774,000 jobs: Beneficiaries Protest Over Non-Payment Of N20,000 Wage

Beneficiaries of the federal government’s Special Public Works (SPW) programme have complained over the reported non-payment of their wages for three months.

VAMnews learnt that some of the beneficiaries on social media questioned why their N20,000 monthly stipends have not been paid.


The aggrieved workers reportedly confronted the minister of labour and employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN), about the issue via Twitter. 

Dubagari Jnr, tweeted: “What is happening with the SPW? Up till now, we have not been paid and have successfully finished our work. 

Hon. minister we need explanations on why we have not been paid and you have to start the disbursement before fasting (Ramadan)." 

Abdoul Baqee tweeted: “People are hungry regarding the payment of stipends. Please fast track the payment of these people. 774, 000 people waiting anxiously for their payment with hunger and they don’t even have phone to come to your timeline. When you get hungry just remember those people that work with hunger without their entitlement.” 

Also, The Nation reported that when he was contacted about the non-payments, Keyamo directed the enquiries to Abubakar Fikpo, the acting director-general of the National Directorate of Employment (NDE). 


Fikpo in response said the issue would soon be resolved. He said: “We are still in the process; we have identified some loopholes here and there. We want to verify the BVN of the participants. That is why we are working with the banks. 

 “We are verifying the BVN of those participants in order to avoid double payments to several people or to three or more accounts.”
