All beneficiaries must be dully registered and verified before payment can be made, Mr Festus Kayemo vows

Over 59 Billion naira was assigned to be spent on the 774, 000 jobs, which intend to empower 1000 persons each in all the 774, 000 local government areas in Nigeria

20, 000 will be given as stipend to all beneficiaries for the period of 3 months


The Minister of Labour, Employment at the state level, Mr Festus Kayemo precise words

“The second tranche of payments will not commence until everyone duly registered as participants of the programme have received the first tranche of payments. The monies aren’t with the banks. The CBN credits the accounts in the banks if the banks have put their houses in order”

“After eliminating the issue of multiple accounts with same BVN and other anomalies as directed by my office, I can confirm that Zenith Bank has started paying SPW participants today. For those who have not received, they will DEFINITELY be paid, if they are duly registered.”

“Those who have not received payments from two banks will be paid in due time. Until the two banks fulfill the mandate we gave them to ensure the credibility of the accounts and to make sure we eliminate fraud; until that is approved by us, the CBN will not credit those accounts.”

“We want to appeal to everyone, especially those who have not received their first tranche from those two banks, that they will be paid, and everybody will be duly paid before the second tranche begins. And the second tranche will begin soon”

“We don’t want to make errors in haste, especially for me. This is a programme put under my care by Mr. President. I want to make sure that it is fraud-free. That is why I am ensuring that all indices of fraud are eliminated in those accounts before they are credited,”
