N-Power: 290,000 graduates registered in just three days

As a reflection of the state of economic quagmire in the country, no fewer than 290,000 graduates have successfully submitted their applications on the N-Power portal three days after it was opened.

This was disclosed yesterday by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Job Creation, Afolabi Imoukhuede, who gave the information during an interactive session with the first batch of the scheme’s beneficiaries in Edo at the Urhokpota Hall, Benin City.

  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.

“”The recruitment portal opened on Wednesday and 290,000 applications have entered as at this morning.

“”The next recruitment will be very competitive.

  “”If we do validation of data and any applicant fails at the point of recruitment he or she has lost the chance,’’ he said.

He expressed displeasure with the wave of wrong data fed into the portal by graduate applicants and said such problems were discouraging.

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.

  “”The Federal Government is spending N6billion on stipends to current beneficiaries every month and the amount is not a child’s play.

“”It is a lifeline to lift you out of unemployment and out of poverty.

“”This is a serious business to reduce unemployment and you have to maximize this chance,’’ he advised the youth.

The SSA advised applicants to file their applications by themselves and ensure that the information asked for in the application is correct and verifiable.

He acknowledged the challenges encountered by volunteers in the scheme which were largely caused by them and called on the new applicants to ensure that they did not make same mistakes.

Imoukhuede also said that many of the applicants residing in the rural areas stood better chance of being recruited as emphasis would be on residence of the applicants to curb rural-urban migration.

“”We do not encourage state re-deployment because the scheme is unlike the National Youth Service Corps.

“”Anyone who is not ready to do volunteer job in his state of domicile should not bother to apply,’’ he added.

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.

  1. I was just searching for this information for a while. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative web sites in top of the list. Usually the top websites are full of garbage.

  2. I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post’s to be exactly I’m
    looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content in your case?
    I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on many of the subjects you
    write about here. Again, awesome web site!

  3. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be really something which
    I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated
    and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get
    the hang of it!

  4. What’s Taking place i am new to this, I stumbled upon this I’ve found It positively helpful
    and it has helped me out loads. I hope to contribute & aid

  5. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  6. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to
    ask!

  7. Hey there! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog like yours take a lot of work?

    I am completely new to blogging however I do write in my journal on a daily basis.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
    Thankyou!

  9. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you
    would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your
    new updates.

    wondering your situation; we have created some nice methods and
    we are looking to swap solutions with other folks, be sure to shoot me an e-mail if interested.
