How To Apply for Renewed Hope Job Creation Programme (RHJCP)

The federal government has given its assurance that N-Power beneficiaries will begin receiving their overdue entitlements starting from November. Akindele Egbuwalo, the national programme manager of N-Power, shared this update during a meeting with some N-Power beneficiaries in Abuja. However, he noted that these payments will be made in installments.

This development has been officially confirmed through a statement issued in Abuja on Monday, October 16, by Jamaluddeen Kabir, the national communication manager of the National Social Investment Programme Agency (NSIPA).

Egbuwalo also disclosed that the N-Power program has been rebranded as the Renewed Hope Job Creation Programme (RHJCP). According to the statement: “Due to the temporary suspension of the program for a comprehensive restructuring and forensic audit, funds have been recovered from the existing payment service providers. The program has put plans in place to commence the disbursement of the 9 months outstanding stipends to beneficiaries from November 2023, and these payments will be made in installments.”

In addition to the name change, Egbuwalo also announced that the program is set to absorb 1 million youths each year, aligning with the expanded target of reaching 5 million beneficiaries. He stated: “In line with the new agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the N-Power program will continue as the Renewed Hope Job Creation Programme (RHJCP), under the supervision of the Honourable Minister, Dr. Betta Edu. The program aims to expand to encompass 5 million beneficiaries over 5 years, absorbing 1 million youths each year across the graduate and non-graduate streams.”

What is RHJCP?

The Renewed Hope Job Creation Programme (RHJCP) is a social intervention initiative by the Nigerian government with the primary objective of generating employment opportunities and alleviating poverty among Nigerian youths. This program was inaugurated in October 2023 by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a successor to the N-Power program.

RHJCP is a 5-year project aimed at creating 5 million job opportunities for Nigerian youths between the ages of 18 and 35. It offers beneficiaries training and monthly stipends for a period of 12 months. After the training phase, beneficiaries will either transition into permanent jobs or receive support to launch their own businesses.

The RHJCP comprises two streams: Graduate and Non-Graduate. The Graduate stream is designed for Nigerian youths with a bachelor’s degree or equivalent qualifications, while the Non-Graduate stream caters to those with a secondary school certificate or its equivalent.

RHJCP provides training in various skill areas, including but not limited to:

  • Agriculture
  • Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
  • Construction
  • Creative arts
  • Hospitality
  • Education
  • Healthcare

Participants in RHJCP will receive a monthly stipend of ₦30,000 (approximately $75) and will also benefit from health insurance coverage and additional perks.

This program is a significant step forward for Nigerian youths, given the country’s substantial young population, with over 60% of the population aged under 35. Youth unemployment is a pressing issue in Nigeria, and the RHJCP has the potential to generate jobs and empower young Nigerians to contribute to the nation’s development.
