Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development says no fewer than five million candidates have applied for the N-Power programme.

The Minister, Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouq, made the disclosure in a statement on Tuesday by her Special Assistant on Strategic Communication, Mrs Halima Oyelade.

“A total of 5,042,001 Nigerian youths have applied as at the end of the registration.

She said that the registration, which commenced on June 26, was to end on July 26 but was extended by two weeks.

“Due diligence will be applied during the next stages of the selection to ensure that only duly qualified applicants are enrolled.

“The Ministry will ensure that the applicants as well as the general public, are fully informed on the progress of the scheme,” she said.

According to Farouq, the N-Power programme is aimed at providing the Nigerian youths with opportunities to gain skills for employability and entrepreneurship.

She further stressed that it would also go a long way in assisting the country towards the post COVID-19 economic recovery.

The minister added that women and persons with disability will be given priority during the selection.

“The Ministry remain committed to the vision of President Muhammadu Buhari to lift 100 million Nigerians out of Poverty in the next 10 years.

“However, the N-power Programme is one of the platforms that can assist in the realisation of that vision,” she said. (NAN)

Buhari is the most corrupt person in Nigeria yet he claim holy, look at the people he surrounds himself with. From Magu to Malami to Lawal the grass cutter and then we have the school feeding scheme, the NDDC scandal

Educate yourself. When a question about a certain topic pops up, google it. Watch movies and documentaries. When something sparks your interest, read about it. Read read read. Study, learn, stimulate your brain. Don’t just rely on the school system, educate that beautiful mind of yours.

Knowledge is power

That suppose to tell them their is great unemployment in the country that needs serious attention but this government is blind they can only be shocked with the numbers that applied without providing a solution
If they tackle unemployment the citizens will have something good to say about them but it is one-sided corruption fight they will be doing in which the money recovered will still be squandered

This is so sad. Just look at the numbers that registered and the number that will be employed. I know most people that have good paying job but still applied for this npower program why can't you just leave it for those necessary in need?
The mindset of all those people applying think this is a monthly free money scheme because you don't have to go to your PPA and you will not be held accountable. Just a few people actually partook in the last concluded npower batch A and B so when they are wailing about they exit program if u have a little conscience remaining you will be begging God for forgiveness for those children you where paid to teach and you didn't carry out your job for those in NTeach and other respective programs

Is this news?
Is she sure the applicants aren't up to 10 million?

Every year, we churn out millions of graduates from Federal and state owned Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of Education as well as Privately owned institutions with little or no plans to create jobs or enabling environment for them to thrive.

I wouldn't be surprised 20 million have applied
