The Senate has approved the request by President Muhammadu Buhari to approve Federal Government’s move to secure two external borrowings totalling $5.5bn.

The approval followed the adoption of a report by the Senate Committee on Local and Foreign Debts at the plenary on Tuesday.

Buhari, in a letter dated October 4, 2017, had said the external borrowings had been captured in the 2017 Appropriation Act, which has a deficit of N2.356tn and provision for new borrowings of N2.321tn.
