Why FG Can’t Provide Permanent Job To Exited Npower Beneficiaries
According to FG The cry for permanency of batches A&B has been so loud, but why they can’t provide a permanent job offer to the beneficiaries rather than the transitioned offer is because of the following:
Right from the prograrmme design and application process, the duration of the programme is made known to interested persons. Government is to create an enabling environment for youth to build capacity and gain experience through Social Protection programmes like the N-power and not employing permanently over 500,000 in its payroll.
This intervention has been considered as the single largest post-tertiary education recruitment in Africa. In reducing the unemployment rate, different tracks have been taken to ensure volunteers and trainees utilize those opportunities and become productive and self-reliant through on-the-job and hands-on experience.
FG stated that the transition plans for the 2 batches of N-Power beneficiaries are that the FMHADMSD is currently collaborating with the Central Bank of Nigeria in offering possible economic placements and other opportunities to the exited volunteers that meet up with CBNs selection criteria.
