Good Morning Everyone and welcome to another Blessed Tuesday.

Welcome to today's article which is going to be based on the Federal Government of Nigeria's Recruitment in each local government across the federation as well as what applicants can do to get selected.

It promises to be educative, informative and interactive.

Please, take time to read through the article one after the other so that you can get the full message being passed across by the writer.

Take note of the points which will be listed in the article and use it as and when due.

The Special Public Work is a Recruitment initiative set up by the federal Government of Nigeria to employ youths from all 774 Local Government Areas in the Country.

The scheme which will be coordinated by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Productivity and the National Directorate of Employment (NDE) is set to employ 774,000 Nigerian youths across the 774 local governments in Nigeria.

Recall that earlier in March President M. Buhari had said the Federal government will employ youths into the Special Public Work (SPW) to cushion the effect of the corona virus pandemic in the country.

The corona Virus pandemic had made different sectors of the economy suffer a lot of setback and this scheme is set to make successful applicants help the workers on ground to speed up the rate of development which has been halt in the course of the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The recruitment will focus on public health, Agriculture, road construction, infrastructural development and other sector.

Also, the scheme which will be flagged off in October 2020 is designed to pay a sum of 20,000 naira to individuals and it will span for few months.

Recall that earlier in this month of July, the Minster of State for Labour and Employment Festus Keyamo SAN had appeared before the Senate to explain the modalities to be employed to ensure the smooth process of the recruitment.

The senators and the Minister had a little disagreement about the mode at which the recruitment process will be done in all local government in the country but all issues has been settled with the recruitment process to start anytime soon.

In this article, we shall be outlining some winning strategies applicants must use in order to increase their chances of making the cut as regards the 774,000 Special Public Work by the Federal Government of Nigeria.

1. Source For Reliable Information.

Do not make mistake, internet fraudsters are everywhere.

I have seen so many people going on google to look for the Special Public Works website address to apply for the recruitment exercise.

The ability of applicants to get hold of accurate Information is going to be a key factor to you being successfully recruited for the scheme.

Applicants are advised to desist from paying any Individual or supply vital Information to any website for the purpose of the recruitment in order to avoid being scammed.

It should be noted that the current issue of corona Virus pandemic had made fraudsters look for different means to swindle people of their money.

However, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment Festus Keyamo SAN had said that the recruitment process will not be done online but will be done at the local government level and the National Directorate of Employment (NDE) Offices nationwide and through the State selection committee.

In lieu of this, interested applicant can also get in touch with their local government of origin secretariat to source for information about registration and also express their interest to apply for the job.

2. Get In Touch With The Selection Committee In your State.

The Honourable Minister of State for Labour and Employment Festus Keyamo SAN noted that the Federal Government would engage the recruited persons for three months between October to December 2020.

The selected applicants will be used in road construction, urban and rural sanitation, health extension and other services, and would pay them a total of N60,000 each (N20, 000 per month).

If you want to increase your chances of being selected for the scheme, applicants should endeavour to reach out to the members of the committee in their respective states.

Mr Festus Keyamo during the virtual inauguration of the state committee last week urged the committee to reach out to various sectors of their different states to recruit eligible persons.

Also, the names and list of committees from different states across the federation had been published for applicants to get across to them for easy access to them.

Below are the names and contact Information of committees from different States.

3. Apply Through Your local Government of Origin.

The Federal government through the Federal ministry of Labour had announced that the Special Public Works recruitment will feature 1000 candidates from each local government across the federation.

Information gathered by CityPost is that the ministry of Labour had secured approval from the President to go ahead with the recruitment so therefore

However, it is advisable that interested applicants obtain their local government identification letter and apply for the scheme through their local government.

Many people in who now reside in the city might make a mistake of applying through their local government of residence rather than their local government of origin and this will reduce their chances of being recruited.

If you are from Saki east local government and you stay in Ibadan south east, endeavour to apply through the local government area of origin in other to increase your chances of getting selected for the job.

In Conclusion, recall that recently the disengagement of Npower beneficiaries came with some backlash from Nigerians. Some youths who are protesting the government decision to disengage them have been calling for the FG to absorb the beneficiaries into different agencies of the government.

However, applicants interested in applying for the SPW Scheme should know that the scheme is not like Npower, it is designed to last for a period of 3 months before successful applicants will be disengaged.
