Keyamo, reps at loggerheads over “Special Works Project”

by Kunle Awosiyan

The Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Ndudi Elumelu has described the allotment of 30 of the 1000 slots per local government in the Federal Government’s ‘Special Works Project, as grossly unfair and unacceptable by Nigerians and the lawmakers, who are the true representatives of the people.”

Elumelu is demanding “more transparency and a review of the criteria being used for the allotment, which is alleged to favour certain interests in the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to the detriment and disadvantage of majority of other Nigerians.”

Control of the project aimed at providing jobs for 774,000 Nigerians across the 774 local governments has been a bone of contention between the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Mr. Festus Keyamo, who was originally put in charge of the project by President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Assembly which desires to control its execution
