Opinion: Major Statements Fashola Made When He Claimed That Buhari Borrows For The Future Generation

The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has justified the debt accumulation by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration. Fashola justified it in an interview with BBC Pidgin.

However, there are major statements Fashola made when he claimed that Buhari borrows for the future generation.

What are the major statements Fashola made? 

"Buhari's debt accumulation is a way for the unborn generation to contribute to the country’s infrastructure building."

The government should know that the past leaders didn't leave any debt for them. So why accumulate debt for future generations?

"Nigerians should choose between borrowing and an increment in taxes."

Nigerians have been paying taxes which the government uses to do many important things. The accumulation of debt and the payment of taxes are two different things.
