BREAKING: FG Begins NPower November Stipend Payment To Beneficiaries

Published

on

The Editor Nigeria gathered that beneficiaries of the Federal Government’s N-Power scheme have started receiving bank alerts of N30, 000 for their November 2021 stipend.

Some volunteers (Batch C) who spoke to The Editor Nigeria on condition of anonymity confirmed the development on Tuesday morning.

It would be recalled that since the famed scheme was transferred to the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development from the office of the Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo in October 2020, complaints of recurrent delay in stipends payment have been registered.

The Editor Nigeria noticed that federal workers usually receive their salaries between the 25th and 30th of each month.

However, N-Power graduate beneficiaries – classified as Federal Government workers too – do not have a consistent payday.

Every month, the Federal Government spends more than N15 billion as stipends on 510,000 volunteers of the N-Power scheme, a component of the National Social Investment Programmes (N-SIP).

Recognised as one of the largest post-tertiary employment programmes in Africa, the Muhammadu Buhari government sees the scheme as one of its major achievements.

Beneficiaries do not need high-wire connections as the screening process was largely transparent and efficient.

N-Teach is the most popular of the N-SIP, which also focuses on health, agriculture,and public finance.

Due to the deficiency in the number of teaching staff in public schools, many “unemployed graduates” were deployed to schools in order to complement the efforts of the staff on ground.
