The Federal Government of Nigeria initiated the NG-CARES program with a $750 million loan from the World Bank in order to stimulate the Nigerian economy.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, made the announcement at the National Launch of the NG-CARES program on Thursday in Abuja.

NG-CARES is a multi-sectoral program that includes State Cash Transfer Units, Agriculture Development Agencies, and Job Creation Units/MSE Support Units funded by the Administration’s Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme, as well as the ongoing implementation of the Economic Sustainability Plan (ESP) (GEEP).

According to Prof. Osinbajo, the project will focus on the country’s poorest citizens.

“NG-CARES programme is designed to support vulnerable and poor Nigerians, provide immediate emergency relief to smallholder farmers and SMEs that were adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

He went further to say that the plan “was developed within the context of our response to the COVID-19 crisis and the Economic Sustainability Plan serving as the bridge.”

The World Bank loan will be for two years (2021-2023), with each state receiving $20 million ex-ante, the FCT $15 million, and the NG CARES Support Unit $15 million, according to the Vice President. The Program for Results-PforR delivery mechanism will be used to drive the program.

The Vice President went on to say that he was looking forward to the program’s rapid and effective implementation, both at the federal and state levels, and that he urged implementing agencies to “fully deploy their wealth of experience and expertise to ensure the successful take-off and implementation of the NG-CARES programme.”

What To Know About The New Npower Biometrics News For Stream 2

In today’s latest Npower news, will be discussing What To Know About The New Npower Biometrics News For Stream 2 so if you are a Npower applicant waiting for stream 2 shortlisting gather here!

Recall that a few months ago, there was an update regarding stream 2 shortlisting for biometric verification which most of you did capture your fingerprint at that time.

However, Npower was swift to action and put the exercise on hold saying that the change of biometrics verification was for stream 1 supplementary list but most of the stream 2 awaiting applicants had already done their biometrics fingerprint capturing because they equally saw a change on their verification status.

Nonetheless, Npower shared a new update yesterday the 14th of May 2022 stating that they have begun the Shortlisting process stream 2 and instructed the Npower applicants to begin Biometrics capturing which was put on hold a few months ago. You can read the new instructions here Nasims Instruct Npower Batch C Stream 2 To begin Biometric Capturing

Because most of you had earlier done the biometrics capturing, if you visit the verification status on your Nasims dashboard, you will notice that your fingerprint had already been captured. If this is your case, there is no need to panic or get yourself worked out, it means you have done your biometrics, and no need for recapture.

That notwithstanding, if you applied for Npower and were not Shortlisted for stream 1, or you were not earlier successful for stream 2 biometrics verification, kindly login to the Nasims dashboard https://nasims.gov.ng to check for your verification application status. You might be lucky this time and if you have earlier done your biometrics fingerprint capturing for stream 2, no need to recapture.
