Sadiya Umar Farouq

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq, says plans are in the works towards absorbing excited and eligible N-power beneficiaries into government programs.

The minister, in a statement on Thursday by her spokesperson, Nneka Anibeze, requested that the ex-beneficiaries of the social scheme give her more time.

She said: “We’ve directed focal persons of National Social Investment Programmes in the states to submit an updated list of the exited N-power beneficiaries that are interested in participating in the transition plans of the ministry.”

She also assured that the payment of the outstanding stipends for the exited N-power Batches A and B beneficiaries had been approved.

“The approval for payments for up to the month of June 2020 for the two Batches has already been forwarded to the office of the Accountant-General of the Federation for final checks and payments.

“The only outstanding approval waiting to be forwarded to AGF’s Office is for the payment of July Stipends for batch B beneficiaries,” she said.

The statement said the ministry had requested the details of those affected and the reasons for their rejection from the AGF Office and will take it up from there.

It added: “However if the rejection was done in error, those affected should rest assured that they’ll be paid all that is due to them as soon as the error is rectified by the AGFʼs office.”
