Nigeria will continue to borrow to fund 2017 budget - finance ministry

ABUJA, July 13 (Reuters) - Nigeria will continue to borrow domestically and abroad to fund its budget for 2017, the finance ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

On Tuesday, the finance minister had said that Africa’s largest economy “cannot borrow anymore”, and should instead raise money it needs by other means.
