The former minister of education, Oby Ezekwesili has condemned the recent loan agreement between the Federal government and the Chinese government, Naija News Understands.

It will be recalled that Naija News earlier reported that President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday signed a loan agreement with China at the Forum on China-Africa (FOCAC) 2018 holding in Beijing where the Chinese government pledged to give $60 billion loan facilities to African countries, a quarter of which would be interest-free.

According to her, Nigerian leaders are being naive in making deals with China.

“Chinese attitude to Indebtedness is the hardest in the world. I know, because one had to deal with it in the course of my work at the World Bank, helping African countries to get the HIPC Debt Cancellation.

“It annoys me to no end to see our countries BINGING on Chinese Loans.
