There are rumor circulating that the reason behind the delay in NPower January 2020 stipends payment was as a result of consideration to increase NPower volunteers stipends to N45,000 because the NYSC allowance was also increased to N33,000 inline with the new minimum wage increment.
However, increment of NPower beneficiaries stipends rumor might be a fallacy though sound good and when truly implemented would enable the volunteers do things that they find hard to do even when the management have encourage them overtime from the onset to always save out of their monthly stipends.
The fact still remain that without a proper statement from the management of NPower regarding any increment in volunteers stipends, no one should put their optimum expectation on rumor that could be a fallacy to avoid disappointment.
Stipends payment delay for NPower volunteers is something they are getting used to but are not pleased with. Though the stipend will only get delay but will be paid eventually when the management are ready. So NPower volunteers should remain calm as usual as they await for the management to effect the payment of January 2020 stipends.
Finally, as an NPower volunteer your prayer should always focus on what you are advocating for be it permanency or payment increment and hope for better things for NPower volunteers because any good deed for the volunteers is for the betterment of Nigeria.
