Keyamo, Lawmakers in shouting match over 774,000 jobs
By Chuks Nneji
The Minister of State for Labour, Employment and Productivity, Mr Festus Keyamo, engaged members of the National Assembly in a shouting match on Tuesday over the National Directorate of Employment recruitment exercise.
Trouble started when the Director-General of the NDE, Mr. Nasiru Ladan, could not defend the N52 billion budgeted for the recruitment of 774,000 Nigerians under the NDE.
The minister said his ministry was asked to supervise the recruitments by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd).
The federal lawmakers, however, disagreed with Keyamo and that was when the bubble was burst.
