The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, on Thursday said 500,000 graduates had so far been recruited under the Federal Government’s N-power programme.
Osinbajo disclosed this at a conference tagged: “Harnessing Demographic Dividend for Sustainable Development in Nigeria: The Role of Religious Leaders,’’ organised by United Nations Population Fund in Abuja.
He noted that the present administration under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari had introduced various intervention programmes to empower women and youths in order to reduce unemployment and poverty.
The vice president added that about 400,000 Nigerians were currently benefitting from the Conditional Cash Transfer Scheme of the present government.
Osinbajo also said that no fewer than 9.2 million children were being fed daily under the federal government’s school feeding programme.
