She said that the programme for N-power beneficiaries will be supported by the Central Bank of Nigeria, under the Shared Agent Network Expansion Facility (SANEF).

Sadiya said, “Plans have been concluded for the transition of the N-power Batch A and B through the creation of the NEXIT portal, which would allow those who choose to sign up to access other government empowerment opportunities.

“A beneficiary management system for the NSIPs is expected to be deployed in 2021. It would have the capacity to manage payments, address grievances and improve dissemination of information.”
