Nigeria would help other African countries in effective debt management to boost their economies, a government official has said.Speaking to journalists in Abuja on Friday, the Coordinating Minister of the Economy and Minister of Finance, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala said already the nation's Debt Management Office (DMO) was being recommended by the United Kingdom as the best in Africa . ``'The first time we are marking a ceremony where a partner says that now we are an institution that they helped us built, is so mature, we don't need any more helpÂ€ she said. The finance minister said instead, the institution was now poised to help other African countries establish debt management, after it was recommended by the British as one of the best debt management institutions in Africa . Okonjo-Iweala dismissed the assertion in some quarters that the Nigerian government was piling up local and foreign debts which could force the economy to its knees. ``We want to say that the information about our debt is one of the most transparently available. The DMO has a website that has all the information'' she said.
