We didn’t finance elections with foreign reserves – FG

By Henry Umoru
ABUJA — THE Federal Government said yesterday that the nation’s foreign reserve was comfortable and capable of taking care of the country in the next few months.

The government also said that the delay in the implementation of Chief Solomon Lar’s report on the Jos crisis was as a result of the on-going consultations with traditional rulers like the Sultan of Sokoto, Tor Tiv, Emir of Kano, among others, as the government is presently engaging them on how to come up with a favourable solution.

According to the government, it was looking for an opportunity where it will bring the leadership of the two parties, who are of different languages, to a common table for final resolution.

Answering questions at the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ Peoples Forum with the theme, ‘’Making accountability the watchword’’, Minister of Information and Communications, Labaran Maku said that the Federal government never spent the nation’s reserves on the last Presidential election.
