The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari says that N-Power beneficiaries who have completed the two-year job program will now be able to access permanent employment opportunities or business prospects.
This is part of the newly activated exit strategy for N-power, reports NAN.
The initiative relates to lots A and B beneficiaries of the N-Power Program.
The update was given on Wednesday by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq.
She spoke at the Home Grown School Feeding Programme’s 4th annual review (NHGSFP).
Under the plan, the Shared Agent Network Expansion Facility will engage 200,000 beneficiaries as financial services operators (SANEF).
The scheme is operated by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
“Plans have been concluded for the transition of the N-power Batch A and B through the creation of the NEXIT portal, which would allow those who choose to sign up to access other government empowerment opportunities.”

“A beneficiary management system for the NSIPs is expected to be deployed in 2021. It would have the capacity to manage payments, address grievances and improve dissemination of information”, Sadiya said.
The government also said another 30,000 beneficiaries have been engaged as geospatial experts and enumerators in the Economic Sustainability Plan’s Mass Agric programme.
Others will have the option of benefiting from the Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme (GEEP) micro-enterprise loans.
