The federal government says it has received verified lists of graduates who are to benefit from its N-POWER project, from thirteen states.
This, as it prepares to start the payment of monthly stipends to the 200,000 graduates engaged under the job creation programme of the Buhari administration.
The spokesman to the Vice President, Laolu Akande says that graduates in some states have actually been deployed to their primary places of assignment.
He also says the payment of their stipends will start this month, as soon as verification and deployment are concluded.
Half a million workers are expected to be hired for the 2-year paid volunteer job programme.
