N-power Transition: Enugu N-power Beneficiaries turn-up commendable


Following the data collection for the transition of the exited Batch A and B N-power Beneficiaries into the various options explored by the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, a report from the Enugu State N-SIP Office indicates that a large number of the beneficiaries welcomed and indicated interest for the transition program.

Recall that the Enugu State National Social Investment Program  Focal Person, Dr Innocent Ogbonna, in exercise of benevolent spiritedness and in a bid to carry the N-power beneficiaries in the State along, had on 7th September, 2020 called on the Beneficiaries to resubmit their details, in declaration of interest for the Transition Program.

"TO ALL BATCHES A & B N-POWER VOLUNTEERS IN ENUGU STATE: Refer to my earlier message tagged: “Second Phase of Data Collection Requested by the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development (FMHADMSD) for N-Power Categories A and B”......Read more here


The call was neccesitated by the low turn out of the previous data collection which many N-power Volunteers in the State claimed unaware of the information widely disseminated then.

The recent data collation which officially ended on 10th September, 2020 was termed a success as many N-power Beneficiaries in the State, in passionate display of interest for the Transition opportunities, submitted their details within the stipulated deadline.

The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, having geared towards the transitioning  of  the exited N-power beneficiaries across the Federation into the Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), Federal Government Entrepreneurial Schemes as well as Private Sector liaise, had seeked the declaration of interests from each N-power Beneficiary, by selecting 'one' of the available options of either Public Sector, Private Sector or Loan offer.


This is in furtherance to the efforts of the Humanitarian Ministry in ensuring that the trained N-power beneficiaries do not head back to the streets following their disengagement from the N-power program and for the actualization of the President Mohammadu Buhari's passion of lifting 100 Million Nigerians out from poverty.

The Minister for Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouk, had on 27th August, 2020, in a press statement signed by her Special Assistant on Media, Nneka Ikem Anibueze, encouraged the exited N-power Beneficiaries to exercise patience and await the results of the Ministry's efforts in transitioning them into the options being explored while mandating the N-SIP Focal Persons across the 36 States plus FCT to collate details of the beneficiaries  who are interested in participating in the Transtion Program in their various States.

"..the exited beneficiaries are advised to exercise more patience and await the result of the efforts being made by the Honorable Minister who is currently engaging various MDAs including the CBN and the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to ensure that the eligible exited beneficiaries are transited to government progammes or even employment where available."

"In this regard, “we have directed Focal Persons of NSIPs in all the states to submit an updated list and details of the exited N-Power beneficiaries that are interested in participating in the transition plans of the ministry” the Honourable Minister stated."


In a recent development, the Kwara State Focal Person has decried the lukewarm attitudes of the beneficiaries in the State in participating in government's efforts in ensuring that the exited N-power Beneficiaries in the State do not go back to the street. Read more here.

Also, the Benue State N-SIP Office has called for the re-submission of details by the N-power Beneficiaries in the State in furtherance to the on going Transtion processes across the Federation.
