NewsOnline Nigeria reports that the applicants of the N-Power Batch C 2020 Recruitment are curious to know the next step of the onboarding process of the new set of beneficiaries.


This online news medium earlier reported that Sadiya Farouq, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development of Nigeria, restated that her ministry received over 5 million applications in well over one month.


1, 000, 000 successful enrollees will be selected from the final application pool, AllNews understands.


“The N-Power Batch C application portal closed on Sunday, August 9, 2020, after receiving over 5m applications. As we embark on the review process, efforts are in high gear to clear the stipends for Batch A and B before onboarding the new set of beneficiaries,” Farouq, had said in a tweet on her verified handle.


Also, Farouq in August stated at the grand finale of events in commemoration of her ministry’s first year anniversary, in Abuja, the Nigerian capital city, that the ministry of Humanitarian Affairs ‘will ensure due diligence will be applied to ensure that only duly qualified applicants are enrolled for N-Power Batch C during the selection stage’.


“We have successfully exited the 500,000 Batch A and B beneficiaries and closed registration for Batch C with a total of 5,042,001 registrations received.


“As we move to the selection stage, the Ministry will ensure due diligence will be applied to ensure that only duly qualified applicants are enrolled,” Farouq had said.

While the Federal Ministry Of Youth And Sports Development hinted that the enrollment of the Batch C N-Power beneficiaries will transpire in November 2020, this online news medium can authoritatively report that it didn’t happen. This is December.
