Nigeria National Social Protection Policy

The National Social Protection Policy is consistent with our national aspirations of becoming one of the top 20 largest economies in the world by 2020. It provides a framework for promoting social justice, equity and inclusive productive growth. It is a transformative tool for addressing poverty, unemployment, social and economic vulnerabilities, inequality, exclusion and other threats to sustainable development. While population growth will continue to be a determining factor for our economic, social and political progress, this Policy will harness available resources into investments in people, our most valuable asset, in order to optimize our human capital potentials.
