We are going to take that $30b loan to tackle our infrastructural deficit that Obasanjo and his Clueless house boy refused to tackle for 16 years, if anyone is not happy about it, he or she can relocate to Congo!!!!

Guys, we don't need to fight here at all. Every fact is on the website of DMO. In december 2014, our debt was 9.7billion USD. As at June 30 2019, we are already at 27.1billion USD. Have we made progress or not? Before you insult anyone, get your facts. Whether Baba miss figures or not, our debt increased drastically under this regime. We borrow for a living and it's painful when all these guys (PDP/APC) squander these borrowed monies on frivolities. It only reminds me of that book; "There was a Country" It is time unite against the common foe-"politicians".

You obviously had a very poor education. Obasanjo said our external debt in 2015 was $10.32bn, and it is now $81.2bn. So you can't see what is wrong with this statement?
...tell me why you would not be called zombi? Inspite of the $70 something clearly acknowledged by dmo. Add the one dem one borrow...na how much.

If you are wise enough, you will realize that OBJ is not only fighting for you but your children and unborn generation

If you don't have anything genuine to say on this matter, please don't!!!

Let's put politics aside!

As if OBJ was not part of the problem the country is facing currently, Nigeria is 59yrs old and the major problem it has is leadership problem, OBJ ruled the country for 11yrs which mathematically translates to 19% of the country's problem.

Mr. mugu, OBJ is raising alarm that your unborn generation might continue to pay for money embezzled by GEJ, GMB, and their cabals.

This na semantics jor!

Basically, he got the total debt
position right, but made some error
in the creditors.

At the end, Nigeria is still owing
the amount Obasanjo quoted.


To my mind, this is a nitpicking

Obasanjo got the figures wrong. Our external debt today is no where near the $81.2bn that he quoted. It is around $22bn. I actually suspect he knows the truth but he is playing to the gallery for those dummies who can't read nor reason.

I think we should go to sleep till our external debt is $81.2bn.

Be it external or local both debts are over $81 Billion so what is the issue? We should ask what the difference in debt has be used for not asking stupid questions or making baseless references.

Who is talking about the gibberish OP wrote

I will not allow you to derail OBJ's message!

May be you were not born when he cancel the debt which was widely celebrated in this country unlike the Nigerian Air which vanished into the thin air which none of you is talking or writing about!

Wake up guy before it's too late for you! Zombie wey no quick locate him brain dey suffer last last

Ask Sowore and Adeyanju, them go tutor you.

Have a nice day

As much as I won't say much yes obj cancelled the debt but he also gave out false information just to cause panic, more over obasanjo is as selfish as another politician and he's still one of the people that messes these country up, also point of correction Nigeria airway died many years ago as nothing to do with these administration. Saying the truth is great but lieing in other to pass a message is shameful.happy New year

These Buhari's zombies are laughable, I swear!

While Obasanjo is quoting current debt figures the zombies
are referring us to June 2019

Why is every supporter of Buhari as dumb as the man himself?

.
No mind them, he forgot the recent one that the rubber stamp senate president approved.
We are owning that amount and they want to spend 37billion to renovate a complex instead of building even if its a toothpicks factory.

This is CRAZINESS in its original form. Obasanjo said $24.497 billion, while debt management office says $27.1 billion. That's even an increase, and they are even proud to come and say it? CRAZINESS!!! On seeing the news... I even thought the figure was way lesser than that.

Your problem is poor education and ignorance .

There is a big difference between external debts and our total debt profile which consists of both external and local debts for the FG, States and the FCT.

What is the impact of the debt accrued both externally and domestically.?
Nothing is working ☹️�.
We need a revolution to make this Nigeria meaningful.

What's the difference here between what OBJ had said, it's pure semantics in my opinion.

Whether external o, or internal o, gbese na gbese. The sum total of both internal and external as quoted by the DMO office is in the range of OBJ's quoted figure or more.

Them no dey service or pay back the internal debt?

Nonsense
