N-Power Story: The Stumble Of Once Mighty Empowerment Program

Once upon a point in time, Nigeria had an N-Power program. It was initiated to assist in ending youth unemployment and promote social progress. The program targeted university graduates and non-graduates aged between eighteen years and thirty-five years old providing them with a lifeline for two years of paid work based in their respective homes.
