473, 137 enrolees of the Federal Government of Nigeria's N-Power programme are yet to get paid their June stipend, AllNews reports.

N-Power graduate beneficiaries are paid a monthly stipend of N30, 000, meaning fourteen billion, one hundred and ninety-four thousand million, one hundred and ten thousand naira (N14, 194, 110, 000) is being spent as remuneration by the Nigerian government every month.

Making known in Abuja about four months ago when members of the House of Representatives Committee on Poverty Alleviation visited her, Sadiya Farouq, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development stated that no fewer than 473,137 youths have been enrolled into the National Social Investment Programme of the federal government.

According to Farouq, the N-Power programme is aimed at driving skill development and job creation for unemployed youths between the ages of 18 and 35.

“As at February 25, there are 473,137 Nigerians enrolled into the programme," Farouq had said.

“The N-Power Graduate Programme is the federal government’s direct intervention to tackle youth unemployment and re-energise public service delivery in four key sectors, that is, education, agriculture, health and tax."

At the present time, one week into the new month, beneficiaries are still waiting to be paid.

Since the transfer of the National Social Investment Programme (N-SIP) to the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development in October 2019, N-Power beneficiaries' pay has not been regular, this writer gathered from several volunteers.

Today is the eighth day of the seventh month of the year, yet, beneficiaries have not been settled their June stipend.

This has caused many of them to come on social media (Twitter most especially) to demand their payment.
