Breaking: FG Increases NSIP Beneficiaries

The federal government has increased the National Social Investment Programmes (NSIP), comprising the Home-Grown School Feeding Programme (HGSFP), Job Creation Unit (N-Power), Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) and Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme (GEEP), to accommodate more beneficiaries.
The minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajia Sadiya Umar Farouq, stated this Monday in Abuja during a ministerial press briefing.

 
While listing achievements of the ministry since its creation in August last year, Farouq said that the increase in the number of beneficiaries is in line with plans of President Muhammadu Buhari to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in the next ten years.
She said: “The purpose of this gathering is to acquaint the Nigerian general public with the activities and programmes of the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development since inception. There is no better time that validates reasoning behind the creation of the ministry as now. The ministry has at these times of emergencies and national need, relentlessly led efforts in the implementation of a series of coordinated interventions targeted specifically to ease the burden of vulnerable socio-economic segments of the country, before, and during Covid-19 lockdown.

 
“In order to double the scope of the National Social Investment Programmes, Mr President has graciously approved the expansion of all NSIP programmes, such as increase of N-Power beneficiaries from 500,000 to 1,000,000, increase of GEEP beneficiaries by 1,000,000 and increase of beneficiaries of Home-Grown School Feeding by 5,000,000.
“In championing social inclusion, deliberate efforts were made to capture vulnerable youth and groups which included women, people with special needs, in the expansion of the National Social Register by one million households. Also, in the Economic Sustainability Plan, we have over 1,000,000 urban poor in the National Social Register.
“As of June 2020, 4.41% of the total number of individuals captured in the National Social Register are recognised as Persons with Special Needs. This comes to a total of six hundred and eighty-five thousand and ninety (685,090) Persons with Special Needs in the National Social Register.

 
“About 3.7 million households comprising more than 15.5 million individuals have been captured on the National Social Register. Of that number, over 2.8 million of the households which comprise 13.5 million Individuals are eligible for Conditional Cash Transfer. This numbers are spread across the 36 states and FCT. The numbers are further broken down to 7.6 million males and 7.9 million females.
“In line with Mr. President’s directive to expand the National Social Register, we have developed a strategy for targeting the urban poor. This register will use existing databases from the National Communications Commission (NCC), and the Bank Verification Number (BVN) from Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System (NIBSS). Here we are collaborating with the Central Bank of Nigeria, and the Ministry of Communication and Digital Economy.”

N-Power: DELAY TACTICS LAUNCHED AGAIN BY THE FEDERAL MINISTRY OF HUMANITARIAN AFFAIRS, DISASTER MANAGEMENT AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT.

The Press released on Friday, 27th November, 2020 by the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs is another delay tactics just like the Transition form we filled earlier.

No NEXIT portal has been created as claimed by the Ministry. What is now the importance of the TRANSITION FORM the Ministry asked volunteers to fill earlier? They are just trying to buy more time and they don't have meaningful plan for us.

Even the CBN program was not explained and they purposely announced the abstract  NEXIT Portal so that we won't embark on National protest in December. We say NO to another delay tactics from the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs.


We have decided to embark on National Peaceful Protest across all the 36 States and FCT in December which will be announced officially through a Facebook Live Chat on our official Facebook page and to explain how it will go.


BELOW IS OUR REQUEST:


1.  The 36 States and FCT N-Power Representatives request that they be brought and shown the template of the purported Transition. 


2. The Transition ( whether absorption into Government agencies or meaningful grants (600,000 or above for  entrepreneurship) must be ready.


3.  Payments of over 14, 000 Unpaid Volunteers from the Month of March to July, 2020 must begin immediately as all documents needed for this has been supplied by the volunteers 2 months ago. 


4. All Batch B devices and some batch A devices must be delivered immediately as this forms part of the agreement of engagement. 

Nothing short of the above request will be accepted.

N-Power: We Have Had Enough

We have had enough of empowerment this empowerment that.
This present administration seems to be the most deceitful and cunning of all the past administrations in this country. Can any of the so called leaders' sons and daughters be enrolled for this petty and short-lived empowerments.
Do not start to leap up for joy in your hearts and minds when the news broke in the week that the joint portal, NEXIT is to or has been opened by the CBN and FDMH. Mind us all, it is still in the pipeline just like the transition forms that was in circulation and up till date nothing tangible came out of it.
Exited N-Power beneficiaries be wise please. It costs the government nothing to successfully give full time employment to less than 500,000 (some dead while others voluntarily exited) beneficiaries.
And to all our amiable representatives out there across the 36 states and the FCT, i want to urge us not to go or look back on the proposed plans we already have come December 7th.
Ns: I reiterate this portal opening of a thing is to discourage and deceive us from going on with our plans.
Let us all in the end have every reason to say that we saw, we fought and we conquered. It is until this is achieved then we can say we are victorious.

How can a reasonable government be this wicked to its own citizens despite our efforts to deliver the government during the last general election.

N-Power: Are We Still In Or Out?

Are we still in or out? N-Power exited volunteers asked questions regarding the Federal Government mention of their name among the 16 opportunities for young Nigerians by the Buhari led administration listed in the latest update by the presidency.
The first number on the list stated that N-Power: 500,000 enrolled in 2 batches between 2016 and 2017 receiving 30,000 monthly, with enrolment of 3rd batch of 400,000 in progress.
A statement that has left the disengaged N-Power volunteers confused and are now asking whether President Buhari knows that the N30,000 stipends that his administration used to pay the 2016 and 2017 batches of N-Power Volunteers have stop since July 2020.
The true situation on ground now, is that the exited N-Power batch A and B are still waiting for proposed transition program after being disengage since July this year.
The Minister of humanitarian affairs, Sadiya Umar Farouq have earlier advised the exited N-Power volunteers to be patient as the management is working on a transition programme for them.

Buhari’s N-Power, Anchor Borrowers Programme Has Made Little Impact — Ndume

The senator blamed the poor output and slow progress of the programmes on poor implementation.
ByKunle Sanni  November 16, 2020 3 min read
The Muhammadu Buhari administration’s Social Intervention Programmes (SIP’s) has made little impact in addressing challenges facing Nigerian youth despite the billions invested in it over the past five years, according to Ali Ndume.
The senator representing Borno South senatorial district, said this on Sunday, while he appeared on a Channels Television programme, Politics Sunday.
He said the poor output and slow progress of the programmes were as a result of poor implementation by its administrators handling the projects.
“I can tell you that from the beginning, we came in with three main agenda. One is to secure the country, two is to fight corruption, and three is to provide infrastructure. You cannot say that the president has not performed in these three areas. But the impact and then the implementation is the problem.
“Under normal circumstances, you don’t expect the president to do that personally himself. He is supposed to get the able hands. That is where the problem started. That is where we have the problem.

“I will give you an example, in the case of the youth. When we were campaigning, we saw many youths and the president asked, what are we going to do with this? That was when the idea of N-Power came,” Mr Ndume said.
The N-Power programme is one of the four empowerment schemes set up by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2016 to improve the living conditions of millions of poor Nigerians across the country.
The scheme was domiciled in the office of the vice president, Yemi Osinbanjo during Mr Buhari’s first term in office. It has since been moved to the Humanitarian Affairs ministry, headed by Sadiya Farouq at the inception of the President’s second term in office.
The SIPs include the school feeding programme for primary school pupils, N-Power for jobless graduates, the conditional cash transfer for elderly vulnerable Nigerians, and the government empowerment programme that includes TraderMoni – giving microloans to small-scale traders.

 
However, since the inception of the schemes, N500 billion has been budgeted for its four components, with many Nigerians questioning their impact.
The wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, had in May 2019, criticised the social investment programmes (SIP) administration, formerly coordinated by Maryam Uwais, a senior special assistant to her husband, Mr Buhari.
Mrs Buhari said the initiative failed to reach its intended beneficiaries, in at least Adamawa and Kano states.


In the same vein, during the Covid-19 induced-lockdown, PREMIUM TIMES reported in April, how the leadership of the National Assembly criticised the Humanitarian Minister’s approach to distributing social grants to Nigerians who bore the economic brunt of the pandemic.
Similarly, while Mr Ndume accused government officials of not doing their job to ensure proper implementation of the SIP’s; he also spoke on how the Covid-19 palliatives donated by the organised private sector and the government were not properly distributed to vulnerable Nigerians.
Both the federal government and other private sector-led Coalition Against COVID-19 (CACOVID) had on separate occasions provided and distributed relief items such as food, medical supplies, and other commodities to state governments and Abuja, for distribution to vulnerable Nigerians to combat the economic effects of the pandemic.
Many of these items had been delivered and handed over to the state governments for distribution to their citizens.
While some state governments claimed they have distributed the items to the vulnerable members in their various communities, some chose to warehouse theirs for whatever reasons.


Mr Ndume said, “In the first year he approved N500 billion and the money was released for graduates to be employed, especially in teaching and other areas and all that. But if you hear the number and the impact, they don’t just add up. You hardly see it on the ground, that is where the problem is.”
“For the past five years, the president has been supporting the people. He came up with TraderMoni and then Anchor’s Borrower’s Project, he came up recently with a youth investment programme of N75 billion and then another additional N25 billion was set aside to pay attention to the requirement that will enable them to take off.
“But those charged with the responsibility of implementing these laudable projects approved by the president are not doing their job.
“You could see even during the COVID-19 pandemic when there was lockdown, the president and the business community and the non-governmental agencies came in and then gave the support.
“But then what happened? They went and locked these things in various warehouses and then the people went and ransacked those places. All these things would have been avoided.”

N-Power: Nigerian govt plans to spend N400 billion on NPOWER, TRADERMONI, others in 2021

For 2021 fiscal year, the Nigerian government, under the ministry of humanitarian affairs, has proposed to spend N400 billion on its social investment programmes (NSIP).
This comprises a total recurrent expenditure of N350 billion and N50 billion for capital spendings, according to a document submitted to the National Assembly by its joint committees on poverty alleviation which PREMIUM TIMES exclusively obtained.
The document showed that while the proposed recurrent expenditure for next year would remain unchanged, the estimate for personnel cost was increased by 2.31 per cent, from N166.3 billion in 2020 to N170.1 billion in 2021.
This increase is “because of (an) increase in the number of NPOWER (NTEACH Hub) beneficiaries from 400,000 to 450,000,” the document said.
This means that NPOWER and its affiliate sub-programmes on job creation for the enrolment of 450,000 N-Power volunteers and training, tooling and mentoring of 54,000 non-graduate beneficiaries would cost about N200.3 billion.
Also, the ministry penned N145 billion for the Home-Grown School Feeding (NHGSFP), which is to feed 9.86 million children, de-worm 7 million children and recount the pupils.
Likewise, N35.8 billion has been billed to be expended on the GEEP – comprising marketmoni, tradermoni and farmermoni – for recurrent costs and capital spendings, which includes loan funds and the “programme’s setup and technology.”
The GEEP offers soft loans to local farmers and traders, and next year, a total of 1.66 million beneficiaries are intended to be captured in the programme’s net.
Meanwhile, for the Conditional Cash Transfer (NCTO and NASSCO), about N10 billion was pencilled for purchasing field kits, biometric capturing and the implementation of the National Social Safety Net Coordinating Office National Social Register (NSR) for the poor and vulnerable.
This proposed amount is meant for cash transfer to 205,000 rural women, 1,800 IDPs in camps and 50,000 parents of out-of-school children.
In other planned spending for next year, the ministry would spend N1.83 billion on “monitoring and evaluation devices, consultancies and interactive dashboard.”
Other proposed spendings include N1.6 billion for communications, multimedia equipment and vehicles; and N1.7 billion for office setup, equipment and vehicles.
The remaining fraction of the programme’s proposed budget would go into the “development of SIP Management Information System (NASIMS), Project Raise Application Software, Community Infrastructure Project Solar Kiosks and ICT operational support equipment/vehicles for the implementation.”
This would cost N3.6 billion.

N-Power Lagos: Summary Of The Sensitization Workshop Held 10/11/2020

The program begins with prayers and the the commissioner came in  and also the LAGHA honorable member house committee on Wealth and Employment. The meeting was delayed for over an hour as the Governor presented the 2021 budget today to the Lagos State House of Assembly. So the meeting was basically about entrepreneurship or self employment as they said is the key,  Knowing who you are, your strength and weakness. We should be solution provider and job provider and not job seekers. We should all focus on entrepreneurship rather than white collar job. Two speakers spoke extensively on that. N-Power volunteers were given opportunity to ask questions and as expected many bombs were dropped as questions. Mr Felix was part of the people that ask questions. They answered by saying we should always explore Lagos state government website's like LSTEF to utilize the opportunity available there as regards to start up capital. For those that applied for the internship program that we all will be considered as another round of test will be sent to our email addresses as they have received reports about the difficulty of the questions and the Governor will be communicated to as regards the willing and able Nteach volunteers for likely absorption. A portal or online presence will be created for the N-Power Alumni for seemless  information and collaboration.

N-Power: Kano Volunteers Desist Themselves From The Ongoing Planned Demonstration

In a statement released by the President N-Power Association Kano state, Assalafi isa Ibrahim, he called on N-Power Kano volunteers to desist themselves from the ongoing planned protest by their colleagues in the other States.
The statement Read as follows:
We the N-Power beneficiaries of Kano state hereby wishes to notify the general public and our members that we are not a part of the ongoing planned protest in respect to the payment of beneficiaries 5months backlog or any exit package. We wish to state that we are not part of it and we will not be part of it and there is no any of our member here that traveled to abuja for this protest.
If you will all recall some time ago there was a verification of all beneficiaries with this problem and the authorities in charge have promised to see that this problem is solved. So therefore we will allow the process to go and not interfere in it.
We the beneficiaries of Kano state N-Power, we are law abiding and good citizens of this our dear country.
So we enjoyed all our members to stay calm and desist from this act as this will not yield any positive result and let the authorities in charge do there job.

N-Power Volunteers Gives Reasons For Peaceful Demonstrations To Be Held 12th November

N-Power Volunteers have set Nation Wide Meeting slated for Thursday 12th November at the National Assembly Complex/National Secretariat Abuja in continuation of their demands for permanency/Exit Package.
The Volunteers defined N-Power as a group of common men and women organised by President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Osinbajo about Four years ago to alleviate poverty and reduce unemployment among the Nigerian youths.
According to them, they have legal backing because the volunteers didn't gather themselves to form the group, it is a group organised by the presidency for unemployed graduates.
They further stated that the reason for going to Abuja for the protest is that, when the group salaries stopped on June /July, the Federal Government promised to fix individuals into available spaces in MDAs and we are going to remind them their promises because since when the salaries stopped, majorities that have families and dependants are finding it difficult to feed their families. Also to enable government to know we are are serious with their promises for us. If we don't go and ask, nobody will ask on our behalf. Also to remind them the option for those who have business ambitions and approvals of backlogged payments
Our going out to protest is not going to riot or causing any trouble? There's no reason for that because our request has already introduced to us by the government, there's no strange or fresh demands.
Why everybody should be in Abuja on Thursday in order to get recognition from government and to confirm our seriousness, because if we don't go, you don't go, everybody doesn't go, who's going to represent us? They added.
They also stated that everyone must take the protest serious, now that Nigerian constitution has restricted, banned and disallowed anybody above 35years of age to get any benefits like employment, empowerment, loan or grant from government because of this national discrimination against 35years above, everyone must see his or her presence on Thursday as important because it will be somehow harder to get some opportunity from government as a result of age discrimination.
Protest isn't done on phone, let's go there physically the much we are, the more they will pity us and believe that none of us has a meaningful job. A day seriousness can get us permanent appointment and other benefits and individuals life will have positive changes, they concluded.
Whatever request individuals have, come with your complaint and everything will be submitted.
God bless Federal Republic of Nigeria, God bless all N-Power beneficiaries, God bless all Nigerians.
By Abdulramon Musa, Comrade Adeseye Adeola, Bashir Usman Gobir, Emeka Moses, and Yinka Ibrahim.

REPORT OF INTERACTIVE SESSION OF EKITI STATE YOUTH WITH GOVERNOR,  DR JOHN KAYODE FAYEMI ON 1ST OF NOVEMBER 2020

The session started around 2pm on Sunday and I am able to ask Mr. Governor the following questions.
I tasked Him to use his good office as the chairman of Nigeria Governor's forum to speak to the presidency to give the exited Npower beneficiaries exit package.
Also I asked him for his plan for the exited 12,000   beneficiaries in Ekiti State that it won't be good for us to go back to the street after we have been trained for over 2years in the program.
Governor's Response
He said work is ongoing seriously at the presidency about the exit package , that we should expect it soonest.
On the second question. He said some of the beneficiaries applied in the State recruitment and some has been picked. He also said those in Nagro will be considered soon in a program coming up in Ministry of Agric.
Thirdly he said five of the beneficiaries has been given appointment at FUOYE of which I told him I knew about two appointments and the Governor said he will investigate about the remaining three. The former president Mr. Damilare may wish to provide further details about the remaining three. 
The session ended around 4pm. 
Thanks.

N-Power: Reps Want Youth, Sports Ministry To Supervise N-Power, Others

Both the House of Representatives and the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, have decried the low amounts proposed for the youth in the 2021 Appropriation Bill.
At a budget defence session organised by the House Committee on Youth Development in Abuja on Monday, the lawmakers also stated that the ministry should be supervising or at least involved in the execution of youth-related programmes in the country.
The lawmakers also described the allocation to the ministry as inadequate, just as the minister said various projects by the ministry would suffer for it.
Most of the social intervention programmes of the current regime, under the National Social Investment Programme, are domiciled in the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.
The N-Power Programme, which is targeted at the youth, has N-Teach, N-Agro, N-Volunteer Corps, N-Build, N-Creative and N-Tech, among others.
The Chairman of the committee, Mr Yemi Adaramodu, particularly stated that the Federal Government should have proposed more for youth empowerment, especially as the country just witnessed a nationwide protest by younger Nigerians, tagged #EndSARS and ‘Soro Soke’.
Adaramodu said, “There is one thing that is very noticeable – notably noticeable – and it is that even coming out of the recent happenings in the country, we believe that the government must consciously and courageously ensure that the budget for the ministry that is going to handle youth matters should be a first of its kind in Nigeria.
“When I look at what is submitted here (2021 budget), even the budget performance of this current year – 50, 30, 45 per cent – and then we want the youth to be taken care of; will this not amount to lips service? Is it not going to amount to the issues of ‘Soro Soke’?
“We found out that the Ministry of (Sports and) Youth (Development) that is supposed to be in charge of youths in Nigeria is oblivious of what is happening to the youths that are being taken care of in the N-Power. The government of President Muhammadu Buhari has a lot for the youth; so many programmes; but how are these programmes being run?”
In his presentation, Dare, who noted that the proposal was made before the #EndSARS protests, said, “The 2021 budget emphasises investment in our citizens, particularly the youth, in order to achieve the aspirations of government and the move to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty.
“It is highly important to note the present capital budget proposal, though higher than last year’s, is yet grossly inadequate to finance the maintenance of five stasis and the mini sports centres that we have across the country, and the youth development centres.”

N-Power Demonstration Next Week Thursday 12/11/2020

Notice of N-Power Peaceful Demonstration Next Week
To all N-Power Beneficiaries please share to as many groups as you can.
N-Power Demonstration next week Thursday 12/11/2020. 
Lets all know this.
Federal government has restricted, excluded and banned everyone above 35 years of age from National benefits like jobs, empowerment, and other social benefits. But believe no matter their ages they cant hold any posts in politics and expect anybody to vote for them even as their age is above that 35 years also. 
Reason for everybody to gather in front of Federal secretariat next week Thursday is to appeal to Honourable Minister to fufill her promises on :
1) Fixing those who have interest in working at MDAs 
2) Giving those who have business plans money to start their business and 
3) Payment of outstanding stipends of some beneficiaries owned since March. 
If you are almost 30years of age or above 30 years this is your chance to come out next week Thursday because if you are waiting for next administration they will use the BVN to screen you out.
What about certificate you spent many years to get, that's why it's very necessary for you to get something tangible from this N-Power program. 
Tell everyone that next week Thursday we are meeting in front of Federal Secretariat Abuja to plead to federal government to help us on time and do us favor. 
Most especially to appeal to Honourable Minister Sadiya to fulfil her promises on N-Power. 
Note:
It's not mandatory to put on N-Power vest or cap since it wasn't everyone that got it.
Your presence matter please 
God bless every volunteer.

Video: Take Advantage Of FG Youth Initiatives- Sadiya Umar Farouq

Sadiya Umar Farouq who was Guest of Honour at the 2020 National Youth Day Celebration held on Sunday at Abuja, said that it was expedient for youths to take advantage of various interventions under the National Social Investment Program towards youth empowerment.
Addressing participants from the 36 states of the Federation and Federal Capital Territory, she said that the future of any country is largely dependent on the quality of its youths.
“President Muhammadu Buhari's administration has made direct efforts to tackle youth unemployment and re-energize service delivery in four key sectors Education, Agriculture, Health and Vocational Skills through the N-Power programme".
With the N-Power programme exiting 500,000 youths through training and providing opportunities for unemployed Nigerian youths between the ages of 18-35 years across the 774 Local Governments of the federation, the Minister said that more youths need to step up and take advantage of these opportunities.
“At the end of engagement of the first two batches of the program, over 100,000 beneficiaries have become entrepreneurs and are now employers of labor”.
The Minister stressed that Nigeria being the most populous country in Africa with one of the youngest populations in the world, has a critical role to play in the immediate and long term future of the country. She said this informed the continued wise investment by the government in this critical age group for stability, prosperity and sustainable national development.
"The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development is partnering very closely with other agencies of Government involved in youth empowerment programs and the Central Bank of Nigeria to see how the exited N-Power beneficiaries can key into the various youth empowerment interventions that are offered by the Bank".
With over 5 million Nigerian youths cutting across all the six geopolitical zones and states of the federation applying for the next batch of the N-Power programme, Umar Farouq promised that government will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the new enrolment is made more efficient and impactful.

PMB List N-Power Among Other Youth Initiatives

President Muhammadu Buhari Sunday in Abuja appealed to Nigerian youths to end street protests and participate in meaningful discussions with government aimed at comprehensive reforms to end all forms of police brutality against Nigerians.


The President spoke in his message to the maiden National Youth Day celebration, observed on November 1, coinciding with the African Youth Day celebration.


Against the backdrop of the recent protests against police brutality in the country, leading to the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), President Buhari, who was represented by the FCT Minister, Muhammad Bello, told the gathering that the pleas of Nigerian youths have been heard by his administration.


He added that the Federal Government ‘‘now wants to hear concrete and practical ideas,’’ from the youths, while acknowledging their constitutional right to peaceful protests.


''You must realize that protests cannot last indefinitely. My government will not lift a hand to stop or suppress you.


''However, the fact of the matter is that other forces and actors will seek to take over your protests that they may redirect them in ways you did not intend and perhaps do not agree with.


''Every successful protest movement the world over has understood that there comes a time when activity must move from the street to the negotiation table. That time for you has come. Do not be afraid of this reality. You should welcome it.


''It is important that we all strive to use this moment constructively. Too many people have already sacrificed too dearly. It is our duty to use this fateful situation to move ourselves to a more just and caring society.


''As youth, you have a nation and a future to build. My government will always be your faithful partner in this essential and patriotic endeavour,'' he said.


President Buhari also used the occasion to express his strong opposition to the wrongful use and imposition of violent force against any innocent, law-abiding persons, particularly young people.


''No one who is obeying the law, whether they are in line waiting for a taxi or in a peaceful protest line, should be harassed or brutalized by law enforcement agencies.


''It is because of my abiding belief in the people’s constitutional rights that we moved with dispatch to abolish SARS and to consider other reforms that will enhance the quality of law enforcement and improve the relationship between the police and public which is a pre-requisite in a just society.


''To allow protests is not a sign of weakness.  It is a sign of strength and belief in democracy, and faith in the innate goodness of our people.


''This also shows confidence in the ability of our government to work with the people toward a reasonable and practical resolution to any challenge,'' he said.


Describing Nigerian youths as agents for social change, economic growth and sustainable development, President Buhari said his administration has established no fewer than 25 initiatives aimed at empowering youths across the country.


He noted that these noble initiatives, ongoing in the last five years, were aimed at placing Nigerian youths on the path of career development, entrepreneurship, skills development and direct employment.


''Today we will unveil the official logo of the N75 billion Nigeria Youth Investment Fund for the period of 2020 – 2023.


''This novel fund is dedicated to investing in the innovative ideas, skills and talents of Nigerian Youths and to provide our youths with a special window to access much needed financing, business management skills and other inputs critical for sustainable enterprise,'' he said.


The President announced that over one million applications have already been received since the Youth Investment Fund Portal went live on 12th of October 2020.


He listed other youth-based initiatives, consistent with his administration’s policy of positioning youths for strategic leadership in different fields of endeavour, as follows:


''The birth of the Nigerian Youth Policy in 2019, the Nigeria Youth Investment Fund in July 2020, ...Young Farmers Initiative, Digital Skills, Entrepreneurship, Employability and Leadership/Mentoring (DEEL) programme, which recently received an approval of N4 billion naira for implementation, and the Not Too Young to Run Act.''


Other initiatives, according to the President, include the  Presidential Youth Empowerment Scheme (P-YES), the N-Power, SI and Disaster Management, the Youth Entrepreneurship Support (YES) Programme, Graduate Internship Scheme (GIS) and the Youth Enterprise with Innovation In Nigeria (YouWIN).


The President also added the $20 million Technology Fund for Young Innovators as some of the major initiatives empowering youths across the country.


Restating his call for national unity, President Buhari said Nigerian youths are better positioned to drive the indivisibility of Nigeria and collectively overcome whatever challenges bedevilling the nation.


''On this special occasion, we affirm our faith and confidence in the indivisible entity called Nigeria and in its future.


''We face many challenges but, in you, this nation has the collective ability and drive to overcome that which confronts us,’’ he said.


At the event  with the theme: ''Invest in the Youth, Secure Our Future'', the winners of the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development organised 60-day App Challenge and Youth Innovators were recognised and received cash rewards.

Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Buhari.
