The Federal Government youth empowerment scheme, N-Power, has issued out warning against beneficiaries that might want to act fraudulently in the delivery of the assignment which they have been given.
N-Power warned two categories of beneficiaries, those who already have a job, asking them to resign from the scheme; and those who might want to play smart by asking someone to attend their assignment for them.
Writing on its Facebook, the scheme said, “Dear 2017 Beneficiaries, If you know you already have a job, resign now as a beneficiary. If you ALSO know that you are fraudulently asking someone to attend your PPA, STOP now. We will make examples of defaulters.”
Recall that FELLOW PRESS reported that 300,000 beneficiaries have been deployed to their various places of primary assignment (PPA) across the country. The youths will be engaged for the next 2 years in teaching, agro, health, construction among other discipline and they will earn a stipend of N30,000 monthly.
N-Power is part of the social investment programme (SIP) of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to both eradicate poverty and empower the masses. Other platforms under SIP are school feeding for pupils.
