Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has warned Nigerians to disregard messages directing them to register for the Special Public Works.

POLITICS NIGERIA had reported that the federal government had set up the progamme which will engage some Nigerians in carrying out public services such as street sweeping, waste disposal, road maintenance, and others.

The government has, however, officially begun the recruitment of 774,000 Nigerians across the country’s 774 local government areas into the programme.
According to the government, the State Selection Committees have been inaugurated and have commenced work.

But in a tweet on Saturday, Keyamo said nobody should go to any state offices of the National Directorate of Employment, NDE, to register for the 774,000 jobs.
According to the minister, such a directive would breach the social distancing and other COVID-19 precautionary guidelines.

Keyamo explained that the selection would be done at local government levels and not at NDE state offices.

He tweeted: “Kindly disregard all messages directing people to go to NDE offices to register for the Special Public Works.

“This will breach COVID-19 guidelines and it will not ensure we strictly achieve 1000 per LGA. The selection will be done from LGA to LGA, not in States’ NDE offices.”
