(OPINION) N-POWER: Why the N-POWER Program Must be Returned to the Office of Vice President Osibanjo

The N-POWER Scheme has within four years of its creation by the Present administration of President Buhari mitigated the rate of unemployment amongst the youths of the Nation.

About 500,000 youths have been engaged by the scheme in several of its programs like the N-BUILD, N-Creativity, etc.Source: Google

Upon creation of the scheme, it was handled by the office of the Vice President until early 2020 when it was transferred to the Humanitarian Affairs ministry headed by Honorable Sadiya Umar.

Here are reasons why I believe that the N-POWER Scheme should be returned to Vice President Osibanjo's office:

1. Transparent Selection Process: 

While the scheme was under the supervision of Vice President Osibanjo, the selection process for the batch A and B beneficiaries was free and fair to all.

2. Timely Payment of Beneficiaries Stipends:

Vice President Yemi Osibanjo ensured that the was prompt payment of Stipends to the beneficiaries as at when due.

3. Increase time of Engagement:

The scheme was supposed to last for only two years but Vice President Osibanjo ensured that the batch A beneficiaries enjoyed two extra years of Engagement.

But immediately the scheme was transferred to the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs led by Honorable Sadiya Umar, she immediately asked that the batch A and B beneficiaries be excited from the scheme.

This is which I believe that the scheme should be returned to the office of the Vice President.

What do you think about this?
