The platform, which was developed in collaboration with the CBN, will enable former N-power beneficiaries to log on and apply for the various economic, empowerment and entrepreneurship options provided by the CBN.
Hajiya Sadiyya Farouq, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, who revealed this on Saturday appealed to ex- beneficiaries of N- power to log on to the portal and provide the required additional information for possible placements into the various CBN intervention options.
