NPower Recovers Money To Pay 8 Months Beneficiaries Debt
The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation has successfully recovered funds that were held by a consultant for several months, affecting the N-Power beneficiaries. In a recent meeting with representatives of the N-Power beneficiaries, Mr. Akindele, the National Program Manager of N-Power, confirmed the recovery of these funds and provided reassuring news for the beneficiaries.
Mr. Akindele stated, “Payment for N-Power Beneficiaries Batch C who have been owed for eight months will begin soon.” This announcement comes as a relief to the beneficiaries who have been awaiting their payments.
Additionally, the National Program Manager emphasized that Dr. Betta Edu, the Honourable Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, has been diligently working to address irregularities within the N-Power Program and other social investment programs. These irregularities had eroded the trust of the common man in the government’s ability to provide social safety nets. Dr. Betta Edu is committed to resolving these issues and fulfilling President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Mandate for Nigerians.
Among the irregularities being addressed is the non-payment of monthly allowances to many N-Power beneficiaries. These payments were delayed due to issues with the consultant managing the enrollment and payment system, whose contract had already expired. The recovery of these funds is a significant step toward enabling the payment of beneficiaries.
The National Program Manager called for patience from young Nigerians, assuring them that the ongoing restructuring is in their best interest and will lead to the expansion of the N-POWER program to accommodate millions of young people. President Tinubu’s commitment to eradicating poverty remains steadfast, and the government is working diligently to deliver on this promise.
This development signals a positive step toward resolving the issues that have affected N-Power beneficiaries and ensuring that the program can reach a broader audience, ultimately contributing to poverty alleviation in Nigeria.
