The Ministry stressed that the cry for permanency of batches A& B has been so loud but FG can’t give them permanent jobs because “right from the programme design and application process, the duration of the programme is made known to interested persons. Government is to create an enabling environment for youth to build capacity and gain experience through Social Protection programme like N-power and not employing permanently over 500,000 in its payroll. “

Recall that on September, 22, Business Compiler reported that the Minister of Humanitarian Affair, Sadiya Umar Farouk, while speaking at Chatham House said that training for the exited volunteers will commence by October.
