The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Nyesom Wike, has revealed that the FCTA is planning on using the five billion naira palliative on transportation and food supplies suppor.
The minister also revealed that the Federal Captial Territory was exempted in the N5 billion palliative but he had to write a memo to the President.
Wike confirmed that president Tinubu has approved the five billion naira. He also confirmed that other states have received N2 billion only.
He said,“But we are yet to decide on what to do with the N2 billion palliative. We have not chosen any area yet.
“Are we going to concentrate on food, but we are thinking that the issue of transportation is very very important, particularly the urban mass transit.
“People would like to have easy transportation to go to where they want to go, and if you give them rice and they eat the rice today, what about transportation tomorrow?
“So, we have not come up with what actually we are going to use the money for, but I believe food support and transportation is very key,” he said.
