Npower News on Permanency –
A new N-Power permanency advocacy group, Movement for the Actualization of N-Power Permanency (MANP) has emerged with a call on the federal government to immediately commence the process of regularising N-Power volunteers into the mainstream civil service.
The group said that unlike previous N-Power permanency advocacy groups such as the influential G-111 for Permanency, N-Power Enhancement Advocacy Movement (NEAM) and Coalition of N-Power Permanency Campaign Groups (CNPCG) whose agitation activities were not matched with action, the new movement was prepared to shake the foundation of the country with peaceful and articulated agitation. In a statement singed by the group’s National Coordinator, Saviour Onyekwere, its National Public Relations Officer, Joachim Akpata and National Organizing Secretary, Zainab Akintola, the group urged N-Power volunteers to be prepared for a new form of permanency agitation that will elicit positive reaction from government and other stakeholders.
“The need for a new well coordinated N-Power permanency agitation group has not only become necessary at this time but also inevitable. This group, to be known and addressed as the Movement for the Actualization of N-Power Permanency (MANP) is dedicated to only one objective: achieving permanency for the hundreds of thousands of N-Power beneficiaries whose fate is currently hanging on the balance”. While noting that the group have completed arrangement to send a powerful high profile delegation to the minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, the National Assembly and ministry of Labour and Employment, the group said that the move when completed, will transform N-Power volunteers into permanent staff of the federal civil service.
“We shall in the coming weeks embark on lobbying and advocacy visit to key stakeholders who are very important to our course. It is our hope that this set of individuals and groups will give voice to our campaign and enhance its actualization”. But where these steps fails, we shall be left with no other option than to embark on a peaceful nonviolent protest to press home our demand which is to be absorbed into the mainstream federal civil service”, the statement by the group read.
