Dubbed as the largest post-tertiary employment programme in Africa, the Muhammadu Buhari government sees the N-Power scheme as one of its major achievements.
Beneficiaries do not need high-wire connections as the screening process was largely transparent and efficient.
Headquartered under the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, N-Teach is the most popular of the N-SIP, which also focuses on health, agriculture and public finance.
Due to the deficiency in the number of teaching staff in public schools, many “unemployed graduates” were deployed to schools in order to complement the efforts of the staff on ground.
In 2016 when the N-Power programme started, 200,000 beneficiaries were selected and deployed to their Primary Place of Assignment (PPA) out of about 700,000 Nigerian graduates who reportedly applied.
Two batches have been recruited since the launch of the programme in 2016.
