FG to Pay Private School Teachers, Artisans – Osinbajo
The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, said on Thursday that the Federal Government is creating a “payroll support” for private schoolteachers and artisans to cushion the untoward economic effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on them.
He added that the Federal Government had secured land in 11 states of the federation to build thousands of two-bedroom apartments for Nigerians at the cost of N2m each.
He also declared that he was too busy to think about the 2023 elections.
Osinbajo spoke at the ongoing 60th Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association.
He featured on the “state of the nation” session with the theme, “A stimulating exchange on the State of the Nation,” moderated by the Publisher of ThisDay newspaper, Mr Nduka Obaigbena.
The vice president said the Federal Government’s efforts were geared towards saving jobs and creating new ones amid the pandemic.
