Nigerian Government Owes Us Three Months’ Salaries – Beneficiaries Of 774,000 Special Public Scheme Cry Out

Some staff members of the Federal Government’s 774,000 Special Public Plan shouted after being owed for months.

The federal government has been called upon by some workers among its 774,000 special public works programs.

Staff lamented that the government did not pay them three months’ salary, according to a report by Sahara Reporters. The workers, in separate interviews with SaharaReporters, said most of them who used some commercial bank had not yet received their money.

State Minister for Labor and Employment Festus Keyamo said in June that wages had been paid to beneficiaries.

According to data provided by the minister, around 413,630 Nigerians, from rural communities and mostly itinerant workers, had been paid.

However, some of the beneficiaries explained that they had not received a cent of the money allocated to the national project in the past three months.

Speaking on Monday, one said there was no remuneration on bank accounts managed by the United Bank of Africa (UBA). The two workers interviewed are residents of Ogbomosho in Oyo State.

Siyanbola Ojo said: “The majority of us have not been paid. I think there is a problem with those of us who use UBA banks and maybe others. I went to my bank to complain. When they showed me the account details, they didn’t match my contact details.

Maybe it was the department or the bank. They told me they were there. “Then on the website there is a statement that always says: ‘Based on your contribution, the following participant (s) appear to be on the main or additional selection list. The participant has not been registered but is on the list.

Please enter it.

Corroborating the story, another affected beneficiary, Mr. Oladeji Olanrewaju told SaharaReporters he had not been paid for three months. “I just found out that there was nothing on my account. I went to my bank, it’s UBA.

They said those of us with UBA bank accounts weren’t credited. We haven’t been paid for every three months. They just promised they would do something about it, but nothing yet, ”Olanrewaju said.

The minister said the program had achieved a 60 percent success rate. “So we started implementation in January 2020 in eight states. We just started a month after the start of implementation when COVID-19 hit. So we couldn’t actually complete the exercise at that point.

The federal government then released one-month allowances to pay beneficiaries in those eight states, ”he said.
