Why Tinubu Suspended N-Power Program —Minister

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu has revealed the reasons behind the suspension of the N-Power program.


The initiative was launched by former President Muhammadu Buhari-led in 2016 and was aimed at addressing the issue of youth unemployment and helping increase social development.


Edu said the program thrives on irregularities within the scheme which must be investigated while noting that some beneficiaries on the payroll should have exited the program in 2022.


Speaking during an interview on TVC News on Saturday, Edu said, “We must go back to look into N-Power and understand what the problems are so we will suspend the program for now until we are done with proper investigation into the utilization of funds into the N-Power program.
