Bill Gates To Repay Nigeria’s $76m Polio Debt by marryjesus: 6:13am On Jan 10
Nigeria has authorised Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to start the repayment of $76 million polio eradication loan to Japan.

The Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, made this known in Abuja on Tuesday when she received a delegation of Japanese House of Councillors Parliamentarians.

She said that the delegates were in Nigeria to assess the level of usage of Overseas Development Assistance (ODAs) extended to Nigeria since 2014.

She added that the authority to trigger repayment was given to Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation following the eradication of polio in the country.

She noted that the eradication of polio was made possible as a result of the ODA facility provided by the Japanese Government valued at $76 million in 2014.

She recalled that the ODA was structured for repayment after four years and that by this development, Bill and Mellinda Gates Foundation would start repaying the facility to Japan this year.

Adeosun while marketing Nigeria to the Japanese delegation noted that Nigeria was fast growing and evolving from negative areas to positive areas through its determined fight against corruption.

She added that “because Nigeria is a middle income country, we will require the expertise of Japanese companies for infrastructure development.

“Nigeria is a good place to invest because it is a rising investment destination.

“I promise that the government will make life easy for Japanese investors wishing to do business in Nigeria.”

In his address, the leader of the delegation, Mr Kiyoshi Ejima, described Nigeria as a power house with rich natural resources with which Japan tried to strengthen relationship with.

Nigeria, he said, had set the target of becoming one of the top 20 economies by the year 2020 and he assured that “Japan will support Nigeria toward realising its 2020 target.”

If there is any truth to this, then thank you to Bill and Melinda. No time for blame games. Polio must be eradicated.

Gates has been responsible for the eradication of polio in Nigeria for as long as I can remember.

bill gates keep your money or spend it towards a better cause because very soon the useless people we have in power will Start borrowing huge amount of money to satisfy their greedy desires, hoping that a rich foreigner will settle their debts. we keep deceiving ourselves in this country, Nigeria in the top 20 economies by 2020? a country that doesn't have its own airlines, a country where the president still travels abroad for treatment.

here goes the man that doesn't pay tithe



sometimes I wonder how pastor Adeboye and Oyedepo will say "if you don't pay tithe you will be poor for life" witha straight face to their congregation knowing fully well that they are lying.

Bill Gates isn't a Black. His wife isn't. ..His parents aren't.

Yet he has donated over $37 billion to Africa.

Yet Pastors would be shouting we should pay tithes. Can you compare that to the impact this man has made ?

Why aren't Pastors this generous? They don't have to donate 76 million...let us even see 750k

Please don't. We have enough money to dump trillions into oil exploration in the North. More billions to dump into fighting a technically defeated Book Haram. Dear Mr Gates, thanks, but we can afford to pay the debt. Keep your money Sir.
