  • N-Power Teachers Corps - 500,000 graduates
  • N-Power Knowledge - 25,000 non-graduates
  • N-Power Build - 75,000 non-graduates
The application process commenced on June 12th 2016 and was to close on Monday, July 25. The Federal Government is keen on keeping its promise of empowering and uplifting young Nigerians by improving their livelihood and creating opportunities such as this is an inclusive and diverse manner as possible. As such, the Federal Government is providing an additional grace period for more young Nigerians to access the N-Power opportunity.

The deadline for receipt of applications now stands extended to Wednesday, August 31, 2016. The Federal Government will continue to work with the State Government through their respective focal persons on Social Investments to ensure that N-Power is diverse and inclusive. This extension presents an opportunity for persons who have not had the opportunity to apply to do so now. This will also allow these yet to complete the application process to ensure they see the process through as incomplete applications will not be processed and wll be invalid.

To apply simply Click Here and register for any one of the sub programmes. Please not that the applications may be subject to other criteria which can be found on the N-power website. Any prospective applicant, who has any challenge with uploading supporting documents unto the portal because of the size of the files, should attach these documents in a mail transmitted to: support@npower.gov.ng

After the application portal closes, there will be a verification, testing and selection process before successful applicants are enlisted in phases as the specific programme design may necessitate. The Federal Government will publicize the selection criteria before the application process comes to a close. Modalities relating to the enlistment process will no longer commence on August 1, 2016 as earlier envisaged due to the demand for extension by many Nigerians and our State collaborators.

Once again the federal Government is committed to ensuring that through N-Power, young Nigerians will acquire the skills and knowledge to become the driving forces of Nigeria's economic growth and social development.
