PARADOXES AND CONTRADICTIONS: BARRIERS AFFECTING POVERTY ELIMINATION PROCESSES IN BAYELSA STATE OF NIGERIA. PERSPECTIVES FROM YOUNG PEOPLE AND COMMUNITY ORGANISATIONS, USING SOCIAL MARKETING TECHNIQUES.
 

Abstract:
Purpose: This paper examines the extent to which paradoxes and contradictions are affecting the poverty elimination systems, as barriers. It also investigates how these mitigate against poverty eradication efforts. This insight is virtually unnoticed. This paper provides empirical account which highlights linkages between paradoxes and tackling poverty. Methodology/design/approach: Drawing from a mixed-methods research data, this paper uses descriptive analysis to isolate paradoxes and contradictions, which were identified in the main empirical research. Findings: The findings revealed that paradoxes and contradictions are prevalent and pervading the poverty reduction systems with significant impacts. This paper argues there should be clarity in policy-determination and policy-implementation. Value: This new insight could lead to deeper understanding of poverty elimination processes. Importantly, it offers opportunities to save lives. Ultimately, saving lives will improve conditions of living, better quality of life and societal well-being. Originality: These insights have been virtually unnoticed. We know very little. Successful elimination of paradoxes and contradictions will probably inspire significant impetus for change in poverty elimination discourse. This may influence behavioural changes, attitudes and valuesystems, including perceptions may come under critical re-evaluations.
