It was gathered that the Senior Special Assistant to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Media, Laolu Akande, on Friday disclosed that the Federal Government has employed 200, 000 graduates to work as teachers and agricultural extension workers in the country.


Speaking at the second Presidential economic communication workshop in Abuja, the Vice President’s aide said those employed will earn N30,000 monthly.

Disclosing that the new employees would work in their states of residence, the VP’s media aide said their local governments would be in charge of their supervision.

Akande said the selection process was completed “a couple of weeks back,” but BVN‎ screening for the candidates delayed the exercise.

According to Akande, “We have selected 200,000 graduates out of 500,000. This is the first batch.

“One hundred and fifty thousand will work as teachers while 50, 000 will work as extension workers.

“Their pay which is 30, 000 per month, will go directly into their account.‎”

This is coming at a time when a cross section of Nigerians berated the Federal Government for not living up toits promise of engaging 200,000 unemployed graduates under the N-power jobs programme before the end of October

    Olorun ko ni gbagbe awa to ku ooooo.

    when will the Npower knowledge start?


  3. Any graduate worthy of his degree will not take such appointment for N30,000 when there are.other jobs they can do for much more eg professional driving etc.


  4. This is disgraceful!!! 30,000 naira a month! What is the monthly salary package if a House of Rep?


  5. At least half bread is better than non.


  6. It’s a matter of choice. Offer and acceptance. Because they know they must start somewhere.
