Nigeria: Humanitarian Aid

Question for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office

UIN HL7378, tabled on 28 March 2022

To ask Her Majesty's Government what proportion of UK aid to Nigeria has been spent in the Middle-Belt since 2015.

Answered on

7 April 2022

Between financial years 2014-15 and 2020-21, approximately 11 percent of UK bilateral aid to Nigeria through legacy Department for International Development (DFID), legacy Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), and the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has been spent in Nigeria's Middle Belt. This percentage is an estimate, covering only bilateral UK spend funded by DFID and FCDO between 2014 and 2020 and does not reflect the totality of all UK aid spent through centrally managed programmes, multilaterals and other government departments.
