774 Thousand Jobs: Reps Requests to Halt Programme

Nigeria’s lower legislative house on Tuesday has asked the Federal government to halt the take-off of the 774,000 special works programme now scheduled to commence in January 2021.

The House Reps members also asked the Ministry of Finance not to release the funds meant for the programme until some issues that affects the integrity of the programme are sorted out.

While contributing to the debate, Hon. Onofiok Luke said there was the need to suspend the programme because there are silent issues which bother on the integrity of the legislature and the need to build institutions, adding that since it has been shifted to 2021, there was the need to suspend its implementation until there is provision made for it in the 2021 budget.
