FG to re-open N-Power portal this month
|Mrs Zainab Ahmed|
Nigeria Communication Week reported that Ahmed stated that “For example, in N-Power Scheme that 200,000 beneficiaries have been employed, we are supposed to increase it to 500,000 beneficiaries in 2017.
“There is opportunity in the N-Power Programme for employment. There is opportunity in the GEEP for you to get finances to be able to start businesses. Please this is real, it is working, join the process and be a beneficiary.
“The deployment, release of funds didn’t start till October 2016 and it is so because we want to make sure that the programme is planned properly. We want to make sure that each beneficiary has bank account linked to BVN; we are targeting the right people, not just people nominated by big people.
“That took a lot of time but we thank God that the programme is going on well and it is now easier to upscale it .”
