“Which is foremost in our minds and in the minds of Nigerians and the issue of continuous borrowing by the federal government by the executive arm.

“If it continues like this Nigerians will be feeling pains of borrowing.

“And it will get a point if we continue to borrow the way the executive arm is going, it will be difficult to breath both politically and economically, so this must come to an end.”
