Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammad Musa Bello has said the Special Public Works Programme of the federal government which will see the engagement of 774,000 Nigerians across all the local government areas in the country will have positive development of communities across the country.

The minister stated this Tuesday, during the flag–off ceremony of the programme for Adamawa state at Ribadu Square in Yola.

Malam Bello explained that the programme in which 21,000 young men and women from the 21 local government areas of the state will be constructively engaged for three months was intended to mitigate the negative socio-economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The minister also revealed that the beneficiaries of the programme will be engaged in the provision of services critical to the rehabilitation and maintenance of public and social infrastructure in communities across state, adding that the initiative demonstrated quite clearly the efforts and determination of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to identify with, and protect the most vulnerable members of the society.
