Beneficiaries of the Nigerian Government’s N-Power initiative are calling on the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development to pay their January stipend, Concise News reports.

The writer gathered that as of 1: 50pm today, roughly 500, 000 beneficiaries nationwide under the scheme are yet to be settled their last month pay.

The N-Power is a graduate scheme under the National Social Investment Programmes (NSIPs), and it has components such as the N-Teach, N-Agro, N-Health and N-Tax.

Beneficiaries under this scheme are posted to Place of Primary Assignments (PPAs) and are entitled to N30, 000 (approximately 83 US Dollars) monthly stipend.

Since its launch in 2016, two batches have been recruited by the apex government.

These beneficiaries’ (also addressed as volunteers) pay have always been irregular and the fate of the pioneer batch is uncertain, with constant talks of exit plan.

Check out some reactions below:

Npower volunteers are still not paid their stipend for month of January. I wonder the kind of excuse they will give this time. The NextLevel is hitting hard.

This is no longer an empowerment scheme but punishment cause beneficiaries have to complain n laments b4 stipends are paid. The question is what exactly is the cause of this repeated problem always, this is not fair….

Most we cry out every month end before you pay us?
I don’t understand this again. Someone will carry out his Primary assignment.. but when the month ends.. Nothing.
Not even a statement to explain the cause of the delay.
