Foremost lawyer, Chief Afe Babalola has tasked the incoming administration of Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu, to tackle Nigeria’s debt profile.

Babalola said forgiveness or cancellation would help relieve Nigeria of humongous foreign debts, adding that lion share of the country’s resources were being used to service debt obligations.

The legal luminary spoke on Sunday in Ado-Ekiti, at the sideline of a lecture titled “Smart Infrastructure: Catalyst for Sustainable Development” delivered by Professor of Intelligent Infrastructure System, Prof Bamidele Adebisi.

Babalola, who lamented the current state of the country’s debt profile, expressed sadness that the debt incurred were not channeled appropriately but were spent on questionable priorities.

He attributed the ballooning debt profile to lack of discipline and inefficiency of government spending, urging incoming administration to cut expenditures and undertake reform that would scale down governance cost as well as ease fiscal burden.
