The strategy of the N-Creative, according to the Nigerian government, is to put Nigeria’s creative industry on the global radar as exporters of world-class services and content.

Beneficiaries and trainees on January 19 started arriving at their campus, and registration commenced immediately.
About two weeks ago, Sadiya Umar Farouq, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development of Nigeria stressed that during the camp training, each trainee is entitled to a feeding allowance of N900 per day as well as N10,000 monthly stipend for a period of one year.
According to the minister, in addition, a laptop is provided as a training tool, procured to enable trainees to maximise the skills learnt during their stay in the camp and to start off with their vocation.
She expressed her desire to see N-Creative beneficiaries in the Nigerian entertainment industry soon, even as she disclosed that the training programme will last for a period of two months, after which they will proceed on a nine-month apprenticeship programme in their various locations.
N-Power Coordinator, Nsikak Okon had said that the N-Creative trainees will be trained by veterans in the movie industry.
Eye9ja had earlier reported that Segun Arinze, prominent voice actor on Monday taught beneficiaries some of the tricks and tips that have made him successful.
