Interesting: Buhari writes Reps, seeks fresh $5.513bn loan

President Buhari has written to the House of Representatives to request for the approval of fresh external borrowings totalling $5.513bn.

Buhari, in the letter read by Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, at the plenary on Thursday, said the funds were for 2020 budget deficit, financing of critical projects, and some states of the federation.

The President also presented a revised 2020 Appropriation Bill and 2020-2022 Medium Term Expenditure Framework and Fiscal Strategy Paper.

The National Assembly had recently approved a loan of N850bn for the Federal Government, while another of $22.79bn, which the Senate has already approved, is pending before the House.

  1. A borrowing President. Nigeria is finished. Even after borrowing trillions and trillions, Nigerians are still in abject poverty.
    Programmes and projects that will lead to massive looting are what our governments are passionately focusing on.
    Feeding school children at home with almost N14 billion under lockdown. What a country with cursed leaders.
