Taraba Govt to secure N150bn loan from 6 consortiums

The Taraba Government has begun negotiations with a consortium of six Nigerian banks to secure a facility worth N150 billion naira for projects.

Gov. Agbu Kefas of Taraba made this known while presiding over the negotiation process with representatives of the banks in Abuja.

Kefas said the banks have a crucial role in supporting his government by providing loans and bonds, as the new administration strives towards fulfill its promises to the people of the state.

He said that the loan would be captured in the supplementary budget which would  be sent to the Taraba State House of Assembly for approval.

The governor assured the banks of the commitment of the state to honour its obligations to them and called on the bank representatives to be flexible and provide favorable lending terms and repayment schedules.

Kefas said that all the projects earmarked for execution have all been articulated in the 2023 budget.

He added that the loan facility would be used in financing educational projects, agriculture, quality healthcare delivery, energy, transportation, and other critical infrastructure.
