Beneficiaries of the Federal Government’s N-Power programme are thoroughly displeased with the non-payment of their October stipend.

Concise News reports that beneficiaries’ stipends are not usually paid as and when due. Hence, some of the volunteers have besieged public platforms to call the attention of concerned Nigerian public office holders to the current situation as the eleventh month of the year enters day ten.

Every month, the Nigerian government spends about N15 billion as stipends on over 500,000 volunteers of  the N-Power scheme, a component of the National Social Investment Programmes (N-SIP).

These payees earn a monthly stipend of N30, 000 (approximately 83 USD).

The scheme also engages another 200,000 non-graduates in training or on attachment to organisations as interns.
