Beneficiaries of the Federal Government’s N-Power scheme are fuming over what they describe as ‘habitual delay of their monthly stipends’, Concise News reports.

Checks by this online news medium revealed that beneficiaries nationwide are yet to get paid their last month’s stipends.

Being the third day of a new month, beneficiaries are unhappy with the constant delay.

Every month, the Federal Government spends about N15 billion as stipends on over 500,000 volunteers of  the N-Power scheme, a component of the National Social Investment Programmes (N-SIP).

These beneficiaries earn a monthly stipend of N30, 000 (82.99 USD).

Dubbed as the largest post-tertiary employment programme 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.

Headquartered under the office of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, 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.

In 2016 when the N-Power programme started, 200,000 beneficiaries were selected and deployed to their Primary Place of Assignment (PPA) out of about 700,000 Nigerian graduates who reportedly applied.

Two batches have been recruited since the launch of the programme.
