2016 N-Power Leadership Meet, Rejects Exit Package, Insist on Permanency



Leadership of the 2016 beneficiaries of the Federal Government youth empowerment scheme, N-Power on Wednesday convened a meeting to evaluate some issues related to their demand for permanency in civil service.

CNR Nigeria had earlier reported that 2016 N-Power leadership group will meet to evaluate the issues raised by a top N-Power official, Afolabi Imoukhuede regarding government position on their agitation to be converted into the permanent staff of federal civil service at the expiration of their two-year period in the scheme.

The group who met at an undisclosed location in Lagos comprised of 3 representatives from each state of the federation and agreed to be known and addressed as 'G-111 for Permanency'.

In a communiqué issued at end of the one-day meeting in Lagos and signed by its President, Abdulwaheed Ahmed,  its Publicity Secretary, Bolanle Abiodun, and National Secretary, Uchenna Ogaranya, the group said it had reviewed the position of the Federal Government on their agitation as represented by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Job Creation, Afolabi Imoukhuede during a recent Facebook live chat.

It said that though the programme was originally scheduled to accommodate beneficiaries for a stated period of two years, it has prepared and equip beneficiaries with relevant and useful skills as the most qualified people to fill the numerous vacant positions occasioned by increasingly inadequate staff in their respective PPAs.

"We are aware that the Federal Government N-Power programme has a defined period of time it can accommodate beneficiaries. However, it is our considered position that since beneficiaries have within their stay in the scheme learn enormous skills and competence to provide quality service in teaching, healthcare, and agriculture sectors, they have qualified to be absorbed into the system currently suffering from acute staff shortage.

"Beneficiaries who teach in our primary and secondary schools across the country will attest to the fact that pupils and student are not happy about losing their teachers who have effectively impacted them with knowledge through out their fruitful stay in the schools. The story is the same in our Primary Heath Centres and Agric Extension offices in every Local Government of the Federation.


"We maintain our carefully considered view that it is only by absorbing the 2016 beneficiaries that their good work and excellent performances can be consolidated and sustained. Throwing them back into the streets to start roaming for unavailable job will amount to the greatest disservice any responsible and people-oriented government can do to the citizens.

"The Federal Government, under the able leadership of our amiable President Mohammadu Buhari and his Deputy, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo must pay deserving attention to our demand and act accordingly because if we lose, Nigeria and Nigerians lose; alternately, our conversion will mean great victory for both the APC-led Federal Government and the good people of Nigeria.

"For now, we are not interested in the proposed exit package as hinted by Mr. Afolabi Imoukhuede as it is not clear to us what the idea is all about. Exit Package in whatever form or guess, can only benefit us individually but Permanency will service Nigerians.

"We have no intention of taking any form of mass action against a government that have benefitted us so much. Our agitation remains peaceful and persuasive; and based on reason, facts and figures.

"We enjoin our members in all the 36 States and the FCT to continue announcing it to all relevant authorities in the land, the very need to retain us in the federal civil service. We appreciate all who have been writing open letters to the relevant authorities as well as those who have been publishing well written articles online. Our pillar is God Almighty and we shall give Him praise at last", the communiqué read.

  1. Every responsible government that have her citizens a future plan can't and will not allow this kind of program to just go in the way they are trying to do.
    should we go home to be roaming the street again? Oh my God ,what types of humans do we have in the government system , must everything be politicized, what does it take the FG to give us this job for God sake. Please keep that packaged and reinstate us ,who are to be Working in most schools where there are no staffs, those that are retired and still retiring, those that died, yet their names still on pay roll. What kind of government are we even running. Permanency is our request . Please MR vice president we are counting on you as an echelons in education system ,let the right thing be done.

  10. I join all well meaning Nigerians and those that see the future of our y ourths as a paramount thing in the social,economical,political and moral sustainability of this country to give permanent and pensionable appointments to NPOWER beneficiaries. This will be a big plus to thisfederal govt.and posterity will be fare to the present leaders.Provision of 500000 jobs was one of the campaign promises of this administration so let them be noble enough to keep to the promise on job creation.

  18. Are there vacancies in the Federal civil or public service to absorb such huge number of volunteers? I doubt it! Why not embrace an exit package in cash for each volunteer, to grow a personal and self independent business which in turn will translate to entrepreneurial development?

  19. On behalf of myself and the entire npower 2016 batch, we appreciate the efforts of our dear president Muhammadu Buhari and his Vp yemi osibajo for helping Nigerian youths who have no body but as a result of transparency they were able to benefit from the npower program.

  25. jOur noble President and our esteem Vice President:Competency,honesty and sincerity is what brought you to the present administration at a transition for the great country to collapse.N POWER 2016 should be considered,a pillar for protecting our great Nation from collapsing as youth considered to be the backbone of the development of every Nation.Our little effort woulb be detected through our various PPA's,our impacts would be seen there.Mr President and all those responsible,we are begging for permanency as a needs for our life sustainability not even a wants.We have confidence in you as we applied for NPOWER 2016 with nothing,without knowing anybody and without knowing any influencial person in the country.But,GOD in his abundant blessings brought us to the end of an infinite,painful and hardship situation of unemployment.The Nigerian delicacy is producing some Aroma but yet not done,will be completely done by absorbing the NPOWEERS.LONG LIVE our dear Muhammad Buhari and Osibanjo.
