The Nigerian Federal Government has begun distributing the sum of N7.3 billion to the remaining recipients of the Special Public Works Program 774,000. Bank credit alerts have been received in the last two weeks confirming this.
During the budget defense for Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) held by the Senate Committee on Labour and Employment on Monday in Abuja, Minister of State for Labour and Employment Festus Keyamo announced that this will be paid soon.
The Minister claimed that the bank’s difficulties were to blame for the delay and pledged that the FG will resolve the problems by the year’s end. Keyamo assured the audience that the ministry will see to it that the money was distributed. The program, which debuted in 2019, is anticipated to give recipients N20,000 every month for three months.
