Recall that AllNews had about recently, exclusively reported that numerous beneficiaries of the Nigerian government’s N-Power initiative said that contrary to what was claimed by Ikem, they are yet to receive or see any evidence of imminent payment.

Over 14, 200 N-Power batches A and B beneficiaries are owed (monthly stipend is N30, 000).

On Thursday, April 15, 2021, AllNews spoke to several affected bonafide N-Power Batch A and B beneficiaries, and they all said they have not gotten paid.

Matthew Taskwa told AllNews: “I am owed five(5) months stipends up to date I have not received any text for payment. Please we're pleading for the federal government to look on these situation and help the youths. Thanks, God bless our leaders and our country Nigerias.”

See some other recent reactions from some of the affected N-Power beneficiaries below:

While Batch A N-Power beneficiaries were disengaged from the scheme in June 2020, their Batch B colleagues were exited the following month - July 2020.
