N-Power Recruitment Exercise Extended To 27th July, Register Now
N-Power Application: Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo has extended registration for 2017 N-Power application by two weeks.
The application portal will now close on Thursday, July 27, 2017.
Osinbajo announced this on Friday when he visited the N-Power Call Center in Abuja, where some youths were given tablets to facilitate their jobs.
The Acting President also revealed that about 2.3million individuals had already applied for engagement under the scheme.
“Already 200,000 young people have been engaged. And since the programme was opened another 2.3 million have applied and we are looking at the next phase of engagement.
“Politicians collecting information is their problem. We have said again and again, that the only application we recognize is done online.”
“But for me I think what is important is that we are able to do this incrementally and we are able to give hope to some of these young people who need the opportunity.

“We will never always be able to do everything but I think that it is important that we do as much as we can.
“You will recall that the target was 500,000 but depending on our resources we can always do more but the target for now is 500,000.
“But what I want to say to the young people working on this is that, if we take the opportunity for instance if you look at the tablet given to them, the tablet contains so much information, so much learning material that one can really develop his skills in a wide variety of ways and be able to give himself greater opportunity,” Osinbajo said.

Just in: Nigerian Immigration Service to employ 1,112 officers
Babandede made this known yesterday during a chat with the media.
According to him, the current recruitment drive was meant to fill the shortfall of slots left after the service had re-absorbed 888 of 2,000 officers engaged in May 2015, who were later disengaged in August of the same year.
“I inherited a big problem when I came on board with a lot of young officers protesting on the streets about the recruitment that was cancelled in 2015,” Babandede said, in reference to the 2,000 officers that were fired by the Muhammadu Buhari administration in August, 2015.
The Comptroller General said it was based on his recommendation the sacked 2,000 officers were re-screened to verify their credentials and security reports.
He further said that at the end of the exercise the Immigration Board authenticated and reabsorbed 888 officers back to the service; adding that the ongoing employment was therefore aimed at providing replacement for the 1,112 laid off by the re-screening of the initial 2,000 hired in May 2015.
