APC, Buhari's N-Power Scheme, A Campaign Strategy - Ex-Benef

N-Power is a scheme set up by the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari.

A social media user, Haruna Mohammed has posited that the Nigerian government's N-Power scheme "is now a campaign strategy program".

Mohammed, apparently one of the exited N-Power beneficiaries, also claimed that 'NEXIT beneficiaries will now be hearing from them (Federal authorities) by 2023'.

"I have now come to conclusions that Npower is now a campaign strategy program," Mohammed wrote on his Twitter handle on Wednesday, May 26.

"We the Nexit beneficiarys [sic] will now be hearing from them by 2023. May God bless and help all unemployed youth of these our great country. Ameen."

N-Power was created as a component of the National Social Investments Programmes (NSIP), "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".

It birthed on 8 June 2016 during the first term of the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration, under President Muhammadu Buhari.

Applicants are selected and placed in several places known as Place of Primary Assignment (PPA). Beneficiaries (Batches A and B) were then be paid specific stipends on monthly basis by the scheme.

Today, the N-Power scheme, like other NSIPs of the Nigerian government is domiciled in the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.
