Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has said the N-Power programme of the Federal Government will be expanded to accommodate one million beneficiaries in the next phase.
Osinbajo said this on Tuesday when he responded to questions at a town hall meeting in Abuja.
The vice-president said that N-Power was borne out of the growing need for government’s direct intervention in job creation.
He further explained that the government could not pay more than the N30, 000 currently to beneficiaries and also fix all the unemployment issues.
According to him, it was infrastructure that will create opportunities to provide more jobs, especially through manufacturing and Industry.
