They’re not calling them “Obama phones” in Nigeria. Other than that, it’s pretty much the same scam.

A Nigerian opposition party has condemned a government scheme to give 10 million mobile phones for free to farmers.

All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) General Secretary Tijani Tumsa said the plan was a “mischievous vote-catching exercise” for the 2015 elections.

Last week, the agriculture minister said the phones would help farmers “drive an agriculture revolution”.

Akinwumi Adesina said their purchase would be financed through a tax.

Hey, just like here in America!
