Budget Financing: Will selling government assets do the trick?
Experts argue on the pros and cons of FG’s decision to sell off some public assets to fund the 2021 budget.
The intention of the Federal Government to sell the nation’s assets to fund the 2021 budget has been received differently by several stakeholders and analysts.
Some have queried the rationale behind selling off assets today to cater to immediate needs, saying ‘it is like mortgaging the future to cater for now’. While other analysts say selling off dead capital is what the government needs to raise the funding Nigeria desperately needs.
