People are funny and bold in ignorance. We took loans from China for infrastructural projects which are being executed around the country. Many of us have used some of these new facilities and we enjoyed it. Now, no loan comes without conditionalities. If the conditions are to allow Chinese banks to invest in our private sector, please tell me, is that a bad condition for loans? I give you money on the condition that you will in return allow me invest in your market. This is fairer than almost any traditional western conditionalities for loans. Chinese banks operating in Nigeria will count as FDI, boost employment and contribute to putting the Nigerian financial market on the world map.
