ThisDay reports that the revelations were made at the end of the national economic council (NEC) meeting presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
The 22 stringent conditions demanded by the federal government from states include publishing their financial statements and receiving the bailout in monthly deposits, as opposed to full disbursement upfront as was the case with the 2015 bailout.
The loan will be disbursed starting from the next meeting of the federation account allocation committee (FAAC) meeting.
