Since the inception of the Millennium Development Goals in the year 2000 in Nigeria there has been a significant shift in the poverty conditions of the poor in the nation. The Millennium Development Goals was introduced into the socio-economic platform of Gombe State in 2007. Since then there has been a rapid transformation in the livelihood of the poor (unreached).
