With barely twenty-four hours to the Edo State Governorship Election, the ongoing disbursement of the Micro-Enterprise Enhancement scheme in Edo State-approved by President Muhammad Buhari appears to be generating serious concern as many consider the move as a vote-buying strategy by the All Progressives Congress, APC.
About Two Thousand Women and Youths from the three Senatorial districts in Edo State are to benefit from the Federal Government Micro Enterprise Enhancement Scheme which will run from Tuesday 15 September to Thursday 17 September 2020.
While the social intervention handouts to women and youths in Edo state may be a good initiative, some Edo citizens have questioned the motive behind the disbursement especially with the election around the corner.
But the All progressives congress APC insists the disbursement of the handouts is not political.
Edo citizens will file out on Saturday to decide who emerges from the September 19 Governorship election and only a free, fair, transparent, and credible election can ensure the will of the people prevail.
