We are pleased to inform the general public and most especially applicants who applied for the 774,000 Jobs that the federal government has started the distribution of tools for the Special Public Works Program.
Recall that the SPW Program was initiated by the Federal Government to create 774,000 jobs across the 774 Local Government Areas in the country.
Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN) disclosed this on Sunday, saying works would commence before the official flag off next week Sunday.
“We will start the distribution (of the equipment) this week to the various states and local governments for the work. We will use the first week of November to fine tune our register of the participants, to brief coordinators, to brief supervisors as to how the work will go and identify the spots to be done.
“In a way, we will start with debriefing and then the mapping out of areas of work. Actual field work may start in the next few days. Not only field work, but the formal flag-off by the government officials that will go to different parts of the country to flag off.
“Field work may start even before the actual flag-off. It may start three to four days before the ceremonial flag off.
The Special Public Works (SPW) Programme is dry season/off season transient jobs and rehabilitation/maintenance of social infrastructure.
The SPW Programme is designed to employ 1,000 persons from each of the 774 Local Government Areas of the country.
