Ayo Fayose has described the Federal Government’s TraderMoni scheme as a higher form of vote buying.
Fayose was baffled at to why the funds given to the traders are not paid directly into their bank accounts, so they can be traceable.
He revealed this in a statement signed by his new media aide, Lere Olayinka.
Fayose said “If not that TraderMoni was to reloot the recovered Abacha loot, the proper way was for beneficiaries to be captured biometrically and the N10,000 paid into their bank accounts instead of the Vice President going to the market to share cash.
“Most importantly, there is nowhere that the Vice President will travel to outside Abuja that he won’t spend up to N25 million on his allowances, maintenance of presidential jet and the allowances of his retinue of aides, including security men.
“Therefore, of what economic sense is going to say Kano to share the N10,000 cash to 1,000 people? Isn’t spending N25 million to share N10 million same as being penny wise pound foolish?”
Ayo Fayose had recently warned President Buhari to prepare his hand over note, adding that Nigerians will send him parking this year.
