The reactions trailing the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, SAN over the mode of application for the 774,000 Special Public Works is similar to the stream that surrounds both materials and cash of transfer during the last lockdown covid-19 palliative across the state and Local government in Nigeria.
Keyamo, who earlier had an altercation with the Nigeria’s National Assembly over execution and implementation of the programmes has further elicited more reactions from Nigerians over his announcement on his twitter handle yesterday.
He said: ” 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 the 1000 per LGA. The selection will be done from LGA to LGA, not in States’ NDE offices.”
How Nigerians reacts to his new directives monitored on his twitter handle:
Amadi Dike : It’s an APC affair, no non APC member will get this I can assure you guys, here in Rivers State, they have already collated names of APC members loyal to Rotimi Amaechi, the coordinators of this program are all APC Leaders. It’s an APC thing.
AREWA A YAU: Same thing happen during Jonathan ‘You Win Programme’ so is normal.
Shittu Akeem: To the acclaimed less privileges, don’t worry ds job was meant for u.The kind Almajiri job was actually designed to perpetually manipulating d mind of d masses.when did u hear CBN job or even civil service?or u think Mr Keyamo children will apply for ds kind job?
Godman Karimo: Why was the number (774,000) not shared according to states? Knowing that one state will get 44,000 of her youths employed & another will get just 8,000 employed is an imbalanced scenario. NASS should review this. States whose resources may b used to pay may not benefit adequately.
Shuaibu Yahya Imam: Why can’t you go and told state governor to create new local governments.? Since you are envier of those states that have many local governments.
Awofeso Rasheed: Why conflicting statement? reporting lines appears incongruent.
