Mr Festus Keyamo, in Shouting March with Lawmaker over NDE Recruitment

It all began when the Director General of the NDE, Mr. Nasiru Ladan, could not defend the N52 billion budgeted for the recruitment of 774,000 Nigerians under the NDE at an interactive session with the National Assembly joint committee chaired by Senator Godiya Akwashiki.

The federal lawmakers took exception to the submission of Keyamo and emphasised on the legislative body’s oversight functions over the recruitment which resulted in a shouting spree between the committee members and the junior minister.

Members of the Joint National Assembly Committee on Labour on Tuesday engaged in a shouting march with the Minister of State for Employment, Labour and Productivity, Mr Festus Keyamo.

In an attempt to shed more light on the programme, the minister thereafter told the committee that his ministry was specifically asked to supervise the NDE recruitments by President Muhammadu Buhari.
