N-Power Batch C 2020: 4 Months After Application Closed, Nigerian Youths Still In The Dark About Next Step

N-Power Batch C 2020: 4 Months After Application Closed, Nig

Candidates of the N-Power Batch C 2020 Recruitment are curious to know the next step of the onboarding process of the new set of beneficiaries, AllNews reports.

Recall AllNews had reported in August that Sadiya Farouq, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development of Nigeria, restated that her ministry received over 5 million applications in well over one month.

1, 000, 000 successful enrollees will be selected from the final application pool, AllNews understands.

"The N-Power Batch C application portal closed on Sunday, August 9, 2020, after receiving over 5m applications. As we embark on the review process, efforts are in high gear to clear the stipends for Batch A and B before onboarding the new set of beneficiaries," Farouq, had said in a tweet on her verified handle.

AllNews also reported that Farouq in August stated at the grand finale of events in commemoration of her ministry’s first year anniversary, in Abuja, the Nigerian capital city, that the ministry of Humanitarian Affairs 'will ensure due diligence will be applied to ensure that only duly qualified applicants are enrolled for N-Power Batch C during the selection stage'.

“We have successfully exited the 500,000 Batch A and B beneficiaries and closed registration for Batch C with a total of 5,042,001 registrations received.

“As we move to the selection stage, the Ministry will ensure due diligence will be applied to ensure that only duly qualified applicants are enrolled,” Farouq had said.

With no further information provided on Batch C Selection Stage, youths of a country with a 27.1% unemployment rate are persistently nervy.

While the Federal Ministry Of Youth And Sports Development hinted that the enrollment of the Batch C N-Power beneficiaries will transpire in November 2020, this online news medium can authoritatively report that it didn't happen. This is December.

N-Power: See some recent reactions below:

Akinpelu Kunle, a 27-year-old unemployed Nigerian youth told AllNews on Tuesday that "he is tired" of waiting.

Ajala Seun, based on Kwara State, North-Central Nigeria, wonders why it is taking the government so long to announce something concrete as regards the next selection stage of Batch C N-Power beneficiaries.

For Iheanacho Augustine, the Nigerian government is "unserious" and "not ready". Augustine told AllNews in a chat that he believes the government's planning concerning Batch C N-Power recruitment is "defective".
