The federal government’s empowerment scheme, N-Power, has debunked rumours that it has started receiving applications for 2019.
Concise News understands that there have been reports (not on Concise) that N-Power has started application for 2019.
However, during a Facebook live chat, Afolabi Imoukhuede who is the Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the President on Job Creation and Youth Employment said N-power is not accepting applications.
“Vote massively for Mr. President and you can be sure that after the elections we will re-open the portal,” he added.
It, therefore, urged Nigerians to discard the message as the scheme will inform Nigerians whenever it begins to take applications.
The scheme had also denied reports that it was initiated to garner votes for President Muhammadu Buhari during the presidential election.
This needs to be addressed.
1. N-Power is NOT an enslavement project. It is an empowerment project.
2. No one was mandated.
3. Even with the political season, we expect decent behaviour.
4. We dare you or anyone sir to show proof of anyone who was forced. https://t.co/3t048vWw1G
