The President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government has on Tuesday, stated that the $1 billion from the Excess Crude Account, ECA, is not only meant to fight Boko Haram alone.
This came after the Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, swiftly opposed any withdrawal from the ECA, to fight Boko Haram.
Meanwhile, the planned withdrawal has also been a subject of political bickering, between the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Providing a further explanation about the controversial $1 billion on Tuesday, Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, said the money was not meant for Boko Haram war alone. 

“It was on account of the Security Summit, that the Governors at the Governors Forum subsequently decided that they would vote a certain sum of money, which has become somewhat controversial, the $1 billion, to assist the security architecture of the country.
“It was to assist all of the issues in the States, including policing in the States, community policing, all of the different security challenges that we have”, Osinbajo said at the ongoing Retreat of Secretaries to the Government at State and Federal levels, in Abuja.
This is the first time the administration would be explaining that the money is not intended for anti-Boko Haram efforts alone.
