We Borrow For Infrastructural Development -Lai Mohammed

Minister of Information & Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed & Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said Nigeria is effectively utilizing the funds it borrowed from China and elsewhere for infrastructural development to create jobs and provide the basis for economic development. 

The Minister stated this at the construction site of the Ibadan Train Station on Saturday, after a joint inspection of the Lagos-Ibadan Standard Gauge Rail Project with his Transportation Counterpart, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi. 

“There is no better way to answer Nigerians as to what we have done with the money we have borrowed than this trip,” he told the over 40 journalists who accompanied them on the inspection. 

”On this trip, you have seen first hand the stations being constructed, the rail lines and the people who are working on the projects.

“Rather than arguing with critics, we opted to allow you (journalists) – the ears and eyes of Nigerians – to come and see for yourselves what we are doing with the money we are borrowing,” he said.

Alhaji Mohammed said there is nothing bad in borrowing, provided the funds are invested in infrastructure rather than services or consumption.

“We didn’t borrow money for services or overhead expenditure. We borrowed money for capital projects: rail; roads; bridges; power – infrastructure generally,” he said.

The Minister said the tour of the Lagos-Ibadan Standard Gauge Rail Project is the first in a series of inspection the administration is embarking upon to showcase to Nigerians the status of work on the projects the government is executing with the money it has borrowed.

He expressed delight at the level of work on the train stations and the modern coaches procured to convey passengers and goods on the Lagos-Ibadan Standard Gauge rail line. 

On his part, the Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, said $1.6 billion is being expended on the Lagos-Ibadan Standard Gauge rail line and the stations, with $200-$300 million counterpart funds from the Federal Government.

He appealed to the National Assembly to approve the $5.3 billion loan request from China to enable the government to execute the Ibadan-Kano Standard Gauge rail line.

The Ministers and their teams inspected the gigantic Ebute Meta Railway Station Building and yard construction work; Apapa Railway Station; Dockyard Station as well as Agege; Kajola; Papalanto; Abeokuta and Ibadan Train Stations, which are at various stages of completion.

    Paysafecard Mastercard withdrawals are only allowed if you’ve made an accepted deposit via that card in the past 6-12 months. Timeframe varies according to each poker site’s terms and conditions. All poker site withdrawal requests are also reviewed closely by each poker site which usually takes 2-3 business days. Once your withdrawal has reached your paysafecard Mastercard you can then spend it at any retailer or merchant that accepts Mastercard. You can withdraw the balance to cash as well but that will cost you a higher rate in fees. If the paysafecard Mastercard you used to make your deposit is no longer valid you likely won’t be able to withdraw to a new one until you make another deposit. In Canada, players can take advantage of the international site for some great bonuses and nice low- to mid-range stakes, even getting a bit larger on occasion. Play it right and you may even be heading to Las Vegas next summer with a shot at a WSOP bracelet. https://opensourceyourmind.org/community/profile/clkvirginia946/ These days, all the best online casinos offer multiple payment options, from Visa and Neteller to Paysafecard and Interac. Our guides to the best online gambling sites in Canada will help you find the top casinos that accept Paysafecard when making deposits and withdrawals. Paysafecard is a fast and efficient payment option but sadly not all the best online casinos support it. Paysafecard is the most preferred pre-paid card option by thousands of online casino players today. It originated in Vienna, Austria, and it made its debut in 2000. Since then, Paysafecard has become one of Europe’s most popular payment methods as millions of consumers are now relying on it when shopping and gambling online. You can also use your Paysafecard to top up a digital wallet, which could give you even more ways to spend. If you have an account with Neteller or Skrill, you can use a Paysafecard to top up your balance. Both of these are accepted at a wide range of providers from high street shops to online casinos.
