In what looks like a show of mistrust between the senators and the minister of state for labour Bar Festus Keyamo at the National Assembly on Tuesday 30 June, there was exchange of hot words resulting to both parties shouting at one another.
What looked like a bottle up sentiment began when the Director-General of the NDE, Mr. Nasiru Ladan, could not defend the N52bn budgeted for the recruitments of 774,000 Nigerians under the NDE
The Minister said his ministry was asked to supervise the recruitments by President Muhammadu Buhari
The federal lawmakers, however, disagreed with Keyamo and the shouting spree ensued.
It would be recalled that on Monday 29 June when during the inauguration of the state coordinators , the minister said they should not take directives from any politician at the state or anywhere.
