History of Npower In Nigeria Updated

History of Npower In Nigeria Updated | The Federal Government of Nigeria’s N-Power Programme is a job creation and skill development initiative. The Program is aimed at young Nigerians between the ages of 18 and 35, with the goal of assisting them in acquiring and developing life-long skills that will enable them to become practical solution providers in their communities and innovative players in domestic and global markets.

N-Power is a scheme launched by Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, on June 8, 2016, to address youth unemployment and help increase youth employment.

The N-Power Program, which employs over 500,000 trained graduates in their communities, is a community-sourced solution to the nation’s underdeveloped public services such as education, healthcare, and civic engagement.


The Program is designed to help young Nigerians gain skills and certifications for emerging global markets in order to prepare them for a modern, globalized economy. Nigeria hopes to expand its already thriving technology sector by fostering a talent pool of software developers, hardware professionals, and other tech-related skills such as animators and digital artists.

N-Power is categorized into:

  • Graduate Programs
  • Non-Graduate Programs

N-POWER Graduate Programs


N-Power Agro is a program that provides services to farmers throughout the country. Part of the emphasis is on promoting the development of efficient farming techniques and practices to increase agricultural productivity.

The program’s other component offers technological and institutional development to farming communities in rural areas, where the public sector is particularly underrepresented. The N-Power Agro program is designed to connect Nigeria’s diverse communities while promoting a modern economy by strengthening the link between rural and urban communities and centralizing the knowledge base while incorporating local knowledge and practices.


The N-Power Teach program contributes to the improvement of basic education in Nigerian communities. Volunteers work as teachers’ aides in primary schools, where they interact with students to foster relationships and build confidence while also supporting their academic development. Furthermore, these volunteers bring education solutions to underserved communities, assisting the most marginalized members of their communities in obtaining the education required to participate in the modern workforce.

Volunteers assist in the implementation of STEM programs in primary schools, with a particular emphasis on computer science, engineering, applied mathematics, and other tech information knowledge.


The N-Power Health Program uses volunteers to provide care with a focus on prevention and the most vulnerable populations, such as pregnant women and children. The N-Power Health Program serves the dual purpose of improving the overall well-being of millions of citizens and supporting the development of healthcare infrastructure through community-based solutions by increasing access to basic health services in underserved communities.
