BACKGROUND The Almajiri community of Ibadan is essentially made up of individuals from both ends of the age spectrum, who live off begging. The impoverished community migrates from the Northern Nigeria down south to form communities of individuals dependent on alms from members of the larger society. It was expected that the deprived economic status of the Almajiri people would predispose their children to malnutrition - an association seen regularly- and it was the purpose of this study to determine if this association between poverty and malnourishment truly exists in this community and to determine the extent of such an association. [...]

From the current socio-economic situation in the country and a dearth of meaningful change, we do not seem to have leaders as seen in this context but merely short-sighted individuals who have not effected any positive change but have, so far, acted out of selfish interest without care or interest to the masses whom they govern.

BACKGROUND On September 25, 2015, the 193 member countries of the United Nations adopted a set of 17 Global Goals which they believe will drive the complete transformation as well as the sustained development of our beloved Planet by the year 2030.
