#Empowerment: N-Power To Begin Enrollment For Third Batch On June 26

(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Registration of the third batch of beneficiaries of the N-Power scheme will commence from June 26, 2020, according to the federal government.

Consequent to deliberations and assessment of tenders for the reform of the program, a statement from the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development on Saturday disclosed that the registration of the beneficiaries of the ‘Batch C’ will give more Nigerian youths access to the N-Power program, which is designed to encourage entrepreneurship, in line with the government’s mandate of lifting citizens out of poverty through capacity building, investment, and direct support.

The N-Power program, which was instituted by President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in 2016, under the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP), has registered approximately 500,000 beneficiaries so far with 200,000 from ‘Batch A’ which commenced in September 2016 and 300,000 from ‘Batch B’, which took off in August 2018.
