Lai Mohammed has replied critics for their frequent questioning of the Federal Government's loan collection. He said that the government will continue to collect loans
However, Lai Mohammed is right for saying that the federal government will continue to collect loans because the government is doing the right thing with the money. The government has been constructing roads, bridges, and paying salaries.

He said that the government was not borrowing for recurrent expenditure or to pay salaries, but to build world-class infrastructure that would benefit generations of Nigerians.
Some of the money borrowed was used to fight bandits and Boko Haram ransacking communities in Nigeria.
In case you missed it, Lai Mohammed spoke during a town hall meeting in Maiduguri. The Minister revealed that those who are questioning why FG borrows money were members of the past government that embezzled federal government money when the economy was much better.
