#TraderMoni Brouhaha: Ben Bruce, Oby Ezekwesili, Reno Omokri blast FG

There have been lots of outcry on social media about #TraderMoni, a scheme launched by the president Muhammadu Buhari administration. There were allegations that the government was using the N10,000 interest-free loans to induce voters after the scheme was in launched in Osun State lastweek.

According to the federal government, TraderMoni has been conceived since May 2016, a part of the 2-year-old Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme (GEEP) scheme of the Federal Government. GEEP, a social intervention programme being executed by the Bank of Industry, is said to have been providing interest-free loans to petty traders and artisans across Nigeria since May 17, 2016.

Critics have said it would have been better for an administration that prides itself of being anti-corruption to wait until after the governorship election in Osun, to launch the scheme. See what some prominent Nigerians said about the scheme being launched in Osun.
