The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has berated the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, over the federal government’s empowerment of some traders with N10,000 in Osun State.
PDP’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, said it was a shame that Osinbajo could condescend to empowering “Agbo jedi” sellers with N10,000 in Osun State.
Sharing a photograph of those empowered on his Twitter handle, Ologbondiyan wrote, “It’s a shame that a pastor and a professor of law, VP @ProfOsinbajo will stoop this low to encourage the 10k “agbo jedi” empowerment in Osun.
“Aregbe has made life so pitiable for Osun citizens.”
Osinbajo had on Monday arrived in Iwo, Osun State, to launch an empowerment programme for 30,000 traders across the state.
The programme tagged ‘Tradermoni’ is an initiative of the Federal Government in collaboration with the Bank of Industry for petty traders.
Each of the 30,000 traders are billed to receive the sum of N10,000 to boost their businesses.
Executive Director of BOI, Toyin Adeniji, said the bank would not relent until every Nigerian who is willing, has access to loans irrespective of their status or level of education.
