5 Things That Might Happen When Npower Program Is Rejigged
As the current set of Npower beneficiaries’ terms come to an end by October 2023, several changes and developments are anticipated:
- The new Npower Management might exit batch B and clear their outstanding stipend payment.
- The New Npower management might begin recruiting a new batch of 2023 Npower volunteers.
- The stipend payment for Npower beneficiaries might be reviewed upward or downward to engage more beneficiaries.
- The agency under the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation overseeing the Npower programme and other NSIP Programme is the National Social Investment Programme Agency (NSIPA), managed by Mrs. Bulus.
- Since the new Administration is focusing on creating jobs through the digital economy, the Npower management might try to engage more Npower beneficiaries in that path.
At this stage, Npower beneficiaries are advised to be patient as the Ministry is rejiggering the programs under NSIP, to which Npower belongs. Payment might also be reviewed upward or downward to include more people in the programs.
In conclusion, Minister Betta Edu’s commitment to addressing the concerns of Npower beneficiaries and her vision for the program’s future holds promise for both current and prospective participants.
