N-Power offers N37 million to beneficiaries across Nigeria
One of the social intervention programmes of the Nigerian government, N-Power, has announced its Impact Series competition, which offers one beneficiary in each state and the federal capital territory one Million Naira.
In a series of tweets on its Twitter page, the programme, under which 500,000 graduates have so far been recruited, said the competition was birthed to reward the scheme’s volunteers.
“This competition is a reward package for outstanding N-Power volunteers who have impacted their communities,” N-Power tweeted.
“All you have to do is upload a video talking about how N-Power has impacted your life and your community.”
The scheme disclosed that the competition will commence on Tuesday, November 13th at 11:00pm.
It is, however, unclear how the winner would be determined.
The scheme also cleared that the impact series competition is different from the N-Power Enhancement which has earlier been announced.
On October 19, The Guardian reported that the Nigerian government announced a ‘big plan’ for some beneficiaries of the social intervention programme.
The federal government in a communique revealed that it is set for an enhancement programme for the 2016 N-power programme beneficiaries.
“The 2016 beneficiaries will proceed into an enhancement programme as you continue to give your service and earn your monthly stipend,” the statement reads.
The federal government noted that “the details of the N-Power Enhance will gladden” the hearts of the beneficiaries.
Although the statement did not indicate when the enhancement programme will start, it, however, hinted that the enhancement plan is a “multi-sector, multilayered and multi-pronged” one.
