This was stated by the Government while enumerating programs that were designed by the Federal Government to empower the youths of the country since the inception of the present administration in 2015, a release that is purportedly connected to the recent protests of the youths #EndSARS, #EndPoliceBrutality and now extended to taunting the APC adminstration.

Among the popular N-power Program which had earlier engaged 500,000 youths (Batch A$B) in the Education, Health and Agricultural Sectors of the Nigerian Economy but presently disengaged to pave way for the 400,000 new batch C of the program, are lists of 24 other programs tailored by the present administration to empower the youths of Nigeria as follows:

The release which has attracted reactions from Nigerians especially the youths, is an attempt to showcase the Federal Government's plans and achievements for the youths but the youths had wondered why only empowerment programs and not permanent employment programs.

Taking reference from the recent disengagenent of the 500,000 N-power Beneficiaries amidst COVID-19 Pandemic with owed backlog Stipends, no immediate exit plan for a life after the program, resulting in several Protests across the country especially the Federal Capital Territory, the Nigerian youths through comments on the social media have expressed deep dissatisfaction noting that the empowerment programs were only designed for the children of the poor or non-political classes while juicy appointments into the NNPC, DSS, Immigration, Custom Services, Federal Government Ministries and other Departments and Agencies were meant for the children of the rich who can afford to lobby their ways or the favoured high political classes.

  1. The important question is can 30,000 - 40,000 stipend of Npower afford and how much can the youth save to help his life after the programme considering the high cost of living.?
    Can't the youth have meaningful jobs in Nigeria?

    Why is it all about empowerment?

    How many Nigerian youth are able to get jobs in parastatals like custom,navy,immigration,civil defence,road safety,NNPC,NDDC,DPR,EFCC,ICPC,NDLEA,NAFDAC ans even civil service without knowing somebody at the apex, without paying bribe.

    It seems empowerment is for the poor while the children of the politicians do real job. The future of Nigerian youth is something else. We meed transformation not the APC change propaganda. We arr fed up.
