N-Power: Beneficiaries Expectant Of January Stipend
Beneficiaries of the Federal Government N-Power initiative are already inquiring when they will be paid their January stipend, Concise News reports.
Being the 29th day of the month, its just two days to a new month, and Batch A and Batch B volunteers are anxious to get paid.
It is customary of N-Power to delay payments. But beneficiaries hope the scheme changes its ways.
The N-Power was introduced in 2016 by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration “to imbibe the entrepreneurship culture in the Nigerian youth aged between 18 and 35 — both graduates and non-graduates”.
An estimated 500,000 youths across the country are currently engaged in the scheme, providing services in the country’s education, health, agriculture sectors and local government offices with a monthly N30,000 (approximately 83 US Dollars) stipend.
The N-Power scheme consist of N-Teach, N-Tax, N-Health, N-Agro among others.
