The Federal Government of Nigeria has released a link for N-Power Batch C applicants to take their test and subsequently carry out the process.
At a press briefing on Thursday in Abuja on the Launch of the National Social Investment Management System, Sadiya Farouq, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development stated that the N-Power started as an intervention for job creation.
Recall AllNews had earlier reported that N-Power Batch C will officially be launched on Thursday.
According to Farouq, Batch C is a continuation of the ongoing strategy and an extension of the Muhammadu Buhari administration's commitment to job creation and youth development.
It is noteworthy that while Farouq addressed Batch C’s worries, she completely ignored over 14, 000 N-Power Batches A and B beneficiaries who are still in the dark regarding their five-month outstanding stipend arrears.
Based on the implementation of these National Social Investment Programmes (NSIPs) since 2016, Nigerian authorities say “the programmes are undergoing restructuring to maximise their impact and deliver more socioeconomic benefits to the poor and vulnerable in the society”.
The N-Power programme provides young Nigerians with job opportunities. It provided opportunities to over 500,000 Nigerians. In view of this, President Buhari approved the extension of the programme to 1 million new beneficiaries; 500, 000 per stream.
The N-Power programme will now be administered through the NASIMS which cuts across the whole value change of other programmes under the Ministry.
The programme is now positioned to be more strategic through the NASIMS.
Prospective beneficiaries will experience a verification process as well as transition and exit management plan through the NASIMS.
Those who applied for N-Power Batch C can now log into http://nasims.gov.ng to take their test and subsequently carry out the process.
[email protected] is the dedicated email address for complaints and enquiries.
The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs said it has taken stringent steps to ensure that the registration and verification as well as the onboarding process will be carried out online and on a centralised system.
