The Federal Government, through the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development has launched an online portal for exited N-Power beneficiaries through which they can apply for various CBN empowerment programs.
The platform is aimed to enable exited N-Power beneficiaries to apply for Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) empowerment options.
The portal which was created in partnership with CBN will enable exited Npower beneficiaries to apply for the various economic, empowerment and entrepreneurship options provided by CBN.
According to a statement signed by the Permanent Secretary of the Humanitarian Affairs Ministry, Bashir Nura Alkali, interested exited Npower beneficiaries are to visit the portal and provide the required additional information for possible placements into the various CBN intervention options.
Alkali explained that the NEXIT PORTAL will determine the suitability of the beneficiaries for the CBN affiliated program.
The statement reads;
“The NEXIT portal is to determine the suitability of the beneficiaries for the CBN affiliated programs and is dependent on meeting the criteria and conditions set by the CBN for the said programs”.
Meanwhile, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Umar Farouq, expressed her appreciation to the CBN Governor Mr Godwin Emefiele for his support, adding that the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs remained committed to the vision of Mr President to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in the next 10 years.
