N-POWER: Federal Govt Announces New Plan For Npower Batch A & B Beneficiaries

The President Muhammadu Buhari administration says N-Power beneficiaries, who have concluded the two-year job programme, will now be able to access permanent job opportunities or business prospects. This is part of the newly-activated N-power exit strategy, NAN reports.

The initiative is for Batches A and B of the N-Power programme. The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, gave the update on Wednesday.
She spoke 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).

The scheme is 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 dissemination of information”, Sadiya said.

The government said another 30,000 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.

  1. Once again, I urge federal government of Nigeria to endeavour to fufil the Nexit package promises made to the exited Npower volunteers ( I mean batch A and batch B). Going by the remarks on Facebook made by the volunteers, they have become absolutely fed up with the promises given to them and still unfulfilled by the government. Therefore, honouring the promises made to the affected or exited volunteers by dispensing the Nexit package, will restore hope, trust and confidence in them in the President Muhammadu Buhari’s government and administration. In addition, it will reduce to some extent the rising unemployment level and eventually amount to economic growth of the country.
    Thanks for your understanding!
