  6. Why worry to ask me about continuity? So why worry to ask me about permanency? So why worry to ask me about when the next batch will be? Why worry about when the portal will be opened, why worry to ask me about when devices will be. I mean as in honestly why worry to ask me when the answers to those questions are directly related and hinged on the re-election of Mr. President Muhammadu Buhari and Mr. vice President Yemi Osinbajo and by extension APC across down balance. The reason is simple, you all worked in states in your PPA’s at the state level, you all seek permanence, your governors are all going to be party to this conversation as I have continued to say to you, it is only going to be easier, make the work easier for Mr President when you ensure that you vote APC and down balance, but the choice is yours, the PVC is yours, it’s in your hands, the choice is yours! The environment will be free for you to make your own free and fair choice, but what is important is that you vote right, and you vote wisely, you vote President Muhammadu Buhari and Yemi Osinbajo, I stand by my choice! They are my choice! I am proud they are my principals, I am with them! And for those of you who have my number, on my WhatsApp dp you will tell, my vote is for Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday Feb’ 23rd 2019. Click the links below to watch https://web.facebook.com/watch/live/?v=1885179871591540&ref=watch_permalink https://web.facebook.com/watch/live/?v=725324497872114&ref=watch_permalink “So these are the questions that for me this is why you all represent the new breed. The new tribe of Nigerian youth, cause these are the questions you should ask whether he is attempting to lure you into election violence. The very first question should be Sir, where is your son? Where is your daughter? Once you bring your son and daughter in front then we will follow, that is the first question, and now the next question then is I have asked you have they offered you a million naira? Have they offered you N150,000 or whatever is your varying category? I think for me what is important to stress is that for each and every one of you in the N-Power program the brand has earned itself not because anyone of us said it, but because you have said it , the brand ‘Equity’ has earned itself based on the investment of Mr. President in each and every of your lives. This is a continued investment that is beyond one day that is of an election process. So please I do not want to see it at all, let what happened in that state, I’m glad that it was only one incident and I’m glad it was one, and I’m glad it is a deleteable incident because election did not hold. Now I want you to promise me that as we go to the polls on Saturday February 23rd there will be no incidence of an N-Power volunteer and by extension the family of an N-Power volunteer, brother, sister, aunty, cousin, youth partaking in any form of electoral violence. This is not about the party you belong, Mr President has said it and said it very clear, we must respect Nigerians and by respecting Nigerians you must respect the choice of Nigerians and we therefore must give Nigerians the ambiance to freely be able to choose the candidate of their choice across all parties that is me quoting Mr President. And so that really is what will want for you and that is what you must be want for yourself and …… so please you must shun Election Violence! and who you want to vote by now, is your choice. I did not know that there should be a conversation about it and it is up to you. I am sure you know that you need to vote wisely and you need to vote right. The opposition, because it is about APC and the others, now the opposition have news to us to say that it is a hand out and that they will toss it into the bin, so? Why worry to ask me about continuity? So why worry to ask me about permanency? So why worry to ask me about when the next batch will be? Why worry about when the portal will be opened, why worry to ask me about when devices will be. I mean as in honestly why worry to ask me when the answers to those questions are directly related and hinged on the re-election of Mr. President Muhammadu Buhari and Mr. vice President Yemi Osinbajo and by extension APC across down balance. The reason is simple, you all worked in states in your PPA’s at the state level, you all seek permanence, your governors are all going to be party to this conversation as I have continued to say to you, it is only going to be easier, make the work easier for Mr President when you ensure that you vote APC and down balance, but the choice is yours, the PVC is yours, it’s in your hands, the choice is yours!

They are my choice! I am proud they are my principals, I am with them! And for those of you who have my number, on my WhatsApp dp you will tell, my vote is for Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday Feb’ 23rd 2019. What about You? That question is for you to answer, or what is common ground for all of us as young Nigerians? is please….and I wrap up with this “Shun Election Violence! Shun Election Violence!!” there is nothing, there is no Allure! There is no Allure!! There is no Allure!!! worth your life and that is worth your destiny and so please let us continue on the path that has continued to steadily grow your destiny by investing directly in your lives and not through a third party.

  13. The federal government, through the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, has commenced the payment of outstanding allowances of Batches A and B of the 2016 and 2018 N-Power volunteers nationwide. According to a statement signed and made available to Blueprint in Abuja Friday by the Permanent Secretary, Bashir Nura Alkali, N150,000.00 each will be paid to 9,066 volunteers, representing 5 months allowances, while the allowances of 4,955 volunteers will be withheld, pending conclusion of further investigation. The statement reads: “Following the payment system challenges faced by the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, which has been overcome, the Ministry has commenced the final payment of the arrears on the few outstanding allowances of Batches A and B N Power volunteers. “The accounts of these 14,021 volunteers were flagged in March 2020 by the Federal Government payment system, the Government Integrated Financial Management Information System (GIFMIS), for various reasons including but not limited to beneficiaries having multiple accounts, and beneficiaries account receiving other payments such as salaries and allowances from multiple Federal Government Ministries, Department and Agencies (MDAs) on permanent employment or for participating in other schemes. These acts violate the regulations guiding the N-Power volunteer programme and could amount to gross misconduct and corruption. “The Ministry carried out detailed investigation in collaboration with relevant government MDAs and so far the accounts of 9,066 volunteers were cleared for final payment. Based on this reality, the 5 months allowance arrears of these volunteers, totaling N150,000.00 each, is currently being paid. The allowances of the remaining 4,955 is withheld pending conclusion of further investigation. Where clear violations of the agreements are established, such violators will be subjected to appropriate sanctions as stipulated by the law. “Contrary to some insinuations in the public domain, this process is a clear demonstration of the Ministry’s resolve to address this unfortunate incidence in a transparent manner for accountability and to forestall its future occurrence. As it has consistently maintained, the investigation carried out by the Ministry is in the best interest of the country and has the major goal of institutionalizing the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP) and ensuring its efficient management in line with Mr President’s resolve to ensure transparency and accountability in its implementation at all times. “The Ministry regrets the delays experienced in concluding this process, but assures the public that transparency and accountability cannot be compromised in all its activities.”
  14. The Federal Government has started disbursing over N1.300B to the over 9000 volunteers flagged by GIFMIS last year Over 9000 affected volunteers would receive N150,000 each before the month of September runs through, however, volunteers flagged by GIFMIS must reactivate their Account with Npower before the fund can hit such an account.

  15. Speaking in a Hausa dialect, the Humanitarian Minister has once again reassured over 500,000 volunteers of batch A and b, on the ongoing effort by the federal government to deliver an exit package that is friendly, capable of bringing economic assistance to the young minds. While responding to questions, the minister said, plans are on “top gear” to deliver a robust CBN package to the youth of the Npower programme However, patients must be exercised in doing this, this is because, we need more time in making our plans work effectively, the present batch C1 and C2 of over 1 million persons will join the Nexit platform. There will be a need to plan effectively for all the batches The present administration has an agenda to lift over 100million persons out of poverty, that is what we are doing, the minister added. She also gave her reassurance to volunteers not paid for 5 months, over 14,200 affected volunteers have submitted their credentials and bank statements, these documents are undergoing manual re-verification and authentication.

Following the onboarding of 510,000 N-Power beneficiaries in the 36 states and the FCT and flagging-off of N-Power Batch C on Monday, August 23, 2021 by Sadiya Umar Farouq, Honourable Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, we take a look at the programme to understand how it impacts its target audience while advancing the Buhari administration’s vision of lifting 100 million people out of poverty by 2030 through the creation of opportunities to enhance the productivity of the Nigerian youth. The programme is designed to empower Nigerian youths aged 18 – 35 by upskilling them for employability or entrepreneurship. Launched in 2016 as a core element of the National Social Investment Programmes (NSIP), it has through the Batch A and B impacted 500,000 beneficiaries. During the onboarding and flag off ceremony, the Honourable Minister, Sadiya Umar Farouq, congratulated the successful beneficiaries and charged them to make optimum use of the opportunity given to them. Batch C is divided into 2 streams with a total of 1 million beneficiaries. Stream C1 is made up of 510,000 beneficiaries while C2 has 490,000 beneficiaries. Stream C1 is broken down into 450,000 beneficiaries under the Graduate component and 60,000 beneficiaries under the Non-Graduate component The ministry has introduced innovations to ensure that the challenges of communication are addressed. With regard to limitation of information flow and internet access across the country, the Ministry has provided access to information via a USSD code. The USSD short code *45665# will provide the required connectivity and technical support for the provision of information services to beneficiaries The Ministry highlighted changes to the N-Power selection and payment processes such as the creation of the National Social Investment Management Systems (NASIMS). It has also entered into partnership with key MDAs including the NYSC, the UBEC, the NPHCDA, the NOA amongst others. The N-Power programme, which focuses on Agriculture, Health, Teaching, ICT, Entrepreneurship and Building, deployed an online application and selection strategy for Batch C to ensure fairness, transparency and credibility in the recruitment process. N-Power Batch C Stream C1 beneficiaries, who were present at the onboarding and flag-off event, were presented with engagement letters by Sadiya Umar Farouq, the Honourable Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.
