Some beneficiaries of the Nigerian government empowerment programme N-Power on Tuesday protested at the Lagos Television, Alausa, Lagos State.

The aggrieved beneficiaries accused the Lagos State Government of ignoring them in its recruitment processes.

“We have volunteered for them for like three years and there is a lot of recruitment going on and we have not been considered at all,” Ayo Opeyemi, a beneficiary of N-Agro and one of the coordinators of N-power beneficiaries in Lagos State, told The Guardian.

“Federal government has done its part, paying us for like three years but our work benefits the state.”
