N-Power Stipends: Ministry Of Humanitarian Affairs Gets Arrears To Pay

The five-month unpaid stipends of exited N-Power volunteers have still not been paid, AllNews reports.

Recall that March 2020 to July 2020 stipends (N30, 000/month) were not paid as and when due. Our findings revealed that stipends settlement is often not timely since Sadiya Farouq, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development of Nigeria took over Nigeria's National Social Investment Programmes (NSIPs) role in August 2019.

AllNews observed that federal workers usually receive their salaries between the 25th and 30th of each month. But N-Power beneficiaries – classified as Federal Government workers too – do not have a consistent payday.

Billions of naira have been spent on the N-Power programme since its inception in December 2016.

The Federal Government’s N-Power scheme is currently looking to engage more graduate youths. They will be deployed to provide public services in teaching, health, agriculture, tax and monitoring.
