FG announces intention to hire more humanitarian workers


The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation has announced the intentions of the Federal Government to employ more aid workers to speed up humanitarian response time across the country.

Betta Edu, minister for humanitarian affairs explained that the initiative which would be on a temporal basis was part of the government’s effort to reduce the rate of unemployment in the country.

The intended recruitment was made in order to speed up humanitarian response times.

She said:

“This will not only reduce unemployment but will improve our response time and the quality of response going forward.

“These people will be hired for three months in the first instance, and if the crisis is protracted, they may be made to stay 6 months or one year maximum.”
