The Federal Government has said it has fixed no date for the exit of the 2016 Batch A of the N-Power scheme, Concise News understands.
This news medium had reported that there are insinuations in some quarters that the first set of the N-Power beneficiaries will be sacked in August.
However, in a statement, Friday, the Communications Manager, National Social Investment Office (NSIO) Justice Bibiye said no date has been fixed for the exit of the N-Power volunteers.
He, therefore, urged beneficiaries to disregard reports on social media about the planned exit date.
“Consequently, the federal government is already in talks with state governments and the private sector to solicit support for permanent engagement of the N-Power beneficiaries, who by virtue of their exposure to the work environment in the last two years have now garnered the needed experience to effectively operate in the industry,” he added.
He further noted that the government will help the beneficiaries with a sustainable stream of income when they exit the programme.
