The man who leads the Job Creation component, N-Power of the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP), Afolabi Imoukhuede has been slammed by some Nigerian youths for a statement credited to him that giving permanent employment to 500, 000 volunteers under the scheme is "impracticable", AllNews reports.

AllNews had earlier reported that the Presidential aide will be relating to volunteers of the famed scheme.

Beneficiaries sent in their questions as Imoukhuede made his first appearance on Facebook Live Chat since the programme was transferred to the newly-created Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development in October 2019.

Matters such as prompt stipend payment and the fate of the 2016 beneficiaries were dialogued.

The Edo-born technocrat who had prior to the 2019 general elections pleaded with beneficiaries to once more vote his principal, President Muhammadu Buhari to enhance their continuity in the programme, was quoted to have said on Wednesday that the N-Power heads are in talks with state governments for a robust exit package for beneficiaries.

However, All News observed that most beneficiaries desire permanency - as against imminent exit. Thus, some of them expressed their disappointment towards Imoukhuede.
