It’s a new week, and a new working day, hence, beneficiaries of the Federal Government N-Power scheme are eagerly awaiting payment of their October stipend.
Concise News understands that payment (N30, 000 monthly stipend) is yet to made for around 500,000 volunteers nationwide. That we can affirm as at the time of publishing this report.
Furthermore, this online news medium observed that beneficiaries are frustrated with the current situation.
See reactions from beneficiaries on Monday:
It has come to our notice that our stipend is delayed over the promised time and we all know that the program was fully funded. We clearly wants to know the problem of the delay in payment or if the program can no more ascertain to it’s promise when it was funded. pic.twitter.com/bcgDMQoTv2

The @npower_ng initiative is a wonderful step in the right direction, but when you start to delay the little stipend, you turn the whole project to a scam and a shallow one. Treat your volunteers with respect it’s not easy taking over 500 students. @MBuhari @fkeyamo
