774,000 Jobs: FG Empowers Citizens With Wheelbarrows And Cutlasses, Explains Why

Following the directive from President Muhammadu Buhari that the 774,000 jobs scheme should commence, Festus Keyamo the Minister for State, Labour and Employment had empowered some citizens with wheelbarrows and cutlasses as one of the tools in doing the job.

According to him, 774,000 jobs is basically for everyday labourers to carry out community services. He said the Federal Government did not give the labourers expensive equipment because the jobs were just for three months. He also said it would be unwise to spend millions in training labourers on how to use the machines just for a three-month job.

He made it known that the labourers would earn N20,000 monthly in the space of three months.
