With the addition of the N-Creative, the number of N-Power beneficiaries have increased to 546,449.”

“The training will enable beneficiaries learn the necessary animation skills sought in storytelling, illustration/ graphic design, post production, script writing and voice acting. At conclusion, the training will upskill 3,000 young Nigerians as developers of world – class animated content for local and global consumption.
“The N-Power programme is a critical part of the National Social Investment Programmes domiciled in the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development (FMHADMSD) and designed to achieve the National objectives of poverty reduction and job creation.
“The N-Power programme is key to helping young Nigerians acquire and develop life-long skills that ensure they become solution providers and entrepreneurs in their communities.
“N-Power has three core segments: N-Power Volunteer Corps – the Graduate programme, N-Power Build – Non graduate programme and N-Power Knowledge – Which is a non-graduate programme and embodies the N-Tech Hardware, N-Tech Software and the N-Creative training programme.”
“The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development is committed to ensuring that the strategic objectives of all the social intervention programs are achieved. Therefore, in order to maintain the highest level of attendance and discipline by our N-Power Creative trainees, training accommodation is compulsory.”
She added that, “during the camp training, each trainee is entitled to a feeding allowance of N900 per beneficiary per day.  Each trainee is also entitled to Ten Thousand Naira (N10,000) monthly stipends for a period of one year.
“In addition, a laptop is provided as a training tool, procured to enable trainees maximize the skills learnt during their stay in the camp and to start off with their vocation.”
Meanwhile, the Programmme Coordinator, Insikak Okon, said the N-CREATIVE participants will be “trained by veterans in the movie industry such as Segu Arinze and others.
“Nigeria Film Commission (NFC), will continue to collaborate with the other MDAs, organized private sector and international development agencies in increasing the employability of our youths through skill acquisition and training.”
One of the participants, Love Elias, said she was very happy to have been given this opportunity to aquire skills that will make her an entrepreneur and employer of labour and not a job seeker anymore.
“I am very happy that I was considered for this training out of the millions that applied. I am enjoying the train and hope to become an entrepreneur, own my own job and train others for free because I got the training for free.”

When N-Power Permanent Volunteers

Below are 5 things that will possibly happen when N-Power Permanent Volunteers:
1) Nigeria economy will improve with the right engagement of volunteers into the various sectors of the economy either via N-EXIT or others to discharge their duties diligently using the experience they have acquired from the N-Power Programme.
2)Unemployment will reduce: If N-Power will be able to engage Volunteers base on their preference, absorb some of the beneficiaries if not all into the various government organization, and then Others be engaged via cbn Empowerment options as prefer by the Volunteers, the unemployment problem in Nigeria will reduce. The numbers of unemployed graduates we have in Nigeria, absorbing 500,000 Graduates will help a long way. Note not every graduate can succeed as an entrepreneur.
3) Illegal Youth Migration will reduced: The rate at which young Nigerians are taking the risk of migrating illegally to foreign countries to seek for better livelyhood which sometime turns out to impact Nigeria negatively will reduced.
4) Crime will reduce: The problem of crime in Nigeria will reduce when most of these beneficiaries are absorbed into the civil service and others to the Nexit option rather than disposing them back into the streets. An idle man is an evil work shop.
5) They will retained their self esteem: N-Power has help many Graduate to regain their self esteem after many years of searching and seeking for employment without any meaningful result of securing a job until they were empowered by N-Power. Now that the Batches A and B have been Exited, letting them go back to the street will make most of them loss their self esteem again which is not good for the society, absorbing most of them into the civil service and other opportunities will help them retained their self esteem thereby creating a good atmosphere in their communities.

N-EXIT: MINISTER HINTS ON TRANSITION PLAN

A Beneficiary Management System is to be introduced by the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development to manage payments, address grievances and improve dissemination of information of the federal government's Social Investment Programmes.
The Minister, Sadiya Umar Farouq made this known at the 4th Review of the National Home Grown School Feeding Programme NHGSF held today at NAF Centre Abuja.
She said that the Beneficiary Management System will enhance a unified database of all NSIP beneficiaries and a consolidated register for beneficiary payments as well as create and support legal frameworks to strengthen and sustain the NSIPs amongst others. 
While enumerating action points and recommendations to improve the coordination, administration and implementation of the various Social Investment Programs, Umar Farouq also stated that consistent engagement with stakeholders including Focal Persons and Cluster Program Managers through meetings and other means of information dissemination have commenced among other proposals.
“It is therefore my pleasure to inform you that we have heeded your recommendations and exceeded expectations. Since the programs were transferred, we have had continuous engagements with all State program officials and have assigned desk officers to each of the clusters within the Ministry, whom you have been liaising with for many months. The Ministry is also working with Federal and State MDAs to evolve policies that will support the institutionalisation of the social investment programs.

 
“We have restructured the GEEP program and other NSIPs to align them with our mandate of providing fair focused social inclusion programmes to the vulnerable in Nigeria. In addition, the FCT has been included in the school feeding programme while Kwara State is rounding off its vendor selection process and is expected to commence feeding in the next few months”.
The minister hinted that plans have been concluded for the exit and transition of the N-Power batches A & B through the creation of the N-EXIT portal, which will allow interested beneficiaries to sign up and access other Government empowerment opportunities.
The NHGSFP is to reach an additional 5 million pupils including children in non-conventional educational settings according to a directive by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Consequently, more collaboration with the Nutrition Society of Nigeria and other stakeholders to streamline nutritional guidelines and other critical aspects of the NHGSFP will be stepped up.

 
Earlier, the Special Adviser to the President on NSIPs Dr Mohammed Nasir Mahmoud outlined the problems facing the National Home Grown School Feeding Program.

 
This includes the COVID 19 pandemic, expired MOU Governance, weak Monitoring and Evaluation system Coordination at all levels, Data quality, Compliance with guidelines, Political environment in States and the feasibility of feeding each child at N70 per meal. In his remark, the Technical Adviser to the President and National Coordinator NSIP Dr Umar Bindir noted that absolute poverty was the bane of major problems in the country.
“Absolute poverty has caused recruitment into Insurgency Operations, large pool of school drop outs and school children, kidnapping, banditry, drug addiction, communal challenges, political thuggery and General insecurity and lack of Peace”.
Dr Bindir called on all stakeholders and partners to work hard towards the realization of lifting 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in the next 10 years.
In attendance were all the Focal Persons, Programme Managers and nutritionists in the 36 states and Abuja, Directors of the ministry and other partners.

N-EXIT: WHY YOU SHOULD NOT MISS Covid-19 LOAN FOR N-EXIT LOAN

Some N-EXIT Applicants who got called to receive Covid-19 Loan were scared to receive the loan in order not to miss the N-EXIT loan. It is better to receive the covid-19 loan than to miss the loan if really you are going to put the fund into use for business purposes so that you will be able to pay back the loan.
Note that the Management of N-EXIT Programme has not given any update stating that beneficiaries of the covid-19 loan will not benefit from N-EXIT loan.
Both the Covid-19 and N-EXIT loan is to be utilized for business purposes, it is not the usual N-Power Stipends that Exited N-Power Volunteers use to receive. When you are opportuned to benefit from any of the mentioned loans, you are expected to invest the money into a sustainable business venture in order to make profit and payback. 
Whichever loan you are called to receive make good use of the opportunity rather than letting it go. There are well-established businesses that can repay both loans. Nevertheless, if your business does not require a huge capital, go for the loan you can repay.
The interesting thing about the N-EXIT CBN Empowerment options is that apart from the financial or monetary aspect, there are also other training that N-Power Applicants will benefit from.

GROUP OF N-EXIT APPLICANTS TO LIKELY GET HIGH CBN LOAN

According to trending N-Power News online, there is no doubt that the disbursement of N-EXIT loan might be categorized according to the applicants information on the N-EXIT portal. There are 4 Categories of Nexit Applicants, the ones who have established their business and registered the business with CAC after the N-Power program, the ones who have established business but yet to register with CAC, we also have the once who have not established any business but are willing to start a business. The final category of N-EXIT Applicants is the ones who are not interested in anything other than permanency (Government work).
Whichever category you fall in, we believe there will be a space for every Applicant in the Nexit CBN Empowerment options according to your preference, since the N-EXIT portal will help determine the suitability of the beneficiaries for the CBN affiliated programs and is dependent on their meeting the criteria and conditions set by the CBN for the said programs.
Before the N-EXIT Programme was initiated, the honorable Minister of Humanitarian affairs Sadiya Umar Farouq said that 109,000 among the 500,000 beneficiaries have gone to become business owners and some are already employers of labour. These 109,000 are the typical example of N-EXIT Applicants that fall in category 1 and 2 and may likely get high loan amounts to grow their business. So also those in other Category who meet CBN Requirements. The N-EXIT portal which was developed and launched by FMHDSD in collaboration with the CBN will enable exited N-Power beneficiaries to log on and apply for the various economic, empowerment & entrepreneurship options provided by the apex bank. Interested N-Power exited beneficiaries should open the Link For N-Power CBN NEXIT Empowerment Portal for more information.
According to Federal Government, the N-EXIT Applicants will have the opportunity for CBN economic empowerment and entrepreneurship options such as the AGSMEIS loan & the Anchor Borrowers Program (ABP).
