The public work program has been rescheduled to 1st November.

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the request of the Minister of State, Labor and Employment, Mr. Festus Keyamo, SAN, to reschedule the commencement date of the Special Public Works Programme from the 1st October to 1st November, 2020.

The programme is engaging 1000 persons from each of the 774 Local Government Areas in the country for menial jobs for three months.

A statement signed by the Minister in Abuja yesterday, stated that the approval was based principally on his memo to the President informing him that most of the proposed sites are water logged due to the recent flooding and he said it could be executed more during the dry seaskn.

“It is believed that by the 1st of November most of the project sites would be ready for work,” the statement said.
