The Federal Government has inaugurated the States’ Selection Committees on Extended Special Public Works for the recruitment of 774,000 Nigerians to be engaged under the programme.

A statement issued by the government on Tuesday said the virtual inauguration of the committees was conducted by the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, in Abuja.

Keyamo said that the committees would be responsible for identifying and recruiting 1,000 from each of the 774 Local Government Areas in the country.

He said that the committees would also identify the public works to be executed in each of the Local Government Areas in all the states, in addition to projects already identified by several federal ministries and agencies across the country.

The minister explained that the Federal Government would engage the recruited persons for three months, from October to December 2020, in road construction, urban and rural sanitation, health extension and other services.

According to him, the recruited Nigerians would receive a total of N60,000 each (N20, 000 per month).

Keyamo charged the committees to reach out to various sectors in their different states to recruit eligible persons.

He added that the names and phone numbers of members of the committees would immediately be made public for easy access by Nigerians.

The inauguration was attended by Director General, National Directorate of Employment, Dr Nasiru Argungu, and virtually by the chairmen and secretaries of the state selection committees.
