“This would show the NASS can stand up for Nigerians, improve public confidence and ensure transparency.”

DAILY POST recalls that Buhari had on Tuesday asked the Senate to approve $4 billion and €710 million external loans.

The president’s request was contained in a letter addressed to Senate President Ahmad Lawan and read at plenary yesterday.

Buhari said the proposed loan would be financed through sovereign loans from the World Bank, French Development Agency, EXIM Bank and IFAD.
