N-Power portal opens, over 1 million Nigerians apply in 48 hours
Over 1 million applications have been received from across the country in less than 48 hours that the N-Power (Batch C) portal was opened, according to the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development.
This was contained in a statement signed on Sunday by the ministry’s Deputy Director, Information, Rhoda Iliya. The enrolment exercise for the new N-Power beneficiaries commenced on June 26.
Iliya said youths with no formal education could send in applications for a new aspect of the programme with a focus on agriculture.
“The Ministry wishes to reiterate that all young Nigerians between the ages of 18-35 with or without formal education can apply for a slot in the new program which would be very focused on agriculture”, the statement says.
The N-Power Programme was inaugurated by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), in 2016 under the National Social Investment Programme.
The aim of the programme was to lift citizens out of poverty through capacity building, investment and direct support.
