The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouq has said that no fewer than five million candidates have applied for the N-Power program.

The Minister made the disclosure in a statement on Tuesday by her Special Assistant on Strategic Communication, Mrs Halima Oyelade, NAN reports.

She said that the registration which commenced on June 26 was to end on July 26 but was extended by two weeks.

“A total of 5,042,001 Nigerian youths have applied as at the end of the registration.

“Due diligence will be applied during the next stages of the selection to ensure that only duly qualified applicants are enrolled.

“The Ministry will ensure that the applicants as well as the general public, are fully informed on the progress of the scheme,” she said.
