There is an indication that the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development will begin the payment of delayed January Stipends of beneficiaries of its social investment programme, N-Power today.
This follows series of agitations from the aggrieved beneficiaries.
One of the beneficiaries, Muhammad Mudathir, who made an enquiry on the likely payment date on Twitter had asked:
@npower_ng Good Morning the management, it’s being long we haven’t got any update concerning our stipend, what happened?
And the N-Power Team replied thus:
You will receive your stipends shortly, please bear with us.
The first batch of the programme was long supposed to have ended but the inability of the new ministry to facilitate a transition scheme for the beneficiaries has resulted in the delay even as the government now struggles to make the payment from October 2019.
