Abstract

  The word poverty is a paramount case in the lives of most individuals in the developing countries like Nigeria. While poverty has been perceived as an economic malaise, social disequilibrium, it is apparent that its effects on the social system make it a debilitating social problem. This explains why every reform policy is geared towards poverty reduction. In fact, poverty reduction is number one millennium developments goal. To what extent has the National Poverty Eradication Programme (NAPEP) affected the level of poverty among women in Kogi state in 2014? This is the question that this research sought answer for. Using descriptive statistics such as tables, percentages, charts, frequencies and the chi-square method to test the hypothesis, the results obtained from the chi-square test revealed that the National Poverty Eradication Programme has significant effect on the level of poverty among women in Kogi state and statistically significant at the 5% level of significance.The research finds out that the poor communication network between the NAPEP agency and the people, inadequate personnel and the corruption that exists in the agency poses as a strong factors limiting the rate of diffusion and consequently, the effectiveness of the programme in  Kogi state. However, certain recommendations were considered valuable for enhanced service delivery; government should employ more personnel and NAPEP staff should be well trained, thereafter, a monitoring committee that will monitor the activities carried out by the agency to prevent the embezzlement of funds put in place by the government to alleviate poverty should be established for efficient service delivery. This is with the view of making the National Poverty Eradication Programme more effective in the alleviation of poverty.
