N-Power

The Federal Government has stated that beneficiaries who have concluded the two-year N-Power job programme will be engaged to access permanent job opportunities or business prospects.

This according to the government is part of the N-Power exit plan.

The new development was announced on Wednesday, January 20, by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq.

Speaking at the 4th annual review of the Home Grown School Feeding Programme (NHGSFP), Hajiya Farouq, said the new plan is for Batches A and B of the N-Power scheme.

Under the plan which is operated by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), about 200,000 beneficiaries will be employed as financial services operators on the platform of Shared Agent Network Expansion Facility (SANEF).

She said: “Plans have been concluded for the transition of the N-power Batch A and B through the creation of the NEXIT portal, which would allow those who choose to sign up to access other government empowerment opportunities.

“A beneficiary management system for the NSIPs is expected to be deployed in 2021. It would have the capacity to manage payments, address grievances and improve dissemination of information.”
