- Shehu Sani has trolled the Nigerian government for seeking a loan from Brazil
- Nigeria is proposing a fresh $1.2 billion agricultural loan from the South American nation
- Shehu Musa likens the idea with Ahmed Musa seeking a loan from Neymar
Senator Shehu Sani has trolled the Nigerian government over the proposed $1.2 billion agricultural loan from Brazil.
Nigeria’s minister of finance, budget, and national planning Zainab Ahmed on Tuesday, November 3, confirmed that the country is seeking funds from the South American country.
According to her, the loan will be used in acquiring as much as 100,000 hectares of land in each of the 36 states for food production.
Zainab added that such funds, if granted, would be used to build roads in such locations to provide access for farmers to move their farm produce to markets to reduce post-harvest losses.
And in his reaction, Senator Shehu Sani who represented Kaduna Central in the Nigerian Senate between 2015 and 2019 stated that Nigeria seeking a loan from Brazil is like Eagles captain Ahmed Musa requesting from Brazilian captain Neymar.
Musa is the captain of the Nigeria senior national football team, the Super Eagles, while PSG forward Neymar is the captain of the Samba Boys of Brazil.
“Ahmed Musa seeking Loan from Neymar,” Shehu Sani replied a post on Twitter with the headline ‘FG seeks fresh $1.2bn loan from Brazil’.
According to her, the total public debt stock comprising the external and home debts of the federal and state governments and the Federal Capital Territory stood at N31.01trn (USD85.90 billion) as of June 30, 2020.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has called up captain Ahmed Musa, defender William Ekong, midfield enforcer Oghenekaro Etebo and 21 others for November's 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying quick-fire double against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone.
