According to N-power there's unprecedented surge in the number of 2017 application compared to NpowerNG 2016So why is NpowerNG 2017 competitive?Here are the five top reasons why NpowerNG 2017 was competitive That’s simple.1) Trust in the NpowerNG job scheme During the 2016 application process no one ever believed that a federal job program or application could be fair without political influence.But it was fair and the world was amazed that such is happening in Nigeria for the first time.2) Promise fulfilled Second, the federal government promised that the 200,000 successful volunteers would be paid N30,000 each per month. And they began the payment beginning from December 2016. Meaning the FG started paying 6billion Nigerian Naira per month to the successful applicants.3) High application received in 2017The number of applications in 2016 was low because people thought it’s a usual business. Nigerians had their hopes dashed in the past administrations. There was lack of trust unt…
