What DSTV, MTN, Others Must Do During COVID-19 Lockdown - Keyamo

The Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has debunked the website for the recruitment of 774, 000 Nigerians under the Federal Government’s Special Public Works programme.

Recall that Buhari had approved the engagement of 774, 000 Nigerians on Special Public Works programme in the country.

Buhari gave approval in a bid to tackle the effect of COVID-19 across the country.

The Minister while speaking on the development noted that the website is used for the recruitment is fake.

The statement reads, “My attention has been drawn to a certain advertorial circulating on Social Media tilted ‘Application Opens For 774,000 Employment By FG: See Requirements, Salary And How To Apply’.”

“The advertorial goes ahead to state Stipends and Commissions, Requirements, How To Apply, Closing Date, etc.”

“As the Supervising Minister over the National Directorate of Employment in which the Special Public Works Programme of the Federal Government is domiciled, and having conferred with the Director-General, Dr Nasiru Ladan Mohammed Argungu, we wish to alert members of the public that the said advertorial or anything of such presently circulating is fake and should be disregarded.”

“I have just finished a consultation with the Hon. Minister of Finance and we are presently working out how the scope of the program would be expanded and executed with other relevant Ministries and stakeholders across the country.”

He noted that Nigerians will be informed when the President approves modalities for the recruitment.

“The public would be duly informed by this office when all the modalities have been graciously approved by Mr President.”

“We are also informed of instructions by certain persons going round in some States to the effect that names of those to be employed under the program should be compiled. We also urge these people not to embark on an exercise in futility as the guidelines for such recruitment and those to be involved have not been released by the agency.”

“Finally, we assure all that this well-intentioned program of the Federal Government would be carefully planned and executed in such a way as to meet its target of empowering the largely unskilled labour in rural areas,” he added.
