President Jonathan seeks $1billion loan to fight Boko Haram

President Jonathan is seeking $1billion loan to fight Boko Haram. In a letter sent to the House of Representatives this morning, President Jonathan asked the Rep members to approve a request for an external loan of $1billion (about N165billion) which would be used to upgrade the equipment of the Armed Forces in the fight of the insurgent group, Boko Haram. The letter was read this morning during the house plenary session.

Jonathan you're too dumb, what a mess for a president. Nigeria is rich but very poor.

Hmmm!

BONARIO NNAGS said...

Hmmm this is not a small something.
Its quite an unfortunate situation we've found ourselves. Imagine such amount put into capital projects in our country, the developmental gains would be enormous.
I'm in support of any positive strategy to end this evil before it consumes us all.

#165b for equipments, isn't that too much?????

Will the armed forces go head to head with boko haram after they are given these equipments?????

Bonita Bislam said...

I won't be surprised if he asked to sell Nigeria all in the name of fighting BH.Same BH that they are playing politricks with.I've also known long time ago that this govt is thieves and looters friendly.So many names and actions to justify that...Release of Al-mustapha,Granting pardon to Diepreye Alams,reversal of Bode George conviction,Dropin of lawsuit against Mohd Abacha,Senate's denial of missing $49.8Billion as proved by Sanusi.If this money isnissing,why can't get take the 1billion from it? Story for the gods.

The rogue of a man. The budget for Defence each year, in the last 3 years has been in the region of over 900 billion naira each year. What did he and his thieving cronies do with all that cash? Yeah, they shared all of it...used some of it to rig elections and the remnant to pay off Law makers to impeach their Governor. Complain as much as i may, the amount will be approved and shared in customary manner. God help us in this country.

Exactly ...for the past years,yearly allocation to security has always been over a billion dollars.
What did they do with that?
Even this years allocation,where is it?
Why is he asking for another 1 billion when just beginning of this yr they added another 1 billion to the one theyv been collecting in the last years.
Na wa for this country oh.
When theyv drained the country to a point of no return,they will carry their children and wives out of it.

Confirmed....GEJ is a flipping rogue and has finally gone bonkers. Like someone said earlier 'are we fighting Isreal?'. No wonder he appeared non challent in the fight against BH. He had an agenda which is to Kip the terror raging on and then come up with this kind of joker. Get the money and use the major part o it to campaign. If He is behind BH, He will be exposed and disgraced. If he is not, I wish him luck.
