The Federal Government has said no date has been announced for the exit of the first batch of volunteers enrolled under its Social Programme, N-Power.

Mr. Justice Bibiye, who is the communications manager, National Social Investment (NSIO), in a statement on Friday, urged the public to disregard social media reports about current status of the programme.

He said that the federal government was liaising with state governments and the private sector to provide permanent engagement for the N-Power beneficiaries.

Bibiye also said many beneficiaries had already started taking ownership of their lives by setting up small businesses with earnings from the N-power programme.

“Consequently, the federal government is already in talks with state governments and the private sector to solicit support for permanent engagement of the N-Power beneficiaries, who by virtue of their exposure to the environment in the last two years have now garnered the needed experience to effectively operate in the industry,” he added.

The communications manager further said that the former special adviser to the on social investment, Maryam Uwais, has inaugurated the National Home Grown Feeding Programme in Bayelsa state.

He said the Uwais also intimated N-power beneficiaries of plans by government to assist them get a sustainable means of income as they prepared to exit the programme.

Bibiye said that Uwais also used the opportunity to encourage state governments to retain volunteers who provided services in and other public and private institutions in their states.

“Uwais was joined by Bayelsa government officials to ramp up on some ongoing social intervention programmes, including Marketmoni, Tradermoni.

“She also met with the Conditional Cash Transfer officials and beneficiaries in the state saying that the Federal Government through partnerships with some key private sector players is looking out for employment opportunities in the areas of , ICT, Agriculture, Security among others for the graduating N-power volunteers,’’ Bibiye said.

Introduced in 2016 by President Muhammadu Buhari, the N-power Programme, is a graduate and non-graduate enhancement scheme.

The objective is to enable them acquire the requisite skills, knowledge and experience for entrepreneurship and self-sufficiency at the culmination of their tenure on the programme.

The N-Power beneficiaries are then provided with N30, 000 monthly stipend and devices to aid their learning and skills development.

Buhari reacts as Punch changes President’s title to ‘Major General 20191211 153334

The Presidency has reacted to the decision by Punch Newspaper to henceforth refer to Muhammadu as General .

In a notice titled “Buhari’s lawlessness: Our Stand”, Punch stated that it will “henceforth prefix Buhari’s name with his rank as a military dictator in the 80s ‘Major General’ and refer to his administration as a regime until they purge themselves of their insufferable contempt for the rule of law.

The newspaper made the decision while making reference to DSS non-compliance to court orders on trial of Omoyele Sowore, publisher of SaharaReporters; invasion of courtroom and trial of Shiites’ leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky amongst others.

Punch said its decision shows its protest against autocracy and military-style repression under Buhari’s administration.

However, in reaction to Punch’s decision, Femi Adesina, a Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, said the newspaper’s decision to call Buhari ‘Major General’ is not out of order.

Adesina on his Twitter page @FemiAdesina added that Buhari has earned the rank ‘Major General’

According to him, Punch’s publication is proof of press freedom under Buhari’s administration.

Adesina wrote: “If you decide to call him Major General, he wasn’t dashed the rank, he earned it. So, you are not completely out of order.

“The fact that you can do so is even another testimony to press freedom in Nigeria.”
