The Minister of Humanitarian Services, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouk, stated this on Thursday during the weekly ministerial briefing organised by the presidential media team.

She said: “Yes, we have an exit strategy, which we partner with the Central Bank of Nigeria. And out of this 500,000, about 300,000 indicated interest to be put on an exit programme where you can be trained on different skills, skills of their choice and they will be given loans by the Central Bank of Nigeria, for them to start their businesses.

“This we have gone far. We are in the process of training those that have indicated interest. And I’m sure before the end of this quarter, these people will be giving these loans by the CBN.

“As a government agency the ministry, we do not give loans. So, we have to partner with those institutions that can do that.

“Unfortunately, some of these people were not very wise in their savings but for anybody that’s really serious, most of them have saved.

“About 109,000 of the N-Power beneficiaries have become entrepreneurs. They are now employers of Labour and we have evidence of that which can be provided to you.
