N-Power is a scheme that was set up by President Muhammadu Buhari on the 8th of June 2016, to address the issues of youth unemployment and help increase social development. It was created as a component of National Social Investment Program, to provide a structure for large-scale and relevant skills acquisition and development and to ensure that each participant will learn and practice most of what is necessary to find or create work.
