FG Send An Important Information To N-Power Beneficiaries

Published

on

The federal government has increased the number of beneficiaries under the N-power programme from 500,000 to 1,000,000 in efforts designed to actualise its target of taking 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in 10 years.

The Director-General of the Industrial Training Fund (ITF) Sir Joseph Ari stated this at the graduation ceremony and distribution of start-up packs to beneficiaries of the 2020 National Industrial Skills Development Programme (NISDP), which was conducted by the Industrial Training Fund (ITF) amidst the Covid-19 pandemic as part of our efforts to provide Nigerians with technical skills for job and wealth creation.

Exactly 11, 100 Nigerians mostly youths were trained in Tailoring, Information Technology and Cosmetology.

The ITF boss explained that given the circumstances under which the government undertook the training,

“this ceremony we are witnessing today is, therefore, not only an expression of our unyielding desire but also our message to all Nigerians that despite adversity and challenges, we as individuals, organisations and as a country, shall always overcome with the right commitment.”

Ari noted that “going by the report of the survey by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) of Q4 of 2020, to the effect that unemployment was still hovering at over 33 per cent while youth unemployment was as high as 44 per cent, it is obvious that more needs to be done.

Senator Mrs Uche Ekwunife Fulfils her promise of giving Business Grant to 1000 beneficiaries (See beneficiaries)

EKWUNIFE FACILITATES BUSINESS GRANTS FOR 1000 BENEFICIARIES

Over 1000 beneficiaries have been credited in another batch of intervention funds cash transfers facilitated by the Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District, Uche Ekwunife as part of her continuous efforts to empower the people of the constituency and assist them in their businesses.

The cash transfers began to drop on the bank accounts of the beneficiaries who had applied at the constituency office on Friday, June 18, 2021. We therefore use this opportunity to urge constituents who had applied for intervention funds from the office to always check their phones regularly for acceptance messages, and subsequently expect the receipt of funds. Those who have taken delivery of the funds should report to the office for documentation and further assistance.

Constituents are at liberty to visit the Intervention Funds and Benefits Department of the Liaison Office, located at Senator Uche Ekwunife Centre, Opposite Udoka Housing Estate Awka to provide details which would assist the office in facilitating the various Federal Government’s intervention funds/benefits for them.

Senator Ekwunife’s resolve to ameliorate the sufferings of the people by offering a representation that is visible, impactful and purposeful remains unflinching. More beneficiaries are expected to be captured in the ongoing programme in the coming weeks.

Felix Nwezi,
Director, Intervention Funds and Benefits Department Anambra Central Liaison Office.

Boko Haram Gets New Commanders

Published

on

Nigeria’s Boko Haram jihadist group has confirmed the death of its chief Abubakar Shekau, who sources say died during infighting with a rival Islamic State-allied faction, according to a video message from its presumed new commander.

In the short video in Arabic, top Boko Haram commander Bakura Modu, also known as Sahaba, urged his faction’s commanders to remain loyal despite the loss of their historic commander.

Shekau’s death was seen a major shift in Nigeria’s conflict, though Islamic State in West Africa Province or ISWAP has recently emerged as the dominant force in the more than decade-long Islamist insurgency in the country’s northeast.

The video, provided to AFP by a source close to Boko Haram and confirmed to be Bakura Modu by another local source, illustrates that jihadist infighting is far from over in Africa’s most populous nation.

Shekau, who gained notoriety after kidnapping nearly 300 schoolgirls in 2014, killed himself last month rather than surrender after IS-allied rivals attacked his base camp in Nigeria’s northeast Borno state, security sources said.
