Omuo Ekiti in Ekiti State.

commiserate with the indigenes of the town.

In spite of the barrage of attacks by eminent Nigerians and opposition

Peoples Democratic Party,(PDP) branding the tradermoni policy as a

‘jamboree’, Osinbajo described the scheme as “one of the major policy

of President Buhari’s government, because it was centred around the

youths and poor Nigerians”.

embezzlement if the PDP succeeds in wresting power from the present

Buhari’s government, he described as prudent in terms of financial


He said the government will establish special micro finance banks

namely: People’s Money  Bank and Entrepreneurial Bank to drive the

tradermoni  and Market Money policies, where beneficiaries will get

between N100,000 and N500,000 to establish MSME to drive the economy.

“Many of our leaders are not responsible, so Nigeria needs a honest

man to lead the people  and President Buhari is doing just that. Don’t

allow anybody to deceive you.  President Buhari is a honest man, Our

problem in this country  is that many of our leaders are stealing our

money, so you must disallow them from coming to power again”, he said.

He said Ekiti will benefit from Lagos-Kano railway line that is

underway when completed, saying this project was targeted at

strengthening the economy of each of the benefiting states.

“Rather than stealing money, President Buhari is doing more in

strengthening the youths through N-Power, Tradermoni, School Feeding

Programme, Lagos-Kano rail line, Calabar—Asaba-Abuja Railway line,

among others. All these are meant to benefit Nigerian masses.

“As we speak, 500,000 Nigerians are benefiting from N-Power, but we

are not going to stop at that. Soon, the number will increase.

and other sector through the Special banks that are underway to make

lives easy for the masses”, he stated.

showcased to the Federal Government, saying those will special skills

shall continue to benefit patronage from government.

“If you want better values for your lives, if you need a government

that will be compassionate and  resourceful,  then vote For

“The good livelihood of Ekiti people is dear to Buhari’s government

and with the APC in the saddle, Ekiti will continue to enjoy the

dividends of democracy.

and pensions are paid regularly, so you have seen that we are

different to the government of the past”, he said.
