President Muhammadu Buhari

The national N-Power Youth Congress (N-PYC) has called on the federal government to fully absorp the recently disengaged 500,000 members of batches A and B into ministries, departments and agencies, (MDA), across the country.
The N-PYC National Coordinator, Hon. Joseph Enan Maigari, made the call at a news conference in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.
“It is the third news conference in the series on the same issue. Yet, the Federal Government, has refused to listen to our demands,” he lamented.
He said if government cannot absorb the disengaged members of the N-Power, at least some grants should be paid to each of the 500,000 youths as “exit packages”, wondering why nothing was pronounced by President Muhammadu Buhari, during Thursday’s presidential broadcast on ENDSARS protests.
He said the youths have been disengaged from the N-Power scheme without alternative option to cater for their livelihoods.
“We’re reminding President Muhammadu Buhari once again of his promises to us,” noting that the youths will never relent, until their demands are met.
