A report released by the NOIPolls revealed that those were the top four recommendations proffered by Nigerians in a poll it conducted.

The report disclosed that 30 per cent of Nigerians interviewed were of the opinion that the government should use the funds to create employment opportunities, 20 per cent suggested that government should expend the recovered funds on improving the power supply, while another 20 per cent said it should be used to build hospitals and improve healthcare.

The report added that 15 per cent of Nigerians polled said it should be channelled to building new roads and rail links; with 10 per cent suggesting it should be shared among the poorest Nigerians.

“Interestingly, the proposed plan of the federal government to share the recovered funds to the poorest of the poor in the society came 5th on the line of suggestions, thereby indicating that Nigerians consider Jobs, Electricity and Healthcare as top priorities calling for urgent attention,” the report stated.
