The batch C N-Power 2020 recruitment has further exposed the unemployed situation in Nigeria and that should send a signal to the Ministry of humanitarian affairs on disengagement of 500,000 beneficiaries into the street without proper exit transition to a sustainable venture.
The rate at which millions of Nigerians rush to apply for the just-opened 2020 Npower recruitment portal shows how anxious many people are in getting a means of livelihood. In just less than 48 hours of the Npower 2020 recruitment portal launch, more than 1 million unemploy Nigerians had applied for a 400,000 volunteers space in the Federal Government N-Power empowerment programme.
This should not be a happy situation but a call up call to the management of the Npower programme at this Covid-19 pandemic period to see that the NPower batch A and B are properly transited to a sustainable venture since the government plan at this time is to see that most Nigerian do not lose their jobs at this period.
The Ministry of humanitarian affairs which is in charge of managing NPower programme fixed 30th June for batch B exit and July 31st for batch B exit into the said government entrepreneurship programme.
