earlier today, NPower took to their various social media channels to update NPower volunteer on what they need to know about the march stipends payment inscription and delays for volunteers yet to get their march stipends. Read below the latest Npower today news update shared by NPower team:
Some pertinent information as regards N-Power volunteers and trainees' payment in the month of March 2020.
Firstly, this is to apologize for the delay experienced in the payment of March N-Power stipends. Part of the reason is due to a change in the Payment platform used for payments in the bid to harmonize government payroll for effective and efficient disbursements of salaries to federal government employees and stipends to federal government social investment beneficiaries. Payment on this platform for N-Power beneficiaries commenced on 16th April, 2020 and is still ongoing.
This change in payment platform is responsible for the new inscription of "Federal Government of Nigeria . FGN FEDER” contained in the credit alerts received by beneficiaries, which is different from the usual “N-Power March that would have accompanied previous payments via the NIBSS payment platform. This was particularly for March stipends and will be same going forward.
We are also aware that some beneficiaries eligible for payment are yet to receive their stipends, while some exited and resigned beneficiaries did receive payments. The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs Disaster Management & Social Development is currently reconciling payment accounts with the relevant stakeholders. Please be rest assured that this will be resolved and every active and validated beneficiary in the programme shall get paid and required reversals will be effected where necessary.
Please remain calm and continue to stay safe.
