Osinbajo Insists Trader Moni Wasn't Used To Buy Votes

Published by Nairaland on Sun, 17 Mar 2019


Yemi Osinbajo, Nigerias Vice President, has again denies the claim that the Trader Moni scheme was not for vote buying, but to empower over 30 million Micro-, Small- and Medium- Enterprises (MSMEs) with interest-free, collateral-free loans.<br><br>The Vice President said this through Laolu Akande, his spokesperson, in response to Odilim Enweagbara, an economist and entrepreneur, who insisted the scheme was to curry support for the 2019 general election.<br><br>Enweagbara had stressed that the scheme investigated and disbursements audited to expose perceived plundering of the public tilt by the ruling party under the guise of empowerment.<br><br>Enweagbara said:Thatfraud called Trader Moni must be independently investigated. Trader Moni was the newest form of vote buying and inducement of voters to vote for APC. That was why it was done a few months to the 2019 general election and has since been stopped because the objective has since been achieved.&quot;<br><br>However, the Vice President said: The Trader Moni schemeis one of the Government, Enterprise and Empowerment Programme (GEEP) micro-credit products.<br><br>MarketMoni and FarmerMoni are still very much in operation. We have a target of 30,000 minimum beneficiaries per state, and we have achieved this in majority of the 36 states and Federal Capital Territory (FCT). What the team has been doing is generating the balance of programme funding and ramping up on the states where we have a shortage.&quot;<br><br><br><a href="http://saharareporters.com/2019/03/17/osinbajo-insists-trader-moni-wasnt-used-buy-votes">http://saharareporters.com/2019/03/17/osinbajo-insists-trader-moni-wasnt-used-buy-votes</a>
