Honorable Minister of humanitarian affairs Sadiya Umar Farouq had an interview yesterday with DW Hausa live on Facebook
According to her, they are committed and are working hard to make the Npower programme strong. President Muhammad Buhari is seeing that there is a need to help unemployed graduates with opportunities in all sectors of the economy like farming, health Teaching, creative industry and other sectors.
She said batch A that was to be exited in June has been exited and we will see how we will exist batch B this July. Our plan is to make sure that we see beneficiaries become self-reliant and so far 109,823 N-Power volunteers have established their own business.
The Minister also talked about the displaced person, how they are making sure to see that they get back to their homes.
Regarding stipends payment, she said some N-Power volunteers have collected their stipend and for those who are yet to receive their stipend they definitely receive theirs this week. She also addressed the issue of backlogs to some volunteers stating that those with two to three months backlogs are those who absconded from their Place of Primary Assignment deliberately and were reported and are the victim of non-payment of stipend. Those who have been reported from their Place of Primary Assignment are those who are existed, if you don't have an issue in your PPA you will be paid.
Everything concerning stipend have been perfected and subsequently refer to the ministry of finance for payment and volunteers will soon receive their stipend this week.
She talks about N-Power programme that those without education or with primary school or secondary certificate can apply for N-Power build, N-Power Agro, and N-Power Tech. N-Power teach and N-Power health is for graduates.
Batch C portal will eventually close apparently next week for further authentication, and fish out those that are working and still applied and the existing beneficiaries that 'reapplied because of selfish interest.
The portal has open to take new people. There is no religion in the recruitment process, if you are qualified you will be selected
