On Wednesday, Mrs. Zainab Ahmed, the minister of finance, budget, and national planning, gave an explanation of why the federal government had bought ten automobiles for the Niger Republic for N1,145,000,000.

He noted that Nigeria has a tradition of helping out needy neighbors in the name of brotherhood.
