    Hi! I have been npower beneficiary for good one year and i got every familiarity with my stipend and there is a big threat deep down in my heart ( as I was a job less graduated nigerian) with what do we end up this program, my threat here is that do we (500000 beneficiaries) go back to the state of being job less again? God forbid it and never let it happen with every optimization and very good perception to the FGN all of us would either be permanented or something tangible would be done us in order to keep on supporting our lives and our families as Nigerians who are ever ready to support the development of their county with all patriotisms both at the present time and future. Nigeria is great and would be more greater again, may God bless Nigeria. Thanks
