The management of the Federal Government empowerment programme Npower has introduced some new rules into the programme as they opened portal for the registration of new set of Volunteers.
The portal www.npower.fmhds.gov.ng which was open around 12am on Saturday contains new duration for the beneficiaries of the federal government’s programme. Under programme on the site, there are 4 main programmes which include 1. N-Agro 2. N-Teach 3. N- Health 4. N- Build, N-Tech and N- Creative
Under the new duration rule, N-Teach programme is now to last for only 12 Months which is 1 year, N-Health is also for 12 Months, while N- Tech, N- Build and N-Agro are now to last for only 6 Months.
Recalled that all the categories of programmes were initially designed to last for 24 months which was 2 years, but the Batch A which started in 2016 has spent more than 3 years already, while the batch B which started in August 2018 will clock 2 years this August.
It is not clear yet whether the stipends of the volunteers will also be reviewed, since the Minster in charge of the programme Ajia Farouq Sadiq has promised to review the entire programme.
