N-Power unresolved Issues
Meanwhile, the federal government of Nigeria has promised all Batch A and Batch B beneficiaries of the N-Power scheme that all issues about their entitlements in the scheme will be addressed.
Following the announcement by the government that current enrollees of the N-Power scheme (Batch A) will exit June 30, 2020 while (Batch B) will exit the programme on July 31, 2020, many current beneficiaries of the scheme have started expressing anxiety over various unresolved issues including unpaid stipends, and devices which they are yet to get as promised.
Responding to the agitations by the beneficiaries, the N-Power scheme on Monday morning in a tweet from its official Twitter account promised that all outstanding issues will be addressed.
“To our Batch A and Batch B beneficiaries,”
“We have seen your questions on the exit plan, backlogs and devices.”
“In the following days, these issues will be addressed individually. Please stay tuned to our social media pages for updates.
