Beneficiaries of the federal government socio-economic investment programme Npower are set to heave a sigh of relief this week as payment is set to commence baring any last minute change, a reliable source has disclosed.
The Npower programme has been negatively affected by late payment of stipends. Beneficiaries are entitled to a monthly stipend of thirty thousand naira. Report however shows that the last time payment was made to the beneficiaries was last year. This has affected the beneficiaries, many of which depend solely on the stipends for survival.
Information says all is now ready for payments to commence this week as the payments have finally been cleared by the federal ministry of finance.
Npower itself has never bother to explain reasons for late payment and enquiries sent to its official facebook page is always responded with “Payment will commence shortly” even though payment may not commence for weeks.
