VP Osinbajo shared a video update yesterday on his visit to Jigawa State to Monitor Trader Moni Loans Disbursement. below is what he had to say:
President Muhammadu Buhari and I believe unequivocally, that the resources of Nigeria must be used for Nigerians. It must be available to farmers, the traders, those who need jobs, the young, the old and everyone in between.
ln Jigawa today, I visited the Kasuwan Tipa and Dutse modern market to monitor the ongoing disbursement of Trader Moni loans.
Trader Moni is one of the distinct loan products of the Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme (GEEP). It seeks to boost the informal sector by enumerating and empowering key players with loans.
The market women, road sellers, artisans and others make up the informal sector. While they remain largely invisible, their contributions to the economy is undebatable.
They are Nigerians and they have a right to the resources of Nigeria. While in Jigawa, I also attended the Jigawa State Youth Empowerment scheme.
