The Federal Government has commenced shortlisting candidates for the 500,000 jobs it promised, as well as the N5000 it promised to pay Nigerian youths.

Speaking on Tuesday when a delegation of the National Council for Women’s Societies (NCWS) paid him a courtesy visit in his office in Abuja, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, disclosed that the Federal Government has commenced shortlisting candidates for the 500,000 jobs it promised.

The outspoken minister said that applications were being received and government had started processing them for the recruitment.

“The process for the recruitment has started. About 1.2 million people applied and they classified them into categories including agriculture support officers, teachers, technical officers and so on,” he said.

Lai Mohammed also said that the payment of N5,000 conditional cash transfer promised by the government would begin before the end of the month. He said the Minister of Finance, Dr Kemi Adeosun had earlier announced this.

He reiterated the commitment of the government to improving the well-being and standard of living of the citizens.

“We are very concerned about the welfare of Nigerians and we are not sleeping; we are working day and night to ensure that the country retraces its step.

“Many of our critics have been unfair to us because many of them know that we did not invent the problems we are facing today.

“This is time to join hands together to support the government to move the nation forward,’’ he said
