N-Power: 'Enough Of Interest Accrued By Saving Stipends Of 14,200 Beneficiaries In Banks' - Volunteer Lash Out At Buhari's Minister, Farouq

N-Power: 'Enough Of Interest Accrued By Saving Stipends Of 1

An erstwhile beneficiary of the Nigerian government's famed N-Power scheme, Aremu Ridwan, has criticised Sadiya Farouq, the minister of humanitarian affairs, disaster management and social development, for still not settling outstanding stipends of exited volunteers till date, AllNews reports.

It would be recalled that Farouq had in a tweet on October 27 promised that "all legitimate claims and those on verified list will be paid before the end of the year".

But AllNews can authoritatively report that few days to the end of the year, the minister and her ministry, which oversees the N-Power scheme, have not paid outstanding stipends of Batch A and B beneficiaries. This, despite the exited beneficiaries submitting the necessary papers to the right authorities to do the needful.

Ridwan, a concerned Nigerian youth took to his known Twitter handle on Sunday to call out Minister Farouq concerning the owed pay.

Recall that Batch A beneficiaries exited the programme on June 30 after four years in the scheme, while their Batch B counterparts officially made their exit on July 31st - after two years.
