The much anticipated 774,000 jobs for Nigerians has been shifted to kick-off at a later date than previously announced by the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo.

The  rainy season was identified as key factor responsible for the shift in the take-off date for the 774,000 public in November 1.

The new job offers, under the Special Public Works Programme, were initially scheduled to take off on October 1.

But the government said some of the proposed project sites had become waterlogged.

A statement by the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Mr. Festus Keyamo (SAN), said the capturing of those to be engaged by the selected banks was in progress.

The statement said: “President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the request of the Minister of State, Labour and Employment, to reschedule the commencement date of the Special Public Works Programme from October 1 to November 1, 2020.
