FG unveils new plan for N-Power beneficiaries


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

This came as part of the newly-activated N-power exit strategy for Batches A and B of the program which has empowered millions across the country.

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, gave the update on Wednesday while speaking at the 4th annual review of the Home Grown School Feeding Programme (NHGSFP).

Under the plan, 200,000 beneficiaries will be engaged as financial services operators under the Shared Agent Network Expansion Facility (SANEF), a scheme that will be operated by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

“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 the dissemination of information,” Sadiya said.

The government said another 30,000 N-power beneficiaries have been engaged as geospatial experts and enumerators in the Economic Sustainability Plan’s Mass Agric programme.

Others will have the option of benefiting from the Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme (GEEP) micro-enterprise loans.
