N-Power is a job creation and empowerment programme initiative of the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP) of the Federal Government of Nigeria. The N – Power programme which is meant for young Nigerians between the ages of 18 to 35 years is an intervention programme that will help address the challenge of youth unemployment by providing a structure for large scale and relevant work skills acquisition and development, while linking its core outcomes to fixing inadequate public services and stimulating the larger economy.
N – Build is a Non – graduate category of N – Power designed for training and certification of unemployed Nigerian youths in order to build a new crop of highly competent and skilled workforce of technicians, artisans and service professionals. The programme runs for a period of twelve (12) months. Three (3) months in Training Centres and nine (9) months apprenticeship with relevant industry employers.
As part of their exit package, beneficiaries were provided with a complete Automobile toolbox each to enable them set up their own mini – workshops after the training programme.
