Just as it promised in a statement on Sunday, the Federal Government has now released the names of the beneficiaries for the first batch of one of its social investment programs – the N-power programme.
A total of 200,000 candidates were selected for the take-off stage set to kick-off Dec 1st, according to a statement by Laolu Akande, the spokesman to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
The names of successful applicants has now been published on the N-Power portal and candidates who submitted their CV for the programme can check their status using the state they registered with or the phone number they submitted on the N-Power website.
The N-Power Volunteer Corps is an attempt by the government to invest in the human capital development of Nigerian citizens, particularly the youths and equip them with life-long tools.
The program also seeks to enhance public services that are short of man-power in the area of basic education and primary healthcare. Also in the agric sector, it is aimed at achieving self-sufficiency by giving farmers relevant advisory services.
