World Bank Statement on Support to Nigeria

World Bank’s support to the North East ($775 million in IDA credit) focuses on restoring basic education and health services, agricultural production, and livelihood improvement opportunities through community support development and youth employment. The World Bank is working with federal, state and development partners on speeding delivery of critical interventions to the people of the North East who urgently need assistance. In addition to our support to northeastern Nigeria, the World Bank continues to be fully committed to helping the Federal Government of Nigeria, the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) reduce poverty and foster prosperity for all Nigerians. The World Bank has a portfolio of about $8.5 billion spread across the country. Under IDA 18, the World Bank Group is doubling its resources to address fragility, conflict and violence at the subnational and national levels and help stabilize places that are affected by high poverty and influx of people.
