Government asset sales will benefit Nigerians Greatly – according to the Finance Minister


Zainab Ahmed, the Minister of Finance, has said the sale of the assets of the Federal Government to fund the 2021 budget will benefit Nigerians and help stimulate the economy.

Ahmed said this on Friday morning, January 22, when she appeared on TV channels.

Recall that Ahmed revealed during the budget presentation on January 12 that the Federal Government will sell some of its assets and use the funds generated in the 2021 budget to fund the deficit.

Zainab said in her chat with Channels TV that a lot of government assets are currently moribund and in their current state provide little or no value to Nigerians.

There are some dead government assets that can be sold to the private sector to be reinstalled for the benefit of Nigerians and put to use.

So we are looking at various categories of government assets that have not been able to manage, that is lying down and in some cases even completely rundown, to cede them to the private sector’, she said.

She said the Bureau of Public Enterprises will start coordinating with other government arms on asset sales in the first quarter of this year.
