ABSTRACT:

The review x-rayed some World Bank policies and their implications on the fight against poverty in Nigeria. World Bank policies on education, structural adjustment programme, water privatization, deregulation/liberalization and their implications on the fight against poverty in Nigeria were analyzed.

Based on the findings the following recommendations were proffered, among others: the Nigerian government should seek for ways to increase the funding of tertiary education, by creating a ministry for tertiary education; government should increase the funding of social services in Nigeria.
