Afolabi Imoukhuede, a Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to President Muhammadu Buhar on Job Creation, has said extension of the Batch 1 of the N-Power scheme for 200,000 volunteers beyond the November 2018 deadline has no political undertones.

Imoukhuede made the clarification while featuring on ‘Guest of the Week’ on OSRC TV on Thursday in Akure, monitored by News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) correspondent.

Imoukhuede dismissed reports that some of the volunteers had threatened to vote against the government in 2019 should they be dropped, saying the extension was a benevolence on the part of the government.

“Nobody can threaten the government; even those we had exited from the programme because of some sharp practices could not threaten us. The extension had no political coloration.

“The purpose for which we designed the programme was to enhance their transition and since those for whom we designed it still have issues, we need to tidy up all loose ends which is what the enhancement intends to achieve,” he said.

The SSA expressed satisfaction with his interface with over 14,000 volunteers in Ondo State who vowed to support the next level agenda of the present government.

According to him, the volunteers have proven to be credible assets to drive President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election.
