Nigeria Is Fulfilling China Debt Repayments As Appropriate – DMO

The Debt Management Office (DMO) has said there is no iota of truth in a report that Nigeria was defaulting in the repayment of the loans it took from China, .

Reacting to the story captioned “DMO report: Nigeria defaulting in Chinese loan repayment”, the office said Nigeria has not breached the it agreement its signed with any creditor.

“Nigeria is fully committed to honouring its debt obligations and has not defaulted on any of its debt service obligations,” the DMO said in a short rebuttal.

The report being rebutted said that Nigeria had incurred a penalty of N41.31 billion for defaulting on Chinese loan used ostensibly to reactivate some of the country’s rail lines. This too was denied by the DMO.

The basis for the alleged default is linked to the spate of attacks on rail tracks and the kidnap of train passengers all of which resulted in the stoppage of train services on some routes for a while.
