Oct 11, 2016 – America Gives Nigeria $92.73Million To Fight Poverty

The US Government has announced the sum of $92.73m in developmental assistance to support the five-year $2.3bn agreement signed with the Federal Government in 2015.

The U.S. Embassy in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja said that the amount was being provided through the U.S. Agency for International Development.
The embassy explained that the money brought the total of development assistance provided in the agreement to $474.74m.

He said, “This funding will continue to help Nigeria reduce extreme poverty in a more stable, democratic society.
“Activities will stimulate inclusive economic growth, promote a healthier, more educated population, and strengthen good governance.”

It quoted the USAID Mission Director, Michael Harvey as expressing the confidence that the funding would have positive impact on Nigerians.
It said, “Today we are pleased to contribute additional funding in support of the agreement signed with the Nigerian Government in 2015.

“With their leadership we know this funding will have a significant impact on the well-being of Nigerians.”
The statement also said that said USAID had collaborated with the Federal ministries of Budget and National Planning, Health, Agriculture, Power, and Education in an effort to align Nigeria’s development plans with sector-specific strategies.

The statement said that USAID also collaborated with state-level government counterparts to structure the agreement, which was in place until 2020.
It said, “In addition to the developmental funding, the U.S. provides humanitarian assistance to people affected by the ongoing conflict and severe food insecurity in Nigeria and throughout the Lake Chad Basin.

“Since fiscal year 2015, the U.S. has provided more than 366 million dollars in humanitarian assistance and continues to be the single largest bilateral humanitarian donor to the region.”

    Let’s pray the money will not end up in private pockets as usual. Anyway, with the way Buhari is fighting corruption only a fool will attempt to divert this fund into his/her pocket. Let’s wait and see. Lets hope and pray they don’t device a means to siphon this fund.

    all the money our president has recovered from the so called looters he claimed, is it not more than this particular one us government is giving us yet we have not heard or seen that this is one single thing that he has done with the money so far. who is more corrupt like pmb? pls spare me with fake pmb he also is a looter if not let him returned the billions he stole when he was the ptf minister and when he was the head of state then I will believe him that he is truly fighting corruption not one sided

    Just imagine what you have done to yourself. You cannot be trusted anymore even when you extend the hand of benevolence. USA, look me in the eye and tell me you are not up to a BIG mischief. You know you are not afraid of God anymore.. …. ….. ……. ……..

    Men may not know what your plans are but, God knows…………

    That money is wrapped with money wrapper with poverty written on the outer surface but, the inner surface bears the main tag..
