Lai Muhammed Says There Is No Cause For Alarm Despite $84bn Debt

Minister of Information Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said that there is no cause for alarm over Nigeria’s rising debt.

According to The Cable, Muhammed said this while Speaking on Monday at a press conference to highlight the administration’s major achievements in the year, the minister said the country’s total debt is $84 billion.

He said the public debt stock is a cumulative figure of borrowings by successive governments over many years.

There is currently a nationwide outrage over a $29.6 billion loan request the president sent to the national assembly.

In the letter where he conveyed his request, Buhari asked the lawmakers to approve the loan which he said is “critical to the delivery of the government’s policies and programmes”.

Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo and Atiku Abubakar, his former deputy, have asked the national assembly to reject the request but Mohammed defended the president, saying the government is borrowing more to address “massive infrastructural decay with roads, bridges, railways, waterways and power”.
