N-Power beneficiaries in Ekiti State have commended President Muhammadu Buhari for engaging many youths in Nigeria through the programme to curtail the rate of youth unemployment in the country.
The President of N-Power beneficiaries in the state, Mr. Darasola Oladimeji, gave the commendation in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, during the one year celebration of the group, describing the president as â€œa man who is on a mission to tackle the poverty rate in Nigeriaâ€.
Oladimeji noted that the initiative has brought hope to many youths by the monthly payment of N30,000 stipend with the provision of electronic devices for the beneficiaries all over the country.
â€œAnother set of beneficiaries were already selected to be part of the great opportunity which will be inducted any moment from now,â€ he said.
The N-Power beneficiaries called on the federal government that at the end of their two-year programme, government should grant them permanent employment or grant them financial award to enable them to set up their own businesses.
