Sadiya Farouq, Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, has unveiled a portal for former Npower beneficiaries to apply for Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Empowerment Options.
In a statement by the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Bashir Alkali, the Minister said the new portal will enable exited N-power beneficiaries to log on and apply for the various economic, empowerment and entrepreneurship options provided by the apex bank.
She urged former Npower beneficiaries to visit the site and provide the required additional information for possible placements into the various CBN intervention options.
Sadiya Umar stated that her ministry is committed to the vision of President Muhammadu Buhari to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in the next 10 years.
She said: “The NEXIT portal is to determine the suitability of the beneficiaries for the CBN affiliated programs and is dependent on meeting the criteria and conditions set by the CBN for the said programs.
“The Federal Government of Nigeria is very proud of the milestones you have achieved during your period of service to the nation.
“As we prepare to exit into prospective endeavors, we are confident that you will be able to channel all you have learnt over the years into successful ventures that will improve the economy of the country and create further opportunities for you and other citizens.
“Chasing a dream requires effort, passion and hard work which you are now halfway through. I congratulate you and wish you a very successful future.”
