The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, SAN, has cautioned that the Federal Government’s Special Works Programme (SPW) is for all the citizen of Nigerian.

SAN disclosed that, the job programme is not only for members of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

The minister who is in charge of the scheme uncovered this in his verified Twitter account on Sunday.

He also disclosed that he had never direct the forms for the SPW be given to APC members.

Honourable Keyamo said the final list of those for the scheme will be from the States’ Selection Committees.

His tweets read, “I have NOT directed that forms for the SPW be distributed to APC Ward leaders to give to party members.

“Any such list will be discountenanced. THIS IS NOT AN APC PROGRAMME but a programme FOR ALL NIGERIANS. We shall ONLY accept final lists from the States’ Selection Committees.”

The Minister further appealed to all Nigerians to ignore messages informing them to visit offices of the National Directorate of Employment (NDE) to register for the job.

“This will breach COVID-19 guidelines and it will not ensure we strictly achieve 1000 per LGA,” he added.

“The selection will be done from LGA to LGA, not in States’ NDE offices.”
