This question was asked by Reno Omokri on his twitter handle today Wednesday February 12, 2020.. Reno Omokri claimed that when the former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan handed over to President Muhammadu Buhari that Nigeria foreign debt was $7 billion. According to him, it is $23 billion today.
He stated that despite the growing foreign debts that the Buhari led government still want to borrow an additional $29.6 billion including $500 million for NTA.
Without missing a word Reno asked; who is going to save Nigeria from being destroyed? This is a big question begging for answers.
In a related tweet Reno explained that Nigeria as at today is spending more on debt servicing (not repayment) than we are spending on education, health and housing combined. Yet, President Muhammadu Buhari wants to borrow $500 million for NTA.
Will NTA feed the 87% of the North that live in extreme poverty, he asked.
