Nigerians have taken to Twitter to dragg Nigeria Minister Of Labour and Empowerment, Festus Keyemo after he distributed Wheelbarrow and Cutlasses to Nigerians as means of empowerment.
Over the weekend, Keyamo was in Delta state to kick off the launch of the Special Public Works Programme (774,000) jobs in my own Local Government Area (Uvwie LGA). At the ceremony, he distributed wheelbarrows and cutlasses to those who applied for the jobs.
Nigerians were disappointed that such items can be distributed in 2021 and blasted him for this. According to Twitter users, the government should have distributed technologically driven machines that can still do the jobs the wheelbarrows and cutlasses do.
Here’s how they reacted to it.
