One of the volunteers said it is an injustice to delay the payment of beneficiaries in the country.
According to him, “Imagine what a family would be passing through when stipends are not paid at when due.
“It would be an injustice if other agencies of Federal govt have received their October salary by now including those at the helms of N-Power affairs while beneficiaries are yet to receive their monthly stipend.”
Another volunteer, Mahmud Salihu Kaura tweeted, “We are celebrating our Muslim’s festival in 3 consecutive time without stipend this year, what type of injustice is this?”
The volunteers made their grievances known when N-Power on social media wished Muslims volunteers a happy celebration of Id el Maulud”
“We hope you have an amazing day.”
But beneficiaries fired back at the managers of the social media platforms.
Olugbade tweeted, “How do you want them to celebrate when you refused to pay their stipend? The delay and the epileptic style of stipend payment is discouraging and annoying.”
“We are not smiling during this celebration. We always beg before payment are made every month,” Isaac Maiyanga tweeted.
Another beneficiary, probably one of the 2016 batch said, “If the plans of npower is to disengage 2016 batch of npower.
I doubt if Npower can be transparent again. It would have been better if it is under Vice Presidency but under the new ministry of season Politicians it is bound to fail i dont pray for that though

“I want you the authority to no you will create more poverty in the country, unemployment will rise, I pray you guys think it over if not, God is watching and he never sleeps,” Adetoro Adebola said.
At the time of compiling this report, N-Power is quiet about the October 2019 stipend.
