Factual Reportage

As Nigerians battle with the current economic hardship, following the policies of the federal government, Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, revealed on Wednesday president Bola Tinubu has approved an extra allocation of N30b to each of the state governors to address the challenges of food scarcity and hardships confronting Nigerians.

Akpabio therefore urged the governor’s to ensure judicious use of the allocation, adding that each state should properly utilize the money towards ensuring the availability of food.

The senate president, who made the revelation on the floor of the senate said: “I must say that unverified report has it that each of the state government in the last few months received additional N30 billion from Federal Inland Revenue Service, outside their normal allocation from the federation account to assist them in ameliorating the food situation.

“We believe that every state government should utilise the funds so received towards ensuring that food is available.”
