AllNews had earlier reported on Wednesday that Ikem stated that 126, 937 exited beneficiaries from Batches A and B have so far submitted their records for the CBN Empowerment program.
The NEXIT portal was developed "to enable exited N-Power beneficiaries to log on and apply for the various CBN economic empowerment and entrepreneurship options such as the AGSMEIS loan and the Anchor Borrowers Program (ABP)," Minister Farouq had said sometime last year.
Interested N-Power exited beneficiaries are encouraged to log on to the CBN portal for more information. The N-Power NEXIT website portal is http://nexit-fmhds.cbn.gov.ng.”
It was launched in November, 2020.
