Sharing Trader Moni Weeks To Election Is Vote Buying - Dogara

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has described the Trader Moni scheme of the federal government being championed by vice president Yemi Osinbajo just weeks to the 2019 election as direct vote buying.

Dogara made the remarks while delivering his address at the one day ‘Public Hearing on Vote Buying and Improving Electoral Processes in Nigeria’, on Monday, in Abuja.

The event organised by the National Assembly Joint Committee on INEC had the leader of the National Assembly, Bukola Saraki, in attendance among other federal lawmakers.

“I am delighted to address you on this public hearing, this is one of the important issue of the moment that needs to be addressed before the 2019 general elections,” Dogara said.

“For election to be qualified under a Democratic Government it must be free, fair and credible.

“The recent phenomenal and direct buying of vote is very disheartening. As citizens, we must not surrender to this criminality.

“Vote Buying and other criminal electoral process has left our citizen in a disaster because they are ruled by fear rather than challenging them.

“I call on all Nigerians to rise and condemn all practices of Vote Buying as it is the worst form of corruption and should be treated as such,” Dogara said.

Saraki had also described the scheme as sophisticated vote buying.
