What is N-Power?
The Federal Government created the N-Power program to fulfil its social contract with young Nigerians. As a result, measures have been taken to harness Nigeria’s young demography through appropriate skill development efforts to provides them with various opportunities to achieve inclusion and be productive. Large-scale skill development is the main policy thrust of the N-Power Programme.
N-Power is linked to the Federal Government’s policies in the economic, employment and social development arenas. The scheme addresses the challenge of youth unemployment by providing a structure for large scale and relevant work skills acquisition and development while linking outcomes to fixing inadequate public services and stimulating the macroeconomy. The programmes under N-Power will enable participants to learn and practice how to find or create work.
The N-Power Volunteer Corps deploys a mass of trained graduates who will help plug the inadequacies in our public services such as education, health and civic education. Some of these graduates will also help in actualising Nigeria’s economic and strategic aspirations of achieving food security and self-sufficiency.
N-Power is preparing young Nigerians for a knowledge economy where, equipped with world-class skills and certification, they become innovators and movers in the domestic and global markets. The aim is to have a pool of software developers, hardware service professionals, animators, graphic artists, building services professionals, artisans and others. N-Power also provides non-graduates relevant technical and business skills that enhance their work outlook and livelihood.
