N-Power grantees apply to FG for start-up loan 18 months after discharge | The Guardian Nigeria News

Beneficiaries of the Federal Government’s Social Investment Program (SIP) in Bauchi State have appealed to the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Dr. Sadiya Umar Farouq to take the promise of a boot program for exited participants.

The head of N-Power beneficiaries in the state, Salihu Umar, said yesterday that they appreciated the government’s efforts to allow them to volunteer for more than three years, in addition to training them in March, after which they submitted their business plans.

“It should be recalled that in March 2022, the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, in collaboration with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), organized an entrepreneurial training for the beneficiaries, where participants submitted business plans, with a promise by the government to provide financial support.

“At this juncture, the peaceful and law abiding beneficiaries of N-power in Bauchi State, on behalf of all other beneficiaries in Nigeria, appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, through the Office of the Minister, to fulfill the long-awaited promise of N-power volunteers to become self-reliant.

Umar urged beneficiaries to pray, be optimistic and stay calm while waiting for the government payout.
