N-Power Urgent: Abuja N-Power Volunteers


Many things concerning the N-Power programme have recently taken place few weeks ago. Different kinds of information about N-Power volunteers were asked. Some were genuine while a lot were fake.

The reasons for requesting the N-Power volunteers to submit their details were two.

1. A request to Focal Persons from Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs Disaster Management and Social Development to compile a comprehensive list of already exited N-Power volunteers (those who have exited prior to the final disengagement of the N-Power volunteers in the month of June and July, 2020).
Though many states will not have the comprehensive list, some don't even have any at all.

2. Recently a template was sent to Focal Persons to get the the N-Power volunteers to write their NPVN ID, their names and to indicate if they are interested in the Transition.

So based on request NO.1 above, many states came up with different ways of collecting information from their N-Power volunteers. These were shared on various social media, there by causing lots of confusion.

FCT already has a comprehensive data of all N-Power volunteers that absconded, resigned or died during the programme (except those that resigned online and those that absconded from their places of work and reported to N-Power Head office by the N-Power Monitoring team).
Similarly we have the data of all those that applied for reposting from one PPA to another and even few women that applied for maternity leave officially. 

Therefore with the records we have, I don't think we will need any information from N-Power volunteers regarding the first request from the Ministry.

However, regarding the second request in which the Ministry is requesting the Focal Persons to get the details of N-Power volunteers that are interested in transition programme, we have decided to share the forms with you via your whatapp group chat and other channels.

Therefore, you are please expected to organize yourselves according to your PPA. Choose a coordinator among you that will coordinate the filling of the form. Once the form has been filled by the N-Power volunteers in a particular PPA, the coordinator will get the list typed and send it to fctabujanpower@gmail.com

Please NOTE the followings:
1. Only forms filled by the N-Power volunteers in their respective PPAs and sent to the email by the selected coordinator will be accepted.
2. Submission of details through SMS, whatpp will also not be accepted.
3. Submission by an individual will not be entertained (it has to be collectively done).
4. Any N-Power volunteer that is still keeping or still holding any materials that belongs to his/her PPA or school records and did not submit it back to his PPA will have his name removed from the list after compilation.

Kindly follow the above instructions strictly.

Thank you.

To Lagos State N-Power Volunteers


The office of Lagos State Focal person is yet to get a memo from the FMHDS to collate biodata of exited N-Power volunteers(Batch A & Batch B). We showed her what other states are doing but she insisted Lagos will only act when she gets an official email from the ministry. 
It should be noted, the office of Lagos State Focal person has sent an email to FMHDS to verify the authenticity of the information flying around. As soon as feedback is gotten, we shall keep everyone posted. 
At this point, we urge every N-Power volunteer in Lagos to be patient. We understand we are all eager to pen down our details however, if we must do it, it has to be authentic and genuine.

How To Check Your N-Power ID Number For Data Collection


This update is for N-Power beneficiaries who are trying to get their N-Power ID number because of the ongoing data collection by State focal persons.
In the ongoing data collection of some states, the N-Power ID number is requested amongst other things. So we decided to compile this update for N-Power volunteers who do not know how to access their N-Power ID numbers.
The N-Power ID number is a number assigned to every N-Power volunteer on the npvn portal. The number comprises of the N-Power beneficiary's State, year of enrollment, and other short numbers as seen in the image.

How To Check Your N-Power ID number
Follow the steps below to get your Npower ID number:

1) Visit http://npvn.npower.gov.ng
2) Click on your name at the top right side of the portal. A new page will pop up displaying your profile information and then you can copy your N-Power ID as shown in the image.
The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs has ordered NSIP State focal persons to collect data of exited N-Power volunteers who are interested in the transition opportunities the Ministry is planning for them.

Transition: Interested N-Power Volunteers Should Submit their NPVN Details- Sadiya NTA


Sequel to the directive given last week on N-Power volunteers' absorption into MDAs, the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, headed by Umar Sadiya Farouq has once again advised exited N-Power volunteers who are interested to forward their details to their states focal officers.
“All N-Power batch A&B interested in transition should submit their npvn details to their state focal person”. Madam Sadiya disclosed this on NTA today, Monday the 30th of August 2020.
She Further stressed that, eligible N-Power volunteers will be given the opportunity to learn better skills to secure viable jobs in the nearest future.
She reiterates her commitment of delivering a successful transition, such that exited N-Power volunteers are inculcated into viable opportunities  
The Minister, through her newly appointed Special Assistant on Media and Publicity,Mrs. Nneka Ikem Anibeze, released a Press Statement last week, thus:  
“we have directed Focal Persons of NSIPs in all the states to submit an updated list and details of the exited N-Power beneficiaries that are interested in participating in the transition plans of the ministry”
The Honorable Minister also warned exited N-Power volunteers to exercise more patience, as transition will take some time, currently, plans are underway to unveil MDAs that will show interest in our plan, the private sectors are not left out of these plans.
“The exited N-Power beneficiaries are advised to exercise more patience and await the result of the efforts being made by the Honorable Minister who is currently engaging various MDAs including the CBN and the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to ensure that the eligible exited N-Power beneficiaries are transited to government progammes or even employment where available”-Umar Sadiya Farouq.

Humanitarian Minister Gives Update On July Stipend And Reasons Why Batch A Was Omitted From Payment


The Honourable Minister stated on Monday, 24th August 20 that approval has been given for the payment of the outstanding stipends for the exited N-Power Batches A and B volunteers. The approval for payments for up to the month of June, 2020 for the two (2) Batches has already been forwarded to the office of the Accountant General of the Federation (AGFs) for final checks and payments. The only outstanding approval waiting to be forwarded to Accountant-General’s Office is for the payment of July Stipends for N-Power batch B volunteers.
The Ministry however noted that about 14000 N-Power beneficiaries that were omitted by the AGF’s Office during the payment from March to June 2020 could be among those rejected by the GIPMIS payment platform due to discrepancies identified with their accounts as conveyed to the ministry by the AGF’s office. According to the report from the AGF’s office, any N-Power beneficiary receiving payment from other government payment platforms will be rejected by the Government Integrated Financial Management System (GIPMIS). Hence their payment will be withheld.
The FMHADMSD has requested for details of those affected and the reasons for their rejection from AGF’s Office and has promised to communicate that to the affected N-Power beneficiaries. However, if the rejection was done in error, those affected should be rest assured that they will be paid all that is due to them as soon as the error is rectified by the AGF’s office.

FMHADMSD Tells N-Power Batch A & B To Exercise Patience As They Prepare For Their Transition


The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and social development have advised the exited N-Power Batch A and B beneficiaries to exercise more patience and await the result of the efforts being made by the Honorable Minister who is currently engaging various MDAs including the CBN and the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

N-Power ID Confirmation: Go Ahead and Confirm Your Details-NSIP Advised


Please all concerned N-Power volunteers should treat as urgent and important, N-Power volunteers are kindly requested to give this exercise the attention and seriousness it deserves.
In line with the transition plan to exit N-Power volunteers into viable alternatives, the National Social Investment Programme has directed all the exited N-Power volunteers to confirm their ID details for easy identification and head count.
This is prior to the fact that, not all N-Power volunteers are still in the N-Power Scheme:

Some N-Power volunteers absconded long ago.  
Some N-Power volunteers willingly resigned after securing better jobs.
Many N-Power volunteers might not be interested in the transition package.
In line with all round verification, all N-Power batch A volunteers are to login to the NPVN portal and do a simple ID confirmation-NSIP director added.
The verification and confirmation will help the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development to know the exact numbers of N-Power volunteers available now, as some N-Power volunteers might have died or not interested.

Apparently, NSIP and FMHDSD have Outlined Three Verification Processes

A) Verification via updating details with Focal persons  in all States
B) Verification via Online (NPVN ID confirmation)
C)Transition test (psychometric test) which miight come in a couple of weeks.

N-Power: Master of All Protests (MAP) in “SIT IN ABUJA” Coming Soon


It is now glaring, the Humanitarian Minister had been dishing out promises without fulfilling any, from the look of things it seems exited N-Power volunteers might not be absolved into Ministries, Departments and Agencies of Government.
“The Minister, Sadiya Umar Farouq had advised N-Power volunteers to exercise more patience and await the result of the efforts being made by her who is currently engaging various MDAs including the CBN and the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to ensure that the eligible exited N-Power beneficiaries are transited to government progammes or even employment where available.
This absorption into MDAs may be a plot to divert N-Power volunteers’ attention from the struggle of permanency.
Knowing fully well, N-Power volunteers are in every local government of the Federation, but these Federal, Ministries, Agencies, Department are mostly located at the state capitals with limited spaces.
In essence, it is practically impossible to absorb all N-Power volunteers into MDAs, it might be a plot to buy more time to select only but few N-Power volunteers.
Sequel to this N-Power volunteers are gearing-up for a MEGA PROTEST, tag “Master of All Protest” (MAP), which will be announced first week of September, 2020.
This will facilitate fulfilment of all promises of absorption because without this nothing can be done as the entire ministry is extremely hard to believe.
The SIT-IN ABUJA Protest held 26th of August 2020, was a huge success and a steppingstone for further protests.
Disengaged N-Power volunteers from the 36 states and the FCT will take Abuja city by surprise for a SIT-IN ABUJA protest. A protest that will last till October 2020.
N-Power Volunteers have already sort police permission and injunction to press on with their demand.
The “SIT-IN ABUJA” protest will be a long and precise one, not until the president addresses the situation himself, disengaged N-Power volunteers will not step an inch out of the Federal Capital territory, protesting N-Power volunteers will take along, with them blankets, stoves, cooking Utensils, Buckets, and Media outlets
“An Open letter to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Copied to the Vice President, the Senate President, Speaker House of Representative and Ministries”:

Our letters were received in the following offices:

Office of The National Assembly Clerk.

Office of Accountant General of the Federation.

“A Freelance journalist that has connection with AIT and Thisday Newspaper have also been contacted and are willing to give the protest full audience and coverage.
Date and time for the Master of All Protests (MAP) in “SIT IN ABUJA” will be announced after due communications are made with all states executives.

Niger State N-Power volunteers


Sequel to the directive from the Minister of Federal Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development to all the Focal Persons of NSIPs in all the States to submit an updated list and details of the exited N-Power Beneficiaries that are interested in participating in the transition plans of the Ministry, Niger State focal person is yet to say anything pertaining to the above issue though there is gap now between the state representative and the focal person. I'm yet to get such directive from the office of the Niger state focal person and i can't start anything or say anything without directive from them.

In lieu of the above, everyone should exercise patience for now, i will make announcement as soon as there is directive.
Please don't panic with this because i see no reason why they are even demanding for our details again when they have our authentic details in their data base already. Why can't they create an icon on our portal that is better, faster and stress free to do such.
This is just another delay tactics to silence us from our agitation but we won't stop.
36 states and FCT N-Power Representatives Forum are seriously working towards all this issues remain calm and no cause for alarm.

Stay tuned

Thanks

To My Gullible NPower Volunteers


It is quite disheartening that N-Power beneficiaries have been deceived by the Minister for Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management in person of Mrs Sadiat Umar Farouq.
To me, it seems the minister is in a state of despondency. She doesn't really know what to do to completely exit N-Power Batch A & B. Yes, she is acting under the Presidency instruction but even the Federal Government themselves don't know what to do to avoid public outcry concerning the fate of N-Power beneficiaries.
The truth is expect nothing from the ministry, if they are really serious, what happened to the below information given to us some months back.
- Some banks have agreed to absorb some N-Power beneficiaries in five states - Mariam uwaize
- Transition icon on our dashboard where we were told to select where will be transited into. (Community policing, Teach, Health e.t.c)
- Your permanency is tied to your PVC, vote President Muhammadu Buhari.
- How about the psychometric test the Minister talked about?
Now they are asking Focal Persons across the federation to submit updated N-Power beneficiaries' data from all states of the federation. The question I ask myself when I go through this are:
"Does it mean the ministries don't have the names of all active N-power volunteers across the federation?" Who are those receiving stipends from the day she took over from Mr.Afolabi?
Who does she think she is deceiving? We or the focal person who are yet to receive any information as regards request of names of N-Power volunteers, no single letter to that effect. We only saw the information on media and the gullible representatives across the federation fell for it.
A cheap deceit from the Minister to silence N-Power beneficiaries and we finally fell for it. Anyway, they have played politics with our future and it's high time we tell them they can't decide our future and move on.

N-Power: Earlier Mistakes Made Will Not Be Repeated


The Minister for Humanitarian Affairs has promised not to make the mistake made with N-Power batch A and B volunteers in terms of clarity of objective to avoid confusion with N-Power batch C. In a press statement released by the Ministry, the Honourable Minister stated that the incoming N-Power Batch C beneficiaries will clearly know the details of their terms of enrollment and exit at the time of entry into the N-Power programme to avoid what happened in the case of N-Power Batches A and B.
Furthermore, an adequate plan will be made well in advance prior to their time of exiting the N-Power program to avoid what happened presently.
According to the Honourable Minister, the candidates seeking enrollment into N-Power batch C will be scrutinized and selected on merit. ”The ministry will follow a transparent process for selecting the qualified N-Power beneficiaries out of the 5,000,000 (five million) who applied".
The N-power programme is designed to assist young Nigerians between the ages of 18 to 35 to acquire and develop life-long skills for becoming change-makers in their communities and players in the domestic and global markets and given a stipend of N30,000 monthly.

N-Power: Transition Package Preparation


The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and social development through the public affairs department, have advised the exited N-Power batch A and B volunteers to exercise more patience and await the result of the efforts being made by the Honorable Minister who is currently in talks with various MDAs including the CBN and the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (FMARD) to ensure that the eligible exited N-Power beneficiaries are transited to government progammes or even employment where available.
In this respect, "we have directed Focal Persons of NSIPs in all the respective states to submit an updated list and details of the exited N-Power volunteers that are interested in participating in the transition plans of the ministry" according to the Honourable Minister.
The Minister also explained that the N-Power Batches A & B beneficiaries knew from the beginning as they were informed that the N-Power Scheme was for 2 years.
However, the non-disengagement of N-Power Batch A Volunteers after 2 years was done out of exigencies of the time. Therefore, exiting N-Power Batches, A & B after 40 and 24 months respectively was in line with the conditions stipulated at the time of their enrolment, she said.

N-Power Volunteers Owed 5 Months Stipends In Error


Some of the N-Power volunteers who were owed 5-month stipends and in the payroll from March 2020 to date were never removed from the payroll.
It is, unfortunate, that some of your payment details were flagged by the paying platform and this made it impossible for you to receive your payment.
The payment flag reason is currently being investigated for resolution and N-Power is encouraging N-Power volunteers to exercise some patience for the outcome of the investigation.
The Ministry however noted that about 14000 N-Power beneficiaries that were omitted by the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation during the payment from March to June 2020 could be among those rejected by the GIPMIS payment platform due to discrepancies identified with their accounts as conveyed to the ministry by the office of the Accountant General of the Federation.
According to the report from the AGF's office, any N-Power beneficiary receiving payment from other government payment platforms will be blocked by the Government Integrated Financial Management System (GIPMIS). Hence their payment will be withheld.
The FMHADMSD has requested for details of those affected and the reasons for their rejection from AGF's Office and has promised to communicate that to the affected N-Power beneficiaries. However, if the rejection was done in error, those affected should be rest assured that they will be paid all that is due to them as soon as the error is rectified by the AGF’s office.

All Oyo State N-Power Volunteers


Concerning the directive from the Minister of Federal Humanitarian Affairs to all the Focal Persons of NSIPs in all the States to submit an updated list and details of the exited N-Power volunteers that are interested in participating in the transition plans of the Ministry, Oyo State Office is yet to get such directive from Abuja and cannot start anything without it.
In lieu of the above, everyone should exercise patience for now, announcement will be made as soon as there is directive to that affect.
Please do not panic, because it is not only Oyo that is yet to start and i see no reason why they are demanding for our details again when they have our authentic details in their data base already. This is just another delay tactics to silent us from our agitation but we will not stop.
Await update as soon as there is directive from Oyo State, until then, remain calm and no cause for alarm.
Thanks.

Comrade Babatunde Abiola
OYO STATE N-POWER REPRESENTATIVE

To All Lagos State N-Power Volunteers


Following the instruction from the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Social Disaster under the leadership of Honorable Minister Madam Sadiat Umar Farouq asking all N-Power beneficiaries who are interested participating in the transition plans of the ministry to submit names to the state Focal person.
We want to use this medium to inform all N-Power beneficiaries from the above state to remain calm as we are working out modalities with the state Focal Person to see how this exercise will run smoothly so that no N-Power volunteer who is interested will be left behind.
The State Focal person will communicate to us in due time and you will all be informed likewise.
For now, we employ everyone N-Power volunteer to remain calm until we get appropriate feedback from the focal person.

Thanks.

FG Moves To Absorb N-Power Beneficiaries Into MDAs


Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouq, says discussions are ongoing to ensure that exited and eligible N-Power beneficiaries are absorbed into government programmes.
Farouq in a statement on Thursday in Abuja by her Special Assistant on Media, Mrs Nneka Anibeze, said exited beneficiaries should exercise more patience and await the result of her efforts.
“We have directed Focal Persons of National Social Investment Programmes in the states to submit an updated list of the exited N-Power beneficiaries that are interested in participating in the transition plans of the ministry.
“Meanwhile, approval has been given for the payment of the outstanding stipends for the exited N-Power Batches A and B beneficiaries.

Press Statement: Payment of Outstanding Stipend To N-Power Volunteers

PRESS STATEMENT
PAYMENT OF OUTSTANDING STIPENDS TO EXITED N-POWER BENEFICIARIES
The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development Sadiya Umar Farouq has approved the payment of stipends to the exiting N-Power beneficiaries under one of its National Social Investment Programmes.
The Honourable Minister stated on Monday, 24th August 20 that approval has been given for the payment of the outstanding stipends for the exited N-Power Batches A and B beneficiaries. The approval for payments for up to the month of June, 2020 for the two (2) Batches has already been forwarded to the office of the Accountant General of the Federation (AGFs) for final checks and payments. The only outstanding approval waiting to be forwarded to Accountant-General’s Office is for the payment of July Stipends for batch B beneficiaries.
The Ministry however noted that about 14000 beneficiaries that were omitted by the AGF’s Office during the payment from March to June 2020 could be among those rejected by the GIPMIS payment platform due to discrepancies identified with their accounts as conveyed to the ministry by the AGF’s office. According to the report from the AGF’s office, any beneficiary receiving payment from other government payment platforms will be rejected by the Government Integrated Financial Management System (GIPMIS). Hence their payment will be withheld.
The FMHADMSD has requested for details of those affected and the reasons for their rejection from AGF’s Office and has promised to communicate that to the affected beneficiaries. However, if the rejection was done in error, those affected should be rest assured that they will be paid all that is due to them as soon as the error is rectified by the AGF’s office.
The Minister also explained that the Batches A & B N-Power beneficiaries knew from the beginning as they were informed that the programme is for 24 months.
Furthermore, the non dis-engagement of Batch A beneficiaries after 24 months was done out of exigencies of the time. Therefore, exiting Batches, A & B after 40 and 24 months respectively is in line with the conditions stipulated at the time of their enrolment. This is corroborated by the fact that when the N-Power programme was transferred to the ministry late last year, there was no plan for either automatic employment into public service or private sector or for transition to entrepreneurship put in place for them before the take over by the Ministry.
Despite this, the exited beneficiaries are advised to exercise more patience and await the result of the efforts being made by the Honorable Minister who is currently engaging various MDAs including the CBN and the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to ensure that the eligible exited beneficiaries are transited to government progammes or even employment where available.
In this regard, “we have directed Focal Persons of NSIPs in all the states to submit an updated list and details of the exited N-Power beneficiaries that are interested in participating in the transition plans of the ministry” the Honourable Minister stated.
While continuing, the Honourable Minister added that the incoming Batch C beneficiaries will clearly know the details of their terms of enrollment and exit at the time of entry into the programme to avoid what happened in the case of Batches A & B.
Furthermore, adequate plan will be made well ahead of their time of exiting the program to avoid what happened presently.
The Honourable Minister concluded that the candidates seeking enrollment into batch C will be scrutinized and selected on merit.
“The ministry will follow a transparent process for selecting the qualified beneficiaries out of the 5,000,000 (five million) who applied”.
The N-power programme is designed to assist young Nigerians between the ages of 18 to 35 to acquire and develop life-long skills for becoming change makers in their communities and players in the domestic and global markets and given a stipend of N30,000 monthly.

N-Power Stipend : Will N-Power Pay Batch A July Stipend?


There have been lots of questions flying accross the internet whether N-Power Batch A Volunteers' July stipend will be paid to them, some N-Power beneficiaries have also stated that the minister of humanitarian affairs, Sadiya Umar Farouq stated that she approved both June and July stipends for both N-Power batches.
The Minister in many occasion has stated that N-Power Batch A volunteers were exited in June while N-Power Batch B were exited July.
To be candid, the payment of N-Power stipend is something you can not predict these days. We are sure of N-Power Batch B July payment and also hoping that N-power Batch A is also paid July stipend.
So the Question whether N-Power Batch A will be paid July stipend is inconclusive until July alert begins to roll in.
However, the Ministry in charge of the N-Power scheme has paid June stipend to both N-Power Batch A and B except those having issues. It will be nice if both batches are paid July stipend.

Unpaid Stipends: OAGF & FMDMSD Express Regret to Genuine N-Power Volunteers


The attention of the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development have been drawn to the complaint of non-payment of some N-Power volunteers during the payment, with some alleging non-payment for upward of five months.
For the records, the Ministry wishes to state that it had always processed, approved and remit necessary information for payments to the Office of the Accountant–General of the Federation (OAGF) whose responsibility it is to credit the various accounts of the N-Power beneficiaries using the GIFMIS platform as directed by Federal Government of Nigeria.
However, after receiving a complaint of non-payment by some N-Power beneficiaries who did same through the ministry, the OAGF (GIFMIS) officially wrote informing the ministry that out of a total of Five Hundred and Sixteen Thousand, Six Hundred (516,600) N-Power beneficiaries data was sent to OAGF for migration in April 2020.
Only a total of Five Hundred and Two Thousand, Five Hundred and Eighty (502,580) data have successfully migrated to the GIFMIS platform, while a total of Fourteen Thousand and Twenty (14,020) N-Power beneficiaries were returned because the N-Power beneficiaries’ account details already exist in other MDAs, which is against the established rule of the N-Power Scheme. 
The Honourable Minister, Sadiya Umar Farouq, regrets any inconvenience this might have caused genuine and eligible N-Power beneficiaries just as the OAGF is saddled with the responsibility of filtering out those denied is working assiduously to remedy the situation.

N-Power Volunteers Are Not Asking For Too Much By Kolade Gbolagade


"The lack of human dignity experienced by Youths is the direct policy of the Elites" Kolade Gbolagade
Any strategy to reduce intergenerational poverty has to be centered on work not welfare-not only because work provides independence and income but also because work provides order, structure, dignity and opportunities for growth in people's lives" BARACK OBAMA.
Africa's most populous nation and largest economy has a youth unemployment challenge.
Nigerias unemployment rate as at second quarter of 2020 is 27.1% indicating that about 21.7 million Nigerians remain unemployed.
Nigeria’s unemployment and underemployment rate (28.6%) is a combined 55.7%.
This is contained in a recently released unemployment data report published by the National Bureau of Statistics.
Nigeria’s youth remain the hardest hit by unemployment with over 13.9 million people aged between 15 and 34 years unemployed.
When APC was campaigning for change ,one of the Cardinal point of their manifesto is economy: tackling poverty and unemployment among the youth population.
True to their words they initiated a social investment program (N-POWER) in tackling the tragedy called unemployment. Recruiting almost 500,000 unemployed graduates and non graduates.
These batches A and B of the SIP(N-POWER) served this country passionately at both Federal and State institutions: in classrooms, health care center's and our farmlands.
Their impact can never be overemphasized most especially in the education sector as they were able to close the gap to a large extent as state schools and Health centers are short staffed and permanent staff overwhelmed with the population of students and patient's respectively.
The Vice President and the inaugural officer In charge of Npower component of the President Muhammadu Buharis , National social investment program (NSIP) rolled up their sleeves to improve upon the success of the program. Thereby creating a transition program for the two batches who have almost served 4 years and 2 years respectively. Such that they can continue to add value to nation building through their hardwork, diligence and productive service that's felt across the length and breadth of the education sector , our health centre and farmlands.
These effort was short-lived not so long the NSIP was transferred into the new Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development headed by Sadiya Umar Faruq.
Her coming ushered a new era of stipend delays, stipend areas and disengagement of Volunteers without any clear cut transition program or policy.
She cut short the mandate of reducing unemployment. Her actions are a reversal to the success achieved in tackling poverty and youth unemployment and unrest. On # Youthmandate we stand.
We wish to remind Minister Sadiya that In the twilight of the first term of PMB's administration , Mr Afolabi told Volunteers that their PVCs is the guarantee to their permanency. The Honorable Minister believed in a kind of social Darwinism. Survival of the fittest. " Government can't do everything" , we were told , ' so it should settle for taking care of the strong and hope that economic ambition and charity will do the rest . Make the rich richer- and what falls from the table will be enough for the jobless youths and those who are trying desperately to work their way into employment.
What happens to partnership with state government and partnership with private corporations. What happens to releasing grants for entrepreneurs among the N-Power volunteers?
We unequivocally reject any transitional offer of loan as we are not going to mortgage our future for any government financial institution.
On # grant we stand.
Madam Minister, you are where you are today not because you are the best among your equals but by divine providence and opportunity by those who believed in you when you were crawling.
They gave you an opportunity to be able to give opportunity to millions whose fate is resting on your shoulder.
If you fail in this quest, history will never be kind to you.
We are not asking for too much. What we are asking of is a fair shot at opportunity that undeniably exists. To be able to add value of service, hardwork , diligence and to be able to earn a decent living with dignity.
It's also a way of inspiring our common ideals as a nation.
The conscience of this nation is on trial and we March that the arc of history bend towards opportunity , empathy and social justice.
Amandla Awetu
Kolade Gbolagade

This is not the first demonstration, two massive demonstrations, were already carried out, but the government claimed they have no funds to permanent N-Power volunteers, citing poor economy and the global pandemic as reasons.
The “SIT-IN IN ABUJA” demonstration will be a long and precise one, not until the president addresses the situation himself, disengaged N-Power volunteers will not step an inch out of the Federal Capital territory.
N-Power volunteers for the demonstration took along blankets, stoves, cooking Utensils, Buckets, and Media outlets.

N-Power Registration Guide

Npower Registration Guide

A.If you have changed your name as a result of been married please make sure it reflects on the credentials you will be using for application.

B. If you have not done change of name, then use the name as it appears in your papers and in your bank account.

C. Apply by yourself, do not give your application to the cafe manager.

Cafe Managers are fond of making errors when they not monitored. If cafe attendant must do it for you, be there to correct whatever errors he or she will be making.

Cross check while applying before you make submission.



D. One of the most important thing is to ensure that your account number is active, and it is linked to your bvn.



In order to avoid the issue of unmatched name, unmatched bvn, make sure you fill the on-line application form as your names appear in your credentials and bank account number.



You could face issue of unmatched name if all your papers and ID bear Jane Doe but you go ahead to fill Jane Ebiweni at the application form.



You could face issue of unmatched name if all your documents and Identity bear Jane Doe, but you go ahead to fill Jane Ebiweni during registration.



Investigations have found out that more than 80% of beneficiaries who are faced with one issue or the other are those who use names that are slightly different in spelling.

Before you register for NPower carefully go through your bank information and register your name the same way it is with your bank information. Failure to do this may put your stipend on hold should you be employed. You can spend up to 6 months without your stipends before it is rectified.

So, if you are using 2 names but in your bank details there are 3 names, register with the three names. And if u are using 3 names but your bank details are 2 names, register with the two names.

1. Register your name as it appears in your account name and BVN example if your account name is Jane, register it like that if you write Janne it is wrong.

2. Do not use apostrophe in your name because BVN cannot take it example Mua’zu, Sa’idu, Shafi’u, A’isha

3. Do not use an abbreviation in your registration example LAWAL SANI KANO do not write LAWAL SANI K, or UMAR B AHMAD, it is wrong write LAWAL SANI or write it completely LAWAL SANI KANOMA because BVN cannot take abbreviation.

4. Avoid changing letters in writing your names example if your name is Bashar do not write Bashir or Bashiru it is wrong, if your name is AISHA don’t write Aishat or aishatu it is wrong, if your name is kabiru do not write Kabir it is wrong.

5. Avoid using symbols, dash or fullstop in writing your names example Abdul-rahman it is wrong write it completely, ABDURRAHMAN. So please inform our family and friends in other to reduced the number of UNPAID Npower volunteers.

Some of the reasons an NPower volunteer might not get paid are :

A..No matching bvn.

B.When you have a matching bvn but your names do not match. At least two names must match

C. Bank account not linked to bvn

D.Providing a non nuban account number . Nuban account number is the 10 digit account number.
