Zilla Intezamia Se Rabta is one of the new government plans which aims at assisting the unemployed get back to work. It was launched during the last month, during a time when unemployment was at its worst in Nigeria.
The Zilla Intezamia program offers cash loans and allowances to the jobless, and promises them that their monthly income will be more than enough to cover all their living expenses.
The program was introduced by Finance Minister Amaipation Badu under the leadership of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
He explained that this program is designed to help those who are down with a mountain of debt at the very least, and to give them back a respectable way of life.
Among others who were present at the launch were former President Goodluck Jonathan’s wife, former President Kuffour and Cabinet Minister Bayan Adeel Chowdhry.
Zilla Intezamia Se Rabta, has been launched just ahead of National Debt Relief Week, which is scheduled from the 5th of January to the 7th of January this year.
It is only for those Nigerian citizens who are between eighteen and thirty five years of age, and who are engaged in some form of employment.
They may apply either by fax or online. Once approved, they receive a payment of up to five hundred naira or about twenty dollars (or a little over one US dollar) per day.
In addition, applicants can get additional benefits for their participation in the program such as food, accommodation and transport allowance. This program is unique in the sense that it is the first of its kind in Nigeria.
Other government programs offer cash loans for the unemployed as well, but the difference lies in the terms and conditions.
Zilla Intezamia is unique not only because it offers a one time payment by the applicant, but also because he or she has to do it in one payment, each and every day.
The reason why Zilla Intezamia has become so successful in the economy is because it eliminates the role of middlemen, which allows more individuals to take advantage of it.
Also, the program is tailored to suit all requirements of the applicant and does not discriminate on any grounds. This is possible as there are no advance payments involved.
If an applicant fails to comply with the terms and conditions, he or she will not be permitted to participate in the program, and has to start the whole process again.
A lot of job opportunities have opened up, as well as a lot of money for those wishing to engage in different jobs. Being involved in the program, one’s hopes increase that things will improve for them, and the future is definitely bright.
Zilla Intezamia Se Rabta, is truly worth checking out, and if you are one of those who would like to try it, you can apply online or by regular mail.
