Sale of Government Assets Will Benefit Nigerians – Finance Minister, Zainab Ahmed Says
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.
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.
