Congratulations: Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs reveals the way forward for N-power and N-SIP

The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development in an inter-ministerial meeting, Tuesday, revealed the unprecedented plans the Federal Government has made for the beneficiaries of the N-power program and the National Social Investment Program.

The beneficiaries of the program particularly the N-power program have been curious to know their fate after the Ministry declared that it would decide the way forward for the program after the May Stipends.

Going by the press release by the Ministry’s Deputy Director of Information, Mrs Rhoda Ishaku Iliya, the Ministry in the inter-ministerial meeting agreed on restructuring, repositioning the N-SIP and further enhancement of the N-power program through the establishment of Integrated National Social Investment Program (I-NSIP), while leveraging on digital training as a key skill that would enhance the performance of youths in a global economy so as to create multidimensional wealth.
As we expand the programs to reach more Nigerians, we have undertaken a review and re-appraisal of the programme in order to strengthen the program design and streamline for efficiency. 
FMHDSD has designed the Integrated National Social Investment Programme (I-NSIP) to reposition N-SIP to cater to vulnerable groups by providing them access to shock responsive interventions, life skills & mentorship in order to systematically lift people out of poverty. 
Secondly, the I-NSIP’s life skills component would focus on providing skills and opportunity for vulnerable groups in key priority economic sectors which would translate to creating multidimensional wealth. 
Thirdly,FMHDSD is considering reducing the tenure so that more beneficiaries are enrolled, trained and exited quickly. 
Lastly, FMHDSD wishes to identify areas of inter-ministerial collaboration so that we have more options open to our beneficiaries.
On the further enhancement of the N-power Program, the graduate category of the National Social Investment Program consisting of N-Teach, N-Health and N-Agro, the Ministry concluded as follows:
Over the past 4 years, N-Teach contributed to providing teachers at the State level, this will be further enhanced given the role of education in nation-building. 
Through N-Health, I-NSIP can provide opportunities for skilled support staff as seen during the Covid-19 pandemic, which we would like to scale. 
Agriculture remains the sector with the biggest potential in our country, I-NSIP will train young men and women to contribute to the entire value chain so that it becomes more profitable.

The Ministry furthered that it would in no distance time open the portal for the engagement of more  Nigerian youths into the National Social Investment Program as part of the effort of the Federal Government in lifting 1million Nigerian youths out of poverty.

Mrs Iliya disclosed that the Ministry decided on enrolling and empowering more women so that they can earn income and be more self-sufficient as the National Social Investment Program takes a more solid shape for the benefit of many Nigerian youths.
