About Ecological Funds

The ecological fund was set-up to mitigate against ecological problems in the country. The fund was set up in 1981 through the federation accounts act. 

There have been controversies surrounding the management of the funds in the country. In 2022, the SERAP asked for a probe of the fund management.

North central states such as Kogi, Niger state have been plagued by flooding, a development that has led to loss of lives and properties.
