Disclosing this at an event organised by African Venture Philanthropic Alliance, AVPA, and IBAN, tagged “African Policy Road Show: Building Robust Policies for Increased Social Investment & Inclusive Business,” Osinbajo said lifting 100 million Nigerians out of poverty was possible but noted that it required human capital, restored growth, investors, and micro economic policies, among others.
