Finally, the list of all the selected applicants for the N-power job scheme slated to employ about 200,000 Nigerian graduates is out. The programme which kicked off in June aimed at employing the youths who are graduates has been dubbed by many as a successful scheme.
In a statement signed by Laolu Akande, the Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government said that the 500,000 Teacher Corps, nicknamed N-Power Teach on the portal, is one of the three direct job creation and training schemes Nigerians can start applying for from Sunday, June 12.
It explained: “All together, the N-Power will engage and train 500,000 young unemployed graduates.
“The 500,000 graduates, under the N-Power Corps programme, will be trained in skills that will enable them to exit after two years to economically-viable jobs and business opportunities.”
“Participants will be provided teaching, instructional and advisory solutions in four main focus areas, and would be paid a monthly stipend of N30,000 during the programme.”
