Also speaking, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, represented by the Permanent Secretary, Ifeoma Anyanwutaku, said since inception, the N-Power had been a tool to curb youth restiveness.

“It avails the Nigerian youths the opportunity to acquire skills, to enhance their lives, and even create employment for others.

”I have no doubt that the lessons learnt in the Batch A and B would be brought to bear in the Batch C, to achieve President Muhammadu’s Buhari vision of lifting 100 million Nigerians out of poverty.

“My Ministry is poised to contribute its quota to the success of the programme via public awareness and other interventions,” Mr Mohammed said.

Meanwhile, the National Coordinator of the NSIP, Umar Bindir, says since 1960, the different poverty alleviation programmes of the Federal Government had remained only at a programme level.

“But, President Buhari thought it wise to have a full fledged ministry to effectively address poverty, so as not to repeat the mistakes of the past. He also institutionalized the NSIP in 2016.

“The NSIP have components such as N-Power, National Home Grown School Feeding Programme, Government Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Programme and Conditional Cash Transfer.
