FINALLY FG BEGINS NPOWER BATCH A EXIT PROCESS

January 08, 2020
After three years of BATCH A recruitment into the program, the federal government is set to exit batch A  beneficiaries which consist 200,000 from the programme. The disengagement will take place between January and February this year, 2020.



As we learnt from all stakeholders involved (National Social Investment Office (NSIO) and the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, operators of the scheme) confirmed this in Abuja, yesterday 8th of January, 2020.

This was due to the fact that they were not included in the 2020 national budget.
The youth empowerment programme was created by the federal government with a focus on large-scale skill development for employment and social development.

A top official of NSIO told LEADERSHIP that the time had come for the affected 200,000 beneficiaries to be exited while the batch B should continue till their time lapse.

The reasons as gathered by our team was that the structure of the program is to exit them in other to enroll new beneficiaries.

Although, there is exit plan for the exiting beneficiaries which is awaiting the approval of the minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed.

“The fact is that the Government still don't have allocation for them in this year  budget and because of that, they may not be able to pay them. They will exit them this January or so,” the source said.

The federal government in it exit package, is planning not to push them back to the street struggling to find means of surviving.

Part of the plan, according to Federal Government, is to allow the participants access to loan up to N100,000 to start SME businesses as well as meeting with the state governments that benefited from the N-Power Agro, N-Power Health, N-Power Teach, N-Power Community Education, and N-Power Health workers to absorb or engage those that had been productive.

Please continue going to your PLACE OF PRIMARY ASSIGNMENT until the NPOWER officially confirm this on it social media.
