– 150,000 to teach
– 30,000 to serve as Agric extension workers
– 20,000 as public health workers
The inaugural set of 200,000 unemployed graduates already selected in the first batch of the N-power volunteer job and training scheme of the Buhari Social Investment Programmes should start work in the next two weeks.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN made this disclosure over the weekend while attending the Apostolic Coalition Summit in Lagos.
He noted that “at the moment close to a million graduates have registered on the volunteer scheme and we should be doing the first 200,000 in the next 14 days or so, we should be able to get started with the first 200,000 across the country.”
According to him as a stop gap measure, the Buhari administration is engaged in direct creation of jobs, including the plan to create 500, 000 jobs for unemployed graduates, 200,000 of whom have now been selected.
He explained that the programme should have commenced “as at October 31, 2016, but is delayed on account of the fact that we are trying to get as many of the equipments that we require,” referring to the tablets that would be given to all the 500,000 N-power undergraduate participants.
The Vice President further explained that efforts are also being made”to ensure that all across the country, we are able to provide those opportunities as we promised.”
Already 200,000 unemployed Nigerians have been selected, including 150,000 who would teach and serve in their communities, 30,000 who would serve as Agric Extension Workers and 20,000 who would serve as public health workers.
Each of the unemployed graduates would get a N30,000 monthly stipen and also get an electronic tablet that would be packaged with several applications that would train and empower the participants.
The Vice President reiterated that the N-Power scheme was launched as a volunteer programme “to create temporary opportunities for young graduates, to at least be doing something and many of them would be volunteer teachers, health officials and extension workers, who will earn a stipend.”
He added that the participants will also have a device “and that device has a lot of training brochures, different forms of training brochures and it’s also a device that enables them to be able to, on a continuous basis, learn different things, some code-writing, some entrepreneurial skills. There are lot of varieties of material that can be learned on the device. The device is also a means of communicating with them wherever they may be in the country.”
While the federal government would pay the 200,000 directly, state governments would play an active role in their deployment to the needed areas. The first batch of 200,000 selected volunteers are also being screened using the BVN so as to properly set-up the payment of their monthly stipends.

bro Osin. that is good, gradually things could really change.
All the best
Have always had this contrary believe that nothing is better than something sometimes… This is a paradigm of such instance… Graduate to earn 30k monthly is madness…such jobs just keeps you busy, thinking you got a job, slowly killing your search for a befitting job…Nonsense country….
U will live long my broda,u get big brain.
Seriously… They are heartless
Guy u get brain it will slowly killing ur future
I think you are getting it wrong. The 200,000 are more like volunteers so I think the 30k is fair. If you get a job of 30k give it an input of 30k. Or better still give it an input of 200k and prove that you are worth the 200k
Rubbish is DAT the change u promise us
Which way Nigeria????
Now exactly what can 30k do for a human being in this present regime? Smh

Dat bank dey ur village kwa? Some cashiers salary is below 50k
This is wickedness… This are salaries 4 non graduates nowadays n some i.t’s… So now after 5yrs they will pay me 30k… I rather start up a small scale business n still have d freedom of searching other places 4 job than stuck in 1miserable salary job…
How was the selection process carried out?
half bread is better than nothing
Brother you are sick
That is not half… That is quater 2 nothing… ?
30K for graduates?, with the present situation of this country?.
Is that the bus conductor?
#30, 000? Is it for recharge cards or what?
What is 30k?
Like seriously 30k as a monthly salary abi na allowance for graduates who ended up spending 6-7years instead of 4yrs programs bcos of strike? How much do they (govt) give to their children as pocket money in a week? Hmmmmmm God have mercy on our country. I encourage our young graduates to try n start “SMALL SCALE BUSINESSES” N TRUST ME, IF YOU DO N DO IT WELL, SUCH MONEY (30K) would be a DAILY /WEEKLY PROFITS.
Nigeria is the only country where yahoo boy get brighter future past graduate all the suffer for 4yrs na wah o
Still a good way to start of from!!! it will get better in future
U can start from there…. Abi na ur private business?
Can’t get you???
Can 100k pay house, light, fuel in car or transport rather, fuel in generator as usual, feeding, clothing, school fee, parents feeding, hospital bills? And u r talking of 30k a month, rubbish,. Ur expenses in an hour is more than that,. U guys are just discouraging d next generation to quit education cos is totally useless!!!
God bless you
Even if it was only secondary school I attended, it will be a complete wast of my time to pay this stipend. Except, it will be a full government job with time. If not I have seen unskilled labour earn more than twice that amount.
What happen to person DAT need loan
Lolz,,, that’s like waste of Education!!
As bus conductors or what
D problem abt this ppl is they dnt knw y they r on that sit n d meanin of leadershp thats y u c them do tins wit their power, as if they r doin us a great favor. I dnt blame them.. In a country were a police man who shuld b ur guard n protect u has bcum ur master n order u around, molest u. Army man brutalizn n killins us lyk fowl, all we kip doin is attackn each other with insults n sentiment . BIG SHAME!!
FG, are u really proud of 30,000 as salary? Too bad.
A job that we keep you busy over nothing. Work and nothing to show fr it. What can 30k do for a graduate. Na dem sabi sha, I long forgotten about waiting for govt for job. #makingitbigonmyown
Please my advise to Federal Government is that they should try to enhance this mount it is too low, they can not do anything with this mount, let to for instance this 30,000 naira no reach house rent, commodities, etc. Thanks.
The man is gradually replacing lia muhammed
Buhari is talking, osinbajo is talking soon, tinubu was saying :’be patient ‘ but now, nowhere to be found, when will all these soon, soon and soon be realised? When everyone dies? God forbid!!!,
Even cleaners are complaining of 30,000 salary and you are to pay a graduate 30,000. I think you should start from your own children first
How were they selected? What’s the due process? Where’s the federal character? Where’s the list of the persons? You can’t fool everyone all the time bro
Theif is talking.foolish man
What nonsense is the Federal government talking of, without thinking. When things if costly everyday. What can 30.000 do a family man for 30 days. God….. We expect free education if not to the University level but up to secondary school level. Not to enslaved graduate in the name of work.
I don’t blame them at all. They think they owed the power and the world in their entire life. But they forget is just a question of time. Let me see what they will use to campaign in the next election.
What about the salary of people that has been working?
Excuse me Sir Prof. Are your kids, nieces, nephew, cousins included so they can give u the expected feedback ehn? If am not making mistake 30k isn’t up to 100£.
Yet you expect dem to be faithful and loyal to their jobs especially the Teachers, what would dey impact in the Kids?
Hope ur family members r dia?
I am yet to see the so called employed graduate in my locality, have u seen any?
30,000 to work in dis economy u guys left like dis???
God i pray my own turn shouldnt be like this in jesus name
That 30000 is too small please, increas it

What criteria did you use for the selection?

Wat a pity… #30,000. Chia.. Nigerians wake up, wat will dis do for us in a month…. May God deliver us from this people who know nothing about we they are ruling..
Go to hell with your job…. Is that what you and your family are spending on 30 days
Chaiiii, if truly u said it with ur mouth, oga ur wicked, what can 30k buy in this nation, can it feed the person alone?
Is This Employment A Scam ?? Bkuz Naija Is Broke Dat Y I Ask O 30k Multiply By 200,000 And Buhari Wil Tel Us He Met Empty Treasury
Thunder go fire dem all
Rather than criticize the government we should commend them. Rome was not built in a day. Slowly but surely…
Olori ibu ni baba yi sha u jst lyk making noise lyk drumset cymbal agbaya buruku olopolo latele ese
That was a mistake haba! Can’t you use your brain? He meant 300k not 30k… Just told him to correct it
Sisterly wake up! This dream you are dreaming is not a good one attol
Lai Mohammed said ooo not me
Even the select,how did you select the graduate,was it based on federal character,hand picking,I am ashamed of Osibanjo with his continuous limousine of lies
Are u collecting 30k where u are now? There is God.oooooo
So this is what this Apc government wants to turn Nigeria graduates into…… when people say that you have no good plans for the youths you will deny so what is going on now? remember that God is watching oooo
Ur soon no d finish nw. Soon soon d yr dn f end
Your government brings poverty
Am very sure your daughter wouldn’t accept 30k to make her hair. Am sorry for this government
Useless people. 30k per month?
Graduates to become teachers is more dignifying than saying they should be bus conductors.
You will rot in hell
God and devil punish u idiot
