DAILY FILE – Vice-President professor Yemi Osinbajo has said that every Nigerian deserves to be rich, while admonishing the about 3000,000 beneficiaries of TraderMoni scheme to pay back the loan as scheduled.
This is to enable others to also benefit, the VP said.
Osinbanjo made the statement while addressing the 3,000 beneficiaries of the TraderMoni loan scheme in Keffi Market, Nasarawa State, on Tuesday.
He, however, appealed to beneficiaries of the loan programme to ensure that they pay back the loan facility in order to pave the way for other persons to also benefit from the programme.
The Vice-President, who was accompanied by Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State, stated that he was in the market to assess how the loan was being executed and to ensure that more persons are being registered on the programme.
According to him, the idea for the extension of the federal government’s MarketMoni/Tradermoni to all the states of the federation is to make sure that the empowerment initiative of the present administration reaches all nooks and crannies of the country.
He said the collateral-free loan, which was dispensed through the Bank of Industry, is part of the Federal Government’s National Social Investment Programme under the Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme meant to reinforce the Federal Government’s commitment to bridge the credit gap and empower Nigerians.
“Every Nigerian has the right to be rich and even very rich,” the vice president says.
