President Muhammadu Buhari ordered that the volunteers of the 2016/2017 Federal Government?s N-power programme be absorbed into into the federal civil service.

He said since they have worked for a long time as volunteers, it would be kind of the federal government to offer them permanent employment before ending the programme. He made the statement today at the state house abuja.

The N-power Volunteers Scheme is one of the Federal Government's Social Investment Programmes which began in December 2016. It is billed to last for two years according to government.

He said this is a big way cub the unemployment rate in the country instead of dismissing them and they start roaming round the street, he said he is of the view that if the 200,000 youths that were absorbed by the programmes were pushed back to the society after two years, the country cannot claim to be making progress.

He said that there had never been any empowerment or employment process in the history of Nigeria as transparent, direct and merit-oriented as witnessed during the selection of N-power beneficiaries across the country.

He advised government at all levels to adopt N-power method of recruitment in their future empowerment and employment exercises. He said within the 10 months of the programme, it has impacted on lives, reduced poverty, improved livelihood and human capital development of the citizenry.
