Lauretta Onochie, special assistant to the president on social media, has lauded Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo for his commitment towards the TraderMoni scheme, officially called Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme (GEEP).
Onochie, via her Twitter handle, described the number two citizen as the best.
According to her, ordinary Nigerians are having a share of the national wealth for the first time.
Osinbajo has been moving from state to state to help petty traders expand their trade through the provision of collateral-free loans of N10,000.
The loans are repayable within a period of six months.
Onochie accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of wanting to stop the TraderMoni initiative and “to take food out of the mouth of these lovely Nigerians”.
She also took a swipe at Peter Obi, running mate of Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the PDP, punning his surname from Obi to “Obi-tuary”.
A Twitter user, @laulauspender, had tweeted “TRADER MONI The 10,000 collateral-free loan to traders means nothing to those who do not need it but means alot to real petty traders who need it.”
Replying the tweet, Onochie wrote: “This is what they are coming to stop They want to return to take food out of the mouth of these lovely Nigerians.
“For the first time, ordinary Nigerians have a share in our national wealth. There will be no Peter Obi-tuary for this scheme. Thanks @ProfOsinbajo. Your the best.”
In another tweet, Onochie accused Obi of bigotry, saying he has no business in the presidency.
“If as a leader in Anambra State, he divided predominantly Christian Anambra State along Christian Denomination Lines, he has no business in Abuja! When he says, #LetsGetNigeriaWorkingAgain, he means, let’s divide Nigeria along class, ethnic and religious lines. #NoToBigotry.”
