President Muhammadu Buhari has now approved the request of the Minister of State, Labour 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 project sites were still water logged and the rains have not abated, whereas the programme was designed for execution during the dry season.

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

It further stated, “Meanwhile, capturing of those to be engaged by the selected Banks was progressing seamlessly across the 774 LGAs in the country.

Information regarding the banks attached to specific LGAs can be found on the project’s website

www.specialpublicworks.gov.  ng.

“More information are also available with the various State Selection Committees.
