Batch C applicants of the N-Power programme have lamented delay in releasing names of the shortlisted candidates for intake into the scheme.
Recall that following the disengagement of batch A and B of beneficiaries of the N-power in June and July, 2020 respectively, the federal government said it would enroll a new batch C starting from July 26, 2020.
But as applicants continue to wait anxiously without any development, some of them in separate interviews with LEADERSHIP lamented the delay in releasing names of shortlisted candidates.
One of the applicants, Idowu Titilope, said he is bothered about the position of the government given that it has been over six months since they apply for the programme.
“But up till now no information or update as to the fate of the applicants, it is a kind of frustrating and disappointing because most of us the unemployed graduates were actually hoping to leverage on this scheme to see how we can better our lots since there’s no job in the country.
Another applicant, Gbega Kolawole who missed the earlier n-power application in the last recruitment, said he was hoping for the short list to be out but unfortunately it has been delayed by the government.
“It is frustrating that we don’t have any news about the batch C application till now, I really need this I have so much financial responsibilities and I only hope that the list will be out soon and I will be shortlisted so I can take care of myself ”.
The scheme currently has six categories namely; N-Teach, N-Health, N-Agro, N-Build, N-Creative and N-Tech. N-Teach and N-Health are available to only graduates who must have completed the mandatory one year NYSC programme, while N-Agro, N-Build, N-Creative and N-Tech is available to graduates and non-graduates
