  1. To Mr pres buhari, sir. If I may ask, after the N-power program end what is the next plan for us, are you going to staff us or you are releasing us to go back to the street and start hustle all over? Or how can we start all over againg when we have already tasted monthly salary's payment for two years. Sir, Mr pres buhari. My advice to you and for you to be vote for in 2019 and for most of us not to join militant groups or BSD groups, just give we the N-power volunteers member permanent staff work. Thanks and God bless. We love you sir.
