Poverty describes a wide range of circumstances associated with need, hardship and lack of resources. It is a relative term depicting deprivations, which result from improper or unbalanced distribution of resources Okeke (2001). The deprivation could be of essential goods and services or a lack of wealth (usually understood as capital, money, material goods and resources). Poverty alleviation means making poverty more bearable. It serves as a pain reliever. However, poverty reduction means making poverty less prevalent (Ike, 2010). It means removal of the causes of the pain. Many past regimes pursued poverty alleviation programs at the utter neglect of poverty reduction. This is giving a man fish-in-order for him to survive. This is because policy initiators viewed poverty simply as deprivation of essential goods and services. Thus attacking it, the attention of government had focused on helping the materially deprived (the poor) to alleviate his/her condition. We do not condemn alleviation but reduction would be more sustainable measure to fight poverty. From the foregoing, it becomes imperative that to reduce poverty, wealth has to be created. Wealth creation is all encompassing, and should be for every home, family community and every local government. Mofuoa (2005) stressed that successful poverty reduction requires sustained wealth creation.
