The Federal Government has shortlisted 550,000 applicants for the final selection for Batch C of the N-Power programme.
It also confirmed the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) would support beneficiaries of Batches A and B, who had completed the N-Power programme with soft loans.
The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development Sadiya Farouq, said this at a press briefing on Tuesday.
She said the 550,000 short-listed applicants would be contacted through the e-mail addresses provided by them.
Farouq noted that the applicants had been advised to first check and immediately log on to the NASIMS self-service portal to enrol their biometric data which would lead them to the final selection.
“500,000 will be finally selected nationwide to serve as the first stream of the N-Power Batch C programme. This is the Batch C1. The second batch of another 500,000 will subsequently be made in line with Mr President’s directive to engage 1,000,000 beneficiaries under the Batch C.”
