Poverty reduction is a serious matter that requires serious attention. No doubt, the Federal Government of Nigeria has at different times instituted different poverty alleviation programmes. Yet, evidence shows that poverty is still on the increase rather. In this study we advocate clear and unambiguous identification of the poor and directing such programmes at them. For agricultural programmes Agricultural Revamp Centres (ARC) should be created at clans of each local government where agricultural extension officers should be available to direct and interact with rural farmers for optimum results.
