NPower Update: Four Reasons Why Some Batch C Stream 1 Beneficiaries Might Not Receive Their October Stipend
If you are one of the Batch C Stream 1 Beneficiaries and you are yet to receive your October Stipend, then this article is for you, make sure you read until the end.
It’s no longer news that the Ministry released a notice stating that one of the reason why some beneficiaries have not received their October Stipend is due to their account is not yet validated.
Apart from beneficiary account not been validated, there are other reasons which might cause a beneficiary not to receive his/her monthly stipend which we will be looking at in this article.
Following the restructuring of the N-Power Programme by the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, the intention of some N-power Beneficiaries to play smart will be short-lived.
Beginning with the Batch A and B N-power Beneficiaries, the Ministry taking over the affairs of the N-power Programme in 2020, transferred the N-power payment system to the Government Integrated Financial Management Information System server.
The result was that 14,026 beneficiaries were flagged by the Payment System and their Stipends were unpaid from then.
Sadiya Umar Farouk, the Humanitarian Affairs Minister, has already identified broadly two categories of N-power Beneficiaries who were detected by the Government Payment System.
According to her:
1. Beneficiaries having multiple accounts tied to the Government Payment Systems.
2. Beneficiaries who are already working with Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDA).
3. Beneficiaries who are already participating in other Schemes.
4. Beneficiaries who are currently participating in the National Youth Service Corps.
According to the Minister, such Categories of N-power Beneficiaries clearly violate the regulations guiding the N-Power volunteer programme and could amount to gross misconduct and corruption.
