States To Get N20b Each For Infrastructure

The Federal Government is on the verge of refunding at least N20 billion to each of the 36 states for infrastructural development.

Speaker, House of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Dogara made this disclosure yesterday while responding to the Igwe of Ogwuekpele, His Royal Highness Igwe Valentine B.C. Onyema Ogidiga, who had expressed concern on dilapidating infrastructure in Anambra State.

The speaker, who was in Igwe’s palace on a courtesy visit, said the Federal Government was planning to invest in infrastructure and provision of capital.
A statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the Speaker, Mr. Iliya Habila, further quoted Dogara as saying that when the money is refunded to the states, it would assist them in providing critical infrastructure.

According to the speaker, “As regards debts being owed to states, I can announce that very soon no state will get less than N20 billion from the money that is coming.
“I believe they will be able to translate that money into development so that they could support the diversification policy of the Federal Government.”

*Where will the FG get the money from?TSA?..I hope state governments will pay salaries being owed as soon as they get the Monies...😕


  1. I pray Mr Rochas Okorocha will use his own judiciously.

    1. They shouldn't give him directly they should pay it straight to the contractors account. Rochas is a big thief

  2. and they said there is no money in the country but it's alright... go on

  3. Where did Vuharia got the money he used in supporting Hilary Clinton's campaign?...
    And Nigeria is in recession?...
    Who is deceiving who?...
    Why can't this government be truthful for once?...
    A foundation built on lies will never stand!...

    1. U this moron, listen closely. Nigeria did not give any money to Clinton's campaign. It is against the law in the US for a candidate to receive campaign contributions from any foreigner - individual, corporate or govt. U get it? Illiterate housegirl.

  4. Another money to be stolen and embezzled.

    Your comment will be visible after approval.

  5. Hmmmmm I hope and pray they put it to use oo and not otherwise!!! We siddon de look

  6. Thought they said naija is broke? Where would they get the money from? .....TSA i guess
    Time to embezzle for some states

  7. Lying... That is what our politicians know how to do best.
    Where will u people get dat kind of money

  8. We need action not okwu nkasi-obi. People need their salaries this period.

    ROchas onye wayo, him go pay salary at all?

  9. Another set of money to be looted. These guys are not doing anything tangible with the fund. You can imagine them commissioning gates or borehole. Is that what their mates are doing in developed countries?
    You can imagine local govt council collecting N2,500 annually from shops in my area (ikorodu) and yet they can not grade the round. What the hell are the using the money for.
    A bunch of fantastically corrupt politicians

  10. Share this money to all naija citizens oooo! If not u guys will know no peace!

  11. Awoof don land...woo hoo

    Time for side chics to upgrade their ride..and in time for Christmas too

    Naija we hail thee...

  12. Please do it quickly masses are suffering., salaries needs to be paid.

  13. Quickly o,
    Hope they won't steal it again

  14. I would suggest that the FG set rules for the states before eligibility for this fund. In other words, specify the type of project and the timeline for completion. Then release to qualifying projects as reimbursement. So the states would have to spend the money first and then u refund them IF the conditions r met.
