The Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Nneka Anibeze, who disclosed this in a statement on Monday in Abuja, said the participants are expected to confirm the availability for the programme by February 4.
She was however silent on the enrollment of a new batch of participants for the NPower programme.
Since Npower batch A and B participants exited the social intervention programme in May 2020, and the launch of the NEXIT portal the same year, the Federal Government has not come up with a concrete plan for the programme.
The federal government commenced the Npower programme in 2016 in a bid to reduce unemployment in the country.
The statement read: “The 1st batch of NEXIT Training will commence in February, 2022. Kindly dial *45665# on or before Friday 4th February to check your eligibility and indicate your availability to take part in the programme.”
