Why Buhari Is Allowing Us Take Loans – Amaechi

Why Buhari Is Allowing Us Take Loans – Amaechi (Updated: 2 years ago)


The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has said President Muhammadu Buhari has approved for Nigeria to take loans.

Amaechi stated this during a special 60th Independence Anniversary programme on Channels Television on Thursday.

According to the former Governor of Rivers State, the loans are meant for infrastructural development in several parts of the country.

“The President (Muhammadu Buhari) allows us to borrow. We are borrowing to develop and things will change,” he said.

Amaechi explained that when crude oil was sold at $120 per barrel, the total amount needed to develop the railway across the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) was between $35billion to $40billion.

 

“It wasn’t like this before. We had money to construct this railway. The total fund that we needed to finish the entire railway in the country was about $36billion to $40billion.

“We had this kind of money when we were selling crude at $110 to $120 per barrel. Now, the money is no longer there,” Amaechi said.
