What Is N-Power All About?
A simple search on Google about it is bound to bring up many results. Sometimes these results can be conflicting.
This often leaves many people wondering about the true meaning of the term.
What is the programme really all about and how does it work? You asked.
Let me give you the best and simplest answer to that question.
It is an empowerment programme established by the Federal Government of Nigeria with the aim of curbing unemployment among its large population of youths.
The programme makes provision for both skilled and unskilled workers to be gainfully employed, doing what they love.
As clarified on their portal, the goals of the programme are:
1.) To drastically lower the rate of unemployment all over the country.
2.) To develop a system aimed at facilitating the transferability of skills. Mainly employability skills, entrepreneurial skills and technical skills, among many others.
3.) Providing solutions to the much ailing public service and diversification policy of the government.
How The Programme Works
To be a part of this programme in Nigeria and start receiving the benefits that comes with that (a job, monthly payment and other benefits), an unemployed citizen of the country is expected to visit the portal and register under any of its many categories and sub-categories.
Basically, the programme is divided into 3 major categories: N-Power Teacher Corps, N-Power Knowledge and N-Power Build.
From these three categories, we other sub-categories like:
- N-Power Teach
- N-Power Health
- N-Power Community Education
- N-Power Agro
- N-Power Creative
- N-Power Tech Hardware
- N-power Tech Software
- N-power Build
