Good news for the participants of the Federal Government’s Special Public Works Programme spread across the 774,00 local government areas in the country as everything is now set for their Bank validation in order to ease their payment of stipends.

Participants would be receiving the monthly stipend of N20,000 from October as soon the Ministry of Labour concluded the whole process as beneficiaries would have to open bank account with valid Bank Verification Number(BVN).

The Minister of State, Labour and Employment made this development known on Tuesday via his verified Twitter handle @fkeyamo obtained by freshpage.com.ng

Keyamo revealed that on Monday, he gave out letters of engagement to six banks, namely Zenith, UBA, Access, Fidelity, FCMB & Heritage to begin the opening of accounts (with BVN) for the 774,000 participants of the Special Public Works Programme in their branches in the 774 LGAs across the country.

He added that the banks assured the government that even in local government areas where they don’t have branches, temporary registration centers would be opened in such local government areas so that the participants would not have to travel far to open their accounts.

Speaking further, Festus Keyamo revealed that the government will soon publish bank that will take care of each local government area across the 774 local government areas in the country.

However, many Nigeria while reacting lamented that they weren’t aware of how the selection of participants were done in their respective local government areas.
