Ford Explorer SUVs and the newest model of KIA Cerato greeted the event with thrills. The auto display was the cynosure of all eyes.

According to one of the winners of the last promo, Mr. Joetu Nekaro, “The dream is real! Gaurapad keeps her promises. I was astonished when the winner of the Ford Edge was presented with her award; I thought it was a joke. I also went away with a brand new Generator, Flat screen LED TV, Home Theatre, Split Unit AC and a Double Door Refrigerator, in addition to an all-expense-paid international trip to Dubai.”

Gaurapad Charities was founded by the human right activist, Bolaji Rosiji, with a mission to provide holistic well-being to society through unique and highly effective health care products while creating economic freedom for all involved. The company has grown in leaps and bounds serving over 50,000 members across the nation through its various offices in Lagos, Abuja, Warri and Port Harcourt.
As Denis explained, Rosiji has a passion to create an enabling environment for healthy living and help people achieve financial freedom through Gaurapad Charities unique business plan. She stated that in the next few weeks, the company would be opening a branch in Onitsha, which will be followed by a grand official launch in Accra, Ghana.
