Jubilation For Youths As Senator Abaribe Discloses Date The 774,000 FG Jobs May Be Reviewed

It will be recalled that the national assembly has through its house committee on labour suspended the federal government program which aims to recruit 1000 people from each local government into a 3 months job. 

The suspension was as a result of the misunderstanding between the state minister of labour Festus Keyamo, SAN and the house committee which resulted the committee to send him away from the place of the meeting.

The attitude of the minister vexed not only the House of Representatives but also the Senate. The senators had in their last plenary mandated the principal officers of the National assembly to meet the president on the issue and report back to the them on the outcome.

On Thursday the Senate president Ahmad Lawal and speaker of the House of Representatives met with the president to discuss on the issue. They made it clear to the president that he should caution his appointees before they contaminate the peaceful and friendly relationship between the executive and the national assembly. The president has since cautioned all his appointees and heads of Ministries, departments and agencies to behave themselves and respect the national assembly.

Senator Abaribe who is the current minority leader of the Senate has during an interview with the Punch explained that they have not had any plenary since the return of the principal officers from the presidency. He hinted that on Tuesday the senate will take a stand on the issue after listening to the outcome of the meeting between their principal officers and the president.
