Mohammed Ndume, a senator for Borno South and the head of the Senate’s Army Committee, has vowed to fight the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s request for the $800 million loan.
According to DAILY POST, President Buhari requested Senate permission for a $800 million loan from the World Bank to support the National Social Safety Network Programme, claiming that the credit is intended to help the poor after the loss of the petrol subsidy.
Ndume responded to the president during his latest appearance on Trust TV’s Daily Politics by stating that the loan is unjust and against the law.
“I will go to court because it is illegal, unconstitutional, and unfair,” the senator declared. Let me give you an example: There are two of us in the studio right now, and you say you’re going to borrow $1 million and split it between us. How are you going to choose the two? In addition, if you give to the two and they are the ones who have to pay, that is OK, but all Nigerians would be on the hook for the money.

How fair is it to randomly hand 4,000 Naira to Nigerians today? In actuality, it is unlawful because discrimination is prohibited under the Nigerian Constitution.
This elderly man (Buhari) is being intentionally misled by these people’ use of grammar, and he will no doubt accept it. Buhari is not aware of this. We cannot keep allowing them to take the money, which is all they want to do.
You may quote me on this: “Their aim is what they can get out of it, not what Nigerians can receive. The President is being misled by them.
