The President Muhammadu Buhari-led youth empowerment scheme, N-Power, is set to release tablet devices to beneficiaries to aid them in the process of learning and working in the course of the duties.
Recall that the 2016 batch were asked to select devices, and right now the Afrione device of the N-Power scheme has landed for collection. Other devices are gradually arriving as the scheme plans to start disbursement from July 15.
N-Power is a Federal Government initiative intended to provide young graduates and non-graduates alike with skills and enablement for livelihood so as to transition them from unemployed to resourceful, entrepreneurial and innovative youths.
Participants will provide teaching, instructional, and advisory solutions in 4 key areas (N-Power Agro, N-Power Health, N-Power Teach, N-Power Vaids).
See below the date of collection of the N-Power devices:
Afri-One (2-in 1): July 15th
RLG Adulawo Limited: July 21st
Samsung Tab E: July 27th
Zinox Z Pad: July 27th
Brain NPower IPAD: August 15th
Techno Pad: August 31st
Floss Signatures: July 27th
Speedstar: August 31st.
Requirement for collection of N-Power Device
Beneficiaries will have to present means of identification uploaded on the N-Power online profile.
Other requirement for the collection are the payment history print out in your NPVN portal; print out of your profile face showing your passport and Id card you uploaded; the valid identity card you uploaded at your NPVN profile; email that will be sent to you.
Note: The N-power gadgets are devices to assist the successful applicants (N-power Volunteers) in the discharge of their duties.
To check the device you picked during the time of application, login to your NPVN portal, what you will see at your portal homepage beside the N-Power Verified Logo is ‘Click Here To See Device Selected’. If you click on it, you’ll see the device you earlier selected.
Through the N- Power Volunteering Corps programme, the government’s commitment to the improvement of quality of lives, reduction in income inequality and tackling of the deficiencies in public services will be actualized.
Currently the N-Power registration and assessment test is ongoing.
The registration portal will close on July 27 while the test for all participants will be completed by August 31. [SEE full Timetable here]
One basic post-registration procedure is to wait for SMS validation of BVN so that the participant can log in to the portal with phone number and BVN to write the test.
Recall that participants are having difficulties in login in to the portal because of the rigorous steps adopted by the scheme in validating BVN so as to forestall challenges of non-payment of stipends faced in the previous batch occasioned by discrepancies in bank details. So participants have been urged to exercise patience.
The N-Power Volunteer Corps will engage and train 500,000 unemployed young Nigerians.
