Senate denies pending loan request from Buhari

The Senate has denied withholding any request from President Muhammadu Buhari on a borrowing plan for external loans, contrary to insinuations by the country’s top economic managers.

Senate President, Bukola Saraki disclosed this at plenary on Thursday where he countered the submission made on Tuesday by the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, that the upper chamber is frustrating the executive’s plans to get foreign loans to finance the capital component of the 2017 budget as passed.
