Nigerians have taken to social media platforms to express their views on the alleged plans by the Federal Government of Nigeria to phase out the first batch of N-Power beneficiaries.

Should the government proceed with the plans as indicated, 200,000 beneficiaries who came onboard the scheme in 2016 will be shown the exit door.

This online platform understands that the disengagement will take place between January and February this year as there was no budgetary provision for them in the 2020 national budget.

The N-Power scheme was introduced in 2016 by President Muhammadu Buhari, as a two-year social investment scheme for graduate and non-graduate Nigerians between the ages of 18-35.

The beneficiaries enjoy N30, 000 monthly stipend, and devices during the duration of their stay in the scheme.

See reactions on Twitter:

Back in 2019, reports had it that the federal government of Nigeria had assured the first set of beneficiaries under the N-Power scheme that it was liaising with state governments and the private sector on the possibility of securing permanent engagement for the 2016 N-Power beneficiaries.

The government made this known when he revealed that no date has been announced for the exit of the first batch of volunteers enrolled under the N-Power scheme.
