N-Power Batch C

N-Power is a scheme set up by President Muhammadu Buhari in June 2016, "to address the issues of youth unemployment and help increase social development". The scheme was created as a component of National Social Investment Program (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".

Applicants are selected and placed in several places known as Place of Primary Assignment (PPA). These PPAs can be found by checking your N-Power Deployment Status. Applicants will then be paid specific stipends on monthly basis by the scheme.
