Federal Government says N-Power beneficiaries, who have concluded the two-year job programme, will now be able to access permanent job opportunities or business prospects.

This is part of the newly-activated N-power exit strategy.

Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, who stated this said, the initiative was for batches A and B of the programme

Hajia Sadiya Farouq spoke at the 4th annual review of the Home Grown School Feeding Programme (NHGSFP).

She explained that under the plan, 200,000 beneficiaries would be engaged as financial services operators under the Shared Agent Network Expansion Facility (SANEF).

The Minister said the scheme was operated by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

“Plans have been concluded for the transition of the N-power Batch A and B through the creation of the NEXIT portal, which would allow those who choose to sign up to access other government empowerment opportunities.”

She said another 30,000 beneficiaries had been engaged as geospatial experts and enumerators in the Economic Sustainability Plan’s Mass Agric programme.

“Others will have the option of benefiting from the Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme (GEEP) micro-enterprise loans”
