Published

Keyamo and Buhari

The Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has vowed to resign if the recruitment of 774, 000 persons is hijacked by politicians.

Keyamo said this while inaugurating the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Extended Special Public Works Across the 774 Local Government Areas of the Federation on Wednesday.

Recall that Buhari had on April 6, approved the engagement of 774, 000 Nigerians on the Special Public Works programme in the country.

The approval was given in a bid to tackle the effect of COVID-19 across the country.

Speaking to the committee set up to strategize for the implementation of the job creation, Keyamo noted that the pilot scheme was approved to be implemented in five local government areas in eight states of Adamawa, Borno, Ebonyi, Edo, Ekiti, Jigawa, Katsina and Kwara.

When asked if the recruitment process won’t be hijacked by politicians, Kayamo assured that it won’t happen, adding that the jobs were not meant for either APC or PDP members.

“This is not for PDP or APC, 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, APC, nor just anything. They just want to get jobs, they just want to feed their family.

“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.” Vanguard quoted him as saying.

Chen Qiushi

Three people who dared to expose the true scale of coronavirus in China have been missing for two months now.

Three whistle-blowers who tried to inform the world about the true scale of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan are still missing two months after vanishing from the public sight, Dailymail has reported.

Chen Qiushi, Fang Bing and Li Zehua have been missing since February after making the revelation.

The three citizen journalists had sought to expose the true scale of the outbreak from the then epicentre by uploading videos to YouTube and Twitter, both banned in mainland China.

Chen, 34, has not been heard from since 7 pm local time on February 6.

He arrived in Wuhan just before the city went into lockdown in hopes of providing the world with the truth of the epidemic, as he said himself.

His reports detailed horrific scenes including a woman frantically calling family on her phone as she sits next to a relative lying dead in a wheelchair and the helpless situation of patients in the overstretched hospitals.

He had been planning to visit a ‘fang cang’ makeshift hospital before evaporating.

His disappearance was revealed by a post on his Twitter account, which has been managed by a friend authorised to speak on his behalf.
