Keyamo draws battle line with NASS over works programme

Keyamo says the law is on the side, and he’ll not obey illegal directives from lawmakers.
The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has rejected a directive from the National Assembly that he takes a backseat from the implementation of the Special Public Works Programme which seeks to recruit a total of 774,000 Nigerians across the country.

The minister was last week involved in a war of words with a Joint Committee on Labour and Employment when he appeared before the lawmakers who questioned his influence on the project, including the alleged exclusion of the National Directorate of Employment (NDE) expected to implement recruitment for the programme for which N52 billion has been budgeted.
