The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Job Creation, Afolabi Imoukhuede, said no fewer than 290,000 applications hit the N-Power job portal on Friday, just three days after the portal was opened.

According to him, 200,000 graduates are already participating in the scheme while the next batch of 300,000 will be engaged from the new applicants. He expressed displeasure with the wave of wrong data fed into the portal by graduate applicants and said such problems were discouraging.

He said “If we do validation of data and any applicant fails at the point of recruitment he or she has lost the chance,” Mr. Imoukhuede told the volunteers that while the scheme was making efforts to assist them to validate their entries it would not do same for the next batch of recruits.

He advised the youth to take the opportunity seriously as the federal government was spending N6 billion on stipends to current beneficiaries every month and the amount is not a child’s play.

The presidential aide announced that deployment of the non-graduate applicants successful from the screening of applications received in 2016 would be done in batches from July/August 2017.
