They accused Governor Ifeanyi Okowa-led government of mortgaging the future Deltans yet-unborn due to the high debt profile of the state.

The protesters carried placards with inscriptions such as: “don’t mortgage Delta,”; “We say no to N120B loan,” and others.

According to THE NATION, they insisted that the concerned banks would be giving out the loan at their own peril, as the state will not pay back.
