I will quit my job as minister if politicians wants to hijack the proposed employment of 774,000 Nigerians. -Festus Keyamo


Festus keyamo (SAN), the Minister of State for Labour and Employment has said he will leave Buhari administration if politicians attempt to hijack the employment of 774, 000 Nigerians proposed by Buhari.

Keyamo disclosed this during the inauguration of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Extended Special Public Works across the 774 Local Government Areas in the country.

“This is not for PDP or APC who will want a slot from my local government because I am a politician. But I assure you it will not happen.

“I will leave this job if they want to insist that it will happen. Mr. President is targeting ordinary Nigerians who are neither PDP nor APC members nor just anything. They just want to get jobs to feed their families.

“This is not a time for us to empower our followers as politicians. We are going to dig deep, it is one of the recommendations you are going to make, that is why you are here.” he added.
