Abstract

Policy duplication accounts for the persistence of poverty in Nigeria.In the quest for the solutions for poverty reduction; this study compares the National Fadama Development Project III and Commercial Agriculture Credit Scheme (CACS).The paper adopts quantitative design using Partial Least Square (PLS) to establish the statistical relationship between the duo anti-poverty programs and poverty reduction.The findings underscore that National Fadama Development Project III is significant to poverty alleviation and most beneficial to the target beneficiaries.However, the relationship between CACS and poverty alleviation was insignificant as a result of systemic failure especially corruption, manifest disrespect of institutional law, apparent impunity vis-a-vis perpetual evasion of justice among the stakeholders. Since the programs focused on a common objective of poverty alleviation and also generate its funds from the same sources, this paper calls for the harmonization of the duo programs to curtail the waste of scarce resource and accord the phenomenon a more desirable attention. The study also recommend for structural transformation of judicial institution to combat corruption and lead a crusade for the restoration of the good virtues that is rooted in public service to enhance a hitch free application of rule of law as a stepping stone to facilitate economic development and poverty alleviation.
