The expansion of N-Power would ensure job creation and poverty alleviation through programs such as the Safety Net Programs to cushion the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, Buhari said.

We have also implemented some socio-economic policies, including conditional cash transfers to increase from the current 2.6 million vulnerable households to 7.6 million (about 32 million people), he said.

He also recalled the Covid-19 Rapid Response Registry for the urban poor, and the Enterprise Support Program.

Likewise, he highlighted the Artisan Support Fund, aimed at encouraging micro, small and medium-sized enterprises by offering free registration for future businesses.

These are productive work opportunities with a fair income, job security and social protection for families, better prospects for personal development and social integration, he concluded.
