Nigerian States To Get $1.5bn From World Bank


Finance Minister, Zainab Ahmed, announced on Thursday that the
World Bank is set to approve $1.5 billion dollars to Nigerian states as part of economic stimulus to cushion the impact of coronavirus.

  She briefed State House correspondents after the National Economic Council (NEC) meeting anchored from the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Ahmed said the World Bank maintains that the impact of the COVID-19 on Nigeria will lead to severe amplified human and economic cost, which will move the country into a recession.

She disclosed that the immediate fiscal relief will also involve policy-based policy budget support for the Federal Government.

It will focus on measures to maintain macro-financial stability and create fiscal space for the stimulus.

“The World Bank package has also got a proposal of 1.5billion dollars for the states and this package will be dedicated to the states and it will be a programme for results which the states are already used to implementing.’’

The Minister said the immediate fiscal relief for the states will include the acceleration of an existing programme to enable disbursement by end of September.

“We are looking at an average of between N150billion to N200billion based on the plan to the 36 states. These are states that have already made some particular commitments and achievements.”

The body meets monthly to discuss economic planning and programmes of various levels of government.

The members include governors, Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Minister of Finance, Head of the Civil Service, Secretary to the Federal Government and other relevant government officials.

  1. More monies to loot by these viruses in power called politicians.

  2. This ones (rulers/robbers)calling themselves leaders are so greedy and heartless.
    This is the main reason they are extending the lockdown not for peoples safety.
    Every day Ncdc keep giving out fake figures.
    They want to make as much money they can.

  4. That would be a ‘good’ move but with this lady in the picture, naaaaaaa, the Southern part of Nigeria should just not have high expectations. After the vile comment she made earlier at the beginning of the Covid lockdown, any news with her in the picture recks pretense, vile and evil.

  6. All Nigerian governors joined the group chat happily ����

    1. That is why politics is a lucrative business in this country.
      I hope and pray that,it's not another loan again because these people keeps cashing out on the virus than the virus itself.
      No wonder the Northern Governors said that their states are the worse hit by COVID-19.
      Only on GodπŸ™πŸ™ can Nigeria move forward because we don't have people who has the interests of this country at hearts.
