The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo going from market to market ‘hawking’ N10,000 in the name of Trader moni is a sign of underemployment, saying this could not have happened in a serious country.
The presidential spokesperson of the party, Mr. Akin Osuntokun, disclosed this Tuesday while featuring on ARISE News TV, the broadcast arm of THISDAY, where he also said that sharing of N10,000 would not help the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government going into the general election.
He said: “Nigerians are not that gullible. Sharing N10,000 in few weeks to the elections will not help this government, unless you are implying that Nigerians are gullible. A country and electorate that vote on that basis has a problem; you campaign on what you have done.
“That is an indication of a vice-president who is underemployed. The vice-president of a serious country of 180 million people going around markets and motor parks hawking N10,000; is that governance? That is a joke.
“Have you ever heard it in any serious country where the vice-president goes from door to door to campaign. The vice-president of Nigeria, their job is 24 hours, the complexity of Nigeria governance alone. If that is the priority of a vice-president, knocking from door to door, then, that is an explanation of why the government has failed.”
