“The pilot programme earlier approved by Mr. President was designed to mitigate lack of job opportunities in the rural areas through a short-term engagement”

“This engagement will involve at least 1,000 unemployed persons per local government area for a period of three months.”

“It is a dry season/off-season transient job programme and was originally designed for the rehabilitation/maintenance of public and social infrastructure.”

“And participants were to be paid an allowance of N20,000 monthly and were to be recruited largely from the pool of unskilled persons resident in those rural areas.”

“Some have asked me why there’s no registration portal for the 1000 jobs per Local Government area”

“My answer is, our real targets for these jobs are mostly unskilled rural workers who may not be literate enough & who can’t have access to any portal.”

“The elites think everything is now by internet which has its pros and also it’s known cons”

“While it is inexpedient to ask largely illiterate, itinerant workers to go on the internet and then register for jobs through a portal”

“we shall surely upload their full names & information AFTER RECRUITMENT on a website for all to see and the monitoring process would be very transparent”
