The newly elected Senator Smart Adeyemi of Kogi West said commercial banks now queue up in his house to offer him loans he did not ask because he is now a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
According to Adeyemi, the same banks had months ago, when he was not a senator, refused to lend him money when he approached them for a loan to boost his business.
Speaking at the Senate on Wednesday, Adeyemi said, “Banks in Nigeria contribute in no small measure to the problems of unemployment in the country.
Yesterday, I was in my house and four different banks came to me, telling me to fill forms and take money just because I am back in Senate. These are the banks I spoke to some months back to give me facility to run my business but they were not forthcoming,” he said.
