Ben Bruce: N10,000 Loan To Osun Traders A ‘Brazen Act Of High Corruption From An Anti-Corruption Govt’

Ben Murray-Bruce, the senator representing Bayelsa East District at the National Assembly, has accused the Federal Government of “brazen acts of high corruption”.

He made the accusation in reference to the Trader Moni loan payment to traders in Osun State “just weeks to the election”.

The loan, which has been launched in a few other states, offers N10,000 to each trader, and is expected to be repaid in six months.

The senator also alleged that the “secret payment of N16.6 billion to the Osun State government” was an act of corruption, noting that such was coming from a “so-called anti-corruption administration”.

A tweet via his handle read: “The ₦10,000 tradermoni ‘loan’ to electorates in Osun and secret payment of ₦16.6 billion by the Buhari govt to Osun State government just weeks to the election (in contrast, they did not pay Ekiti) are brazen acts of high corruption by a so called anti corruption administration.”
