The President, Muhammadu Buhari has approved the request of Festus Keyamo to reschedule the commencement date of the special public work program from 1st October to the first of November, 2020. Festus Keyamo made this known through his Twitter handle today.
The program which had been suspended about two months ago due to the clash between Festus Keyamo and some journalists has now been reinstated.
The program is meant to employ 1000 people from each of the 774 local governments in Nigeria. This would definitely create employment for 774,000 citizens across the country between the space of three months.
