Breaking: N-power Volunteers appeal for Permanancy or Substantial Exit Package

The Beneficiaries of N-power Program through the bodies of the National Forum of N-power Volunteers and the FCT Forum of N-power Volunteers have written to the Presidency,  the Senate, House of Reps, Ministers etc in an appeal for the reconsideration of the purported exit of the Batch A and B N-power Beneficiaries which commenced on the 30th of June, 2020.

The N-power Beneficiaries while expressing gratitude for the joy the Federal Government has brought to their tables, begged the Federal Government not to allow their joy wither in the horrow of economic hardship that has eaten deep into the societies as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The Beneficiaries noted that most of them are married with children hence, the sudden termination of their program would be a smear on their faces and detrimental to the survival of their families.

They had appealed to the Federal Government to consider a permanent Employement or a substantial exit package as most of the trained beneficiary who have served their Fathers land through the National Youth Service Corps, passed through the horrow of unemployment for years and then eased by the insufficient N30,000 stipend cannot go back to wallow in the saturated  labour market as it would be disastrous on their paths, the livelihood of their families and society at large.

The volunteers expressed dissatisfaction over their neglect in most of the recruitments conducted within the States while most of the teaching jobs in their respective places of assignment were piled on their desk where they handle more than 3 subjects.

Meanwhile, the Batch C N-power program has received more than 3million applications within one week of opening the application portal.

The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development announced the general applicants figure yesterday which included applicants with Primary School Leaving Certificates, SSCE and those without certificates but however did not state categorically, the exact number of applicants for the graduate category (N-Health and N-Teach) to buttress the spate of graduate unemployment in Nigeria.
