N-Power Application Portal 2017.
The Federal Government will reopen its National Youth Empowerment Scheme, ‘N-Power’ Application portal on May 29, 2017, Minister of Labour and Employment Dr. Chris Ngige has revealed.
The Application Portal for N-Power Jobs remains portal.npower.gov.ng.
The Minister who made the declaration at press conference on the issue of minimum wage for Nigeria Labour Congress stressed that the N-Power Program have gulped billions of Naira since it started remunerating in December 2016.
Currently, the N-Power scheme, one of the four cardinal programmes of Social Investment Programme, SIP, is engaging 200,000 Nigerian youths in the areas of N-Agro, N-Health, and N-Teach.
N-power’s first phase of applications commenced last year, when 200,000 applicants were shortlisted.
The government called the first set of shortlisted beneficiaries “first batch” saying more 300,000 names would be released.
The online assessment test conducted was characterised by several technical issues of login and submission problems, though.
But with the latest news by the FG, it is obviously clear that no second batch list should be expected by those who wrote the first test, but were not shorlisted.
