But, some of the responses she got after the post were from angry N-Power beneficiaries who were yet to get their June and July stipends.
The beneficiaries replied that it is unfair of her to wish them a happy Sallah celebration when they have not been paid their outstanding salaries.
The N-Power scheme is a social intervention programme of the federal government of Nigeria which is managed by her Ministry.
About 500,000 beneficiaries are employed by the scheme under its Batch A and B, while the process of recruiting another 400,000 Nigerians as Batch C beneficiaries of the scheme is still ongoing.
