His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari has given the go ahead for the commencement of the recruitment exercise of 774,000 youths for the Special Public Works across the country. This will be done by the Ministry of Labour and Productivity in partnership with the Nigeria Directorate of Employment (NDE).
This is of course against the directive by the house committee members in charge of monitoring the process who had earlier directed that the programme be suspended.
Since the commencement of this recruitment exercise, a lot of interested Nigerians have been asking questions about how to apply for this job. Many believe the website; https://specialpublicworks.gov.ng/ should be the recruitment portal, but they are shocked to realize the application isn’t online.
This is quite different from Npower and other programmes initiated by federal government. The essence of the website is to disseminate information concern the program and intimate Nigerians on the modalities involved in the selection process.
Also, the website contains the list committee members who are in charge of the selection process in each state of the federation.
To apply for the program which will kick off in December and will pay those selected 20,000 monthly for three months, go to any Zonal/State office of the Nigeria Directorate of Employment close to you and pick a form to register.
