The Federal Government of Nigeria has revealed that all N-Power beneficiaries will be serving for less than two years.
This was revealed Federal Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq.
According to her, the move has become necessary and it was part of a restructuring process the government is undertaking to make the programme more efficient.
Her statement comes after there were widespread reports that the government will be absorbing all N-Power beneficiaries in the civil service.
In her submission, she said;
“Part of the reforms and streamlining will see a reduction in tenure, launch of the Integrated National Social Investment Programme which is intended to reposition N-SIP to cater to vulnerable groups in society by providing them access to shock responsive interventions, life skills & mentorship in order to systematically lift people out of poverty.”
