Thousands of Nigerian youth under the famed scheme of the Muhammadu Buhari administration are entitled to N30, 000 (approximately 83 US Dollars) monthly stipend. However, their pay has not been regular, this writer gathered from several volunteers.

This writer 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.

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

Today is the third day of the second month of the year, yet, beneficiaries have not been settled their January stipend.
