Nigerians Reacts As Federal Government Employs 200,000 Graduates, Places Them On N30,000 Salary

The Presidency says it has completed the selection process for the employment of 200,000 graduates for the N-Power programme designed to engage 500,000. The Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.

“We have selected 200,000 graduates out of 500,000. This is the first batch, 150,000 will work as teachers while 50, 000 will work as extension workers. Their pay which is 30, 000 per month, will go directly into their account,” he said.

He said the selection process was completed “a couple of weeks back,” but that BVN‎ screening for the candidates delayed the exercise. Akande explained that the new employees would work in their states of residence. He added that another leg of the social intervention programme, which is conditional cash transfer to the poor, would kick off soon.

mrs_rahanaThis is actually good news. Better to have a 30k job than being home doing nothing. People who need it will appreciate it n it will definitely get better.
