According to Keyamo said he “has the instructions of President Buhari to proceed unhindered”.
This current development would mean ignoring the leadership of the National Assembly which asked the Minister to stop the programme.
He said: “I have instructions from Mr. President to proceed. The states selection committees are proceeding already with the programme. Nothing stopped them before.
“National Directorate of Employment (NDE) are part of the programme. The state coordinators of the NDE throughout the country are the secretaries of those committees.
“We will work hard to meet the timeline but if there is any need for a change we will inform Mr. President.”
1,000 persons are expected to be employed by the Special Public Works Programme from each of the 774 Local Government Areas of the country.
