Buhari's $30 Billion Loan: VP Osinbajo Meets Saraki, Dogara 

Nigeria's Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo is in a meeting with National Assembly leaders, Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara as regards the loan request earlier made by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Saraki, the Senate President and Dogara, the House of Representatives Speaker, arrived at Osinbajo’s office yesterday, November 14, to discuss the possibilities of granting the loan.

Buhari had urged the National Assembly to grant a $30bn foreign loan request to ensure adequate funding of the 2016 budget.

The request, which has been severely criticized by prominent citizens, was rejected by the Assembly.

Buhari has held two meetings with Saraki since the rejection but no details were released.
