Senate President sacks Minister of Labour from handling job recruitment

Reports from the red chambers in Abuja says that ; Senator Ahmad Lawan, President of the Senate has declared that Festus Keyamo, Minister of State for Labour and Employment, will not handle the recruitment of 774,000 youths into the controversial federal governmemt’s Special Public Works scheme.

According to Lawan, in a resolution reached on Monday, the National Directorate of Employment will be fully in charge of the exercise.

He, however, said that the NDE and the Ministry Labour and Productivity must first explain the modalities for the recruitment process.

Lawan stated this during an interactive session with journalists in Abuja. He said, “Only NDE will implement this programme. The NDE led by the ministry of labour will have to come and explain.

“It will be unfair to say that we in the legislature and executive are not on the same page because of an action by someone in the executive. “What the National Assembly is insisting on is in national interest.”

The National Assembly had last week asked President Muhammadu Buhari to suspend the programme, following a face-off between one of his ministers and the joint panel of the two chambers of the federal parliament.

Recall that the federal lawmakers last Tuesday, walked out Keyamo, following his refusal to apologise after the legislators accused him of raising his voice against them.

The incident happened at an investigative hearing organised by the National Assembly Joint Committee on Employment, Labour and Productivity.
