The leader of the House of Representatives, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila (Lagos-APC) on Wednesday countered claims by Senate President Bukola Saraki and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara that the Federal Government Trader Moni initiative was aimed at enticing voters to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term bid.
The lawmaker made this known while speaking with newsmen on Wednesday shortly after the All Progressive Congress (APC) caucus in the House met in the National Assembly.
According to Gbajabiamila, “am shocked that legislature will say that Trader Moni is vote buying when it is the same legislature that gave the budget approval. You budget for something and then you turned around. It means you’ve done disservice to the country. You’re indicting yourself.”
