Update on Npower July and August 2019 Salary payment
Update from NAN: payment of N-Teach, N-Agro, N-Tech, N-Hardware, N-Software, N-Health monthly stipends had always been delayed since March 2019, saying their July and august stipend had yet to be paid.
“Our hope was dashed during the Sallah celebration because our July stipend was not paid even till now. We felt disappointed.
“We are calling on the attention of the Vice President, Prof. Osinbajo, to intervene so that our stipends can be timely paid,’’ Sanni said.
Another beneficiary, Mrs Joy Awosanmi, said: “we don’t know why our stipend is being delaying now, unlike when we use to get it the same time federal workers get their salaries.
“We want the vice president to speak to us on the matter, because we are hearing rumour that the federal government wants to discontinue the programme,’’ she said.
On his part, Mr Usman Abdullahi, N-Power Agro, said the delay in payment of his stipend was affecting his fishery business.
“It is unfortunate I cannot get cash to buy fish meal for the fish.
“We are appealing to the federal government to help us to look into the matter and ensure regular and timely payment of our stipend,’’ Abdullahi said.
Mr Femi Bolaji, the Unit Head of N-Power Programme in Kogi, urged the beneficiaries to be patient, assuring them that everything would soon be normalised.
Bolaji told NAN that the beneficiaries had also been coming to their office to make enquiries on why their stipends were being delayed, noting that payment were made directly from Abuja and not at the state level.
Reasons for Npower Stipends Payment being delayed 2019
According to Mr Femi Bolaji, the Unit Head of N-Power Programme in Kogi, “My thinking is that since the new ministers and special advisers are to be appointed, processing of such huge bill in excess of N15 billion monthly for beneficiaries nationwide might not be as smooth as it should be, compared to when ministers, special advisers and SSAs were on ground.
Effort is on to contact the national office to send out a public announcement regarding this recent delay in payment of stipends for N-Power beneficiaries
