This was made known on Friday by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq.

She said that the current Batch A and B N-Power beneficiaries will exit the scheme on June 30 and July 31 respectively.

The programme has enrolled 500,000 beneficiaries so far, 200,000 from Batch A which started in September 2016 and 300,000 from Batch B which started in August 2018.

According to the federal government, the beneficiaries were supposed to spend 24 months on the programme but Batch A beneficiaries have spent over 40 months.

The Minister in her statement, said that the federal government has commenced the transitioning of the Batch A and B beneficiaries into government entrepreneurship schemes.

She said: “We have commenced the transitioning of beneficiaries from Batches A & B into government entrepreneurship schemes and engaging private sector bodies to absorb some of the beneficiaries after the completion of psychometric assessment to determine competency and placement into various opportunities.

“In view of these, the Ministry has announced that Batch A will exit June 30, 2020 and Batch B will exit the programme on July 31, 2020.

“The online portal would be open to receive applications from noon on June 26, 2020 and will provide a level playing field for all applicants.

“As part of the Ministry’s reforms to make the programme more efficient, all applicants must supply their Bank Verification Number (BVN) in their application to ensure a streamlined and transparent selection process.

The ministry further explained that once applications are submitted, it will review submissions and publish a list of successful applicants.

It also stated that comprehensive details for the new batch will be announced in the coming weeks.

It however noted that past beneficiaries will not be eligible to participate in the application process.

The N-Power Programme was inaugurated by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2016 under the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP) with the mandate of lifting citizens out of poverty through capacity building, investment, and direct support.
