The newspaper says states in Nigeria will get the first tranche of a $750m World Bank loan by December 2022.

The Nation reports that Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said if elected president, his leadership will inspire Nigeria to greater heights. The newspaper says the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has commenced an aggressive drive to recover the loans it disbursed under its development finance interventions.
