NCSG Urge to Provide Soft Loans for Those Exiting Npower Programme


NCSG Urge to Provide Soft Loans for Those Exiting Npower Programme: Northern Civil Society Groups, NCSG, has urged the federal government to provide soft loans for beneficiaries of the N-Power initiative who will exit from the program soon.

The group also called on Nigerian youths to fully embrace the N-Power project initiated by the federal government to significantly reduce the pains of unemployment and poverty.

The Civil Society groups expressed delight that the federal government through the Office of the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, has prepared to empower youths at a time of economic crunch caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The statement made available to MEDIANGR.COM.NG explained that the programme which started with 200,000 youths has since been increased to 500,000 overtime. This is a huge number that has surely made a significant impact in assisting these youths by putting food on their table.

The civil society groups also urged the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs to pay attention to people who are already working but still enrolled on the programme, thereby blocking opportunities for other genuine youths who are in dire need to earn a living.

Such people should be prosecuted to serve as lessons to others. Northern Youths have in the past neglected such efforts provided to them by saying this is for those who only know people up there,” the groups emphasized.

They called on the Northern youths to endeavour to apply to the N power programme in other to fill the quota of the 19 Northern states to avoid crying foul that people from other parts of the country have taken their spaces

They also called on Northern political office holders to convert their campaign/constituency offices into registration points by providing free internet facilities to aid easy registration by the youths.

There is a pressing need to loudly speak on the issue frustrating the N-power project, which is that of doublers, stressing that they are those persons who are gainfully employed but still lack the contentment to leave the N-power programme for people who are jobless and in need of urgent help most especially amidst this COVID-19 pandemic.
