Question: Is there a plan for FG to give beneficiaries a permanent job rather than disengaging them to the street?
The honorable Minister of Finance responded as followed: On the loses of the job for Npower, yes there are Npower employee that has been exited but there is another batch that is going to come out.
She said the essence of the whole idea of Npower was that you were to be employed for two years, during the period you are developing skills and then you exit by taking a loan from GEEP to start your own business and that is the concept we are going back to.
These ones that have been exited have stayed for over three years and have the opportunity to apply for all of these loans that are structured and we have another batch that is coming.
