The Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi has observed that the investigations of loans taken by the Federal Government could send wrong signal to the lenders.
Ameachi made this observation at an investigative hearing organised by the House of Representatives Committee on Treaties, Protocols and Agreements in Abuja.
He said the investigation could cause foreign partners to withdraw such loan facilities which have negative effect on Nigeria’s infrastructural development.
The minister said he has raised the concerns over the ongoing investigation with the Speaker of the house, Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila.
Amaechi explained that the hearing could stop the loan facility the Federal Government “is seeking for the completion of the Lagos-Ibadan and Kano rail projects”.
He, however, recommended that the hearing should be shifted to December when the loan facility would have been acquired.
The Chairman of the committee, Rep. Nicholas Ossai (PDP-Delta) said the committee is empowered to conduct overnight before, during or after loan facilities are aquired.
He said the committee seeks to review all Nigeria’s bilateral loan agreement to ensure the country is not shortchanged.
