Beneficiaries of the Federal Government N-Power initiative are still inquiring when they will be paid their outstanding stipends, AllNews reports.
Being the 27th day of the month, it's just four days to a new month, and Batch A and Batch B volunteers are anxious to get paid their owed allowance.
It is customary for N-Power to delay payments but beneficiaries hope the scheme changes its ways.
The N-Power was introduced in 2016 by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration “to imbibe the entrepreneurship culture in the Nigerian youth aged between 18 and 35 — both graduates and non-graduates”.
An estimated 500,000 youths across the country are currently engaged in the scheme, providing services in the country’s education, health, agriculture sectors, and local government offices with a monthly N30,000 (approximately 78 US Dollars) stipend.
The N-Power scheme consists of N-Teach, N-Tax, N-Health, N-Agro among others.

I think it will help us all, if you Npower team can tell us why we have not been paid March and April stipend. It is obvious that those complaining that they have not been paid are those that were not paid for March. At least, tell us where we have faulted.
