An Overview of Npower Permanency
As an idea borne out of Npower, Npower Permanency implies the provision of permanent job positions (in governmental establishments) to Npower beneficiaries. By and large, Npower Permanency will either offer Npower beneficiaries permanent jobs or equip them with the necessary assistance for establishing their own businesses. While Npower is intended to translate its vision of employability and self-reliance among Nigerian youths into reality, Npower Permanency will likely incorporate permanence into these employability and self-reliance.
You’ll likely have a good deal of interest in Npower Permanency if you are among Npower Batch A and Batch B beneficiaries. Therefore, it should delight you that through the idea of Npower Permanency, Npower will be in partnership with several agencies (at both federal and state levels). Precisely, this partnership will be geared towards equipping Npower beneficiaries with permanent jobs.
By way of Npower Permanency, beneficiaries of the popular Npower scheme will be placed on permanent jobs and will experience a “working environment” for such jobs.
It may be recalled that in 2019, an official announcement by Npower indicated the transition of the programme’s beneficiaries. Notably, the transition would involve the transfer of beneficiaries (from basic Npower job positions) to where they would serve as community police, teachers and so on. Therefore in 2020, Npower was transferred to another ministry not only as a follow-up on that official announcement but also to facilitate the implementation of N-power Nigeria Permanency 2020.
Sadly however, Npower’s transition to a new ministry took a bad toll on Npower beneficiaries, thereby preventing them from receiving stipends over a two-month period.
