The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development has announced the commencement of enrolment for a new batch of N-Power beneficiaries effective today, June 26.
A statement from the Ministry says the commencement of the Batch C enrolment is sequel to far reaching consultations and a review of the submissions on the reform and realignment of the programme for greater efficiency.
“Batch C is also being enrolled to provide opportunities for more Nigerian youths to access the programme, in furtherance of the President’s vision of lifting 100 million Nigerians out of poverty by creating opportunities that will enhance the productivity of the Nigerian youths for entrepreneurship.”
The Ministry in a statement says applications will be conducted using a hybrid system of enrolment to ensure that all Nigerians are given an opportunity to participate.
The online portal would be open to receive applications from 11:45 pm today, June 26, 2020, and will provide a level playing field for all applicants.
As part of the Ministry’s reforms to make the programme more efficient, all applicants must supply their Bank Verification Number (BVN) in their application process.
N-Power made the disclosure via a tweet on its official Twitter handle.
