Buhari will resubmit a request to borrow $30bn externally in the next two years to the Nigerian senate, Information Minister Lai Mohammed has announced.
According to him, the Presidency would continue to engage the lawmakers on the benefits of the borrowing plan.
“It is not unusual for the government and the Senate to have some disagreements; they (senators) want more information. We will continue to engage them. We will give them all the information they need,” he said on Wednesday.
“We are sure that by the time we finish, they will approve the request.”
The senate had earlier rejected the request in an open vote.
