Sale of government assets will benefit Nigerians – Finance Minister, Zainab Ahmed says


The Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, has said that the sale of the Federal government's properties to fund the 2021 budget will benefit Nigerians and help to boost the economy.

 

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

 

Recall that on January 12 during the budget presentation, Ahmed revealed that the Federal government will be selling off some of its assets and use the funds generated to fund the deficit in the 2021 budget. 

 

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

 

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

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

 

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