    N-POWER: Lagos applicants protest over non commencement of programme

    Some aggrieved youths who applied for the Federal Government’s N-POWER programme caused a stir, on Wednesday when they stormed the Lagos State House of Assembly in Alausa to protest the non-commencement of the scheme in Lagos State.
    N-POWER scheme is a Federal Government programme aimed at reducing the rate of unemployment in the country and candidates successfully selected will earn N30,000 monthly.
    The protesters alleged that their counterparts in other states had started enjoying the benefits while applicants in the state had been deprived of their own entitlements.
    Chairman of the House Committee on Information and Strategy, Tunde Braimoh, in his reaction described the non commencement of the scheme in the state as “appalling, embarrassing and flabbergasting.”
    Braimoh, who advocated that the programme should be probed said, “The Federal Government thought it fit to ameliorate the suffering of unemployed by introducing this programme. It is bad that some people stalled its commencement in the state.
    “It is bad, we should do the needful by intervening, we need to even probe what is going on with the scheme.”
