Recall that despite threats of dismissal by N-Power managers against any volunteers found to engage in permanency campaign, existing volunteers have defied the threat, calling on concerned stakeholders to absorb them into the civil service at the completion of their two-year contract period in the scheme.

First set of N-Power beneficiaries who were recruited in 2016 will leave the programme by November 2018 which will mark the end of their two years in the scheme.
