This is to inform the general public that the Federal government of Nigeria has increased the beneficiaries of the N-Power programme from 500,000 to 100000.
Sadiya Farouq, the minister of Humanitarian Affairs, disclosed this on Monday during a ministerial press briefing. Farouq said the increase is inline with the president’s plan to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in the next ten years.
“The purpose of this gathering is to acquaint the Nigerian general public with the activities and programme of the ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, disaster management and Social Development since inception. There is no better time that validates the creation of the ministry as now” she said.
The ministry as at these times of emergencies and national need, relentlessly led efforts in the implementation of a series of coordinated interventions targeted specially to ease the burden of vulnerable socio-economic segments of the country, before, and during COVID-19 lockdown.
