Probing Loans Taken By Nigerian Government Can Scare Away Foreign Investors – Rotimi Amaechi
Mr Amaechi stated this during an investigative hearing organised by the House of Representatives Committee on Treaties, Protocols and Agreements in Abuja.
He said the investigation could cause foreign partners to withdraw such loan facilities which would have a negative effect on Nigeria’s infrastructural development.
The minister said that he has raised the concerns over the ongoing investigation with the Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabimila.
He, however, recommended that the hearing should be shifted to December when the loan facility would have been acquired.
The Chairman of the committee, Nicholas Ossai (PDP-Delta) said the committee is empowered to conduct overnight before, during or after loan facilities are acquired.
He said the committee seeks to review all Nigeria’s bilateral loan agreement to ensure the country is not shortchanged. (NAN)
