The politician revealed this today while inaugurating the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Extended Special Public Works Across the 774 Local Government Areas of the Federation.
According to him, the committee was set up to come up with a strategy for the implementation of the job creation and the pilot scheme was approved to be implemented in five local government areas in eight states of Adamawa, Borno, Ebonyi, Edo, Ekiti, Jigawa, Katsina and Kwara.
He added that it is not a PDP or APC slot thing because the President is targetting ordinary unemployed Nigerians who do not belong to any party and just want to feed their family.
On if it would be hijacked, his words, ”This is not for PDP or APC, who will want slot from my local government because I am a politician, but I assure you it will not happen.
“I will leave this job, if they want to insist that it will happen. Mr. President is targeting ordinary Nigerians who are neither PDP nor APC nor just anything. They just want to get jobs, they just want to feed their family.
“This is not a time for us to empower our followers as politicians. We are going to dig deep, it is one of the recommendation you are going to make, that is why you are here.”
