N-Power Batch C not hijacked’
The Advocates of Social Justice for All has raised an alarm over a plot to blackmail Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Farouq, on the proposed Batch-C of the N-Power scheme.
The Federal Government officially opened the portal for interested applicants into June 2020 Batch C of the N-Power social investment scheme, on Friday, midnight.
Batch A started in September 2016 while Batch B kicked off in August 2018.
Just as thousands of young Nigerians kept vigil to commence registration, it was alleged that the exercise had already been hijacked.
In a statement signed by its National President, Timothy Tiza, in Abuja, ASJA rubbished the claim.
Part of the statement read, “It is indeed a statement of the fact that the Honorable Minister has been transparent in running the affairs of the ministry since assumption of office and the N-Power scheme would not be an exception under any guise. This fact has been attested to by many credible civil society organizations and relevant stakeholders.
“This attempt to malign the character of the Honorable minster is unacceptable. It must be discontinued with immediate effect in the overall interest of the country. It must also be noted that the N-Power scheme is not a money-making venture and it’s not the exclusive preserve of a select few.
“The N-Power Scheme is for the teeming youths in Nigeria, and the Honorable Minister cannot be faulted in any way with regards to expanding the scheme to accommodate more qualified Nigerians.”
