The loan is call GEEP loan. According to the Npower officials, the GEEP loan is to allow the disengaged beneficiaries start up something to make a living.
This article seek to maintain that exiting beneficiaries of Npower doesn't really need the GEEP loan, what they deserve to be given is permanent job.
It is important to remind the federal government to know that GEEP Loan cannot solve the deplorable state of unemployment, insecurities matters and poor outplaying of Education in the country. The batch A and B Beneficiaries of Npower across the Country needs permanent job not the GEEP Loan.
