FG to compensate Civilian JTF for role in fighting insurgency


Senator Chris Ngige, Minister of Labour and Employment

The Federal Government says it will train the Civilian JTF in various vocational skills and empower them to become self-reliant.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, made this known while speaking after a tour of the North East Zone Skills Upgrading Training Centre in Bauchi on Tuesday.

Ngige stated that the empowerment of the JTF members is with a view to compensating them  for the role they played in fighting insurgency in the North East.

“The ministry of Defence and Chief of Defence Staff are all worried about how we can rehabilitate and equip those guys in the Civilian JTF that has helped the government to fight the Boko Haram insurgency.

“Most of them are going to be sent to the skills centre, and after their training they will be empowered to make and practice whatever trade they have learnt.
