You must have heard that Festus Keyamo, SAN, Minister of State for Labour and Employment, has revealed that the sum N52 billion has been appropriated for the Federal Government's proposed 774,000 jobs.
The programme approved by Mr President was designed to fight lack of job opportunities in the rural areas through a short-term engagement of 1,000 unemployed persons per Local Government Area for a period of three (3) months. It is a dry season job programme and was designed for the rehabilitation/maintenance of public and social infrastructures.
"This means that 1000 persons per LG is going to be recruited for just 3 months."
Participants are going to be paid an allowance of N20,000 monthly and will to be recruited largely from the pool of unskilled persons ordinarily resident in those rural areas.
This means that the pay is N20,000 per month and those to be recruited are those that are not educated.
This scheme was approved to be implemented in ﬁve local government areas in eight states namely: Adamawa, Borno, Ebonyi, Edo, Ekiti, Jigawa, Katsina and Kwara.
Those that will be recruited will be engaged in:
