N-Power: Disengaging Beneficiaries Will Render Programme Useless - Reps

The 36-state representatives of N-Power volunteers plus the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) says disengaging Batch A and B beneficiaries will 'defeat the purpose' of the famed scheme, AllNews reports.

The Representatives Forum had on Monday in Ilorin, Kwara State, held a national media conference concerning the scheme's transition plan, payment of backlogs, devices collection for Batch B and some of Batch A.

In a Press Release signed by Kabiru Aliyu Pelemi, the National President of the congress, which was sighted by AllNews after the national media conference, the Federal Government is urged "to quickly implement the transition program for the exited N-Power Volunteers latest by October 1st, 2020 to reduce the suffering already meted out".

"The disengagement of N-Power beneficiaries without adequate transitioning has skyrocketed the unemployment rate within the most productive age bracket. This will definitely put the crime rate on the rise, thereby increasing the level of insecurity across the country," the release read in part.

"It will also continue to affect the economy as most of the disengaged volunteers are in their productive age. It will render the program useless as its original motive would have been defeated.

"It will also increase the level of distrust the youth already perceived of the government."

According to the Federal Government of Nigeria, the N-Power scheme is one of the largest post-tertiary institution schemes in Africa.
