The minister also said that 490,000 applicants would be selected for the Batch C, stream 2 while urging successful beneficiaries to login to their portal to print their deployment letter, see this guide
It was rumoured some days ago that there were physical screenings at local councils, but the social media handles of the N-Power reacted by saying:
Dear Prospective Batch C Beneficiaries.
Kindly disregard any information that did not originate from our verified social media channels.
We are currently not conducting any physical verification.
Any information currently making the rounds about physical verification should be considered FAKE NEWS!
How Many Nigerians Applied for Batch C?
According to Sadiya, over 6,000,000 young Nigerian graduates submitted applications for the programme.
According to her, batch C will onboard 510,000 beneficiaries in stream 1 and 490,000 beneficiaries in stream 2.
Here is how Stream 1 were selected:
Out of the 510,000 who made the stream one, 450,000 beneficiaries are graduates while 60,000 beneficiaries were non-graduate beneficiaries.
The minister stated that the graduate component will receive monthly stipends of N30, 000 while the non-graduate beneficiaries would be paid N10, 000 monthly stipends.
Beneficiaries will be posted to several sectors, including:
- Creative industry
How the Batch C works:
Sadiya was quoted as saying: “All beneficiaries are granted an appropriate starter pack for their trade to enable them start their businesses in their chosen trades.”
Mode of payment:
The creation of National Social Investment Management Systems (NASIMS) is to enable prompt payment and track issues faced by the beneficiaries.
As such, the ministry has partnered with key MDAs like the NYSC, the UBEC, the NPHCDA, the NOA to effectively implement its interventions.
