Nether the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development, headed by Unar Sadiya Farouq nor the office Accountant General of the Federation has given reason(s) for the delay of Stipends and backlogs related issues lately.
Batch B’s volunteers of the Npower scheme were dislodged from the programme without going home with their July’s stipend- an outrage many condemned and tagged inappropriate.
The silence maintained by the two side’s shows “carefree” attitude of public offices to the public
Volunteers of the Npower Programme have taken to social media demanding the immediate release of their earned stipends
Similarly, the 14,000 outstanding stipends owed from March to July, 2020 is yet to get the needed attention from concerned authorities
Many volunteers now count on the President’s Independence Day speech, which will be delivered on first October, 2020. Marking the nation’s 60th independent
It is worthy to mention that, both Sadiya and the office Accountant General of the Federation had once promised to rectify these issues, but failed to take put their words into action, and the delay lingers
Npower states executives had a Press release in Illorin, the Kwara state capital, North Central Nigeria, where they appealed to the presidency and the national Assembly to pay all stipends and backlogs to mitigate the coviv-19 pandemic on volunteers
“ Over 14,000 N-Power Beneficiaries have not been paid their monthly stipend since the month of March to July, 2020 with the claim from Hon. Minister Hajia Sadia Umar Farouq that it was caused by GIFMIS new payment platform that flagged their account.
Not resolving to pay them their stipends till date after her promise, which is totally inhuman because they have been suffering for the past 5 months without payment.
We implore the Federal Government to quickly implement the transition program for the exited N-Power Volunteers latest by 1st October, 2020 to reduce the suffering already meted on us.
Therefore, we enjoin volunteers across the country to remain calm, focus and steadfast as we await the next line of action after October 1st speech of President Muhammadu Buhari. By then, we would have known the plan the government has for us.
The 5 months unpaid stipends to 14,000 Volunteers, outstanding backlogs, the July stipends for Batch B should be released to the beneficiaries without further delay”-Npower State Executive Press Release 2020
