Federal government should drop its plan to borrow twenty-nine point nine six zero billion dollars to execute key projects across the country.
This is because the government will be putting the collective destiny of the younger generation in jeopardy should it go ahead with the controversial decision.
Human Rights Activist and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana, made the plea in Lagos, while speaking at the annual general conference of Committee for Defence of Human Rights,CDHR.
He urged the federal government to source for funds locally.
Falana, who is a former president of CDHR, said the government should use recovered loot and go after chronic debtors to fund its projects.
His plea came after President Muhammadu Buhari asked the approval of the National Assembly to borrow the said loan from the World Bank.
