Osun West Senator Adelere Oriolowo, has written off the Federal Government’s 774,000 Special Public Works (SPW) Programme as undesirable.

Oriolowo said the N52 billion voted for the programme would have been of greater benefit if used to establish industries in the 109 senatorial districts to provide employment for youths or created skills acquisition schemes.

He condemned the resort to “money sharing” by governments and politicians, saying it was partly responsible for youth restiveness.

Oriolowo spoke while delivering a public lecture at The Wings Schools, Iwo, Osun State yesterday.

He spoke on “ Connecting Nigeria to its Teeming Youth: Detonating Time Bomb,” a topic adopted by the authorities of the institution to mark the International Youth Day.
