Obasanjo chides Osinbajo, says Tradermoni, an absurdity



Former President Olusegun Obasanjo , on Sunday , faulted the Federal Government ’ s loan scheme, otherwise known as Tradermoni, describing it as a sinister move to buy votes of the people .Obasanjo stated this in his 16 – page statement titled, “ Points for concern and action , ” given to journalists in Abeokuta .

Obasanjo , who quoted a former Deputy Chairman , South – West of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olabode George , as saying , “ You cannot give what you don’ t have.

“ The other day , the Vice – President of Nigeria , Prof . Yemi Osinbajo – a learned man , an enlightened person in all parameters – was seen at various markets in Lagos State and Abuja distributing N 10 , 000 each to market women . What an absurdity !”

Obasanjo said , “ It was indeed an obscene display of executive recklessness and abuse of office . Pray , where did the money come from ? Was it budgeted for in the appropriation law ? In more civilised nations , Osinbajo would have been impeached and prosecuted for gutting our collective treasury .

“ What an act by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria , number two man in the Executive hierarchy ; and what is more , a pastor of one of the Christian movements led by a revered , respected and upright church leader , Pastor E . A . Adeboye . Osinbajo must have gone for , ‘ if you can ’ t beat them , join them . ’

“ A great pity indeed and which makes people ask the questions , “ Any hope ?” Yes , for me , there is hope . Osinbajo has shown the human weakness and proved the saying that the corruption of the best is the worst form of corruption .
“ His explanation that it was their government programme can only be construed to be very shallow and lopsided , if not an outright idiotic programme . ”
