The federal government,Monday,flagged off the commencement of N-Power Batch C across the country,with 510 enrollees participating in the stream 1 of the youth empowerment scheme.
Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq,who flagged off the event in Abuja,said another 490 enrollees would be engaged in the Batch C,stream 2 to be flagged off at a later date.
While, explaining that N-Power volunteer (graduates) were entitled to a monthly stipend of N30,000 for a period of one year,she said non-graduate beneficiaries were entitled to N10,000.000 monthly stipends for a period of 9 months under the Batch C.
”All bebeficiaries are granted an appropriate starter pack for their trade to enable them start their businesses in their chosen trades,” she added.
She spoke further: ”The N-Power programme deployes an online application and selection strategy to ensures fairness, transparency and credibility in the recruitment process.
“The programme commenced in the Office of the Vice President back in June 2016 when the application portal was first opened. Over 750,000 applications were received, out of which, 200,000 beneficiaries were screened and selected into the first batch called Batch A.
“The portal was opened again in June 2017 where over 2.5 million applications were received, from which another 300,000 volunteers were selected into the programme as Batch B.
“Permit me at this juncture to thank His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari for his administration’s unwavering efforts in eradicating poverty in our country and for supporting and sustaining the National Social Investment Programme. With the creation of the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and the relocation of the NSIP from the OVP to the Ministry, it is worthy to note that Mr. President recognized the creativity and impact of the NPower and has graciously approved the expansion of the programme from 500,000 to 1,000,000 beneficiaries, to enable more young people to benefit.
“Based on this approval, the portal was again opened in June 2020, and over 6 million new applications were recieved. 1,000,000 beneficiaries will be mined from this as the NPower Batch C. The batch C is divided into 2 streams. Stream C1 of 510,000 beneficiaries and stream C2 for 490,000 beneficiaries. Under the Batch C1, a total of 450,000 have been selected to benefit under the graduate component, while 60,000 beneficiries will be non-graduate beneficiaries.”
Farouq assured that ”Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development is committed to ensuring that the strategic objectives of all the Social Intervention Programmes are achieved.”
“Some innovations have been introduced into the N-Power selection and payment processes such as the creation of the National Social Investment Management Systems (NASIMS), partnership with key MDAs including the NYSC, the UBEC, the NPHCDA, the NOA to mention but a few, with which the Ministry is leveraging to effectively implement its interventions.
To ensure that the challenges of communication is addressed, most particularly as it relates to limitations on information flow and internet access across the country and in a bid to provide accessibility to all target programme applicants and beneficiaries, the Ministry has concluded to provide access to information via a USSD code.
In line with the above, the USSD short code *45665# has been secured via integration to provide the required connectivity and technical support for the provision of information services to our beneficiaries,” she further said.

Npower: What does Payment ID Pay/08/11/202100000001 Means?
Some hours ago nasims.gov.ng via their social media page announced that the N-Power portal was under maintenance. Naija News is happy to inform all beneficiaries that the portal is back accessible but with a new update.
Therefore if you are an Npower Batch C volunteer and on checking your payroll tab you saw the payment ID Pay/08/11/202100000001.
This actually means you were paid exactly on the 8th November, 2021, the first part of the ID “pay”, means payment had been effected, the “08” actually shows the day of payment, while the “11” shows the month of payment, while the “202100000001” shows the year of payment, while the 1 at the end denotes the batch, in this case Batch C1.
If your payment shows pending you have been paid just exercise patience as the delay is actually from your deposit bank, and might be due to bulk payment glitch from NIBSS Nigeria Inter Bank Settlement Scheme.
