The lawmaker stated that Nigerian youths would be made to pay for the loan in the future, when the older generations that acquired the loan would have been dead.

Murray-Bruce wrote: “Nigeria currently owes over $64 billion. This amount is 12% of our GDP. Yet, we want to take more loans.

“Nigerian youths don’t know that the older generations that are squandering these loans will not be alive when these loans will be due from their children who didn’t enjoy it.”
