Decades of neglect on the right drivers of job creation has left a huge number of our youths without the skill, job, or economic means to survive. President Muhammadu Buhari’s led government is making deliberate efforts to address this vacuum through various social intervention programmes.
The COVID-19 pandemic has unravelled a number of challenges but it’s our duty as Government to intervene and support young people who are unable to find jobs and accelerate efforts to provide an enabling environment for businesses to create sustainable jobs.
Everyone deserves an opportunity to rise no matter their circumstance, educational background or belief.
Since inception, N-Power has trained over 500,000 beneficiaries in various vocational areas – farming, agro-processing, financial literacy, communication, digital skills amongst a host of others.
About 109,823 beneficiaries have gone on to set up businesses within their communities as a result of their training and time in the N-Power Programme. We are proud of the results so far and look forward to impacting even more Nigerians as we commence efforts to register a new batch of beneficiaries.
My team and I at the Ministry are committed to this programme and all efforts geared towards supporting the vulnerable. We are stronger together and we will make it through these trying times.
