Ali Ndume, the senate leader, says he ought to have marketed the loan request of President Muhammadu Buhari, which was rejected by the upper chamber of the national assembly.
The senate turned down the president’s request to borrow the sum of $29.96 billion from external sources.
But speaking with journalists at the national assembly complex, Ndume said he will appeal to his colleagues to take a second look at the proposal.
He said the proposal had some technical issues, but that they would be resolved.
“I’m going to appeal to my colleagues to see how we will bring the proposal back,” he said.
“I think there were some technical issues; it was supposed to go to the committee where it will be worked on, but unfortunately it didn’t happen.
“But we’ll look at it. But I can’t say when the representation of the? proposal will be.
“I had no idea the proposal would be rejected if I had an idea I would have marketed it.”
The senators kicked out the proposal without a debate
