“Our response is to ask why a nation that has been officially named as the world headquarters of extreme poverty, will donate her resources to others instead of using them to solve pressing domestic problems?

“This is the same government that is so cash-strapped that it has so far borrowed N13tn in three years” he said.

The former vice president frowns at the promise the president took and urges the president to cut its coat according to its size.

He asked, “How prudent is it to go about taking loans from whosoever cares and then turn around to give out the money when your own people are suffering the worst form of poverty?
