The Federal Government’s Stand
From a recent press release which featured the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Mr. Umah Farouq, he made it clear that the federal government is making plans to take in all the Npower exited candidates who are qualified and fix them up in other federal jobs
In his exact words, he said;
“We have directed Focal Persons of National Social Investment Programmes in the states to submit an updated list of the exited N-Power beneficiaries that are interested in participating in the transition plans of the ministry.
Meanwhile, approval has been given for the payment of the outstanding stipends for the exited N-Power Batches A and B beneficiaries.
The approval for payments for up to the month of June, 2023 for the two Batches has already been forwarded to the office of the Accountant General of the Federation (AGF) for final checks and payments”

The permanency bill will likely be passed into effect soon, but we are not sure if it will affect the Batch A and B recruits because time is already up, and they have exited the program already.
What we are sure of is that the Federal Government is making provision for them to be employed in good agencies with great working conditions.
This means that all the exited n-power workers will have permanent jobs or will receive grants or support to start a business of their own, depending on the category of the program you served in.
