There had been controversies between Ms Farouq and President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Adviser on Social Investment, Maryam Uwais, about the exit package for the Batch A and B volunteers as each traded blame on who was responsible for the delay in disengaging the beneficiaries.

“The minister had blamed the National Social Investment Office (NSIO), under Mrs Uwais for having no viable plan for the exit of the beneficiaries.” See https://myeduproject.com.ng/transitioning-batch-a-b-psychometric-test-past-questions-and-answers

“In reaction, Mrs Uwais said her administrators had made ‘exit plans’ which had not been implemented before the office was moved under the leadership of Ms Farouq. She also said she had briefed Mrs Farouq on those plans”.

She told reporters of the Transition plans developed since November 2019, and that all beneficiaries would be engaged according to the Psychometric assessment result

The minister made it clear, we are only transiting volunteers into a meaningful and viable ventures, we will not throw volunteers to the street

Beneficiaries will be transitioned into Government Entrepreneurship Schemes and other Viable Private Sectors to boast the economy devasted by covid-19

The minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Ms. Umar Sadiya Farouq, said Federal Government is gradually transitioning volunteers to the next level to make provision for others.

The goal is to keep volunteers Npowered while positioning Nigeria at the core of the post covid-19 digital economy.

Responding to a question asked on NTA, the Minister hinted Government plan to transition volunteers without laying them off.

“As part of the transition process before eligible volunteers will be absorbed into government entrepreneurship schemes and engaging private sector bodies to absorb some of the beneficiaries, a compulsory completion of psychometric assessment would be done to determine competency and placement into various opportunities – Hajiya Sadiya Farouq disclosed.

The Federal Government will be opening opportunities in the services and real sectors of the economy where all volunteers will be deployed.

 

Some key sectors for deployment include:

  • Real Estate
  •  Hospitality
  • Information & Communication Technology (ICT)
  • Creative industry
  • Finance (agency banking) 
  • Agriculture & Agro processing
  • Transport and Logistics
  •  Retail (e-commerce)

Psychometric Test Will Be Conducted Before Absorption

As part of the transition process before eligible volunteers will be absorbed into government entrepreneurship schemes and private sector bodies

A compulsory completion of psychometric assessment will be done to determine competency and placement into various opportunities- Umar Sadiya Farouq disclosed

“The ministry said the current enrollees of the scheme (Batch A) will exit June 30, 2020 while (Batch B) will exit the programme on July 31, 2020.”

“This is contained in a statement in Abuja on Friday by the Deputy Director Information of the ministry, Rhoda Iliya”

Hajiya Sadiya Farouq,  said “We have commenced the transitioning of beneficiaries from Batches A and B into government entrepreneurship schemes and engaging private sector bodies to absorb some of the beneficiaries after the completion of psychometric assessment to determine competency and placement into various opportunities.

Npower will be streamlined

In Sadiya’s words “We are working hard to streamline the programme for greater efficiency and to provide opportunities for more Nigerian youths. Details will be provided as soon as May stipend has been paid.

We may not know the true meaning of streamlining as per the programme. But what we do know is that, many changes will take effect

Some volunteers will be retired and many more will come in, in few days’ time, the minister will make a powerful declaration and her intension will be made known to all

              

Payment of June Stipends will be made in July    

The minister has said, June stipend is already been processed, that is, it has been signed and processed, ready to be paid without delay

Volunteers, both A and B need not to protest or resort to names calling before being paid, the tragedy caused by the action of the volunteers reached higher authorities, and sadiya had no choice but to pay

Already her office is being questioned with alleged maladministration, misappropriation, and corruption, making EFCC ready to pick her for questioning. A sad reality no public figure will welcome

Both batch A and B will be paid very soon, while we do not the exact and date stipends will be paid, MYEDUPROJECT is quite sure, it will not be delayed as before 

Registration of New Entrant (400,000 new volunteers)

According toMrs Farouq in her last video, she made mentioning of new volunteers to be recruited. If 500, 000 volunteers of batch A and B would go, it means, there must be replacement

“Batch A and B beneficiaries were supposed to spend 24 months on the programme, but Batch A beneficiaries have spent over 40 months thereby denying other Nigerians an opportunity to access the programme and gain skills for entrepreneurship and employment

A critical look at the bolded in her statement shows, more Nigerian youths will be welcomed in no distant time. Npower Portal is already upgraded and ready for massive registration 

No Hope for Device Selection and Pickup in July

The much-promised devices, might not come at all, both batch A and B will some be transited to another level, thus; devices may just be a “wishful thinking to batch B”

There is no sign it will come, volunteers of Batch B need to up their game, if they ever want to enjoy the privilege given to batch A

All beneficiaries should take to mrs sadiya’s twitter page handle and sign tirelessly of the much promised IPAD
