“Still on 2016 Batch,” he said, “some of you who are expecting backlog payments in terms of you had skipped some payments because you had payment challenges, now you have been paid and continue to get paid but you are expecting a few more months, maybe 2 or 3 months thereabout.
“I am told that about 602 of you have now been successfully confirmed based on all the verification documents you have uploaded to the support team and so you are currently in the next set of backlog payments that we will processed perhaps at the earliest between the end of February and March, 602 of you will expect payment.
“Of course those of you in Batch 1, which is again the 2016 Batch that keep expressing concerns around your faith in the program.

“We have all heard your testimonies; you have not hidden your testimonies about the fact that you all had your doubts about this program but we shocked your doubt and we have continued to keep to our words and to every promise that were made to you.”
