Distribution of the tablet devices for the batch B beneficiaries of N-power has kicked off in Lagos, South West Nigeria.
N-power in a message on its social media channels said that the distribution of devices would get to other states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
“The distribution of the 2nd batch of N-Power devices has commenced. It commenced in Lagos and will spread out to other states shortly.
Please be patient, everyone will get their device. This applies ONLY to 2016 beneficiaries in the 2nd batch.”
Before the recruitment of over 500,000 Nigerian youths through the N-power job initiative was made public in 2016, Presidential Team on the Social Investment Programme (SIP) already has a template on which they’d be working with.
So plans were on ground to give out “N-powerment” devices to successful volunteers. And that led to the commissioning of nine tech firms to produce high-powered tablets for the volunteers. Unfortunately HP later pulled out.
But the remaining eight firms are capable hands having passed through integrity test of the social intervention presidential team.
The N-power volunteers, just like those who collected theirs in 2017, will be given different tablets by different makers.
The device tablets include:
Samsung Galaxy Tab E,
AfriOne 2-in-1 Transformer,
Techno Droid 10,
Zinox Zpad tablet,
RLG tablet, and
