Nigerian lawyer and author, Reno Omokri, has taken to social media to air his views on the $500 million loan recently taken for the digitization of NTA.
According to him, it is stupidity on the part of Nigeria to take a loan for that purpose when the country’s priorities should be power, road and education.
In a letter addressed to the president of Nigeria, which he posted on his social media page, the author asked General Buhari to approach Ngozi Okonjo Iweala for wisdom on how to run the country.
"Dear General Buhari,
“How can you borrow $500 million to digitalise NTA? Do Nigerians even have electricity to watch NTA? It is like borrowing to buy shoes for a man without legs. Our priorities are power, education and roads, not an NTA that no one even watches! It is not a necessity.
“It can even be classified as a stupidity. How will the money be paid back, when NTA is not a profitable media? Please approach Ngozi Okonjo Iweala to borrow you the sense she is currently borrowing South Africa!" he wrote on Instagram.
