The Argument On 774,000 JOBS Laid To Rest – Lauretta Onochie

This is the Approved 2020 reversed budget and Nõ 25 specifically laid the argument to rest

The project was approved, appropriated, and domiciled in the National Directorate of Employment, NDE, for execution while other’s projects are domiciled in the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment.

The rule of law must be applied in everything we do under the current President, Muhammadu Buhari. As he is, so he expects all of us to be. Let’s abide by our laws.

The DG of NDE, Dr. Nasir Ladan, along with his team at the NDE, designed the programme and carried out the pilot scheme of the same programme in the selected eight states.

Let’s stop complicating simple issues by taking advantage of a docile media that does not investigate to inform Nigerians correctly.

NDE will complete the good job they started.
God bless Nigeria.

Bauchi State: Women Empowerment With Ten (10) Bags of Pure Water By The First Lady

The wife of the Bauchi State Governor (First Lady) was reported to have on Wednesday 23rd June, 2020 distribute 10 bags of sachet water to some selected women each, as part of an empowerment program in the State.

This development left many people from within and outside Bauchi State wondering about what could have motivated the First Lady to embark on this seeming show of shame.

The photos have been trending online over empowerment which so many people find it very funny and amusing at the same time.

Many are suggesting better package than the one giving by the First Lady will do for “Women Empowerment’.

As the gesture looks like a mockery of the office of a state governor, as even the wife of a good and focus Local Government Council Chairman can do better.
