Twitter is currently abuzz over a $500 million loan request which the ministry of information under Lai Mohammed is seeking.

When he appeared before the senate committee on local and foreign loans on Monday, the minister had reportedly said if the loan is approved, the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) would compete favourably with Cable News Network (CNN).

The $500 million is part of the $30 billion loan President Muhammadu Buhari is asking the national assembly to approve.

Mohammed’s comment has attracted different reactions. Below are some tweets:

“Please we don’t want NTA to compete with CNN now. The private media houses should do the competition. $500m loan will grow wing and disappear into people’s bank account. And Nigeria will end up using her lean resources to investigate and prosecute those that will loot the money,” Mazi Chux tweeted.
