The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Hajiya Zainab Ahmed, on Wednesday, said her ministry plans to release up to N900 billion for capital expenditure by December.

The minister disclosed this while briefing State House Correspondents after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

She said the finance ministry has so far released the sum of N650 billion after President Muhammadu Buhari gave a directive for the release of N600 billion for capital expenditure in October when he submitted the budget to the National Assembly.

How Nigeria Men Now Naturally and permanently boost their bedroom performance and regain confidence The minister spoke on the issue when told about the issue raised last week by the Minister of Works and Housing, Raji Fashola, that his ministry could not get all funds required to fix the roads.

She said it was true that the ministry had not been able to fund the budget 100 per cent. She, however, added that the Ministry of Power, the Ministry of Works and Housing, as well as the Ministry of Transportation always get the priority whenever funds were released for capital projects.
