The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, disclosed this on Thursday in Abuja during the inauguration of the National Social Investment Management System (NASIMS).

According to Mrs. Farouq, one million persons would benefit in the current batch C of the social investment programme, adding that the beneficiaries would be required to undergo a mandatory online test as part of the selection process.

She noted that the Batch C programme would run for 12 months, stressing that each beneficiary would be paid a monthly stipend of N30,000 each.

“We have reached another milestone in the process of recruiting and onboarding of the Batch C N-Power beneficiaries beginning with 500,000 beneficiaries.

“The N-Power Batch C as inaugurated today is structured to onboard one million new beneficiaries, beginning with an initial 500,000 beneficiaries in the first stream.

“A subsequent 500,000 beneficiaries in a second stream, all aligned to the national policy drive of lifting 100 million people out of abject poverty in 10 years.”

The minister said all applicants had been migrated onto the NASIMS platform and that they would undergo a mandatory online test as part of the selection process.

“The programme is now positioned to be more strategic through the NASIMS. Beneficiaries will now be able to get more from programme, and experience a seamless verification process as well as an efficient transition and exit management plan through the NASIMS.

“Beneficiaries can now log into http://nasims.gov.ng to take their test and subsequently carry out the process. [email protected] is the dedicated email address for complaints and enquiries,” she added.

This is coming a few months after President Buhari increased the number of beneficiaries of the N-Power, school feeding, other National Social Investment Programmes in other to accommodate more people.
