The management of Npower has clarified that the Work Nation programme which is an exit plan for batch C Stream 2 beneficiaries is optional and a personal choice, NASIM stated in a response message to inquiries.
It would be recalled that NASIM which is the management platform for all social intervention programmes of the federal government had earlier advised concerned beneficiaries to take advantage of the exit programme.
Work Nation aims to train and bring beneficiaries closer to job opportunities around the globe. Although intending participants are expected to take and pass the eligibility test.
The programme which was designed in collaboration with the federal government through the ministry of Humanitarian Affairs will match disengage Npower beneficiaries to various opportunities in the national and international job market.
A check on the program website shows a list of available opportunities including customer service, business analysis, sales management, accounting, engineering, and data analysis.
Others are constriction, human resources, full stack development and administrative assistance.
Meanwhile, NASIM has advised interested applicants for the Work Nation programme to take their eligibility test through their Npower Dashboard noting that anything besides that can lead to missing information.
A message by NASIM which was sighted by Investors King partly read: “Do not access the WORKNATION site directly via their site address as your personal information might be missing”.
Established in 2016, Npower is one of the social intervention programmes of the present administration to address youth unemployment.
Ever since its establishment, it has engaged millions of Nigerian youth between the age of 18 and 35 in various categories of N-Teach, N-Health, N-Agro, N-Build, N-Creative and N-Tech and N-Health.
In September 2022, the Federal Executive Council (FEC) approved the National Social Investment Programme (Establishment) Bill to give legal backing to all the government’s social intervention programmes.
The bill will ensure the continuity of Npower and other intervention programmes if passed to law by the National Assembly and subsequently signed by the president.

Kidnapping Spree Hits Northern Nigeria: Eight Abducted in Dan Honu Attack
Gunmen targeted the Dan Honu community in Nigeria’s northern Kaduna state, abducting at least eight people in the latest incident of kidnapping for ransom in the region.
This form of criminal activity has become increasingly prevalent in northwest Nigeria, where armed gangs, locally known as bandits, have been wreaking havoc, targeting schools, villages, and travelers.
As a result, it has become perilous to travel by road or engage in farming activities in certain areas.
The attack occurred late on Tuesday in the Chikum local government area of Kaduna state. While the police are actively investigating the incident, residents shared harrowing experiences.
Mohammed Danjuma, a resident who narrowly escaped the abduction, reported that approximately 16 people were taken, but eight managed to evade capture.
During the attack, a vigilant member of the community fired a shot into the air, creating enough disturbance to unsettle the bandits, who subsequently left.
Malam Suleiman, another resident who was initially kidnapped, seized an opportunity to escape while being led into the bushes. Unfortunately, his teenage sons were among those taken by the assailants.
These incidents add to the pervasive insecurity in Nigeria, which includes a longstanding 14-year Islamist insurgency in the northeast and ongoing deadly clashes between farmers and herders in the central region.
Authorities are grappling with the multifaceted challenges posed by these security threats, seeking comprehensive solutions to safeguard the well-being of the population.
