N-Power Stipend: ‘You’re Inflicting Disaster On Us’ – Beneficiaries Tell Humanitarian Minister


The National Social Investment Programmes NSIP (an initiative the N-Power scheme is one of it’s elements), which was formerly under the office of the vice-president, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and managed by Hajia Maryam Uwais, special adviser to the president on social intervention, was moved to the ministry of humanitarian affairs, disaster management, and social development on October 1

Beneficiaries of the Federal Government’s N-Power initiative are calling on the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to pay their January stipend as the month of February halves, Concise News reports.

The Federal Government in November, 2020 said it spent N360 billion in two years to pay 500,000 graduates under its N-Power scheme.

The government said the payments started in 2016 with graduates employed under the scheme getting N30,000 (approximately 83 US Dollars) monthly stipend.

Currently, the beneficiaries are thoroughly displeased with Sadiya Umar Farouq, Nigeria’s Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.

See some reactions below:

No-matter how much you earn for a work, delay of payment is a greatest barrier to proper budgeting and planning. After appreciating the FGN, I advice that, if necessary, a lot more remains to be done to avoid delay in paying Npower beneficiaries.
