The long awaited NPower Recruitment Shortlist has been released and 200,000 applicants have been shortlisted already and indeed we’re so happy to bring that to your notice.

NPower Recruitment Shortlist

The N-Power programme which began its recruitment early this year was supposed to kick start in October as promised by the Federal Government, but due to some setbacks and hiccups in the system, the programme suffered a little delay and is finally set to kick start on 1st December, 2016.

In an announcement made on Sunday by the media aide to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Mr Laolu Akande, two hundred thousand (200,000) graduates have been employed into the N-Power programme and their names can be found on the NPower Recruitment Shortlist and are expected to start work on 1st December, 2016.

The N-Power Volunteer Corps is an expression of the Federal Government’s commitment to invest in the human capital development of Nigerian citizens, particularly our young people.

The N-Power programmme is also an innovative means to enhance ailing public services in the area of basic education and primary healthcare. Also in the agric sector, it is aimed at achieving self-sufficiency by giving our farmers relevant advisory services.

While making the announcement, Mr. Akande said that 200,000 applicants had been selected on the NPower Recruitment Shortlist about two weeks ago and that their names have now been sent to state governments and the FCT who would deploy them to their specific programme assignments.

Talking about the NPower Recruitment Shortlist which has 200,000 names on it, Mr. Akande went further to say,

The names of the NPower Recruitment Shortlist would also be published this week on the N-Power internet portal, while the participants would start receiving SMS messages informing them of their selection as from Monday November 21, 2016

State governments and the FCT are also encouraged to post the names of the successful first batch applicants in their local government areas while there would be further public announcements.

Between now and the end of the month, the states and the FCT would be engaged in deploying the graduates who would formally start working and earning their stipends on December 1, 2016.

While breaking down the NPower Recruitment Shortlist of 200,000 employed applicants, Mr Akande said that,

Of the 200,000 first batch, 150,000 of them would teach, 30,000 would work in the Agric sector and 20,000 in Healthcare delivery covering the three specific programme assignments.

Participants will be provided teaching, instructional, and advisory solutions in 4 main focus areas, and will be paid a monthly stipend of N30,000 during the programme. The 4 main focus areas are in basic education, agriculture extension services, public health and community education (civic and adult education).

Besides the N-Power programme for undergraduates, there are other schemes for non-graduates. These are: N-Power Knowledge, which would select 25,000 young Nigerians and NPower Build 75,000, all of whom shall be trained and paid during the duration of the scheme.

Mr. Akande also addressed those who may not see their name on the NPower Recruitment Shortlist at this time, he said

For those who have not been selected at this time, there is a waiting list based on the total number of applicants, and subsequent batches will absorb more of the qualified applicants.

All together, the N-Power will engage and train 500,000 young unemployed graduates. It is a paid volunteering programme of a 2-year duration that engages graduates in their immediate communities, where they will assist in improving the inadequacies in the education, health, and agriculture sectors.

The 500,000 graduates under the NPower Corps programme will be trained in skills that will enable them exit after two years to economically viable job and business opportunities.

As part of the programme, the participants whose name appeared on the NPower Recruitment Shortlist would own tablets that will contain information necessary for their specific engagements, as well as information for their continuous training and developments.

Explaining the criteria used in selecting the applicants, spokesman to the Vice President, Mr. Laolu Akande said that the details of the allocation to states would be made public in a matter of time.

However he made this known,

There are three criteria. Number one is the number of applications that come from each state. Forty per cent of the number selected was based on the shared number of application per state.

We gave additional numbers to the states in the North-East and then the final consideration is for the state that has least number of applicants.

The states where there were not enough applicants, in order to encourage such states, we had to give them additional mark up.

The numbers are not equal. You are going to have different numbers per state because we thought that these criteria were in fairness to the circumstances especially when you consider the shared number of states, the north east situation and the states that have least number of applicants.
