The Npower Program was created to provide Nigerian youths, both graduates and non-graduates, with the skills and work experience they need to find work or start their own business.
Meanwhile, businesses or owners that fail to release one percent of their profit to fund the National Youth Service Corps risk a N2m fine or one year jail term, this according to a proposal by the House of Representatives on the National Youth Service Corps Trust Fund (Establishment) Bill 2021.
The Fund would be funded by a fee of one percent of the net profit of businesses and the organized private sector operating in Nigeria, according to the bill, which is currently awaiting its second reading in the House.
The trust fund will also be funded with 0.2 percent of total revenue going to the Federation Account, as well as any take-off grants and special intervention funds provided by the federal, state, and local governments.
