Presidency List 15 Projects and its Beneficiaries That Wil be Financed With External Borrowing Plan.

Recently, President requested that the senate approve sovereign loans of $4.054bn and €710million as well as grant components of $125m which he will use to finish up hanging projects in all the six geopolitical zones before his tenure elapses. But the constant borrowing of the present government has caused mixed reactions over the media because some people said they are not seeing the impact. There is no tangible project to account for. People are still languishing in hunger and poverty despite all the external borrowings by the government.

According to a report on Daily Trust, Garba Shehu, Senior Special Adviser on Media to President Buhari listed 15 projects, their beneficiaries, and Agencies that will manage the project. Garba Shehu said the proposed projects are to be carried out with the recent sovereign loan that Pres. Buhari requested the senate to approve.
