While delivering #TheAtikuPlan, Atiku stated that his administration will give grants to state governments that increase their own revenue.

He said: “My plan to restructure Nigeria will lead to a vast increase in the Internally Generated Revenue both for the Federal Government and the states via the matching grants that we will provide to state governments that increase their own revenue.

“Let me be clear no state will receive less funding than they get today – in fact, all will receive more and the harder a state works the more they will get.”
