The Federal Government is “corrupting” the upcoming Osun State governorship election with its Trader Moni scheme, a former Education Minister Oby Ezekwesili has alleged.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo had recently launched the scheme in the South Western state.
However, Ezekwesili described such move by the Federal Government as “reprehensible.”
In a tweet, she said “The Federal Government either failed to be Ethically Circumspect or in fact Deliberately decided to CORRUPT the Elections in Osun by handing out Cash to Traders on the heels of the State Elections.
“Such behavior after the Grand Corrupting of Voters in Ekiti is REPREHENSIBLE.”
Osun State will go to the poll on September 22nd with the TraderMoni targeting 30,000 traders and artisans in the state.
