Some People Exported Stones To Claim Export Grant –adeosun by ijustdey: 10:24pm On Aug 18, 2016
The Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, yesterday, disclosed how the federal government Export Grant was thoroughly abused in the past, saying that some people got export grants for exporting stones.

She spoke during a meeting with the Nigeria Economic Summit Group (NESG), in Abuja.

Her words, “On paper, why will you cancel Export Grant? The EG is set up to encourage export business.

“However, in a situation, where we do not have control, we open up doors for the kind of abuse, which are only imaginable. We have people exporting stones, describing them as high valued goods, collecting an import credit and using that to import fish.”

“We do need to look for how to support export, but we have to be very realistic in the recommendations we are coming up with.

The group met her to seek federal government assistance in making export business more attractive , among others.

She said that although the Export Grant scheme was stopped by the previous administration due to unprecedented abuse, the current government upheld the suspension in order to undertake a critical review of the policy.

She challenged the private sector body to come up with suggestions on implementable policies, in view of the current economic situation in the country.

Extending her hand of fellowship to the NESG, the Minister said the Ministry of Finance was ready to work with them and therefore challenged the private sector group to keep track of some of the recommendations to the Federal Government.

This is why we are so backward. Instead of targetting real export and raking in valuable $$$, we want to just export stones and sand so govt pays us with oil money.

young man read before posting comment.
Politics in Nigeria and Nairaland isn't all about Buhari and Jonathan.

Adeosun wasn't specific about last administration. Moreover, she went further to say the last administration saw flaws in the grant and had to stop it.

She said that although the Export Grant scheme was stopped by the previous administration due to unprecedented abuse, the current government upheld the suspension in order to undertake a critical review of the policy.

Stones for export grant.

Sunken vessels lying at the bottom of the ocean for over 20years yet importing petroleum products and collecting subsidies for same in 2011/2012!!

These are but snippets of the character of the administration of the Ineffectual Buffoon.
