Sadiya Farouq -N-Power July Stipend Payment update

The disengaged Batch A and B beneficiaries of the Federal Government’s N-Power programme have still not been paid their July stipend, 58 days after their disengagement from the famed N-Power scheme, Empiregist reports.

It would be recalled that Batch A beneficiaries exited the programme on June 30 after four years in the famed scheme, while their Batch B counterparts officially made their exit on July 31st – after two years.

This has made many of them furious with the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, the federal department overseeing Nigeria’s social investment programmes.
