N-Power Stipends: 'We'll Report You To National Assembly' - Beneficiaries Fume At Scheme

   

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.
