Dr. Davidson Isibor Akhimien the Presidential candidate of the Grassroots Development Party of Nigeria (GDPN), has faulted the Tradermoni loan being distributed by the Federal Government to over 1.5 million petty traders.
Akhimien stressed that TraderMoni initiative is a wrong approach to empowering ordinary Nigerians and lifting them out of poverty.
During the party’s rally in Ekpoma in Esan West Local Government Council Area of Edo State, Akhimien added that the measure rather than banish poverty will make the people poorer.
According to him, the GDPN views the TraderMoni loan initiative as vote buying and a strategy to further impoverish Nigerians.
“Let the Federal Government show us Industrial Hubs and Factories put in place all around the country to reduce unemployment and poverty.” He said.
Akhimien also noted that the failure of the ruling party to fulfill its campaign promises has contributed to the increasing poverty in the country.
This, he explained, would create jobs for the teeming unemployed Nigerian youths, improved the Gross Domestic Products(GDP) and Gross National Income(GNI) of the nation.
Who doesn’t know it’s vote buying.
When scrubby Osibanjo aforementioned he would not seem on Ebuka’s show thanks to campaign issue, which campaign was he doing then apart from giving traders 10k, a handshake and “pls
vote APC”… girls with vi baggage of rice, several kegs of palm oil, and bags of ga.
Is it 10k profit that they’ve ne’er created since they started selling??
