Batch C affords us an opportunity to enrol a new set of beneficiaries who will be upskilled to prepare them for employability or entrepreneurship. It also offers us a pipeline of skilled workers who will be critical to jump starting the economy post-Covid-19
Out of the 500,000 beneficiaries enrolled in Batch A & B, about 109,823 have proceeded to establish businesses in their communities underlining the impact and imperative of @npower_ng programme.
I want to thank the outgoing beneficiaries of Batch A & B for their service. They have been worthy ambassadors of #NSIP and I look forward to many of them impacting the economy in positive ways.
As the Batch C application and enrolment continues, I look forward to more success stories of positive impact from young men and women who remain the hope and future of this country.
