Breaking: N-power Batch A and B not eligible for next Application, both Batches to undergo Psychometric tests to determine Competence for engagement

The Deputy Director of Information, Federal  Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Mrs Rhoda Iliya Ishaku, has in a statement disclosed that the Bach A and B N-power beneficiaries who are to be exited into other engagements of the Government and private sectors, are not eligible to apply for the 2020 Npower Bactch C recruitment that will commence at the noon of 26th June, 2020.

As part of the Ministry’s reforms to make the programme more efficient, all applicants must supply their Bank Verification Number (BVN) in their application. This is to ensure a streamlined and transparent selection process. Once applications are submitted, the Ministry will review submissions and publish a list of successful applicants. Past beneficiaries are not eligible to participate in the application process.

Mrs Rhoda however disclosed that the Ministry has concluded plans for the engagement of the exited beneficiaries into the Government entrepreneurial schemes and Private sector bodies  upon scaling a psychometric test of competence.

We have commenced the transitioning of beneficiaries from Batches A & B into government entrepreneurship schemes and engaging private sector bodies to absorb some of the beneficiaries after the completion of psychometric assessment to determine competency and placement into various opportunities.’

The Deputy Director of Information noted that the Federal government is committed to the continuation and expansion and as such will then begin enrolment and onboarding of a new Batch of beneficiaries while emphasising that Skills acquisition for entrepreneurship and job creation are critical for an economy that will require a boost post-Covid-19 and we are gearing up proactively for the challenge.

She furthered that the Batch C Applications will be conducted using a hybrid system of enrolment to ensure that all Nigerians are given an opportunity to participate as the Ministry would consider more women participation and people with disabilities, being a ministry that caters more for the vulnerables.

Mrs Rhoda stated that the details of the 2020 Batch C N-power recruitment would be made public next week.

Meanwhile, some of the Batch A and B N-power beneficiaries consisting of 200,000 and 300,000 beneficiaries respectively have expressed sadness over the Federal Government’s decision to exit them into entrepreneurship as some of them prefer teaching and health jobs to entrepreneurial engagement while to some, the Federal Government’s decision is a welcome development.
