FG begins selection of N-Power Batch C applicants

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq on Thursday announced the commencement of the selection process for the N-Power Batch C applicants.

Farouq said the ministry has launched a portal, National Social Investment Management System (NASIMS) for ease of coordination, deployment and management.

According to her, all applicants have been migrated onto the NASIMS platform and would be required to undergo a mandatory online test as part of the selection process.

She added that the Batch C programme will run for 12 months and each beneficiary will be paid a monthly stipend of N30,000.

Reacting to why the selection is just commencing, she said the delay in the entire process was due to the COVID-19 pandemic .

Farouq said: “We have reached another milestone in the process of recruiting and onboarding of the Batch C N-Power beneficiaries beginning with 500,000 beneficiaries. The N-Power Batch C as launched today is structured to onboard one million new beneficiaries, beginning with an initial 500,000 beneficiaries in the first stream, and a subsequent 500,000 in a second stream, all aligned to the National policy drive of lifting 100 million people out of abject poverty in 10 years.

“To ensure transparency, institutional memory and dynamic impact assessment of the N-Power duster, it will now be administered through the National Social Investment & Information Management System (NASIMS) designed to optimise and complement the structural reforms of Social Investment Programs and other activities of the Ministry with the systemic use of ICT tools for coordination, administration, monitoring, and stakeholder management across the entire process and value chain of all social investment programmes under the purview of the Ministry.

“By commencing the administration of the N-Power Batch C through the National Social Investment & Information Management System (NASIMS), beneficiaries will be able to receive their stipends in a timely and efficient manner, have access to a wide range of industry-specific contents for optimised learning experience leveraging the enterprise learning management module of the NASIMS.”
