The Federal government says it would be selling off some government-owned properties as well as non-oil assets to fund the 2021 budget.

The Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, disclosed this during the budget presentation ceremony which was done virtually on Tuesday, January 12.

According to her budget presentation titled ‘Public Presentation of 2021 FGN Approved Budget – Breakdown and Highlights’ which has been shared online, the revenue generated from the sale of these assets will be used to fund the deficit of the budget.

In November 2020, the Bureau of Public Enterprise in a document presented to the Senate committee on Privatization disclosed that the Federal government plans to sell the Integrated Power Plants in Geregu, Omotosho, and Calabar at N434 billion in 2021.

The document presented indicated plans by the Federal government to also concession the National Arts Theatre, Tafawa Balewa Square, and all the River Basin Development Authorities at N836 million while the National Stadium in Lagos, the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja, and two others were pegged for concessioning at N100 million.
