The Npower Management, specifically the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, is making some important changes to the N-Power program. They want to make sure that more people can benefit from it, and they also want to make sure that the payments to the program participants happen on time.
Dr. Betta Edu, who is in charge of this ministry, shared these plans in a statement. She mentioned that they are aware of the problems with late payments to N-Power participants, and they are working to fix this issue. They are going to change how things are done to ensure that people get their payments on time. They also want to include more people in the program and relaunch it with a sense of hope.
Additionally, the ministry has plans to create special centers in all 774 local government areas across the country. These centers will have affordable goods produced locally that can be sold to Nigerians. They will also send their staff to these areas to gather feedback and use digital tracking to make sure that aid is given out transparently and efficiently.
Dr. Edu is committed to fighting poverty in Nigeria through various means, such as creating jobs, giving cash assistance to those in need, supporting small businesses, and improving nutrition programs. She wants to address the humanitarian crisis in Nigeria quickly.
She also mentioned that President Bola Tinubu has some economic plans in place to meet both short-term and long-term goals for the country, and she encourages Nigerians to trust in the process.
