Most of the disengaged N-Power Beneficiaries will stand a chance of being absorbed for KWARA CARES where they will participate and get engaged as agents afterwards.
This is according to a statement signed Wednesday by the Acting General Manager of the Kwara State Social Investment Programme (KWASSIP) Mohammed Brimah, the state is considering absorbing the NPower graduates.
The statement said, “Aside from their wealth of experience, many people in this category are still looking for opportunities after being disengaged from the federal government scheme. We’re looking to give them a lifeline by enlisting them as agents for the project.”
Training however begins today Thursday in Ilorin where no fewer than 150 youths are participating in a program facilitated by KwaraSIP as potential agents to help with the data capturing for the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) Kwara State.
KWASSIP is partnering with the Bank of Industry (BOI) in the facilitation of the training for KWARA CARES (Covid-19 Action Recovery and Economic Stimulus).
This, the statement said is a relief programme funded by the World Bank working with the Nigerian government to provide relief for the poor and vulnerable and support of small scale businesses in Nigeria.
This action by governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq will complement the federal government’s efforts in developing manpower and reducing the unemployment rate in the state.
