After several delays, the government has finally kicked off the controversial Special Public Works Programme designed to engage 774,000 unemployed Nigerians, nationwide. The programme is designed to employ 1,000 people from each of the 774 local government areas in the country and will be coordinated by constituted state committees. The programme was earlier slated to start on October 1, but President Muhammadu Buhari approved the postponement of the scheme owing to floods in some of the project sites. The beneficiaries of the programme will earn U.S.$53 (N20,000) monthly.
