The Honorable Minister of the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq has hinted on the modalities and adjustment that will accompany the launch of Npower Batch C on the National Social Investment Management System (NASIMS).
She stated that the Npower started as an intervention for job creation. She says the Npower Batch C is a continuation of the ongoing strategy and an extension of the Buhari administration’s commitment to job creation and youth development.
She says further that based on the implementation of these SIPs since 2016, the programmes are undergoing restructuring to maximize their impact and deliver more socioeconomic benefits to the poor and vulnerable in the society.
The Npower programme provides young Nigerians with job opportunities. It provided opportunities to over 500,000 Nigerians. In view of this, President Buhari approved the extension of the programme to 1 million new beneficiaries; 500,000 per stream.
The Npower Batch C programme will now be administered through the National Social Investment Management System, NASIMS which cuts across the whole value change of other programmes under the ministry.
The Npower Batch C programme is now positioned to be more strategic through NASIMS. Beneficiaries will now be able to get more from programmes, and experience a seamless verification process as well as an efficient transition and exit management plan through the National Social Investment Management System, NASIMS.
The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development under the leadership of Sadiya Farouq, has taken stringent steps to ensure that the registration and verification as well as the on-boarding process will be carried out online and on a centralized system.
