It would be recalled that at a Press Briefing on the 2nd of December, Farouq had revealed that her ministry is currently engaging the NSIP Cluster Heads for clarifications; in essence, the Handover and Taking process for these two programmes is still ongoing.
It also added that it has been working on a transition program for those that are progressing out of the N-Power — after their 24 months in the scheme have elapsed.
Alongside this, “we are preparing to receive a new intake of participants in the program, who will then participate for 24 months before transitioning on to greater things”, FMHDSD divulged.
