FG's Social Investment Jobs Portal Records 400,000 Registrations In 36 Hours by presidency: 4:31pm On Jun 13, 2016
The newly launched Jobs portal of the Federal Government "N-Power.gov.ng", has recorded over 400,000 successful registrations since it opened for submissions at on Sunday, June 12, 2016, according to the Job Creation Unit in the Presidency.

“We have been very impressed by the enthusiastic response to the call for applications. As at noon on Monday June 13, only 36 hours after the launch of the portal, 403, 528 applicants had successfully registered on the site and were in the middle of completing the application process,” said Mr. Afolabi Imoukhede, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Job Creation.

“We are also very pleased that the registrations have been taking place without any hitches or system failures, considering the volume of response.”

All together the website has received over 35 million hits since Saturday midnight.

The Jobs Scheme, known as ‘N-Power’, is one of the five initiatives of the Social Investment Programmes of the Federal Government of Nigeria, described by President Mohammdu Buhari in his Democracy Day Speech as “by far the most ambitious social protection programme in our history.” A total sum of N500B has been provided for the programme in the 2016 Budget, an unprecedented development in Nigeria's budget history.

N-Power is designed to help young Nigerians acquire and develop life-long skills to become solution providers in their communities and to become players in the domestic and global markets.

It will provide employment opportunities for 500,000 graduates as teachers, agriculture extension advisers, healthcare assistants, and civic and adult education instructors in communities across Nigeria.

There will also be a pool of 100,000 software developers, hardware service professionals, animators, graphic artists, building services professionals, artisans and others.

Applications for the Scheme commenced on Sunday June 12 on the portal: www.npower.gov.ng, and will open until July 25, 2016, after which screening and shortlisting will be carried out.

The Buhari presidency assures all Nigerians that this application process would not only be structurally robust, transparent and fair, the selection process that will follow would also be based on objective criteria that has nothing to do with party affiliations.

Unemployed Nigerians both graduate and non-graduates would be drawn from across the country on state by state basis in the final analysis.

Mrs Maryam Uwais, Special Adviser to the President on Social Investments, said: "We are committed to ensuring transparency, equity, fairness and balance in the selection process, always bearing in mind our sundry nuances and contexts, to achieve efficient and optimal results in our NPower Programme."

400K applications in just 36 hours!!

We have a monumental problem in this Nation. For me 23K jobs wouldn't solve it

We need to re- Train graduates for entrepreneurship, IT, constructions in Mass housing scheme, Transportation, small scale manufacturing etc

By the way how true is this:

I however do have the following reservations:
Why are we requested to put in our BVN? The website isn't hosted at 'https' a more secure way of transmitting information on the internet. What is the guarantee that the information submitted which contains our BVN wouldn't get intercepted on transit?

Please will appreciate a valid response form the media team.

Thanks
