Federal Government has released official website for Nigerians who are willing to enroll for 774,000 special public job recruitment across the country.
The website is: www.specialpublicworks.gov.ng
The website as claimed by the Minister of State for labour and employment, Mr Festus Keyamo, SAN will avail all prospective beneficiaries all necessary information needed prior the commencement of the recruitment process.
For now, Keyamo will appear before the National Assembly Joint Committee on Labour on Tuesday to defend the 774,000 job recruitment across the country.
The Minister is going on the invitation of the Joint Committee after the earlier meeting ended in shouting match.
As claimed by labour minister, ” the programme starts on the 1st of October, 2020. However, we are already running out of time because before October 1, 2020, we still have to select the 774,000 Nigerians, register them, open bank accounts for them and obtain their BVNs. Hence the urgency to proceed with preparations.”
On how much the programme is worth, Keyamo said, “The total sum of N52 billion has been appropriated for this programme. Out of this amount, the sum of N46.44 billion is for the actual payment of the stipends of those to be engaged. They will pay through BVN, hence eliminating the possibility of fraud in the payment scheme.
