A user with the handle @echetanedum said: “This reckless lending is a crime against humanity, against the Nigerian masses! You lend because of your self-profit, not incorporating due checks on usage! This loan will have No Socioeconomic Impact on Nigerians, as usual! Check records if you have any!”

Another Nigerian with the handle @Famozy2 commented: “Happy to hear your willingness to support Nigeria’s reforms in response to economic challenges; we appreciate your concerns. However, we will appeal you deal directly to areas of most concern, and not release funds which will end up been looted.”
