A civil rights activist, Mustapha Kabir Soron Dinki has reminded the Nigerian government of the promised transition for exited N-Power beneficiaries, saying it is essential "for the children of the poor to continue earning a living", AllNews reports.
In a post he shared to The Youths-4-Change Network's known Facebook page on Wednesday, Dinki, a foremost youth leader in Kano State reiterated that "it is never easy to survive joblessly in the third world country like Nigeria."
"The entire life is about problems and solutions. However, our ability to propose solutions to our problems is what differentiates us from brutal animals, Dinki wrote.
"Therefore, we try in our own ways to draw Government's attention towards the promised transition plan for the children of poor to continue earning a living.
"As I often say, it's never easy to survive joblessly in the 3rd world country like Nigeria."
"The N-Power beneficiaries of the country were receiving stipends for selling their service to Government.
"Now the business has stopped in a dire and volatile condition caused by coronavirus pandemic.
"This is a reality and experimental, but you won't understand it until it happens to you.
"It's not easy to graduate from a typical Nigerian university and stay jobless for years while you're 30 or 35 by age.
"For that, we expect Federal Government to do the needful. God bless Nigeria.
"May we see the best."
N-Power is the Federal Government of Nigeria's unemployment easing initiatives which it prides as one of the largest post-tertiary job schemes in Africa.
Roughly 500, 000 graduate beneficiaries who earned a monthly stipend of N30, 000 were exited in July 2020.
As at the time of publishing this report, the Ministry supervising the famed scheme, Humanitarian Affairs, has announced nothing concrete as regards the transition plan for these exited Nigerian youths.
