Npower is a program launched in Nigeria by President Buhari-led administration to reduce the unemployment rate in the country. To benefit from Npower, you need to fill the registration form online, confirm your email account, re-login to Npower website, and submit Npower application.
This program has reduced the rate of unemployed youth in the country to some certain extent. N-power is different from Tradomoni empowerment program by the Nigeria vice-president, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
However, these two programs are put in place to help unemployed youth get doing something pending the time a befitting job will be available and the Tradomoni for market women to help them boost their business.
