N-Power Job: Tension As N-Power Reacts To Permanency Campaign, Threatens To Expose, Sack Permanency Campaigners, Other Offenders

N-Power beneficiaries who are leading the campaign for permanency in the civil service at the end of their two-year volunteer period have been advised to desist from such action as those who insist on it will be exposed and sacked from the programme.

 In a statement issued yesterday Thursday December 7, 2017 through it social media handles, the scheme, in what appears to be its first official response to the call by existing beneficiaries for permanency in civil service at the end of the programme, described the call as disheartening and urge those involved to desist from such action.

There have been calls by the 2016 N-Power beneficiaries to be given a permanency status in the civil service at the completion of their two-year volunteer period.

But N-Power is insisting that the programme is designed to enhance the employability of the graduates, as well as a direct response to the concerns raised about the employability of the Nigerian graduate. 

The statement read "Unemployment has been a cause of concern in Nigeria. Despite the rate of unemployment, many employers have raised concerns about the employability of the Nigerian graduate.

"N-Power NG among other things was created to address the root cause of unemployment. It is an emergency intervention for beneficiaries to hone their skiils during the stipulated 24 months, improve their employability status, become entrepreneurs if they so wish and gain experience in the process.

It therefore regretted why some beneficiaries have opted to form groups and launch a campaign for permanency in the civil service.

"It is therefore disheartening to witness existing beneficiaries form groups insisting on making themselves permanent staff. Some beneficiaries in these groups have position themselves as having influence and asked many of the 2017 applicants to pay a fee to them to guarantee their final selection. This is a reprehensible act. The names of these beneficiaries will be published and they will be dismissed from the programme.

It warned existing beneficiaries to conduct themselves in a manner befitting of responsible citizens adding that those who are not comfortable with the nature of the programme are free to quit the so that other interested persons can take their place.
