The N-Power programme has now activated a new defense and security mechanism called the Captain N-Power to all existing and prospective NPower beneficiaries. The Captain N-Power is designed to catch all existing beneficiaries who are earning from other employments and also the N-Power programme.

The goals for establishing N-Power programme are

  1. To intervene and directly improve the livelihood of a critical mass of young unemployed Nigerians
  2. To develop a qualitative system for the transfer of employability, entrepreneurial and technical skills
  3. Create an ecosystem of solutions for ailing public services and government diversification policies
  4. To develop and enhance Nigeria’s knowledge and economy.

But all these are been hindered somehow by some of these issues in the system which Captain N-Power will be fixing. While thousands of unemployed graduates are outside there with no payment or employment, one volunteer corps member is there receiving one that
one stipends monthly. This is why captain N-Power is designed to fish such volunteer member.
Recall that during your online registration, physical verification, online verification and updating of profile, you were asked to provide your BVN number,  Oh yes, which you did that is why you have been receiving your monthly stipends.
That is the strategy employed by Captain N-Power, since your BVN links to thousands of your bank account, Captain N-Power will use this means to monitor the cash flow into your different accounts
and fish out others that have other white collar jobs.
Funny enough, some oil workers, bankers, government agencies etc also earn from their respective works and from N-Power while other do not earn any penny.
So if you are an N-Power existing beneficiary, at the same time earning from other employment, its either you exit the programme today or quit from the current job before you fall into Captain N-Power’s Net.

This new policy will help to remove individuals earning from other source and give room for more job creation for the unemployed youth.
The primary Aim of Captain N-Power is to Fish out Beneficiaries Earning from Other Employment

Captain N-Power which has been activated will expose beneficiaries earning from other employment
