I trust all is well with you and your family. Greetings to you from Mr President and his Vice Prof Yemi Osinbajo. As you know they are your primary sponsors and investors. l also want to wish you a happy valentine season. Again we are in the election season, so let me apologise for the abrupt postponement of the election.
The essence of this session is to catch base with us and also use this platform to update us. Remember as long as you have been paid you have access to the learning materials in your portal. So all these learning materials are there for you even if you have no device at the moment.
You have to work, you have to work in Npower and in your community. N-power is a full time volunteer programme, which you have to work full time and where you fail to work you will be suspended. The reason I am bringing this up is because the rate of suspension is growing, not only for batch one but batch two. l want to appeal that the work component of npower is very critical if you don't go to work how do you improve your learning‚ how do you get a referral for other job opportunities.
