Ekiti Govt. Set to Begin Recruitment for Special Public Works Programme
Ekiti State Government is set to commence recruitment of qualified applicants for the Federal Government-sponsored Special Public Works programme.
The Chairman, Ekiti State Committee on Special Public Works Programme and Chief of Staff to the Governor, Mr Biodun Omoleye made this known to newsmen in Ado Ekiti.
He explained that the recruitment process, which would be handled by the state government and the National Directorate of Employment, NDE, would take place between next week Monday and Wednesday at the 16 local government areas of the state.
Mr Omoleye disclosed that the recruitment exercise had no provision for online registration or registration by proxy, adding that interested applicants are to visit their council areas of origin with their local government attestation letters at 8am each day.
He however stated that those who had earlier participated in the pilot exercise should not apply as such application would amount to double entries, thereby disallowing fresh applicants opportunities to benefit from the programme.
Mr Omoleye said successful candidates would be engaged in public works such as clearing of drains, sweeping, cutting of hedges and roads verges, traffic control, environmental sanitation and beautification.
