The House of Representatives on Tuesday approved external borrowings to the tune of $5,803,364,553.50, according to a request by President Muhammadu Buhari.

It also okayed a grant component of $10,000,000 for the Federal Government, following the adoption of the report of the Committee on Aids, Loans and Debt Management on the Proposed 2018–2020 External Borrowing (Rolling) Plan No.3.

The report was laid by the chairman of the committee, Ahmed Safana-Dayyabu.

The breakdown of the loans shows that the World Bank would give $2,300,000,000; German Consortium, $2,300,000,000; Islamic Development Bank, $90,000,000; China Eximbank, $786,382,967; Bank of China, $276,981,586:50; and the International Fund for Agricultural Development, $50,000,000.
