NASS suspends planned to recruitment for FG job



… Flaws Scheme for opacity

SENATE and the House of Representatives have asked the federal government to put on hold the implementation of the 774,000 jobs until the processes and modalities are explained to the federal lawmakers.

   The decision is apparently an offshoot of the altercation between the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Kayemo and some senators during a public hearing of the proposal on Monday.

  In a joint statement signed by the spokesmen of both chambers of the national assembly, Senator Ajibola Basiru and Hon. Benjamin O. Kalu, the lawmakers also invited the minister of labour and employment, Chris Ngige for explanations.

  In addition, the lawmakers stated that it was within their constitutional right as the representatives of the people to know the processes public workers are engaged by the government.

 The statement titled “FG Public Works Program Must Benefit Nigerians”, read, “Implementation of the 774,000 Public Works to be put on hold until implementation modalities explained to NASS. The National Assembly is concerned about the proper and effective implementation of the engagement of 774,000 Public Works Workers and wishes to restate its commitment to its success”.
