Why FG Should Sell Public Assets-Finance Minister



Zainab Ahmed

Nigeria’s Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, has backed the planned selling of some government-owned public properties.

Ahmed who spoke on Friday, January 22, said that the sales of the moribund public assets to private hands will invariably boost the nation’s economy.

She noted: “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.”

The minister explained that the aim is not just to fund the 2021 national budget but to get the assets working for economic gain.
