The Presidency, yesterday, disclosed that the federal government has so far expended a total N279billion as stipends for Nigerian youths drawn under the N-Power programme introduced in December 2016.

It said it was also collaborating with the leadership of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) to provide the needed data of qualified N-Power trainees for engagement in the proposed Community Policing Programme.

N-Power scheme is one of the National Social Investment Programmes (NSIP) introduced by the Buhari administration aimed at job creation for the teeming youths and ameliorating poverty in the country.
