The minister of state Federal Capital Territory today flags off the federal government special scheme aimed at checking unemployment in the country.
Towards President Muhammadu Buhari’s Efforts in Tackling Unemployment in Nigeria, the honourable minister flagged off the federal government extended special public works programme held at the Lokoja township stadium today, Saturday, January 16, 2021.
The Extended Special Public Works Programme is aimed at addressing mass unemployment among the unskilled youth in Nigeria.

Best wishes to every beneficiary of the project.
