774,000 Jobs: Buhari Approves November 1 Commencement For Special Public Works

PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari already authorized the proposal of the Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Mr. Festus Keyamo, SAN, to reschedule the commencement date of the Special Public Works Programme from the 1st October to 1st November, 2020.

The programme is committing 1000 persons from each of the 774 Local Government Areas in the country for menial jobs which will last for three months.

A statement approved by the Minister in Abuja yesterday, noted that the authorization was based primarily on his memo to the President notifying him that most of the proposed project areas were still water logged and the rains have not moderated, whereas the programme was planned for execution during the dry season.

“It is believed that by the 1st of November most of the project sites would be ready for work,” the statement said.

It also stated that, “Meanwhile, capturing of those to be engaged by the selected Banks was progressing seamlessly across the 774 LGAs in the country.

More information about the banks connected to specific LGAs can be seen on the project’s website
