Twitter users are reacting to the concerns of a former Nigerian minister, Amina Mohammed, who revealed that Nigeria’s debt profile had increased over the years.
The Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations at the ‘Working Together: IMF and UN Conversation’ event on Wednesday said: “As I was coming up from New York, some of the concerns that came up from the meeting we had in China just recently and reports that we have, the debt issues are really big. I mean, having experienced what it was for Ngozi (Okonjo-Iweala) to get debt relief.
“It took her a few years to convince people, and we are now back again in my country, with a level of debt that is worrying. It’s happening all over. Africa, is that the way we want to go?”
Mohammed was a former Minister of Environment before she was appointed the UN Deputy Secretary-General.
