APC Using Nigeria's Money To Buy Voters? Female Senator Makes New Revelation

The plenary session at the floor of the Nigerian Senate in Abuja, on Wednesday, turned ‎rowdy over Federal Government's Social Intervention Programme (SIP).

The fracas started when the Minority Leader, Senator Biodun Olujimi alleged that the programme which was introduced by the Federal Government with Nigeria's moneu is 'biased'.

She said it's being run like it belongs to APC and Bunari. 

The Ekiti female lawmaker alleged that beneficiaries of the programme were being asked to provide details of their Permanent Voter Card (PVC) in the application form.

While presenting a copy of the form as Evidence, she further alleged that ‘I Stand with Buhari’ was written on it, and that the APC is using it as a means to fool voters as if they are getting money to vote for Buhari, when in fact they should receive the SIP money as Nigerians, irrespective of tribe or political affiliation.

before the Majority Leader, Senator Ahmad Lawan, who defended the Buhari-led administration and the programme could speak, the chamber had become noisy.

It was gathered that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) exchanged words across the divide.
