Senate President Bukola Saraki on Friday urged Nigerians not to politicise the $29.9 billion loan request forwarded to the National Assembly by President Muhammadu Buhari for approval.


The Senate on Tuesday rejected the request based on lack of detailed information.

The Senate’s action was followed by opposition from some quarters.

The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed had disclosed on Wednesday that the end of the request has not come as it will be represented with detailed information to the National Assembly.

Speaking with State House correspondents after observing Juma’at prayer and holding meeting with the President along with some lawmakers, Saraki said that the loan request is a work-in-progress.
