In a press release at the just concluded 10th Bola Tinubu Colloquium themed Investing in people, more insight was unveiled on the NPower programme and the impact it has made in communities across Nigeria. The presidential Aide on Job Creation, Mr. Afolabi Imoukhuede spoke about the program.

We sat down with the cluster heads of the various social investment programmes and they gave us a unique insight into the coverage, impact and lessons from their respective social investment programmes.

N-Power Programme:
NPower which is for young Nigerians between the ages of 18 to 35 is an intervention programme that is already addressing the challenge of youth unemployment. NPower provides the structure for large scale and relevant work skills acquisition and development while linking its core outcomes to fixing inadequate public services and stimulating the larger economy.

Where are we now:

  • The Federal Government entered Into an Asset Finance Agreement with the Bank of industry to provide each NPower Beneficiary a device pre-loaded With content from Cisco, Google, Microsoft and Learn Africa.
  • Each device has over one million resources for learning and comes with free internet subscription.

What has been the most fulfilling part of working on NPower?
The most fulfilling part of working on N Power for me is the opportunity to witness firsthand the hope that accompanies smiles when young people are offered placement in the programme. President Muhammadu Buhari’s noble commitment to people Investment has opened the doors of dignity to the unemployed and renewed hope that it is possible for the people to be the priority of the Federal Government.

What roles can States, Local Governments and other Non-Governmental entities play in N-Power?
The many States, Local Governments and other non-governmental entities are synergizing With the Federal Government by producing the conducive environment and other logistics support for the survival and sustainability of the NPower programme. In addition, they can improve the support for the programme by way of the provision of basic Infrastructural, Financial and Human capacity resource for effective Implementation and Monitoring.
