One week after announcing to the Nigerian public that five hundred and two thousand, five hundred and eighty (502,580) data of N-Power beneficiaries have successfully migrated to the GIFMIS platform, AllNews can confirm that these genuine beneficiaries have still not been paid their June and July stipends.
Batch A beneficiaries are entitled to June stipend because they exited the Federal Government programme on June 30.
Batch B beneficiaries are being owed two-month stipends (June and July), as their duration in the famed scheme officially ended on July 31st.
Both batches' N30, 000 monthly stipend is still on the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq's neck. By our calculation, 23 billion naira is being withheld by the Zamfara-born politician.
And coupled with the fact that the exit package for these Nigerian youths which the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development has consistently maintained "will be shared soon" is vague, the outgoing volunteers are hugely disappointed in Farouq and her handling of the N-Power project.
A message recently sent to AllNews by a beneficiary, James Obens lamented the N-Power situation under Farouq.
"We know what it means to be in power, you mustn't use it against the people you are supposed to be a shield to to show how capable you are to show wickedness to your people," Obens said.
"My thought was that you wanted to help us save June stipend to meet that of July so we can use it properly, not until I watched the video of you saying you've paid us.
"You know you have not, please try as much as possible to pay it and Allah will bless you in return. You have other positions to contest for remember, so, don't let this damage your reputation."
