The Pro-Active Northern Initiative (PANI), has condemned the federal government’s suspension of the N-Power programme.

Comrade Isa Aliyu Musa, convener of the Group, in a statement read at a press conference in Kaduna, said the suspension came at the wrong time.

Musa said: “The suspension came at a critical time when hunger is stalking millions of homes, inflation is making life difficult by the day, people are losing jobs, businesses are closing down. Infrastructure is decaying, young Nigerians losing hope of being employed, hospitals filled with people who suffer mysterious illnesses, and cannot afford the fees.

“We demand that the government immdiately reconsiders its decision and instead invests in expanding the N-Power program to provide opportunities for the youth, fostering positive change, and ultimately contributing to the region’s progress.

“Instead of suspending the programme, the government should focus on expanding its reach and impact. By investing in the N-Power programme, the government can provide more opportunities for skill development, job creation, and financial support to a larger number of youth.

“This expansion would not only contribute to the economic growth of the region but also foster a sense of hope and optimism among the youth, reducing their vulnerability to extremist ideologies.
