A total of 56 government-owned enterprises (GOEs) will collectively spend N75.2 billion for travel and transport expenses in 2024.

The agencies’ expense is detailed in a budget proposal to the federal government published by the ministry of budget and national planning.

The GOEs are entities set up and controlled by the government to partake in commercial practices. 

In Nigeria, they are also called “Super Agencies” because of the enormous financial resources at their disposal.


In the earmarked N75.2 billion to be spent on trips, N51.4 billion would be spent on local transport, while N23.8 billion would go into international travel.

Out of the 56 agencies, Nigerian Civil  Aviation Authority (NCAA) tops the list with the highest amount to be spent on travel with N8.3 billion, followed by the Federal Airport Authority Of Nigeria (FAAN) with N6.5 billion, N5.8 billion, and  Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) with N5.6 billion.

On the other hand, the three GOEs with the lowest budget for travel and transport are; National Office for Technology Acquisition And Promotion (NOTAP) with N21 million, Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) with N15 million and Nigeria Integrated  Water Management Commission (NIWMC) with N12 million.


Below are the top 10 agencies with the highest budget for travel and transport in 2024.
