N-Power Beneficiaries Groan Nationwide As Stipends ‘Hang’

Beneficiaries of the N-Power scheme across the nation are groaning as a result of the non-payment of their July stipends, Concise News observed.

Recall that March stipends were not paid as and when due. However, our findings revealed that beneficiaries received their salary on the due date in the months of April and May.

This online news medium noticed that federal workers usually receive their salaries between 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 currently engages no fewer than 500,000 youth graduates deployed to provide public health services in teaching, health, agriculture and tax and monitoring.

It also engages another 200,000 non-graduates in training or on attachment to organisations as interns.
