N-Power: Calm Restored After September Stipends Settlement
N-Power beneficiaries now paid their September stipends
Beneficiaries of the Federal Government’s social investment programme had been lamenting the delay in payment of last month’s stipend.
But this online news medium observed that since payment commenced on Monday, beneficiaries who stormed social media to voice their displeasure over the non-payment of their stipends have now mellowed.
Concise News noticed that federal workers usually receive their salaries between 25th and 30th of each month. But N-Power beneficiaries – classified as Federal Government workers too – do not have a consistent payday.
Billions of naira have been spent on the N-Power programme since its inception in December 2016.
The N-Power scheme currently engages no fewer than 500,000 youth graduates deployed to provide public health services in teaching, health, agriculture and tax and monitoring.
These graduate beneficiaries earn a monthly stipend of N30, 000 (82.75 USD).
N-Power also engages another 200,000 non-graduates in training or on attachment to organisations as interns.
