Emmanuel AdigweThe federal government of Nigeria has postponed the ongoing N-Power batch C online application by two weeks.
The programme whose objective is meant to empower Nigerian youths to be productive in the country was extended so that more youths can participate in the scheme.
Gazelle.com reports that the online application process started on June 26, 2020 and was supposed to end on Sunday, July 26, 2020. However, the Government has extended the date.
Sadiya Farouq, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, announced this via her Twitter handle, @Sadiya_farouq on Sunday night.
The tweet reads: “One month after the portal opened for Batch C applications, we are happy to announce that we have received over 5m applications underlining enthusiasm for the programme.
“In a bid to extend the opportunity to all Nigerians and ensure it is truly inclusive, the portal will close at midnight on August 8th, 2020.”
