The federal government says the first batch of the N-Power scheme should be ready to leve the scheme any time from now.
According to the minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, beneficiaries of the N-power welfare programme would be exited from the system before the end of 2020.
According to Faroq: “I don’t know why there is fear, we know that the government had this programme in place to support our teeming unemployed youths, especially the graduates and it is supposed to be a two years programme.
“We started with the first batch in 2016 and they were supposed to have been exited in 2018 and we want to believe that most of them that are wise must have saved really from the stipend that they have been paid every month.”

The Minister expressed shock over the sudden outcry over facing out news since the beneficiaries were all aware that their services would be terminated after two years.
Farouq explained that the Federal Government youth employment scheme was designed to run for two years, hence the first batch would be phased out as they are overdue.
