The N-Knowledge programme aims to develop the competencies of young people in software development, hardware training, and the creative industry, which will enable Nigeria to compete in the outsourcing market for software development.

Latest Npower News – The N-Knowledge initiative update
The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development has successfully concluded the N-Knowledge initiative, which trained 3,300 individuals in various life skills such as software development, hardware handling, animation, and scriptwriting. These recipients underwent residential training from February 2023 and have now completed their coursework, ready to establish businesses and offer solutions in their communities.
During the closing ceremony of the N-Knowledge Expansion Training, Minister Sadiya Umar Farouq explained that the program’s objective was to equip young Nigerians with the necessary training and qualifications to become competent employees, innovators, and business owners who can excel in both local and global digital job markets. The training was conducted in the Federal Capital Territory and included training camps in the six geopolitical zones.
Npower is a federal government empowerment program designed to provide work experience and skill acquisition opportunities for Nigerian youths. The program pays monthly stipends to beneficiaries who are actively participating in their Place of Primary Assignment (PPA). In this article, we will discuss the latest news regarding the January, February, and March stipends payment for Npower Batch C2 beneficiaries.
NPower December Stipends payment Update
NASIMS has confirmed that all Npower Batch C Stream 2 beneficiaries have been paid their December stipends, except for those with invalid account details who are currently undergoing the account validation exercise.
Payment Update from Npower
As of the time of writing this article, Npower has assured Batch C2 beneficiaries that their January, February, and March stipends will be paid soon. The delay in payment is likely due to the account validation process for beneficiaries with invalid account details. These beneficiaries are currently undergoing validation to receive their stipends from October, November, and December 2022. To learn more about the account validation process and when to receive stipends after validation, check out our article “When To Receive Stipends After Npower Account Validation.”
Avoiding Stipend Payment Hold
It is crucial for beneficiaries to avoid situations that may result in Npower withholding their stipends. One of the ways to avoid stipend payment hold is by actively participating in your Place of Primary Assignment (PPA). Absconding from your PPA can lead to a 45-day payment hold, as discussed in our article “Npower To Place PPA Absentees On Payment Hold For 45 Days.”
