FG Begins Payment of N1.3Billion To 9,066 N-Power Exited Beneficiaries

Last Updated on September 20, 2021 by Ope Quadri

The payment of five months backlogs owed 9,066 former N-Power beneficiaries in batch A and B amounting to N1,359,900,000 has begun, the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development has said.

The ministry stated this after failing three times it promised to pay the backlogs of the exited workers of the N-Power programme.

In January 2021, it promised to clear the five months backlogs owed the former volunteers, Nneka Nkem, Special Assistant, Media & Publicity to the Hon Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development had said.

Batch A beneficiaries included the first batch who came on board in 2016 while the second batch (or batch B) were recruited in 2018.

Why The Delay:

If you are wondering why it took the government several months which ordinarily shouldn’t have taken more than a week, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Bashir Alkali, stated that the ministry carried out a detailed investigation in collaboration with relevant government MDAs.

According to him, out of the 14,021 accounts that were flagged, only 9,066 beneficiaries were cleared for final payment.

Recall that accounts of 14,021 volunteers were flagged in March 2020 by the Government Integrated Financial Management Information System, GIFMIS, for various reasons. GIFMIS is Federal Government payment system.

Analysis:

5months X N30,000 = N150,000

N150,000 X 9,066 beneficiaries = N1,359,900,000

We gathered that they have started receiving credit alerts since Friday, September 17, 2021

FG Withholds 4,955 Beneficiaries’ Salaries
