Over three million Nigerians youths have applied for about 400,000 job spaces in the third batch of the Federal Government’s N-Power programme.
The applicants applied for the programme through the online portal of the N-Power scheme opened on June 26, 2020 for applications.
N-Power is one of the National Social Investment Programmes of the Federal Government.
Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development said on Friday that it would absorb 400,000 applicants as Batch C beneficiaries.
The ministry’s Deputy Director, Information, Rhoda Iliya, said, “Enrolment of beneficiaries for N-Power Batch C commenced on June 26, 2020 and has received over three million applications since the portal opened.
“The application process will be concluded as soon as possible to provide additional Nigerian youths access to the programme.”
Humanitarian Affairs Minister, Sadiya Umar-Farouq, noted that as the ministry had commenced the transition of Batch A and B N-Power beneficiaries, it would conclude activities of the independent monitors enrolled with those two batches by July 31, 2020.
