BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Indications have emerged that the website launched by the Federal Government to receive applications of prospective Nigerians for 500,000 unemployed youths has crashed.
The development it was gathered is due to high traffic of the anxious applicants who thronged the website – www.npower.gov.ng, barely a week after it was launched into web space. The registration is under FG the N-Power Teacher Corps Scheme.
The engagement of the young unemployed graduates is to last for 24 months.
The website crash is despite the advice in a statement by the SA on Media and Publicity to the Vice President, Mr. Laolu Akande to candidates to consider the use of “fast internet service”, specifically, (3G or 4G network).
Speaking on the pay of successful applicants, Mr Akande indicated “besides their monthly take home pay estimated at about N23,000, the selected 500,000 graduates will also get computer devices that will contain information necessary for their specific engagement, as well as information for their continuous training and development.
He added that they must “keep the devices even after exiting from the programme.”
The VP aide also explained that based on the plan of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, the N-Power Teacher Corps programme was an invaluable opportunity for young Nigerians to make immense economic and social contributions to the nation while developing their skills.
In addition, the scheme, Akande pointed out would help to address the problems of inadequate teachers in public schools.
He hinted that candidates enlisted under the scheme would gain work experience and acquire key competencies through academic and non-academic capacity building programmes, intended to improve their competitiveness in the workplace, while their devices would be loaded with knowledge-oriented applications and software which would enable them acquire the needed skills and capacity.
It would be recalled the application website for 10000 police recruitment also launched by the present administration via the Police Service Commission (PSC) recently suffered similar fate.
