Nigeria’s acting president, Yemi Osinbajo has appointed the Senior Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Investment Programmes (SIP), Barrister Ismaeel Ahmed on Monday, June 12th, 2017.
SIP is a social intervention programme set up by the current administration to help Nigerian youths scale through the high rate of unemployment in the country.
SIP has provided young Nigerians with thousands of job opportunities across the country already with the sum of N30,000 as monthly salaries through the N-Power scheme.
According to Daily Post, Ahmed’s approval was disclosed by Buhari’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Engagement Unit, Bashir Ahmed through his Twitter page.
“Acting President, Prof Osinbajo approves the appointment of Barr. @IsmaeelAhmedB as SSA to the President on Social Investment Programmes.”
Meanwhile, the Minister of State, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, has recently revealed that the Federal Government through SIP had empowered over 1.6 million Nigerians.
“For example, in N-Power Scheme that 200,000 beneficiaries have been employed, we are supposed to increase it to 500,000 beneficiaries in 2017.
“There is opportunity in the N-Power Programme for employment. There is opportunity in the GEEP for you to get finances to be able to start businesses. Please, this is real, it is working, join the process and be a beneficiary.”
