FG to start paying N30,000 monthly stipends to N-power beneficiaries

 The Federal Government has started the payment of N30,000 monthly stipends for beneficiaries of N-power scheme, the job creation programme of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
States that are yet to conclude the physical verification process are being urged to do so as that would enable the N-Power beneficiaries in those states to draw from its benefits and empowerment offers.

The N-Power programme is designed to engage the massive numbers of unemployed Nigerian graduates from tertiary institutions across the country.

A total of 150,000 out the 200,000 selected in the first phase of the scheme would be deployed as support teachers to help address shortage of teachers in schools at the basic or secondary levels.

Another 30,000 graduates would work as extension workers in various communities which will expectedly aid the government's diversification agenda.
