The Nigerian government has sacked 2,525 beneficiaries of its N-Power programme for absconding from their primary places of assignment (PPA) across the country.

The Communications Manager of the National Social Investment, Justice Bibiye, in a statement he signed on Wednesday, said the decision followed “reports that some beneficiaries stayed away for long periods of time from their primary places of assignment.”

Mr Bibiye also said that 18,674 other beneficiaries of the initiative have voluntarily resigned, having secured permanent employment.

“So far, 2,525 beneficiaries have been delisted, following reports garnered from the various avenues, whilst 18,674 have voluntarily resigned, having secured permanent employment, $ he said.
