A scheme of the Federal Government‘s social investment programmes, N-Power, has said that stipends for the month of May will be paid “shortly”, Concise News reports.

The Twitter handle of the programme was responding to a query from a beneficiary, believed to be a Muslim, who is expecting the payment to prepare for Eid ul-Fitr (“Festival of Breaking the Fast”). Eid holiday is on Tuesday and Wednesday.
