Abuja chapter of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) has said the federal government’s N-Power scheme has failed to achieve its objectives.
A statement by ALGON on Wednesday expressed the union’s dissatisfaction with the ongoing screening exercise of successful applicants across the six area councils.
According to the body, the scheme has failed to capture FCT natives across the six area councils.
“It’s important to note that, the idea of setting up the scheme is to help reduce unemployment at the grassroots level nationwide. But in our own case here in FCT, it is a different ball game,” the statement said.
The FCT ALGON alleged that 80 percent of those captured in the scheme are people from other states.
