0 107

The Ogun government says it has started a survey of households to evaluate the multi-dimensional poverty human development index in the state.


According to the World Bank, the multidimensional poverty measure (MPM) is an index that calculates the percentage of households in a state deprived along three dimensions — monetary poverty, education, and basic infrastructure services.



Olaolu Olabimtan, commissioner for budget and planning, said the state government has hired E-services Nigeria Limited as consultant for the survey.


He said the consultant started work on March 6 in collaboration with the Ogun state bureau of statistics.


Olabimtan said the survey will last for 27 weeks and is expected to guide the state government to properly implement various strategies already earmarked for execution.


“This is in line with the ‘Building Our Future Together’ mantra of the Prince Dapo Abiodun-led administration, which over the years has executed and implemented various strategies cutting across the ISEYA development agenda,” he said.


“In the past five years, under the pillar of infrastructure, our administration has brought development to every ward in the 20 local government areas of the state.


“We have constructed, reconstructed, and rehabilitated over 500 kilometres of roads across all regions in the state in line with the administration’s policy of inclusiveness and determination to abolish erstwhile practices of prior administrations of developing one section of the state at the expense of other sections.”
