A statement signed by the Director of Information in the Finance ministry , Salisu Dambatta , said the payments were made upon the approval of President Muhammadu Buhari on November 21 , 2016 .
This is in partial settlement of long standing claims by state governments relating to over- deduction from their Federation Account Allocation Committee allocations for external debt service arising between 1995 and 2002 .
The deductions were in respect of the Paris Club, London Club and multilateral debts of the Federal Government and the states .
While Nigeria reached a final agreement for debt relief with the Paris Club in October 2005 , some states , according to the statement , had already been overcharged .
The statement read in part , “The funds were released to state government as part of the wider efforts to stimulate the economy and were specifically designed to support states in meeting salary and other obligations , thereby alleviating the challenges faced by workers .
“ The releases were conditional upon a minimum of 50 per cent being applied to the payment of workers ’ salaries and pensions. The Federal Ministry of Finance is reviewing the impact of these releases on the level of arrears owed by state governments.
“ A detailed report is being compiled for presentation to the Acting President , Prof . Yemi Osinbajo, as part of the process for approval for the release of any subsequent tranches . ”
