Can I reapply for N-Power on June 13 if there's no second batch list?

Last year, we're told that millions of Nigerian applied on, but 200,000 people were shortlisted for the first batch.

30, 000 applicants made N-Agro, Health had 20, 000 "slots" while N-Teach got the highest with 150, 000.

The government promised that another batch, which applicants termed second batch list, would be released, but it looks like that list is in the limbo just as government is silent about it.

The government rather promised to reopen the portal for fresh applications on June 13, 2017, according to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, whose office manages the Social Investment Programme (SIP).

Can those who didn't make the first batch, or those who are expecting the second batch list reapply when N-Power portal reopens on June 13?

QUADRI Azeez of NpowerNG Solutions is here with the analysis WHY YOU SHOULD REAPPLY if FG doesn't release Npower Second List before June 13.

Rules of caling N-Power State Focal Persons

First three of our articles on this blog were centered on names and phone numbers of State Focal Persons, unfortunately communicaque from Abuja said it's totally invasion and break of their privacies.

We had to remove the numbers.

That's uderstandble. Some of the Npower volunteers could call at odd hours. Calling State Focal Person by 7AM, 11PM is absolutely odd.

But, if Senior Special Assistant to the president on Job creation (N-Power)  Mr. Afolabi Imoukhuede could leave Abuja to tour virtually all the six geo-political zones in the country to have first hand information on the npower scheme, then it's should be a challenge to those who have been appointed as State Focal Persons to also take up the responsibility of adequately monitoring the programme in their states, and helping volunteers lessen their challenges.

Whichever the case is, we'll make available phone number of your state focal person based on demand, and if it's necessary to issue it. We may howeve…
