The minister of humanitarian affairs, disaster management and social development, who is best known as Sadiya Farouq has publicly disclosed that the number of applications that have visited the N-Power online portal is huge.
The minister made this known via on her official Twitter handle, however, it was just 16 days after the announcement of the portal opened and do you know what happened? Not less than 4.48 million citizens have applied and there are still plenty citizens to apply apart from the disclosed 4.48m on ground.
The minister added that only 400,000 applicants will be absorbed into the third batch of the National Social Investment Scheme (NSIP) at the end of the recruitment exercise.
The amiable minister had also made another revelation on twitter saying “My team and I continue to interface with stakeholders to ensure a successful transition for the @npower_ng.
“It has been 16 days since the portal opened and we have received 4.48 million applications to date.”
“So, these are the administrative issues that have hindered the payment of some of the volunteers. There are about 12,000 of them based on our record and as I am speaking with you, the permanent secretary of the ministry is in the office of the accountant general to sort out these issues and once we get the report, we will make it available to all,” she said.
Meanwhile some of the citizens who were employed under the platform of N-power are happy and remain grateful to the ministry of N-power. Perhaps, some of which ask government to pay them for the previous month before anything else.
