Despite having one of the best human resources in the world and enormous mineral wealth, more than 70% of Nigeria's population is still regarded as being in poverty. This suggests that the development of human capital is seen as necessary for Nigeria's fight against poverty. Based on this presumption, this study examined the relationship between poverty reduction in Nigeria and the human capital development. The data for this study was gathered using secondary sources, including relevant books, journals, and the internet. The gathered data was examined and presented in a thematic manner. The study found a significant relationship between the development of human capital and the reduction of poverty in Nigeria, and it suggested that all levels of government as well as non-governmental organizations in Nigeria implement more effective human capital development programs.
