NIGERIAN GOVT TO EMPLOY 200,000 JOBLESS GRADUATES

All is set for the deployment of 200,000 unemployed graduates selected in the first batch of the Buhari Administration’s plan to hire half a million Nigerians, under the government’s N-Power programme.

While the 200,000 graduates have been selected about two weeks ago, their names have now been sent to state governments and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) which will deploy them to their specific programme assignments.

The names will be published this week on the N-Power Internet portal, while the participants will start receiving SMS messages informing them of their selection beginning Monday, Nov 21, 2016.

State governments and the FCT are also encouraged to post the names of the successful first batch applicants in their local government areas while there will be further public announcements.

Between now and the end of the month, the states and the FCT will be engaged in deploying the graduates who will formally begint working and earning their stipends on Dec 1, 2016.

Of the 200,000 in the first batch, 150,000 of them will teach, 30,000 will work in the agricultural sector and 20,000 in healthcare delivery, covering the three specific programme assignments.

The N-Power Volunteer Corps is an expression of President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to invest in the human capital development of Nigerian citizens, particularly young people.
