The minister of humanitarian affairs, disaster management and social development HM Sadiya Umar Farouq is in a press briefing to respond to the nonpayment of stipends of N-Power beneficiaries. The minister shared this update on her twitter handle.
Since we came into office, we have been working on a needs and numbers-based assessment of NPower to reposition it for the future — in order to ensure that the high expectations of young Nigerians that are participating in the program are met in the short, medium and long-term.
We have also been working on a transition program for those that are progressing out of NPower — after their 24months in the program have elapsed. Alongside this, we preparing to receive a new intake of participants in the program, who will then participate for 24 months before transitioning on to greater things.
Beneficiaries will receive their outstanding allowances on 20th December, 2019. watch video below:
