FG Set To Pay Jobless Youths In Rural Areas Monthly To Keep Their Environment Clean

The Federal Government has In a bid to curb the high rate of unemployment in the country, rolled out a scheme which will see unemployed youths in rural areas earning N20,000 per month....






The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Mr Festus Keyamo (SAN), 
 at a news conference on Thursday said that the youths would be engaged in the clearing of drainages, sweeping markets, road maintenance, traffic control, and cleaning of public infrastructures like health centres and schools.


Keyamo said the scheme targeted 1,000 youths each from the 774 local governments across the country and that the programme is one of the biggest social intervention schemes to be carried out within a short period of time by any government in the history of Nigeria.


The PUNCHng.com reports that the scheme, known as the Special Public Works Programme in the Rural Areas, is domiciled in the National Directorate of Employment for implementation and is expected to take off in October.

    5. Thieves. In my village, everywhere is kept clean by default. Age groups organise themselves and fill roads. That's the culture that should be promoted by sensitising the people on the importance of living in clean environments devoid of stagnant water et al. Creating a culture where people have to be paid to be clean is nothing but theifry BS.

    6. Baskets, setup govt farms and pay people to work there instead. All these schemes with no genuine return is ridiculous. You can't put the nation in debt by borrowing billions and hand them out over dubious schemes. How will you repay the loans? Oil and taxes?

  6. This is a good move provided they will be well paid and the process of employment will be transparent. The process must not be politicized.

  16. Money wey dey no go pay, what is even 20,000 in this modern Nigeria, monei wey no go even reach for feeding not to talk of tfare and housing.

  17. Should we be happy that an unemployed youth is being paid 20,000 in a country blessed with enough material resources? What happened to creating good jobs with better payment? Let's be sincere to ourselves, what is 20,000? Can it carry for a month adequately? Already, states have people doing that already and are being paid 25,000 to 30,000. Why can't the government think out of the box for once? They should give their children the 20,000 and exchange jobless youths with the position of their children in various companies. Nonsense.

  22. Just want to rant...29 May 2020 at 21:59

    How in the world is this a good move? Instead of the government to use this money to set up factories e.g textile factories, food processing factories (we have got food wasting away in rural areas cos of no money for transportation to markets/other states or the individuals willing to buy are exploiting these farmers, some would rather just let their goods waste than sell at the ridiculous prices), the govt can buy from these farmers at a fair price and transport it to the factories, these factories will provide employment for lots of people, plus useful skill acquisition too that will add value and worth to their lives.. what skill is anyone gonna get from sweeping the streets? what will happen to the cleaners that already exist? This is why China's economy is booming, those people are into skill acquisition, one person employs 10 people, train them, these 10 train 20, 20 train 40 and so one... at the end of the day, we are producing enough to start exporting.

    Since you want to give people money for doing something, why don't you get them to do something useful that will help them in the future? In 2 or 3 years when this scheme gets scrapped cos it will! What then? Future empl:What did you learn form your last job which you held for 2 years? Errm..*scratches head* to sweep really well.πŸ™„

    Nigeria is such a joke. Smfh. It's better the govt should even set up farms and pay people this 20k to farm and manage these farms. We will have so much farm products at the end of the year.. the way it is, since nigeria can't be industrialized, agriculture is the way.

    It won't be easy but it's a start, certainly better than avoiding the problem and coming up with mediocre ideals.
    At this point we should be thinking of ideals that will bring us revenue. All we do is borrow money and spend.

    I'm just so sad seeing this. *sigh!
    Just another scheme to loot money. Simple!
