Nigeria’s Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq, claims that the N-Power scheme is “being reformed and revamped”
While speaking at the Cyprian Ekwensi Center for Arts and Culture, Garki, Abuja on Thursday during the launch of the Federal Government Special Cash Grant for Rural Women,
Farouq said that the various National Social Investment Programmes (NSIPs) of the apex government have had a major impact on the country’s poor and vulnerable state.
Since its establishment in 2016, over 12 million households have benefited from the National Social Investment Program (NSIPs) interventions,
including the payment of a monthly Conditional Cash Transfer of N5,000.00 to 1 million indigent households to safeguard them from financial crises, according to the Zamfara-born politician.
The N-Power program provides 500,000 unemployed young people with temporary income-generating opportunities, while 8,612,457 primary 1-3 pupils in selected public schools receive 1 meal per day under the National Home Grown School Feeding Program (NHGSFP), Farouq said.
“These programmes are being restructured and revamped.”
Since 8 June 2016, the N-Power scheme has been established by the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, to address the issues of youth unemployment and to help boost social development.
The scheme was created as a component of National Social Investment Program, “to provide a structure for large scale and relevant work skills
acquisition and development and to ensure that each participant will learn and practice most of what is necessary to find or create work,” according to Nigerian authorities.
The recipients of Batch A N-Power were withdrawn from the scheme in June 2020, while their Batch B counterparts, who were registered in 2018, were withdrawn in July 2020.
The recruitment process for Batch C recipients began in Q3 2020, but the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, saddled with N-Power duties, has not announced anything specific to the next phase of the recruitment process to date.* BEST DEALS & OFFERS*
