Katsina: Gov Radda denies DMO’s report of incurring fresh loans

By Faith Awa Maji, Katsina 

The Katsina State government has refuted claims by the Debt Management Office, DMO, that the Governor Dikko Umaru Radda-led administration has acquired fresh loans thereby increasing the state’s debt profile.

A report recently published by DMO indicated that Katsina under Governor Radda, along with some other states of the federation, collected fresh loans, to worsen their prevailing debt crises.

However, Ibrahim Kaula Mohammed, the spokesperson to the Governor, in a statement faulted the DMO report.

According to the statement, the Governor Radda-led government has preoccupied itself with repaying subsisting loans secured by previous administrations, since it came on board.

The statement maintained that not a single new loan has been collected by the present All Progressives Congress, APC, government in Katsina, under Governor Radda.

“This is not to say that the state government will not borrow whenever the need arises. It could borrow to improve the lot of its people and the state in general. 

“At the moment, however, there is no new loan. While we appreciate the efforts of the media in keeping the public informed about government activities, we regret any inconvenience the publication might have caused. 

“We call on the media, and the members of the public to continue to support the present administration in its efforts at providing meaningful projects to uplift the living standard of its citizenry,” the statement said.
