The Federal Government on Thursday started the selection process for 500,000 Batch C beneficiaries of the N-Power programmer
The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, said one million people would benefit in the current batch of the social investment programme.

“The N-Power Batch C as inaugurated today is structured to onboard one million new beneficiaries, beginning with an initial 500,000 beneficiaries in the first stream.
“A subsequent 500,000 beneficiaries in a second stream, all aligned to the national policy drive of lifting 100 million people out of abject poverty in 10 years.”
The minister announced that all applicants had been migrated onto the NASIMS platform and that they would undergo a mandatory online test as part of the selection process.
