FG berated over rationales behind selection of 'poor masses'

Muhammadu Buhari

The Federal Government has been requested to review and explain its manner of defining what it called poorest of the poor masses in the country.

The Oodua People’s Congress, OPC New Era stated this in a statement signed by its Kwara State Coordinator, Comrade Bayo Fabiyi, in Ilorin Wednesday.

He noted that the federal government is not logical in its definition of the poorest of the poor among the masses in the country going by the lopsidedness in the way the palliatives materials are being managed.

Fabiyi said: “The government said that they are using the Trader Moni networks which to me is like giving another loan to the people who are not doing business by the stay at home order, yet expected to pay the money they borowed.

“Apart from that, is it only those who enjoyed the Trader Moni that are tagged poor and should enjoy the palliatives? What about others who are not traders but are also poor?”

He however advised the federal government to be more transparent in the way it deals with issues relating to the poor because the efforts to reach out to them might be counter-productive in view of the fact that there is usually no follow up mechanism to checkmate operators of such policies.

Fabiyi further berated various banks that donated money to the federal government calling them ‘hypocrites’ haven reaped from the so called masses of Nigeria through bank charges but decided to donate such funds to federal government.
