More about N-Power NEXIT
14 months after the launch of the N-Power NEXIT by Nigerian authorities and since their exit from the N-Power scheme in June and July 2020, this newspaper can authoritatively report that there is no single ex-beneficiary that has been placed into the any Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) intervention option — as promised.
NEXIT is a portal designed for the CBN empowerment programme for exited N-Power beneficiaries (batches A and B). It was launched in November 2020, but has not been effected despite hundreds of the erstwhile beneficiaries successfully completing registration. The next stage of the NEXIT had not been announced either – since 2020.
This newspaper understands that a huge number of N-Power batches A and B beneficiaries are presently back into the unemployment population of Nigeria since the decision of the FG to throw them out in June and July 2020.
Nigeria has one of the worst unemployment rate in Africa.
Unemployment in Africa’s largest economy surged to the second highest on a global list of countries monitored by Bloomberg. In 2020, the unemployment rate in the country was hat approximately 7.96 percent.
